I shot my last beach session of the year a couple of weeks ago with the B family. I love Fontana Beach and the weather was perfect! Part of me wishes I could move this whole spot to Rockford, but I love going up to visit (I grew up in the Lake Geneva area) and it feels like a mini vacation away.
I was so excited to get to photograph this family. I had wanted to be able to do their little guy’s newborn photos, but I had just had Matthew and was on maternity leave. Everything came together so well this time and I just love how these turned out. Now, just two weeks later, the temperature outside has quickly plummeted to a chilly 50º and I’m looking at these wishing I could stretch out summer just a little bit longer. I love fall, but I really love being able to go outside without even wondering if I need a coat! Oh well, for now I will enjoy editing the rest of my summer sessions and pretend the warmth on my screen is outside, too
I just can’t get over how beautiful little Heidi is. She was just 10 days old. She was wide awake at the end! She’s got such a cute little face.
How about a little throwback to when these two little guys were newborns? Such cuties!
They have grown up so much, but they are still just as cute! I get such a kick out of brothers and their silliness.
Three-year-olds can be super challenging to capture in a still, but at the same time, when you do catch them, they give you the most energetic and happy expressions. My tip for the day: turn up your shutter speed and get ready to move!
I photographed Juliana in one of my favorite spots in the Rockford area: a small park known only to runners, it seems. I brought my handmade swing (thanks Etsy!) which she loved so much that she didn’t want to leave it. She looks pretty cute on it!
