I truly love all my clients and their families, but there is something extra special about capturing one of your best friends that you’ve known since middle school – and now they have a new baby themselves!
I was so thrilled when Carol asked me to take some fall portraits for her and her husband Alex’s growing family. We actually took these photos in their hometown of Plainfield, Illinois at Settlers’ Park which was a fun change of scenery as I usually do all my family photography sessions in Denver or in the mountains (check out this adorable session with the Tomkin family). It was also the first time I got to finally meet her adorable daughter Samantha. Photographing my new Goddaughter made for just the perfect session!
Samantha looked adorable in her yellow fall dress and little booties. She loved taking a few steps with mom and dad for the camera! Towards the end of the evening, Samantha was ready for some mom snuggles. Although they thought I was putting my camera away – I grabbed one of my favorite photos of our time together. Check that one out at the very end!
Samantha, Carol and Alex – it was so much fun taking photos for you and I can’t wait to watch your loving family grow even more as the years go on!
