FAMILY

What do you do when you find a new spot and need a "test" family? You ask one of your absolute favorite families to do a model shoot.  Soon you'll see why.  Lola is the little girl and she has a personality the size of the state.  She is always so much fun and after we kept the Smarties flowing she was our best friend.  Those little pink glasses magnify the size of her eyes and make her even more fun.  This session was an absolute blast and while it was about an hour away it was worth the drive.

You can't stay in a bad mood around her!

I love this shot!

She is so infectious, I can't help but laugh when  I  see this.

I could've easily posted three times as much as I did,  when the location, subject and light cooperate great things happen!

Summer is wrapping up here in central Illinois 'unofficially' this weekend.  We did however catch the tail end of the sunflower patch and was able to kick out a family shoot.  While we found it and only had about 7-10 days before they went away for the season we will definitely be pro-active next year and kick out a lot sunflower shoots.  So here is a sample of the sunflower mini.  So watch for the promo next year, sunflowers are cool.

It was so hot but they rocked it!

Sometimes in this photography life you meet people that you would easily drive 2 1/2 hrs for their shoot.  This is that family.  We have known the Bailey's in a couple different aspects for years now and it was a no brainer to drive to them.  The day was packed full of mini shoots before and I still need to put up a sample of those also.  The location was Rockford IL and we were still hoping spring would......spring!!  Sometimes we love meeting new people but sometimes its nice to reshoot old friends because it takes away the nerves and cautiousness.  We can shoot, then chat and laugh about something while the next shot is getting set.  Hey there Bailey's we need to do this again...

This is Austin, the oldest son and also graduating this year.  Of course we tossed in a couple senior shots.  This covered bridge was a pretty cool spot.
