Fall Family Portraits: Rainy Day

Chicagoland, Illinois
It’s amazing how quickly babies grow. I took some baby portraits of Joey in the summer, and here he is with his brother and sister six months later.

It’s raining outside so I take some photos of the awesome Nora indoors.

The rain slows down and we run outside for a quick family photo.

Fall Family Portraits: Love Me or Leaf Me

Chicagoland, Illinois
I love photographing families in fall. Cute sweaters, red cheeks and autumn colors – what’s not to love?

Mason is a little shy when I first meet him.

Isn’t he handsome?

Look, a leaf!

What a beautiful family! I love the colors they’re wearing, too. Mason in his blue and gray argyle sweater, mom with the matching blue shirt and burnt umber v-neck sweater, and dad in a classic white button down shirt.

Fall Family Portraits: Leaf Me Alone

Chicagoland, Illinois
Two-year-olds are usually the most difficult to photograph. They don’t like to stand still and have a mind of their own. These are not bad things, just challenging.

Archer was no different.

Archer did not like standing still. (All the the house photos in this blog post have the number blurred out for privacy reasons.)

Mom and Dad would sit and Archer would run.

The key to photos of kids is action shots. Archer loves the leaves so why not let him have fun? As Archer is playing, I keep taking photos.

Finally, even this two-year-old is a little tired and wants to rest.
