The Beukinga Family

Do you remember that f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g Saturday afternoon a couple of weeks ago, yep this was it! But goodness, such a beautiful family inside and out! Some of my favorites from our mini session together.

The Lovell Family

We’ve had the pleasure of knowing this family since we arrived in a snowy Chicago almost two years ago. Megan and I first got to know each other at a Mom’s group and since then our girls have become the sweetest BFF’s. The hand holding, fight like they’re your sister kind!

We spent Saturday morning walking around Humboldt park, admiring all the Fall leaves and ducking the birds (sorry Megan!). The weather has been amazing and what better way to enjoy it, than with a lil’ photo shoot!?! It might have ended with pie too, so I’d say it was a pretty good Saturday!

Humboldt Park

Scouting out a few spots for a fun family shoot this weekend and fell in love with the colors of Humboldt Park!!! Autumn in Chicago, you are seriously beautiful. I loved catching these little moments along the way and just hearing Summer’s voice as I edit them…“N-o-r-r-i-e look at Mommy.” Summer girl thanks for always being my helper!!
