Lifestyle Photography Fun | Alton, Illinois Family Portrait Photographer

So this is the first of four blog posts coming this week. I spent a few days in Dallas at the tail end of December and some of my most favorite clients took me up on the opportunity to do a little shooting while I was there.

Like Kristin and her clan of stunning children. And really, I'm not sure she and her husband could make unattractive kids. This family is dear to my heart because I've shot two of her births. There's something really awesome about watching kids grow up in front of your lens. When tiny Joon came into view I nearly hit the ground. It's literally been a YEAR since I saw him. Last time he was a teeny, tiny two week old newborn.

Talk about a laid back, fun, lifestyle family photo shoot. It wasn't intended to be a "concept" shoot necessarily but it sort of bled into that with my borrowing a chalk board for a fun prop and them bringing a few old, colorful quilts. I'd LOVE to do more prop/location themed shoots this year! Add to their friendly, easygoing vibe a warm December afternoon with the most stunning golden sunshine you've ever seen and, well, Kristin and I were very, very happy girls. Enjoy!

This is Huck. He used to look like this:


Now he looks like this!!!!


Pretty cute, eh?

Baby Brother Joon one year ago (almost exactly!!!)


And now he's a lady killer, I tell ya.....


Those big, brown eyes take my breath away, they do.


I wasn't lucky enough to be at this Sweet Thang's birth, but I love her all the same. I originally met her at her beautiful Mama's maternity session (waaay back when I didn't even offer portraiture!) and she's a trip. Always fun times when Miss Millie is around. ;)



If you'd be interested in a different type of family photoshoot... just a little off the beaten path and a bit more fun than the typical- contact me! Spring dates are booking now and concept sessions ARE available in the Alton area. :)
