It can often be hard to get the family all together when you aren’t close but one wonderful thing about us being located in central Illinois and easy to access from Bloomington, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Peoria, Springfield, Champaign, etc is that we can be your central meeting location and coordinate with you and your family to bring everyone together for a whole family portrait!
That’s exactly what we did for this beautiful family. And it was wonderful to meet them on session and create images that can bring them all together even when they are afar.
I have such a soft spot in my heart (and a HUGE burst of gratitude) for the families that have been with me for years. I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been working with Myra since before this little lady existed! It’s been a treat to watch her grow (check out her first birthday session here) and we had such fun on her session this year playing in the dandelions.
Some couple’s happiness and joy is just infectious and that’s so true of Jessica and Lucas. They completely embraced their time together on session and had so much fun while we created images designed to show off that relationship. So often in the hecticness of prep for the session (getting clothes together, hair and makeup done, worrying about leaving on time, checking the weather – is it too hot? will it rain?) we can forget or lose sight of the fact that for an hour it’s all about YOU… and for a couple’s session about your love.
How many other times do you get to spend a hour of your day without cell phones, no notifications, no TV, no dishes or laundry begging to be done… just you two, together. Holding hands, hugging, kissing, laughing at eachother! These two soaked it up and it was such a joy to be a part of this session with them. Sometimes, sessions are as much about the experience as they are the final images and this was one of those times.
If an hour (or even 15 minutes) away from the hustle and grind of your daily life to hang out with the one(s) you love most sounds like just what you need, head over to www.sjanephotography.com and click BOOK NOW to reserve your fall session. We have both full sessions and short Limited Edition sessions left and would love to save a spot for YOU.
