This family wanted to cover all of their photography session bases – one high school senior, one eighth grader, one dog, and of course, the family! And would I fly from Elburn, IL, to Virginia to take all of these pictures? Of course!! I went to high school with mom and dad, and I was so humbled and honored when they asked me to fly out for a weekend of photos. We needed mother nature on our side to capture some awesome memories, and for the most part, she cooperated. I can’t believe one of their boys is off to college this fall, while the other starts high school! It seems like just yesterday that we were buying prom dresses and calling each other on the party line at Illinois State University. Where does the time go?
We prepared for this photo session by researching beautiful locations, discussing what they should wear, what colors would look great together, and to see if there were any photos or location spots that we did not want to miss. I typically have photography sessions in Kane, DeKalb, DuPage, and Kendall counties in northern Illinois. So I needed some help from my friends to pick out the prettiest spots in their hometown. And they rocked it!
Their absolutely adorable dog, Cinnamon, is a huge part of their family. So of course we included her in family photos! Congrats to these handsome young men, who both have incredibly bright futures ahead!
