Ahhhh, summer.  Flip flops, sandals, warm days, shorts, playing catch in the backyard, and no jackets or layers.  I repeat, no jackets or layers.  Just hanging out at your friend’s beautiful rustic property in Maple Park in western Kane County for some sweet family memories, captured to treasure and look back on for years to come!

I had so much fun at this summer photo session with this sweet and incredibly fun (and silly!) family.  We let the kids run around, pick some wildflowers, trek through some prairie grasses, and watch the barn kitties play.  Since the foundation of all families is the parents, we made sure to grab a few images of mom and dad while the kids played in the background.

Things to remember for outdoors family photography sessions: expect the unexpected, bring baby wipes just in case, they will be hungry and thirsty even if they *just* ate dinner before you left (wish I was kidding, but it’s so true!), an extra change of clothes is never a bad idea, be prepared to laugh and giggle, and just let the kiddos be kiddos.

Til next time, V family!!!
