When I hit a milestone on my facebook page, I decided to raffle off a mini session to my clients. This beautiful family happened to be the lucky winners and boy did they deserve it!
This beautiful family was just hands down amazing. Mom and I clicked right away as we both figured out we grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. We ended up doing their session on a Thursday night since mom works weekends. I made sure it was possible for them to have family photos not just pictures of their cute kiddos. So one night after my husband got home from work, I ventured out to this lovely session to capture all of this family's love, and beautiful moments at a trail head down the road!
It was very cloudy night with random bursts of sunlight. For a 7pm bedtime (we started at 6:30pm) the twins were amazingly happy and playful. I was able to capture such beautiful, real moments of them as a family, which I think make for the best family portraits. Little miss Mary was interested in everything and George was just as happy as can be! Mom and Dad were just the best! I've never seen a family have such an pure, loving connection. They were just themselves and it shows. This is one of my favorite family sessions to date. Looking at these pictures, you can just feel the love they have for each other radiating in ever frame.
