Wilder Park , Elmhurst, IL Family Photographer | Daniel, Erin, & Declan

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost three years since I photographed Daniel & Erin’s wedding! What in the world?!? It was so good to reconnect with them back in June, and to meet their sweet little man, Declan!! If there’s one thing I love more than getting to know a couple through the wedding planning process, it’s getting to photograph them as their families grow. What a privilege to be there from the very beginning of a couple’s family!

For their family photo shoot, we met at Wilder Park in Elmhurst, IL, and it provided such a beautiful backdrop for our time together. We met early in the morning, which made for not only a happy Declan, but also an empty garden and greenhouse for us to roam around in. Declan turned one a couple weeks before our shoot and, like most kids his age, was a little unsure about having a stranger photograph him at first, but I’m happy to report that I won him over quickly and got lots of adorable genuine smiles! He’s such a laid back little guy! Also, he’s a glasses ninja! I can’t tell you how many times during our shoot that he’d quickly swipe Daniel’s glasses off when it didn’t even seem like a possibility! It definitely provided lots of entertainment for me during the course of the morning.

One quick note before we move on to the pictures: I’m already starting to book portrait sessions for September & October with limited weekend availability, so now’s the time to get something on the calendar if you’re thinking about it! Head over HERE to set something up!

And now, it’s picture time baby!
