Sycamore, IL Family Photographer | The D Family

Sycamore, IL Family Photographer

It was downpouring while I was driving to my extended family photoshoot with this fam, but part of the group was visiting from Colorado and leaving the following day, so I kept driving with the prayer that the rain would stop so we wouldn’t have to cancel. And guess what! As I pulled into the parking lot at Sycamore Park, IT STOPPED! And not only did the rain stop, but the sun came out and dried the park within minutes! I think that my have been a first for me in my 9 years as a photographer!

It was such a joy to photograph this bunch! I love extended photo shoots for all the history and legacy they capture, and this shoot was no exception! Here are some of my favorites from my time with the D family!

Sheboygan, WI Family Photographer | The H Family

Sheboygan, WI Family Photographer

A long time ago in a town not that far away, Kate and Pete were married and had their Two Brother’s Roundhouse reception crashed by a bunch of Stormtroopers. During their marriage, they had a baby named Clara who has managed to steal the hearts of everyone she meets. Pursued by the rigors of work and life, they all went on vacation in June with their whole family up on Lake Michigan in Wisconsin to save their sanity and restore relaxation to their family….

I had such a great time reconnecting with Kate, Pete, & Kate’s family last month!! I can’t believe it’s been almost FOUR years since Kate & Pete were married!! Every year Kate’s family takes a vacation up to the Sheboygan area in WI, and since they were all together in one place they took advantage of the opportunity for some family photos! The weather wasn’t exactly cooperative…we were all expecting a nice warm, summer beach shoot, but June had other plans this year so we spent about 10 minutes on the chilly windy beach grabbing a few images before heading into the trees to warm up. I can’t say I was too mad about it though, because we still got some great images, and I’m kind of a sucker for a good forest. ;) The location of their rental was the best of both worlds; nestled away in the woods without any internet service, yet just a few steps away from the beach on Lake Michigan. It’s definitely high on my list for the next time I’m looking for a secluded off-the-grid getaway! I felt refreshed just from my short time spent there photographing this bunch! Although, that may have had something to do with the company as well. This tight-knit fam is so kind and welcoming!

Here are some of my faves from my time with them!
