Check out how much it snowed during these sessions!! Family Photographer | Minooka, IL

I was very nervous that it was going to be raining on this day but the morning forecast showed 100% chance of snow and man were they right!  Seriously ... I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Thank you Amy and Ross for letting me use your gorgeous backyard for these sessions!! And thank you once again to my husband for helping set it all up (even my kids helped with this one)!  On to the sessions ... 

Jack was so photogenic this time!  Look how handsome he is here!!

I'm such a sucker for sibling kisses ... especially when they are on the nose!!
 Abby and Anna snuggling up and looking absolutely precious!

First time meeting these three and fell in love!  What a great family! Ashley, Braden and Vanessa were great sports and tried their best not to look cold :)

Evan was so stinking cute with his mom ... he just wanted to hold her hand!  Cherish these moments because one day he won't ... sniff sniff

McKenna looking absolutely adorable as always!!!
 Ha!!!  LOVE a good pouty face!!!  Maddie has it down too!

Love this one of Reese ... and look at that snow on her eyelash!  It was coming down in huge flakes!!

These four grew up so much on me!  One thing hasn't changed though - they still take care of their baby sister Brooklyn!  

Graham did so great during his session and I took this at the end because his big blue eyes popped so much in the snowy background!

How cute are these three?!  Next time we have to get Dad in there!!

 Ella was cold but this was the first time in snow and she did great!

Thank you to all of the families who came out once again!  I'm so blessed to have such great clients!!!  I'm also so lucky to have Mallory to help!  You rock!  Happy Holidays!!

The kids had so much fun with Santa! Family Photographer | Minooka, IL

This was the third (and final) session with Santa for 2016 and the kids did great once again!  2016 was an absolutely awesome year and Santa's magic list proved that everyone was on the NICE list!

Miss Charlotte didn't like Santa but man oh man did she love playing peek-a-boo!!!  Love this little munchkin!

Jax was so excited to tell Santa what was on his list!!

 Just a regular old day ... Madi having cookies and milk with Santa!

I seriously can't handle the cuteness in this image of Olivia and Charlotte!  I have absolutely loved watching these gorgeous grow!

Cuteness overload!  The "R" kiddos giving Santa a great big hug!!

 Love how Lexi is looking on Santa's magic scroll for her name!

All of the "K" kiddos did great with Santa - including Mr. Bradley!

Cooper and Peyton did it!!!  They went by Santa and found out that it wasn't all that bad after all!!  This was such a big year for these two! LOVE!

QUICK - grab our gifts and RUN!  Hee hee ... Delaney, Riley and Haley enjoyed this a lot :)

Aubrie has never been afraid of Santa but Miss Gabby is a different story!  She was good as long as big sister was in between ... which was absolutely fine because look how gorgeous these girls are!

 Landon and Hayden didn't take Santa pictures but they used the same set up so I had to include them in here.  I just LOVE this image!!  They drank that milk up so fast!!

Nick was such a great sport and let me and his mama talk him into doing this ... I just love his baby blue eyes and dark hair!!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my family, friends and clients who helped make these sessions so perfect! And thank you to Mallory and Santa for an awesome season!

And thanks to my neighbor Janet, my hubby and Mallory for helping decorate this gorgeous set!

These boys enjoyed some marshmallows ... er, I mean hot cocoa with Santa! How cute are they?!!!
Where did my little girl go?!  Kyra looks so grown up to me here!

Lilly had the best expression when she opened up her present from Santa!  She must have been a super good girl!

CHEERS to another great year!

Which is your favorite?! These were the most fun Santa sessions to date! Family Photographer | Minooka, IL

I absolutely love the fact that I have been able to put all my time into my photography business!  I have always wanted to do a "Polar Express" type theme with Santa and I'm super excited to share those images with you!  Thank you to Mallory, Santa, my little sister and my hubby for making this vision come true!  You guys are the best!

Sam and Sadie kept warm by snuggling up in a blanket and drinking hot cocoa with Santa :)

These three were told that their elf left them presents in their car!  Just love the look on Madelyn's face while talking with the big guy!

 OMG!  I absolutely love this of Delaney and Parker talking with Santa!!!!!  Everything about this image is magical!

Mallory and I couldn't handle how adorable Caden looked in his Yeti outfit!!  Look at those slippers!  So adorable!

Collin was knocking on the back of the caboose and Santa came to help.  The look these kids give Santa literally makes my heart so happy!!!!  

Luke and Zach are on their way to the North Pole!

Mia thought it was hilarious that her little sister didn't like Santa!  He was trying to be sneaky and get in the picture but Nora caught him!  Too cute!

Little Emmett did not like Santa!  One day he'll love him!

Quinn and Easton are excited to go to the North Pole!!

Quick - jump on the train! Dominic and Joey thought that was silly!

Love that mom monogramed their pjs!  Jacob, Josh and Jackson loved Santa reading them the story about the Polar Express!

How many kids can say that got a ride on their sleigh by Santa?!  

 I can't handle the cuteness of this image!
 Mallory and I had the BEST time during these sessions!  Having a sunny 60+ degree day in November definitely helped but these kiddos really made our day!  Thank you so much to all of my clients who put their trust in me to provide them with these magical memories!

These sessions really pulled at my heart strings! Family Photographer | Minooka, IL

My second set of fall minis was supposed to take place Saturday late afternoon but unfortunately, Mother Nature didn't agree.  We rescheduled for the following morning and somehow all 8 families were able to make it!  Woo hoo!!  And on to the beautiful images I was able to capture ...

We started off with the "F" family and their three gorgeous boys!  I was in love with the colors that Mom chose for her family!  The love these brothers have for each other is unreal!
Next up was the "R" family and their sweet little ones!  Colton was so sweet to give his big sister Ava some flowers!  Just look at the curls on both of these beautiful children!!!!  LOVE!
Next was Daddy and his baby girl!  This session literally melted my heart!  Madi is definitely a Daddy's girl! I love the fact that this was a gift from Daddy's best friend's family!  There is love all around these two!
Next up was the "S" family.  I had to post this picture of Lilly and her mama because when I asked Lilly if she was the most beautiful girl in the world - her response was, "No, my mom is."  She was so matter of fact that my heart was so full!!  Precious!
Up next was the "B" family. Love how sweet this image is of this absolutely gorgeous family! Everyone tickle Daddy!!!
Now we are on to this absolutely adorable "M" family!  Little Miss Aubrey was such a ham with mom and dad!!  One ... two ... three ... SWING!

The "G" family never disappoints but this image of the three middle children is seriously sooooo stinking cute that I had to post as sneak peek!
I can't handle the cuteness of the "B" family and their newest addition, Ash!  Daddy was holding her and the entire family went running and had to join in ... love!!

Thank you again for such a great day!!  Mallory and I had such a heart warming day!
