Baby Owen | Newborn Photography | Jenni Kenney Photography, LLC | Minooka, IL

This blog post is way overdue but better late than never, right?!  I was absolutely thrilled when Lindsay told me she was having baby #3!  When she sent me a picture from their gender reveal party - I cried happy tears ... Mia and Nora were getting a brother!!  For my sake, I hope there are more to come ;)  HA!!  Love you, Lindsay and Adam and can't wait to see you every three months again!

When asked ... What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? Lindsay said, "Yes, they were right, its a boy!"  Too stinking cute!!

I definitely think Owen will be loved by his big sisters!!! Mom said she looked over 1 day when he was just a couple weeks old and the girls were already trying to dress him up with Elmo's crown. He has no idea what's in store for him! Hee hee!!!!
 I just want to eat him up! Favorite part of the session was ... "seeing how peaceful Owen was and how great Jenni was."  Awe!!
 Love these ... especially the one where he is smiling with Dad!!
 And one more of mom ... because she's so gorgeous!
 Let him sleep ... for one day he will move mountains!
 Snuggled up in my vintage Radio Flyer wagon!

What some advice from Lindsay on your newborn session with JKP??  "Don't be nervous or feel overwhelmed, even if your baby is being fussy or "not cooperating" Jenni gets great pictures and is so patient." There you have it!  Contact me today to set up your newborn session!  info@jennikenney.com

Family photographer | Jenni Kenney Photography, LLC | Minooka, IL

I recently had a fantastic session with the “G” family (John, Rachael, Jack and Anna). This family has a very special place in my heart! Jack and Anna have both been a part of my Watch Me Grow package and have been coming to every duckling and Santa session for 4 years!

We met at 4 Rivers Environmental Center. I love photographing families here because of the gorgeous fields, trees and the river.  

 For our shoot, Rachael said she was looking for a light, bright summery look.  She found her son's shorts with the blue plaid and a touch of red at Walmart first and went around that.  Next was Mom's red dress from Carson's.  And her daughter's adorable Osh Kosh white dress had blue and red flowers which coordinated perfectly.  Daddy has a slew of shirts in his closet so she just shopped in his closet for his outfit. I think this look really made for some amazing photos!  Great job, Mama!

It truly was an amazing photo shoot. And if any of you are considering a family session or are prepping for an upcoming session, heed the words of Rachael: 

“Just have fun!  No matter what you wear or how much time you spend getting ready, just be yourself.  Your pictures will turn out beautiful if you are just relaxed and being the family that you are in front of the camera!,” she says. Solid advice!

Okay, on to pictures of this gorgeous family!

Mom was asked to describe her family and she said ... John: fun daddy, Rachael: loving mommy, Jack: sweet, fun loving 4 year old, Anna: adorable, sassy 2 year old.  I think everyone's personalities were captured, don't you?!

Nothing's better than a big ol' lollipop! Both kids were super sweet and let the other try theirs!
I love how Anna decided to lick the dandelion first!!  Too cute!!
"We ALWAYS love our aessions with Jenni.  She has a way of bringing out my kids natural personalities and we love our family sessions with her."

"S" Sisters | Child Photographer | Jenni Kenney Photography | Minooka, IL

The topic of discussion for today is none other than the "S" girls, ... three gorgeous sisters from Chicago. If the names or faces look familiar to you, it's because I've photographed the two older girls before (look how much they've grown in 2 years!!). 

I was super excited when I got an email from Janessa saying she wanted to book another session with their 3 children. I was happy to know that they enjoyed me as much as I enjoyed them! 

When asked 'why did you decide to do another session' - Janessa said, "Because you're fantastic :)!"  That made me smile so big!!!

Since my last session with Sophia and Bailey went so well, I knew it wouldn't be any different this time around. And I was right! Check it out for yourself:

From oldest to youngest, we have Sophia 10, Bailey 5, and Shae 1. 

Where's Shae?!  THERE SHE IS!

Love this image!!!

Loved that the girls brought bubbles!  I also love how Sophia is the little mother hen!

Here are some stunning images of all three of the girls together. Nothing beats having a sister!!

Make a wish!

Lollipop time!

Sisters make the best friends

Thank you for such a fun session, Janessa and Rory!  Can't wait for the FAMILY pictures next year :)
