Grandkids Secret Gift

This week I got the opportunity to secretly photograph 5 cousins for a special Christmas gift for their grand parents. After lots of fun playtime and wrangling indoors and outside, we captured some awesome portraits of each of the kids. The final image was turned into a long canvas-wrapped frame featuring side-by-side portraits of all the grandkids presented to their Nana and Papa at Christmas.

Here are a few outtakes from the session:

Below is the final image that was turned into a stunning 5 foot long canvas of all the grandkids:

Geoff + Cyd + Soren + Tennyson – Long Grove Photography

Soren and Tennyson were so much fun to photograph at their Long Grove home. We got to swing on a rope swing, climb trees and play in the wheat field behind their house. After getting ready for bed, they showed me what a typical wrestle session looks like with Dad and they were literally jumping over the furniture. Such a fun and active household, this is a family that really loves spending time together. Check out the shot of Tennyson leaping over the sofa; pure joy!

Thanks for letting me play with you guys!

Dave + Rae Ann + Max – Arlington Heights Photography Session

Max lives right down the street from a big park and loves spending time at the playground. After showing me his pumpkin and his bug collection, Max took me and his parents to the park to grab some fun family photos. Is this a happy kid, or what? You should see this big guy on the monkey bars.

Owen’s Sneak Peek – Palatine Children’s Photography

Owen just became a big brother, and what a fun big brother he will be. Here’s a sneak peek at some images we made today. He’s a fun kid, don’t you agree? You’ll see more from this session with Owen and his new little brother in the coming week.
