BOAT DOCKS AT BLACKWELL FOREST PRESERVE | WARRENVILLE, IL


I recently discovered the boat docks at Blackwell Forest Preserve and wow am I glad I did!  It is so serene there and makes the perfect backdrop for sunset sessions!  When my friend Elizabeth asked to book a family session, I suggested the boat docks and she was all for it!  Since this family is good friends of ours, and I know Olivia (she's two) is well behaved, I wasn't worried about having them on the dock and near the water.  We had the most perfect weather after having days and days of rain so I was so excited to see the sun and do a sunset session!  The girls were perfect, even baby Claire was a trooper since it was close to her bedtime!   I just love how peaceful these photos look!  And I love this family too!  Check out some of my favorite photos from this session!

MCKEE MARSH AT BLACKWELL FOREST PRESERVE | WARRENVILLE, IL


I recently had the pleasure of photographing a super fun couple and wow, their photos came out so beautifully!  Brittany and Mac are not only gorgeous people on the outside (they should just sign baby Wyatt up to be a model now, because we know that will be one good looking child!), but they are the nicest, most down to earth people as well!  Due to the awful weather we've been having here, we had to reschedule their session twice, but it was worth the wait!  We finally had the most perfect, beautiful evening for their session and Brittany was super excited because she said it had rained for both their engagement photo session and on their wedding day!  The sunset at McKee Marsh at Blackwell Forest Preserve is so gorgeous and serene and it was the perfect backdrop for this maternity session.  Brittany and Mac are so photogenic and what's even better is they love to have fun!  They made this session so easy and it was so fun capturing them in their natural element (and check out Mac's awesome "signature jump" that he likes to sneak in every photo session ;-) )!  Take a look at these stunning photos from their sunset session!  I cannot wait to meet baby Wyatt in a few weeks!  He's one lucky baby and is so loved already!
