The Biskup’s family session last fall was one of my favorites of all time. Several things about this session made it so special. What’s ironic is that certain things you would think would make it a terrible session happened, but it was so so good. This sweet family had gotten a horrible stomach flu a few days before their original session date and so we pushed the session back a week so they had time to recover. The weather was already starting to be typical Illinois fall hit-or-miss so when the we saw the weather for the rescheduled date was going to be sunny and not freezing, we didn’t want to change the date a second time. But the virus the family had was a rough one and their poor little guy still wasn’t feeling well a week later. He had fallen asleep in the car on the way to the session and was so exhausted and icky feeling all he wanted to do was snuggle his mama. Mom’s zipper on the side of her skirt also busted wide open toward the end of the session, go figure! So of course Mom was a little stressed (because all of us moms want everything to go well), however, I reassured her we would go with the flow and still get some great shots. We were even able to improvise with her skirt and she was able to hide the wide open zipper. Let me tell you, despite what went wrong, the circumstances of the session made it such an authentic one. It was full of family snuggles, giggles, exploring, and just being together (with me following them around sneaking photos). The sunset was absolutely gorgeous through the clouds, and Mom styled the family so beautifully. Check out this gorgeous family!
