Naperville Photographer, Wheaton Photographer | Family Portraits

I love when I get to see returning families.  I get to witness kids growing up – though if they are young, they most likely don’t remember me from last time. 😉  Last time, I photographed this family in a woodsy setting.  This year, we had a gorgeous, sunny day at a more formal setting.  I always like this place because of the variety available in one place.  Even if there are lots of other photographers there, it is big enough for everyone.  When I am there on weekends, I usually run into several weddings.  On this weekend session, not only were brides and grooms getting wedding pictures done there, but we witnessed an actual wedding…literally about 15 feet from where I was shooting. LOL  We were separated with some trees when we heard Cannon in D playing.  I hushed the kids and told them we needed to be really quiet since a wedding was going on.  The boys were so intrigued, all they wanted to do was watch it.  I wonder if that will be what they remember most from our session.

This session was a couple of weeks ago before the leaves had really started changing colors.

These boys…such characters.

I love this one. I didn’t pose the boys at all.

And here, again, I didn’t pose the boys.  They made my job so easy.

By the end, the little guy was getting tired and ready to be done.  Nothing mom couldn’t handle

If you don’t have a great family picture hanging big on a wall in your home – why the heck not??  And if your kids don’t look the same anymore – then update them!  Don’t just get pictures of your children on your walls.  It doesn’t matter that you’ve gotten some wrinkles, gained some pounds, or lost some hair, be part of your family.  Be part of your own history.

    Bill and I are the parents of Tracey Gorrell, Grandparents to Evan and Carter. We wanted to let you know we LOVE the photos you’ve taken of the Gorrell Family!! We look forward to receiving these shots each Christmas. As you’ve noted, it’s wonderful to see the kids grow and mature.

    Thank you so much for capturing this very special family.

    All the best,
