fall family photos | wheaton, il.

I  briefly met Steve at an Engagement Reception that I photographed back in October of 2010. About a year ago, we tried to schedule a photo shoot, but with our hectic schedules it didn’t work. Then this year when Steve saw the BMW Shoot I did, we threw around the idea of doing a shoot with his vintage BMW. Again, because of hectic schedules it didn’t work. And when we were finally able to schedule a shoot this year, we had to reschedule because his wife’s work schedule changed. So when we finally met at Adam’s Park in downtown Wheaton, I couldn’t have been more excited to finally shoot with Steve, his wife Pauline, and their two ADORABLE kids Emmy and Shaun.

As always, the kids were a little shy to start, but definitely opened up once we started playing in the leaves and running around the park. And it was so helpful that they brought along their sister, Patricia, to be my assistant and help with the kids. It really is the biggest help for me when clients are amazing enough to do that!! Thanks, Patricia – especially for doing the jumping jacks 😉

Steve and Pauline, thank you guys for being so amazing yesterday. You have a gorgeous family and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to photograph you all together. The leaves, the flowers, your beautiful children (who by the way, are a perfect mix of you both!) – I love how it all came together on a perfect fall day.
