Sweet red-headed baby girl {Crystal Lake Newborn Photographer}

I seem to have had a lot of red heads in the studio lately but this was the first time these Irish red heads were actually from Ireland!  I could have listened to Mom talk all day.

This is why I don’t trust forecasts {Crystal Lake Family Photographer}

So all day we were back and forth about this session.   It was really windy and raining on and off.  I wasn’t holding out too much hope that the session was going to workout.  Thank goodness this family was very flexible and we were able to make the call last minute.  The skies just kept getting better!!!!

So glad it worked out!

I love watching these families grow!

Mom and her two sweet babes {Crystal Lake Family Photographer}

This was such a sweet family to photograph.  They made it so easy.  Snuggles, hugs and kisses came so easily.  We may have been eaten alive but it was such a gorgeous night!  These kids were full of giggles and fun.

5 girls plus 1 brave dad {Crystal Lake Family Photographer}

I LOVE this family!!!!  These girls all have 4 VERY different personalities and I love every single one of them.  All amazing, talented and beautiful!

Sometimes during sessions I see orbs.  People may say these are just sun flares but I don’t agree.  Sun flares show a specific way.  I see the orbs sometimes and they appear in places where flares don’t usually appear.  There were WAY more images than what is on this post but this session had the most orbs I have ever seen.  It may have had more than I have ever seen combine.   This family sure has some guardian angels looking over them.

Family session after a day without naps. {Crystal Lake Family Photographer}

This session was originally going to be in a wooden area of the park because we were shooting quite a bit before sunset.  However, we got really luck and had a cloudy day which allowed us to be out among the wild flowers.  My favorite place!  These kiddos got out of the car and Mom tells me that they are running on no naps and we probably don’t have long.  Challenge accepted!

We got through this session with nearly 100 images in under 30 minutes.  The kids were great!!!  Everyone was relaxed and had fun which led to some real smiles.  The kids were playful and liked each other. LOL!

Maybe we need to avoid naps for future sessions?

Beautiful baby girl who loved to curl up {Crystal Lake Newborn Photographer}

Thank goodness Mom and Dad decided to just buy the all.  I was having a hard enough of a time choosing which ones to share.  I can’t imagine picking which ones to keep of this gorgeous girl!  Also glad they decided to join my Baby Club.  I get to watch this beauty grow all year.  Cannot wait!

She sure did love to curl up.  When I wrapped her, I had to keep trying to get her foot away from her face.  And as you can see, there was no bad color on her.  She is perfection!

Beautiful family of three {Crystal Lake Newborn Photographer}

This gorgeous couple added a gorgeous baby to their family.  He was just perfection to work with.

My associate photographer, Anne, was able to jump in at the last minute and shoot their maternity session and she did a fantastic job!  I cannot wait to watch this little man grow this year!
