Family Session | The Jackie McSherry Family

Cave of the Mounds Gardens did not disappoint for our June family session with Jackie and her sweet family! The rock formations and variety of flowers gave us the colors and diffused light we needed for this cloudy day. It’s a great destination for any family formals.

I am so glad that Jackie reached out to me for her family photos! Her three adult children were home with the precious grandchildren. We all know it can be hard to get the kids home at once! It was great getting to know them as hiked along the paths. We especially had fun at the very end of our session naming all the flowers on our walk back to the parking lot with the kids.

Dollinger Christmas Tree Farm Engagement Session | Kiley & Josh

It was the golden hour. Sunlit evergreens covered with patches of snow in the crisp cool air. Deer starting to peer out from the woods. The sound of quiet woods with occasional squirrels chattering and birds chirping. This is my place of peace! The countryside will always have my heart and true home.

I was so glad that Kiley & Josh chose Dollinger Christmas Tree Farm for their engagment session. This beauty is set in the heart of Lake Carroll, IL amidst the forest and hills that Northwest Illinois has to offer. Kiley and Josh brought their sweet girl who I just ADORE! Brown eyes, red hair and such innocence! Kiley and Josh are just as sweet with an exciting wedding day celebration coming this July! Keep scrolling to see one of my favorite sessions from 2018 – the colors are stunning and so is the couple! ❤
