On my most recent trip to Illinois College in November, I photographed a project for the college in the morning and later that afternoon I was honored to photograph the Chipman family!

Stephanie and Tim are new parents to sweet Ruth. And when I say sweet, I wholeheartedly mean it! She is six months old and full of personality, smiles, and giggles. Her bold blue eyes and dimples will melt your heart! And laughter is contagious to her, so if someone else laughs, she laughs. Goodness, Ruthie is adorable!

We started the session with photos of baby girl, and then moved into family photos. Ruth wasn’t sure about the leaves on the ground while laying on the blanket, but this girl absolutely loved being in her mom and dad’s arms. I loved how Ruth’s longing to be in her parents’ arms allowed me to take a relaxed, lifestyle approach to the session focusing on interaction and their genuine love. How sweet!

The colors on this mid-November day were gorgeous and complimented this family’s outfits perfectly. I’ve always loved Stephanie’s impeccable style since first meeting her as a first-year student at Illinois College. Her wardrobe is amazing, so I knew her outfit choices for the session would be perfect. She did not disappoint and planned them so fittingly!

The Chipman Family – Thank you for allowing me to photograph your sweet family of 3! I loved meeting your baby girl, Ruth, and it’s always a joy to see you all!
