Today, there is an adorable family of four on the blog!
After this session, I am at a loss of words to precisely describe what a joy it was to work with the McCray family. These people are sweet, welcoming souls, and I am honored to have worked with them!
A few months ago, I received an email from Michelle, a fellow photographer, and an amazing one at that! OMG, I was delighted and truly humbled that she wanted me to be her family photographer this year. From the start, she was welcoming, flexible, and truly looking forward to the entire experience. This is what makes my job as a family photographer so much more than a “job”. It’s all about the experience…
I learned about her family – her husband and two sons – and by now I was getting even more excited to meet all of them in Bourbonnais, Illinois for their family session! On the night of their session, the boys greeted me with giggles and eager eyes of curiosity as they were in a fun, new place. There were so many things to see!
The McCrays were simply themselves in front of my camera – thanks to Michelle for making my job easy since she’s a mom + photographer! They were interactive, loving, and living in the moments of snuggling each other despite the mid-September heat and pesky bugs! The boys were full of personality, and I loved seeing their laughter when tickling and talking to one another along with more tender moments loving on their mom and dad. These photos are part of this time marker in the McCray family’s journey, and oh, do they tell the story of the love of this family.
P.S. – I am so thankful Michelle offered one more photo idea at the end of the session… A family silhouette shot. IN LOVE! Enjoy a peek into this family session!
