Family Photos in the Park {Northbrook Family Photography}


When I was first contacted by this mom, I could tell right away that we would be a great match for one another. Not only did it turn out that she was referred my way by several past clients who I absolutely adore, but in talking with and meeting mom and dad, they are just the warmest and sweetest couple and such excellent parents. It doesn't hurt that their girls might be the cutest, right?! We met at the Allison Woods Picnic Grove in Northbrook, the perfect halfway point between Wilmette and Buffalo Grove, which also happens to be a gorgeous setting for photos. From the beautiful stream to the gorgeous open field, even without leaves on the trees, this spot was perfect. And when you bring together all these elements, the result is just pure magic.

As a firm believer in capturing family photos, it goes without saying that I believe in the importance of documenting your children and your family at every age and stage, but in this family’s case, I was even more glad to have caught them in this moment. Less than six months after our session, their younger daughter was diagnosed with cancer. Thank goodness after a long and grueling battle, she is now cancer-free, but these images were a lifeline to the life they could return to when she was once again healthy.
