Effingham, IL Family Pictures // Allred

Baby sessions continue to surprise me with how quickly time goes by. Has it really been three months since we last did Sidney’s pictures? I can’t believe it! It also amazes me how much of a difference three months can make in a baby’s personality. We, of course, see changes like this with our son, but because we are with him every day, those changes don’t seem quite as obvious compared to when you see a baby one month and not again for three months. Sidney was so full of smiles during the session. She has such a fun personality and was just too much fun to photograph. This location was so perfect for pictures. Out by Lake Sara in Effingham, the water provided this nature reflector of light and almost made the pictures look fake. The lighting was too good and with Sidney, as well as Amy and Jaron’s fun personalities, we had a perfect combination for some pretty amazing pictures. This also marks the fourth session with this family since they announced their pregnancy (maternity, newborn, 3-month, and now 6-month). I feel so honored that they would allow me to continue to work with them and have loved watching their little family grow.
