Haslett // Effingham, IL Family Photography

I love it when a small crew arrives for family pictures. With the Haslett’s there were 5 of them and they were such a great family to photograph. We did pictures out at Lake Sara in Effingham, IL with them, and upon arrival I had full intentions of shooting at a particular location, but as we were sitting in the parking lot, I noticed the small area in front of us looked amazing with the way the light was, and made a last second change, and moved our location to the spot right in front of us. I’m thrilled we did because the pictures turned out great. We had just the right amount of sunlight peaking through and just the right amount of trees to provide shade and not be overwhelming in the background. We even had a number of split trees that provided great natural frames for the images. When nature provides you with a frame, you have to take it.
