Hawthorne // Altamont, IL Family Pictures

It’s always a huge honor to be trusted with any type of photography, because whatever it is, wedding, family, senior, corporate, it’s so important for so many reasons, but the main one being that it captures a particular stage of life forever. It’s even a bigger honor and so warming when we have wedding clients come back to us for their family pictures. We photographed the Hawthorne’s over four years ago. Since then, the family has grown by two, and it was so exciting having the opportunity to photograph the six of them! What a fun session with such a great family! We did the pictures out at Ballard Nature Center in Altamont, where the fall colors were still very vibrant and looking very fall. Having a family with four kids is pretty awesome because each kid has their own personality, and that’s one thing I really love about family pictures, is being able to capture the personality of each family member, but also creating images of the entire family unit. We had such a fun time working with them and the pictures turned out so fun.
