Jackie + Michael // Ballard Nature Center Altamont, IL Engagement Session

This was session number two for Jackie and Michael. Well, sort of. Last winter, we did pictures for their save the dates, so we were at least familiar with working with each other. Of course, now, it’s a little warmer out, and it’s feeling a lot better than it did last winter! Their engagement session took place after a couple of days of nothing but rain, this brought with it some good fun Illinois humidity and mosquitos. The mosquitos were ruthless too! However, this didn’t stop us from having a great session. These two were so much fun to photograph, both have great personalities that work well for pictures (and of course each other). We did the session at Ballard Nature Center in Altamont, and we explored quite a bit that was available to us. While we had humidity and mosquitos, we also had available to us more water in the creek, this made for some pretty incredible pictures, definitely ones worth a few mosquito bites.
