80th birthday Party!!

Published by Jan under family

I was honored to be the photographer at a very special 80th birthday bash!!!  The party was held at Pineview Nursing Home in St. Charles.  The grounds were gorgeous and it was a wonderfully cool day (as a lot of days have been this summer).  It was a large family of 5 siblings and their families as well as the birthday girl and her brother.  Happy 80th Birthday!!!

Ahhhh…newborn sweetness! I don’t get a chance to shoot newborns a lot so when the chance comes up, I am so excited! And Evan is an adorable little sweetie! He is a voracious eater but was verrry content with a full tummy! He has gorgeous coloring to his skin and his chubby little cheeks and plump lips are perfection!

And one with Alexa – the big sister

And then I got to play with Alexa alone – don’t want anyone to feel left out (this big sister stuff is hard work!!!)

Congratulations Jill & Jeremy! You have a beautiful family and I was blessed to be able to photography them!

Melissa’s session was at John Duerr Forest Preserve where she has been going to camp for the last 13 YEARS – first as a camper then as a counselor for girl scouts! Needless to say she knew all the ins and outs of the place and all the cool locations for pictures! It was one of the hottest days of the summer. We started early in the morning but by the time the session was over she was wiped! But she was a trooper and her pictures are gorgeous!

And against my better judgement (I’m a Cubs fan!!!) we took pictures of her dog Lilly and her Sox jersey and championship blanket for her dad. Don’t they look cute???
