Fall 2017 | Ashley & Cory

“Choose to smile. Choose to love. Choose to be happy.”

One thing I love about Illinois is the changing of the seasons! After a few months of summer heat, I’m ready for the crisp, cool air of fall. Not to mention, the changing colors of the landscape make for beautiful views each day.

Fall is also a busy time for photo sessions. Many families and couples like the colors and cooler air that fall has to offer. It’s the perfect time to prepare for Christmas cards… and not freeze. 🙂

I met up with Ashley and Cory in Kankakee on a Sunday morning after an intense rainfall. Somehow, even though my yard at home had lots of standing water, we didn’t run into any issues with water and mud during our session!

The kids jumped out ready to pose. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, those kids are so well behaved. Each one of them cooperated and was easy-going. It didn’t even seem to bother them that it was a little chilly out. This was one of the first days where it truly felt like fall. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.
