Life is amazing, a little personal – Itasca IL family photographer

Last time at this year I dragged my little family out to a beautiful field for some photographs. I didn't get to book a photographer early enough and therefore I took these myself with the use of a tripod and self timer. Would absolutely not reccomend it's so tedious. Oh did I mention coyotes came [...]

I can remember my mom describing my wild antics but only wished there was a photograph to see them, because I know I was wild. I just don't have the proof of how much :P. I cannot stress enough how important it is to document your kids as they are.  The way their silly girn was full of tiny teeth or the untamed baby hair or in our case the gallos, a Mexican word for hairs that stand straight up and cannot tame no matter what you try. Below you can see all of that in my kids.  Also my daughter in the way she removed her shirt to match her brothers.
