From Cabo to Chicago! Lisa + Patrick’s Family Portraits!

From Cabo to Chicago!

I met Patrick and his sons in Cabo, Mexico while photographing Brittany & Vaido’s gorgeous destination wedding! The two sons, W + T were so well behaved and did a great job walking down the aisle as ring bearers! Lisa was at home with their third child…and couldn’t make it to the wedding…fast forward 20 months, and I just photographed their family at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL!

Morton Arboretum Family Portraits!

We headed out to the Morton Arboretum for their family portraits! Here’s one of the first shots we took of the day!

These two brothers are quite a photogenic set!

The youngest one was having a great time running around! I love that this photo captures the energy and movement he brings!

A beautiful family portrait!

The Morton Arboretum has so many great trees, (hence the word “arboretum”) – and we found a tree to climb for a quick siblings photo!

I loved the light hitting this tree- so T + W were good about posing in the right spot for this portrait

Mom did a great job behind me making the kids laugh – I love their smiles! =)

A family portrait- such a good looking family- could be right out of Vanity Fair!

A little creative with their family picture – using the white pillars at the Morton Arboretum as a backdrop-

Before we ended, I wanted to have some fun with the boys…so they just played while I snapped some photos- I love the motion and sense of ‘freedom’ and ‘fun’ I feel when I look at their photos!

Thanks Lisa & Patrick for a great shoot! You guys were so great to work with! So many fun photos and I hope this session helped ‘seize the day’ for family as they are growing up so quickly!
