home is where our story begins. | lake county, il family photographer
Trying to find just a few words about how much I adore this family and their entire session is proving to be so hard. Everything from the casual styling, to the gorgeous home, to the family living in it were/are truly a dream session for me. Mom + Dad wanted real life pictures, to capture exactly what their life is like with 4 little ones at home. I'd say we did just that!! From family snuggles to jumping on the bed and lots of quiet moments of just mom + dad. As I edited this session I got emotional, I laughed and I just re-lived that crazy amazing + FUN day! This family who I am lucky enough to call my friends, are moving out of state in just a week, so it was important for me to capture them during this chapter of life and embrace everything that it is. I am so proud of this session, it truly makes my heart happy and I hope I have captured many amazing moments for this wonderful family to look back on for many, many years. And every time they need a little piece of "home" they can look back at these. Schau Family, I love you and wish you all the best on your next Chapter. It's never goodbye love.
