I met Megan through an inquiry about family sessions. Megan and Matt were new to the Springfield, Illinois area and hadn’t had family photographs captured in awhile. Away from their roots, they wanted to capture photographs of the little ones at this age to share with loved ones. A consult concluded the Historic New Salem in Petersburg, Illinois a perfect place for the session with it’s rustic buildings and lush greenery. Being deserted in the evenings after 5PM, it provided the perfect park-like atmosphere for the little ones to run and explore away from any worry of traffic or distractions. Having moved around a lot for work, it also seemed the perfect fit and “welcome to the area” vibe the Midwest would extent with historic building and beautiful wild prairie flowers. Creating a shoot list and mentally preparing myself for the shoot, a Google search turned up an adorable Etsy Shop with very fun science t-shirts. Artsy science people? Oh please, I was excited. After a light sprinkle, the session proceeded wonderfully. We relaxed in the grass, fed the horse we determined was probably named Darth Vader, and their adorable son told me all about Storm Troopers. All good things smile-worthy. Thank you so much for letting me capture these moments for your beautiful family. I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
