the red couch {Downers Grove Photography}

A couple of weeks ago my beautiful friend & I did a little swap... I shoot your family if you shoot mine. {ahem, photograph I mean!} So we took my antique red couch out to a beautiful park, got a lot of funny looks by the people walking by, and had a GREAT time photographing each other.

I have officially decided this is the best way to photograph a family. It is natural in the sense that we all snuggle together on the couch and yet, totally unique in that you are out in nature.

Of course, I had to get some bare feet shots in.

And, the craziness begins...

Tip to other photographers: if you cannot get the kids to sit still for a split second, just allow them to fully be monkeys & hang them upside down. In that position they feel stuck and will actually stay put.

How we as parents truly feel...

And, the kids could not WAIT to do bunny ears to their parents. SO funny.

Well, I have some good news!
I am planning a RED COUCH photo session
Saturday, October 15
{hopefully we will still have some green grass}
at Fiftyninth and Main Park in Downers Grove

Sessions will include:
the most fun you've ever had at a photoshoot
minimum of 10 hi res digital images
with full permission to print as many as your heart desires
{5 color images & 5 black & white images}
1 FREE 8x10 print
{a $15 value}
all yours for $75
{just in time for Christmas cards and gifts!
oh, just you wait till you see my Christmas card designs this year!}

These are some images I took at the park today; with the red couch in place and you & your family smiling away, depending on the light, we will either get some color from the trees changing leaves or the glowy harvest color of the prairie grass to compliment the green grass & red couch.

Contact me if you are interested! Space is very limited. Pray for good weather, as I do not know when I can fit in a make up date!

Yippeee! I am so excited to be offering this.

Grace & Peace,
