This morning the Rosales family brought in their brand new baby girl Peyton and her big sister Makiah. Peyton was 13 days old today, and although she was actually awake for most of the session – she hardly made a peep. Finally – right at the end of the session she relaxed off to dreamland and allowed us to get a few more cute sleeping shots. Her 3 year old sister Makiah was just as mellow – she played so nice and was so patient waiting for us to get done with photos!

Eyes wide open for most of the session!
A million expressions from Ms. Kenleigh!
This session was the first time I had a chance to meet Kenleigh… but, I’ve photographed Rhegan, Jennifer, Tony and their family many times over the past 5+years. I always find it so nice to see kids and families grow!
We had rescheduled our session due to rain a week earlier, but so happy to have a nice evening for their session and the clouds broke way for a very yellow setting sun. We hung out by the local pond until the light was just right and got a few images with the little ladies (and a few family photos too).

One last shot before the sun was gone.
Crazy in love with this couple – starting back when we had an amazing engagement session. I couldn’t help but look forward to their amazing wedding day. I started out at The Parlour salon with the girls before the wedding to get some of the last hair & make up details and have some fun toasts.
Then off to the beautiful Stonebrook Manor for the wedding outside on the west lawn, and reception in the west ballroom. Everyone was rushing around to make sure that every detail was in place, and it all came together for a beautiful ceremony. Unlike the rain the previous evening…. the sun came out for the ceremony and temperatures were warm but comfortable.
The boys were more than ready for some fun photos with Tara too! Another perfect 2010 wedding – and wishing the best to the newlyweds in their new home in Chicago!
