Craig & Liz | Sugar Grove, IL Couple Photography

The thing I hear most frequently from people before their session is that they aren’t good at acting natural in front of the camera, or that they aren’t photogenic. Honestly (and no offense meant), most people aren’t!! Having your picture taken by a professional is weird! I’ve been photographed a couple of times, and I can also attest to those feelings of nervousness and terror that come along with preparing for a session. It’s rare that someone actually enjoys having their picture taken. And those people usually make a profession out of it. For the rest of us, we need help. My goal during a session is to make the process as easy as possible on ya’ll. I try to make it fun, mostly at the expense of myself, but, hey, if people are laughing, who cares if it’s because it’s at me and not with me, right? I embarrassed myself a few times with Liz and Craig, but it’s all good. They are smiling naturally and look relaxed, so I call it a win!

Anyways, on to the pictures! Liz is my younger sister! Check out how cute her and her boyfriend Craig are!! sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_01 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_02 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_04 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_05 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_06 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_07 sugar_grove_IL_engagement_photography_08

See?!?! They think I’m hilarious!

Happy Wednesday!!!
