Kirkland, IL Family Photography | Mike, Dana, & Owen

I love me a good family session, and this one with fellow photographer Dana Chaplin and her family did not disappoint!! We had a blast exploring MacQueen Forest Preserve in Kirkland, and Owen and I were best buds by the time we were done!kirkland_IL_family_photographer_001.jpg
I mean, how cute is this??kirkland_IL_family_photographer_003.jpg
And right there you can see a little hint of Dana’s baby bump. Don’t worry, there’s more! Just keep scrolling!kirkland_IL_family_photographer_007.jpg
My favorite!!kirkland_IL_family_photographer_009.jpg
In my house, we call dandelions “wishes.” Owen loved the wishes. 😀kirkland_IL_family_photographer_010.jpg
Ahhhh, so beautiful, Dana!!kirkland_IL_family_photographer_013.jpg
Owen and I walked all the way down that path together hand-in-hand after the next two images. We’re BFF’s. ❤kirkland_IL_family_photographer_016.jpg
We headed across the street from the forest preserve because I just can’t resist a field during golden hour. kirkland_IL_family_photographer_020.jpg
