Crystal Lake Fall Photoshoot

fall family photos at park

Nicole and Wade joined me with their two kids, Audrey and Nolan, for a beautiful color-filled fall photoshoot at Veteran Acres Park in Crystal Lake. The trees were at peak color, giving us a show and making their photos absolutely pop! Nicole’s family coordinated with green and earthy toned outfits that suited the fall backdrop perfectly—even their son’s jacket matched their outfits! They did a wonderful job of pairing simple patterns, colors, and textures to look coordinated but not too matchy matchy.

Although the trees and outfits were perfect, the temperature was a little chilly, so we made sure to play some Simons Says and incorporate a little twirling and running to stay warm. Audrey was so good at all the games and gave me so many great smiles to work with!

When it was time for a warm-up and snack break for the kids, we incorporated a few sweet moments for Nicole and Wade. I love to play the color game during a couples pose and throw in a few other fun little prompts to get some smiles and let clients create genuine moments for themselves!

At the end of the shoot, we made a brief stop for the kids to play on the park playground and bring out some of their natural smiles and personality. Nolan’s smile really lit up for this part of the photoshoot and we got some great peek-a-boo moments under the slide. We even managed to sneak in a smiling photo with his sister!

Nicole and Wade, thank you for joining me for a fall photoshoot at Veteran Acres Park. It was so much fun to get to know you and your kids, and they were such great troopers!
