Oh man we've had quite a wet season so far this year! The amount of rain reschedules I've had in the months of September and August is a little crazy! Eeek! Super big shout out to all my awesome clients who are being flexible with their schedules.

Family Minis were the last Saturday in September and it was a gloomy and rainy day!  Quite a few of these sessions were during misting and little rain sprinkles.  So thanks so much to all these awesome families who still came out even though the sun was hiding and things were a little wet!  I had planned for a cool vintage couch to be delivered for these sessions but due to the bad weather the couch couldn't be delivered.  Stinky.

This family always reminds me why I have the best job, they were one of my first families the first year I was Yellow Coat Photography.  I've watched them go from a family of 4 to a family of 5 and seen them once a year since.  I'm so grateful for this profession and the joy and memories it brings.

I had a vision of beach minis for the past two Summers but just couldn't find a location to make it work.  Finally found the perfect spot and I'm so grateful for all the super adorable families that came out for these beach minis.

Not only was this family so super duper fun during their session but I was in LOVE with the reds, greens and blues in their outfits!!!  They just popped so fantastically off the scene.

I'm almost afraid to speak it out loud but this was a perfect Summer night and the bugs were NOT bad!!!  I always get excited to see this cute family because the boys are so fun and spunky and full of laughter and joy. They think all my crazy Miss Kristen jokes are funny and I love it! lol  Another perfect family on a perfect summer night in the books!  

Also side note big thank you to this super cute family for understanding the crazy weather can be unlucky.

Gah! I was so in love with these coral and orange combos that I had to share!!  How perfect are these colors popping out of the Summer green grasses?!  Just love them!!  Beautiful night, beautiful light, beautiful family and beautiful colors.  A perk if you love your family and act silly during a session, makes my time so super duper fun! ;) Life is good.

Last weekend I had the chance to meet up with some fellow photographers to take some pictures, network and chat about all things photography.

Stinky weather can't hold us down!! We've had so much rain in the last month its making life a little tough these days.

Get geared up friends something new and fun for this year will be children and/or family ICE CREAM minis!!!! Doing the test shots for these fun minis was beyond fun! I had the best time and can't wait for all the delicious mess to come with you too!!  Ice cream minis will take place at the beautiful Lake Julian Trout Farm in Cary, IL.

Summer Minis will be opening soon!! Eeek I cannot wait!!!  This year I'll be hosting something new, Family Beach Minis!!!!!
