A backyard fall session for the “S” family!

A backyard fall session for the “S” family!

 

Welcome back, all!

 

You read that right, a backyard fall session! Fall sessions are already great, but at home? Now that’s as awesome as the pictures. Incorporating your own property in some way makes them even more special. I recently had a fantastic session with the “S” family. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception, either. They were adorable and their little ones could not have been more perfect. “D” was full of personality and baby sister was like sleeping beauty for a majority of the session.

We met for a sunrise session. I try to get the rising or setting sun behind my clients as much as possible. Amazingly enough, where their fence ended their neighbors had a nice open yard with some trees and great fall colors. We were able to shoot the session in the clients yard with the beautiful sunrise and neighbor’s trees serving as a perfect fall backdrop. I loved shooting at the “S” residence because with a new baby and an active 2-year-old, it was comfortable and convenient for them. We were expecting rain during the session time so it was also nice to be near their house for that reason. Thankfully the rain held off!

For our shoot, the “S” family wore great fall outfit colors.  I would love to say I sent out a memo with a yearly color theme, but some of my clients must have had a secret meeting without me. Way to stay trendy clan! I was able to work in my props with the outfits they chose, which really made for some amazing photos. The blanket matched perfectly.

“C” family fall session, Wonder Lake, Illinois!

“C” family fall session, Wonder Lake, Illinois!

 

 

Hi again, everyone! Next up on the blog is this amazing fall session with the “C” family in Wonder Lake.

 

Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so amazing to work with. That’s true of my session with the “C” family, too!

 

Casi Ann Photography, Wonder Lake, Illinois, Photographer, Lake County, McHenry County, IL, Child, Familly, Photography

 

I met up with them October 15th in Wonder Lake, Illinois and the weather held out for photo-taking. It’s been a stormy fall and was a pretty overcast day. That’s really a good thing sometimes, not having any harsh sun. While the weather was fine, it was the “C” family that made this shoot such a success. They are always dressed so nicely for their sessions and I swear they have a pre-session family meeting.

The “C” family consists of 3, the mom, “H” and her daughter “L” and son “A”. I’ve known them since I lived in Belvidere and her kids are both about a year younger than my daughter and son. They travel out to see me at least once yearly to update their family pictures. I love catching up and watching them grow.

This family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. We met in a quiet place so they could let loose and be silly together. Oh, the personalities. “L” is growing into a beautiful young lady with just enough spunk. She’s awesome, and I love her curls! Wow! She keeps asking for a snowy winter session in a beautiful gown so I’m praying for a beautiful snow and hunting for a tree farm. Hopefully this is the year “L”. I can’t wait to see how those turn out. “A” is a handsome young man with a great sense of humor. He keeps everyone laughing. When I told him to whisper his favorite vegetable into his mom’s ear he whispered instead, “I don’t like vegetables”. Let’s not forget that style either, he’s definitely a hat guy.

 

Hope you enjoy the rest of highlights from our session!

  • Lucy Shlemon - Casi, you have done it again. You managed to make my heart smile so big looking at these photos. It literally captures each one of them as they are in person… I love each and everyone of these. I am so glad you created this page. You have built up your creative side even more and have such a God given gift for photography. I for one am thankful you became a photographer, then I get two blessings— one watching my friend grow in her business and two seeing my families beautiful photos… Thank you for all you do….ReplyCancel

    • Casi - Thanks Lucy! That’s so sweet. It’s hard to stop doing what you love. I said over a decade ago I would be doing this. It has taken quite a while but I’m happy to say it’s finally getting there. Your support along the way has made it more rewarding.ReplyCancel

Fall or Cool Weather Photography Session, What to Wear

Fall Photography Session, What to Wear !

 

Are you stuck for inspiration for your next session, or maybe just need a little help coordinating your outfits? Have no fear, Pantone has this very helpful guide that I’m happy to share with you all.

Jackets for cool weather!

It is so important to dress for the weather, especially with little ones. If they’re cold and miserable it becomes really difficult to capture genuine happy expressions. How cozy do these look?

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“Colorful boots and warm parkas are both practical and romantic for a rainy day shoot! There are so many beautiful solid-colored rain boots to choose from these days – pick a hue that you love and build the rest of the outfit around it. Snuggly fur linings and knit materials add detail and interest to your images while keeping you warm and dry.”

Leggings!

Who isn’t wearing them these days? There are so many cute patterns and solids to choose from!

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“A knockout colorful texture on any single garment – from leggings to cardigans – makes this outfit combination a smash hit on camera! Lightly accessorize with solids as to prevent the image from getting too busy. Keeping the rest of the outfits simple will make your patterned piece stand out beautifully.”

CORAL

While a whole family in coral wouldn’t be ideal, some touches of it make for a really fun pop of color.

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“An abundance of texture in this rustic chic duo makes for beautiful and interesting photographs amidst a variety of locations, both indoor and out. Tribal cardigans are the signature of the season – and look absolutely fabulous in front of the lens.”

Oh, the sweaters!

Some of those fall days you really can get away with a comfy sweater instead of a jacket and not be too cold.

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“A mid-length mod-inspired dress with leather tall boots is always a fabulous look for ladies in cooler weather. His and Hers knit sweaters will keep you cozy and look great on camera. And by the way – honey hues and navy blues make a perfect pair!”

No boots is okay, too!

I love a nice pair of flats, and not everyone has an amazing pair of boots. Don’t discount the flats.

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“Inspired by the color and simplicity of ballet flats, this look for a couple is classy, understated, and perfect both indoor and outdoor situations. For the ladies; a wool skirt, powdery leggings, and blush pink flats are comfy and flattering. Casual men’s slacks and a wool sweater are elegant and simple to put together. Layering sweaters over plain tees makes the outfits versatile!”

Grays!

Can you think of a color that doesn’t look good with gray? That’s a tough one.

what to wear, cool weather, fashion, style, guide

“Just because the weather’s grey doesn’t mean your outfit has to be! Choosing a single pop color – in this case magenta – and building an outfit of grayscale solids around it make for exciting compositions in photographs. Guys – don’t shy away from color either. Sometimes a surprising hue, such as the mauve pictured here, can be especially flattering and handsome on the gentlemen.”

My Family on the Blog

Making time to capture my family more

I have to share a little of my home life here. In the future there may be a separate place for that, but for now you get to see the faces of my family too. The night before last my husband wasn’t feeling well and went inside when we got home. My son being 1 had some energy to get out. It being cool but nice enough out I let him run around a bit. I don’t like letting sunsets go to waste either and he was already dressed really cute, so we grabbed my camera, a flash, a little chair, and headed to the backyard. Yesterday I tossed them in my computer and did some very minor editing. You can see my fence line isn’t that beautiful but how about that cute little face!

What I love most about photographing babies and toddlers is how raw they are. You can put them in a certain situation to attempt to contain them (like the chair), but you can’t really pose them. I love that. I just sit and wait it out or act silly and they will eventually give me something cute. Even if it isn’t necessarily the mood or face I was after. I love the pouting and crying pictures too! They’re kids, they cry sometimes. I love the silly faces, the mean faces, the “get out of my face with that camera” faces. Those are all keepers.

I have a goal this year of photographing my older children more, but they aren’t always as eager to sit through a photo session with me. They also tend to be gone for the weekend when I have time to get out my camera for personal reasons. I have a goal of including myself more with my family and alone. I’m not where I want to be weight wise and I’m struggling with my hair a bit, but I’ll be thankful someday that I took my picture anyway. If you’re considering bringing your child out for a photo session with me consider getting yourself ready as well. You may just want to jump in there for a few, and you’ll love yourself for it later.

Mommy and Me (Generational) and Sport Session

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to photograph family from out of state. The adorable mom and her son are from Florida and really wanted to see some snow while they were here. It was funny because we hardly had snow all winter long here in Northern Illinois, but we had snow for her. Brr. Along with her and her 1-year-old son was her dad. We were able to capture a picture of the 3 generations which is a beautiful thing for families to have. I also put together a composite using frames. It’s just a fun way to showcase a family right? This little guy was so well behaved for his age!

The rest of the session was mainly sports themed. It turned out really cute. I hunted high and low for a little net to use for her requested Blackhawks theme. I also found cute little hockey sticks that fit perfectly with the theme and he loved them.

Although hockey was the main event, there was a change in clothing that lead to baseball. I found these cute little bases and already had a bat and ball. How cute are these 2?

What’s a sports session without a composite? It has to look legit right?

Special composite requests are not included in the session fee. Composite pricing starts at $25.  If you are interested in a custom creation for your family let me know before the session. I like to plan the shot ahead of time as some require specific lighting.

Valentine’s Day Mommy and Me Session!

A holiday session and a Mommy and Me combined <3

Here’s a session I did in studio before Valentine’s Day. Photography is for any moment you want to remember. This was hers.

This little cutie came in with his mom who had a creative moment she wanted to capture with her little guy. I think it turned out pretty adorable and I’m so glad they came out to visit. Sessions with this age group are challenging but so rewarding. Every mom has concerns about cooperation but if we wait it out we will get a few keepsakes that will last a lifetime. I know they were happy with theirs. I also couldn’t love more that she knew exactly what she wanted. I have creative projects I want to see through, but sometimes, so do the moms that come to see me. I am as determined as you are!

Fall, my favorite season…

It’s here, it’s here! I love fall. I love the smells, the colors, the cooler temperatures that are perfect for a hooded sweatshirt and jeans, and the fact that I’m rarely ducking and hiding in shady places to get away from the hot sun. Yes, I do that. My family and I just got back from our Disney trip last week and fall already seems to be ending! Ahhh….why can’t pretty fall weather be longer than summer??? Well anyway, before our trip I had the privilege of photographing one of my favorite little families. Please enjoy some of their photos. I won’t be getting in many more families this season so please contact me if you haven’t gotten around to yours yet. I hear you, I haven’t either. It’s been a busy year.
