Veteran Acres Rustic Spring Portraits // Sindler Family
Honored. The best word to describe how I felt when Keely asked me to take her family’s rustic spring portraits. I met Keely at a wedding in Crystal Lake a few years back where I was the photographer and she was the fabulous florist. When I first met her and her sister (Marcy) I immediately felt like I had known them for years. Keely owns a fabulous wedding floral company in Crystal Lake called Mayfield Flowers. If you haven’t checked out her stunning portfolio, I suggest doing so by clicking here.
This rustic location in Crystal Lake was the perfect spot to capture their family portraits. It was filled with tall trees all perfectly lined up in a row, which when the light hit them, looked like something out of a fairytale. We chose sunset as our session time (which is always a photographer’s #1 choice). The light you get at sunset just can’t compare to any other time of day. This park was covered from left to right with rolling fields which was perfect for the two little ones to run around, play and just be themselves. That’s when their smiles shine brightest and it is personally my favorite way to capture families with kids.
We walked the park for a while just following the glowing sunset and I felt like everywhere we looked there was another gorgeous scenic background, worthy of being in this beautiful family’s portraits. As we walked, Keely had mentioned that they hadn’t had any family portraits taken in a long time. No pressure on me, right?! 😉 Seriously though, it was my ultimate goal (as it always is) to capture the most perfect pictures for this family where their personalities and love for one another shines through.
A special thank you goes out to the Sindler family for asking me to capture these beautiful moments for you. I’m so honored to be able to share images with you that you can remember and look back on for years to come. xo
