A mother and her sons

I am so thrilled that I got to shoot a photo session for this mom (Heather) and her grown sons. Heather had told me she hadn't had family portraits since the boys were pretty young, so I'm glad she contacted me. I feel that for us moms,  its truly important to have photos like this printed and framed on the walls of our homes. Life goes by way too fast! It's special to leave these types of photos for our own families when we are gone. Future generations will enjoy these and want to learn who we were and what we were like, etc.

If you are on the fence about getting professional portraits done, please don't wait on this. I find this to be a very important thing for people to do several times throughout their lives. 

We took photos at Wilson Park in Granite City, IL. and the garden looked beautiful. Hats off to the workers at Wilson Park! You're doing a great job! We took several shots there then I told Heather about downtown and our art district and she said she hadn't been there, so we got in our cars and headed that way for some other shots of her and her boys.
