Mortensen Family Session

This family session was a really special one for me, because I actually photographed Carlie and Howard’s wedding alongside Courtney Dueppengiesser in October 2017!! To visit with these sweethearts again and capture the next step in their journey as they entered parenthood made my heart SO happy. And let’s not forget the real star of the show, 4 month old Wellington!!! If my baby fever wasn’t running rampant already, it’s definitely at a 10 after meeting this sweet boy. He’s the chillest and the happiest, and my cheeks actually HURT from smiling with him so much! 

I love at-home sessions because they are a beautiful way to capture families in their most comfortable states, and it makes for such intimate and natural photos. Also, can we please take a moment to acknowledge Carlie and Howard’s gorgeous home, which is basically a Pinterest board come to life?! The aesthetic could give Joanna Gaines a run for her money! Carlie please come decorate my house next, k thanks.

We spent part of our time together at Waterlemon Kids in LaGrange, IL. If anyone’s looking for a great indoor space for photos, parties, or playtime, you have to check them out!! With its white shiplap and trendy decor, it’s such a beautiful space (and I think Wellington loved admiring all the colors!)
