Braelynn is a beautiful 1 yr old!  Isn't she just the cutest little thing.
It was so hot and humid and she did her best to be a trooper
she fell off the chair ):

Braelynn is sporting a vintage romper and green hairbow made by 
more images to come :)

John & Hannah Smith

John and Hannah were in town this week to see family and they decided
to have a photo shoot and what a day for it.
I just love the mocha and the color of this image so I had to share both :)

Hannah and John were so much fun to work with.  We were extreme hot and
luckily I brought a towel for the sweat :)  I forgot the bug spray in the truck
and when we tried to go for shots in the woods we were bombarded by
mosquitoes.  John had to use the towel to swat them away from us as
we walked as fast as we could through the woods ):  along the way I swallowed
a bug and started choking...that wasn't so fun.

In the end we found the pretty flower field so it was so worth the heat.  
I love these flower shots!

Beautiful details even in the small things

Today the kids and I went to Taltree to release some butterflies that we watched hatch and after we were done we went for a little stroll.  We didn't see much and as we were getting ready to leave we found one single monarch butterfly and a beautiful dragonfly.  The kids were just amazed at the detail that were in the dragonfly and the color was amazing.  God truly is a master artist and creator.

Meet Steven he is from Marian Catholic High School and lives in the St John area.  
I met Steven through his sister Jessica.

We originally started out his session at Wicker Park however 
the mosquitoes got the best of us there and we had to move on.

He currently works as a life guard at Olympia Fields Country Club.
His mother wanted him to get his session in before he got his tan on :)
One thing that Steven said all his friends know about him is his love
for coffee!

Thanks Steven for choosing DGPhotoDesigns to capture
your senior session and I wish you the best of luck!
