I recently had the pleasure of taking Hank, Johanna & Rudy's photos this past Saturday at Eckert's family farm in Belleville. Johanna and I met in high school youth group, while Hank and I met through mutual friends. When they exited their car with Rudy leading the way, my face lit up. He was such a precious baby and behaved so well throughout the session.
This session is one of my top favorites. The apple orchard had such a natural & light feel for the session. My favorite shot is Hank leading Johanna down the strip of apples. If only there was a table and chairs at the top of one of the isles.
Christmas trees are one of my favorite things, so naturally I couldn't wait until we traveled down the farm. I could have spent all evening within those trees. I recently told a potential client that I would be content with Christmas trees on my walls all year long. The lighting was absolutely perfect and provided the perfect glow.
The session was ended the most perfect way, bringing these two love birds back to their roots with the Effingham feel. Golden light reflected off of an Indian Summer pond surrounded by whimsical wheat. The perfect dance floor.
Can't wait for more sessions with these two. Only if they promise to bring Rudy along.
Kuddos to the hubs for babysitting Rudy while Mom & Dad had some alone time.
