When Simona contacted me with the idea of spending a weekend with her family in Michigan, I couldn't wait to say yes and get it scheduled! I've been photographing her and her family for a few years-- from their first baby announcement, maternity photos, new baby, family trio... and I was regretting missing her new baby's photos after I moved from Chicago. Luckily I was able to go and photograp her growing family on the perfect fall weekend in Michigan!
We spent an afternoon at Critzer Farm enjoying the goats (who totally photobombed us), corn pit, corn maze, and picking out pumpkins and gourds. Then, we used some of the gorgeous natural foliage on Simona's parents' property as a backdrop for portraits. We finished with late afternoon at the beach, where a storm was trying to roll in but the sun kept shining!
