The Barnum’s : Extended family session at Prairie Center for the Arts

Two years ago, I got to meet this amazing family at Brian & Ali’s (couple on the left) wedding at The Onion Pub in Lake Barrington.  After adding in another grandchild, and celebrating 40 years of marriage, the kids decided to celebrate their parents anniversary by gifting them with an extended family shoot.

Well as life would have it, time got away from ALL of us.  After a little rescheduling and weather watching, we were finally able to meet up at the beautiful Prairie Center for the Arts park in Schaumburg.  This time, celebrating their 41st anniversary.  Because you know what, every new year is just as special as the last. <3

So here we go…

Happy 41 years to this sweet couple! Look at the amazing family you created!

Ali & Brian! <3 #egpcouplesrock

These two adorable kids may not have remembered me from Ali & Brian’s wedding, but they sure knew how to ham it up in front of my camera! <3

You better believe she is telling the BEST STORY EVER!! 😉

I mean, I feel like all school portraits should probably be like this, right?!

Love this silly girl!

And then this sweet family of ALL GIRLS (God bless that dad) got their turn.

🙂 🙂 🙂

All the grandchildren…well minus the one who can’t walk just yet. 😉

We had the most beautiful day!

BIG hugs for Grandma and Grandpa!


This brother/sister duo was beyond adorable! <3 <3 <3


And I think this baby girl has a LOT of amazing ladies to look up to in her life going forward. <3

<3 <3 <3

And of course one amazing sunset shot of my past couple (since it rained almost their entire wedding day!) 😉

Happy Anniversary and thank you ALL for letting me take these family photos for you! It was so cool to see what 41+ years of love can create.

To many, MANY more.
