Abraham Family Portraits at Cantigny Gardens in Wheaton, IL

Jason and I pretty much grew up together (though he is a bit older than I am) attending the same church, and he’s also best friends with my brother-in-law.  Over the past few years Jason and Susan were out in Bloomington, IL, and had just moved back closer to the Chicagoland area much to the joy of many of us.  (He chronicled the transition for his family to move back as well as starting is insurance agency at this blog).  We’d been looking for an opportunity to do a family shoot all summer but it was quite difficult because of schedules, but finally were able to get something a couple weeks back.  We made our way out to the Cantigny Gardens in Wheaton, IL for some fun times with the family.

(side note:  Isabelle is also best friends with my niece Alexis, and has become like another niece of mine.  I think she likes me – except she constantly refers to me as the one who always takes her food…I don’t know what she’s talking about [kids always have good snacks wherever they go]. :) )

Little kids have so much fun making silly faces.  I’ve always wondered, though, where it starts…where do they get the inspiration to make these faces?  I think this answered my question.

Jason and Susan, I had a blast as always hanging out with you guys, and definitely look forward to seeing you more often now that you’re back ‘home’.
