Doss Family.

A quiet spot in a meadow filled with pretty purple clover, gorgeous sunshine, and some old farm sheds make for an excellent spot for a family session. What was even better: this spot was behind the Doss’ backyard. It was awesome! We played with Peanut Butter (their outdoor kitty), laughed a lot, and enjoyed a beautiful morning in central Illinois for this family session.

You know how there are some people in your life that will always be there? That’s how I feel about this family. The Dosses have been a part of my life since day one. Some of my first memories are with them. I remember our families taking trips to Chicago and Kenosha, and lots of mac and cheese, Congo Bars, and Carol’s homemade applesauce being consumed. I remember reenacting some scenes from Disney movies with Will when were 4 or 5 years old, playing dress up with Bekah in some crazy dresses, and when John was born. I could go on and on, but it would be novel. I’ve shared life with this family and capturing photos of them joyfully together made my heart swell. This is why I do my job. I love capturing people’s joy, sharing life with them, and telling their stories. Enjoy your family photos, Doss family!
