University of Illinois Campus, Champaign, IL
You all know Holly. If you don’t, you should. Just in case, Holly is an amazing wedding photographer out of Mahomet (Holly Birch Photography) and I get the pleasure of working alongside her quite often. She has also photographed several things for me, including the birth of our little one. This time, though, it was time for Holly to step into the spotlight with her hubby, Aaron, and two oh-so-cute red-headed kiddos, Max and Hadley. Aaron works in Lincoln Hall on campus, so it was fitting for us all to meet him on the quad for their session. I had a meeting that morning with a bride at Starbucks, and watched the rain clouds come in and the rain came down hard. However, Holly had faith that the rain would quit (being photographers, there’s not much wiggle room in our October schedules) and it did about twenty minutes before time! Holly did an amazing job throwing together their outfits to coordinate with Hadley’s orange, purple, and pink dress and made picking out wardrobes too easy! During their session, I had fun chasing around Hadley, chilling with Max, and wrestling with their dog Rosco. Notice the family photos without their dog… guess where he was?! On my arm! Yes, I can officially say I can hold on to an energetic dog with one hand while photographing in the other with my zoom lens! If only I had a behind-the-scenes photo to prove it…
Anyways, I hope these photos not only live up to but surpass Holly’s expectations!
