A couple of weekends ago, I headed to Goshen, Indiana to take photos for my cousin’s wedding. Again, my cousin, Jenna (older sister of Heidi, the bride in my last post), is part of my Illinois family. I basically grew up with this fun, purple-loving girl. I was delighted when Jenna and Kevin asked me to take their wedding photos. It was a beautiful day in a beautiful space with beautiful people.
Growing up in Illinois, my family lived pretty far from most of my relatives, except for my cousin Heidi’s family. Our families pretty much grew up together.
Today, I still live the closest to my cousin out of all my relatives. It’s great. I love these two and I was super excited to take their wedding photos back in Illinois. While the ever changing cloud/sun/humidity combination made for the hardest shoot I’ve had thus far, I think we still got a few good ones. After all, I think it might be impossible to take a bad photo of Heidi and Hayden. They are the cutest.
Eliya, age 3, immediate best friend, expert twirler, big sister, will smile for the camera in exchange for gum
Aria, almost age 1, little sister (who has no intention in being in pictures with big sister), only here for the snacks
Good things happen in the prairie.
Heidi is my dear cousin. We both grew up in Illinois, and here we both are, transplanted into a small Kansas town. It’s been fun watching her relationship with Hayden grow over the years. And it was even more fun taking their engagement photos last Sunday.
Never let those haters hate. That Kansas sunshine is pure gold.
