Englert // Rockford, IL Family & Lifestyle Photographer

When Melissa contacted me about doing a family session in and around their home I was SO in. I've always wanted to shoot clients in their niche. People are real and comfortable and passionate in their real lives. Why not shoot them there? But I wasn't sure how to market it. "Hey! Let a complete stranger into your personal life to document your raw beauty and everyday mundane and messy tears. You won't regret it. . . I promise?". Could I say that? Could I deliver that? I believe that, but how to tell people? Then Melissa contacts me and brings it up. Hallelujah!

She said their little family would be moving soon and their lives would be changing. She just wanted to preserve this moment in time, this first house, this precious little boy, the family dog. Of course I said yes. :-)

Family Bible reading

Possibly my favorite family portrait to date. The connection between a child and it's parents is so precious.  You guys are great! Thank you for letting me into your sanctuary -- your home, and trusting me to help preserve your memories.
