Photography Edwardsville IL – SIUE Gardens

Photography Edwardsville IL – Danielle Morhaus Photography –Wow, what an amazing Fall we have had this year!  The warmer temperatures have been fantastic for outdoor family photo sessions.  Not to mention all the beautiful colored leaves still on the trees.  If only Fall could last till… Spring?  On a more serious not, this family is so beautiful inside and out.  We had such a great time playing at SIUE Gardens and making pictures of their family.

A Perfect Location

Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville has become one of my favorite locations to shoot family photographs.  In the morning I like to shoot on the far side near Cougar Village, it makes for beautiful back-light filtering through the trees.  In the evening, it is better to shoot near the bridge and water fountain.  Should we need to shoot during the middle of the day, The Lantern, provides shade from the sun that allows for beautiful portraits as well.  These photos were all taken in the morning, near the parking lot by Cougar Village.

Look at those smiles!  Asher was happiest in Mom’s arms, especially when Daddy would tickle and play with them both.  Dad even had Mom cracking up!

We always have to get in close for lots of love and snuggles with Mom & Dad.

There was also plenty of time to focus on just him and his perfect close up.  Although we had to get him to warm up, he was a natural at “striking a pose.”  Such a sweetie!  Don’t you just love his cute little bohawk (baby mohawk)?
