Oswego, Illinois Family Photography – Gemkow Family – Fall Family Photos

This was my first session in our new hometown of Oswego, Illinois! We lucked out on a beautiful but windy day and there were some great Fall colors in the trees. I really loved shooting here, we were at Hudson Crossing Park which is right on the river and you get a great feel for the beautiful trees and parks in Oswego, not to mention its super cute residents! Here are some of my favorites from their fun Fall session.
