Illinois Fall Family Photography – Jonamac Orchard

I was so excited when this beautiful Mama contacted me for some fall family photos and brought up the idea of shooting at an orchard. Jonamac Orchard in Malta, Illinois, was the perfect place. Beautiful scenery, a cute little store to buy fresh picked apples, apple wine, apple cider, and basically anything you can make with apples! Not to mention amazing customer service – they offered to replace my bag of apples after I dropped them on the floor. Totally my fault and they still offered. Amazing. Anyways, I so enjoyed walking around the orchard with this awesome family and was able to capture some great candid moments of their sweet new baby being loved on by his big sister.
