A backyard party | Northwest Indiana & Chicagoland Family Photographer

I had been envisioning a session in my head. A picnics. Trees. Flowers. Color. Laughter. Games.


Last summer I began talking to my husband about what ideas were brewing in my head. Often when we get in the car, that’s where I start to share my ideas and thoughts for Beth Fletcher Photography. He’s a great listener.

This past winter I held a contest, giving away a free session and $150 in free prints. Kris entered and won. I was so excited to be able to do a session with her family but I had no idea what was truly in store.

It took a few days for me to put two and two together. It was winter so I often found myself dreaming about summer sessions, especially in June (my favorite month!), I then remembered that Kris was a florist and that she also had a beautifully landscaped backyard. I didn’t know if she still worked with flowers or not but the idea popped into my head.

I just knew this was the family to with with my idea. Like the puzzle being put together.

So, I emailed her, I told her my ideas and not surprisingly Kris said “okay! and any other ideas you have…okay!” (she’s so wonderfully laid back. I adore that in her.)

As the day approached we planned and shared ideas and it just so happened that she was wanting to get her floral design business back in business. It just so happens, and I say this with my hand on my heart that Kris is brilliant at what she does. When she puts an arrangement together …

The day game. The weather was windy but the lighting was perfect. Her husband hung mason jars from the trees and placed candles inside and her floral designs were out of this world, surpassing all of my visions and expectations. Our session began.

It was so much fun.





And yes, in case you’re wondering, I’m dreaming up other ideas now. Just waiting to execute.

Thank you, Livovich Family. You are beautiful!
