Van Kampen Family | A Riverside Family Session in Fulton, Illinois

This former family of 4 was ecstatic to add their 5th and final member, baby boy Benson! Mindy was fully prepared to be a boy mom from the get-go and I’d say she totally rocks the gig! All 3 of her little men (and the grown up one) absolutely adore her.

It’s funny how perfectly all 3 boys fit the stereotypes of oldest, middle and youngest! Brayden is the oldest, the calm one and mommy’s helper for sure. He will definitely have his brothers’ backs and always take care of his family. He has such a kind heart. And the middle “wild child,” Braxton, is absolutely hilarious (he removed his pants mid-session hahaha), but has embraced his role as big brother and is just as cute as can be with the new baby of the family. And that brings us to Benson. Of course at only 2 months old he still has to grow into his youngest family member spot, but he is so loved by his parents and big brothers. I’m sure that cute face of his will get him out of trouble often!

I have loved watching these boys grow up in front of my camera and hope to keep capturing their family memories over the years to come!

Van Kampen Session Highlights

Devoted wife, Christian woman, lip boss, entrepreneur, bar owner, true friend, workout addict, loving mother of 2...however you know Mindy, you know she is one heck of gal! I have loved getting to know Mindy and her beautiful family over the last few years. It's been a joy to watch her family grow and see her personal growth into all of these new roles and absolutely power through everything that has come her way. It was not easy to narrow down my favorites from their family session, but alas, here they are!
