No Coincidences : Chicago On Location Family Photography

Soundtrack: well honestly I am really in the mood for Nine Inch Nails but thought better of it as it’s not totally family friendly and might send out the wrong message.  😀  So, I opted for the more family friendly Raconteurs.


Monday morning I drove to the way north part of the city, think Rogers Park/Loyola area for a session in a neighborhood that I haven’t seen in well, years.  It was a fantastic chance to get back to shooting on location and using the challenges presented to me.  I had a blast doing a quick mini scout of locations and to use what resources I had.  It’s great to stretch out the old skills every once in awhile.

Most importantly I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful family of 4.  2 little sisters, Natalie & Phoebe and their lovely parents.  Thank you for allowing me to capture these moments for you and entrusting me with your memories as well as for the awesome hospitality.  It is with great pleasure that I premiere a few sneak peeks for you:

    Beautiful Mare! Just stunning! I think I’m in love with that last shot on the water, the clouds and soft blue sky, the connection and inquisitive little girl looking out on the water, so peaceful – perfection!
