Labor day weekend is always a great time to visit the great city of Chicago and Chicago weather is so often very cooperative in September. IT’S A TERRIFIC TIME to create some high school senior photos while visiting Chicago (or the area). Dare I say it is one of my favorite months to photograph here because the weather is balmy, the light is pretty divine and everyone is still sporting their summer sun kissed look. While October weather can sometimes be iffy, September often is showy with inspired light to boot!
And while I am certainly not anti-Fall because I do so love autumn, I am also not rushing to get the pumpkin spice rolling or the Fall decor up yet. I am such a fan of the sunshine, long days, sweet tea and being pool or beachside that I go kicking and screaming out of summer into Fall!
This is my way of saying that September is the perfect time for photos, in my opinion. You still have summer and a touch of fall and everything that comes with both.
This Labor Day weekend I had the pleasure of meeting this young man and his mom, who traveled from Madison (Wisconsin, that is) to do some senior photos while visiting Chicago. The city is such a great backdrop for photos of any type but especially well suited for stylish young men who have a vision for what their senior portraits should look like. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Dana and her son C and a huge shout out to Darren for the in-Marma-family referral! 😉
On with the sneak peek…these are absolutely awesome photos that I am honored to have been part of the creation of. Thank you C! Thank you Dana!!
