I photographed this wonderful family on a warm and sunny day last year, when the weather was still very nice. They live in Evanston, just north of Chicago. I do on-location work and this family requested to have their pictures taken in their favorite spots around where they live. One of the locations was the Lighthouse Beach, where they like to spend time as a family. It’s a beautiful Evanston beach with a picnic area, a pavilion, a playground, an open field, and even a wildflower-lined trail that wraps around the lighthouse. It’s beautiful and if you have not been, it’s worth checking it out.
This family session was a Mother’s Day gift to Mom. She was so happy to have her family participate for the pictures and have these wonderful memories captured forever. The photos really show the love and joy this family feels for one another.
They were a dream to photograph. The boys are close in age and have a very special connection to one another. Their parents are the sweetest people too. All together, they had a blast just naturally interacting with each other as I photographed them.
They loved their images from their session and ended up displaying one of their favorite family portraits in a large size in their home. I hope seeing it will bring smiles to their faces and bring back great memories every time they see it.
The best part is that this family is coming in for another session, this time with their extended family, and to my studio. I can’t wait to capture them again!
