Remember when it was warm outside, you guys? I’m pretty sure that was only about a week ago and yet when I stepped outside this morning my hair (or what’s left of it), still damp from the shower, crystalized in a matter of seconds.
I love Chicago, but I’ll tell ya. Sometimes. Hoo boy. It is…. just so cold out there.
In that spirit, I thought I’d post some portraits from back when it was sort of pleasant out. Let’s gather ’round the campfire and remember, shall we?
Back in September, I had the pleasure of capturing some pictures of Jan and Karl on their 25th anniversary! Their kids thought it would be fun to surprise them with a session. Everybody was dressed to the nines and on their way to a fancy dinner out on the town.
It rained all day until about a half our before we started the shoot. Sun came out and everything was golden. Tons of fun to work with this happy couple. Many happy returns!
It was about a month later that I got the chance to head out to the suburbs to capture some pictures of Laura, Mike, and their boy Robbie. Who, I mean, just look at him. Adorable.
I’ve actually known Laura since I was a little boy myself, and now that we’re both in Chicago it’s been amazing to reconnect and watch her and her family grow.
(Remember, guys. This was like a month ago. Look at it. Green outside. And no coats! … And happy smiles to boot!)
So much fun hanging out with these guys in the park. A very happy family.
