Winter has arrived early in Chicago. And the old man is really interested in being noticed. Snow? Check. Sub-zero temps? Yup. Frozen ponds? You betcha.
Today it was beautiful, so we’ll focus on that. As for old man winter, go easy will ya?
Know that old saying that the cobbler’s children have no shoes? Well it applies in my home as well- sort of. My kids will tell you I always have a camera on them- lots of taken here and there- ( I adore these candids) and yet- since I’m crazy busy, especially at this time of year we don’t always get the family time to set aside for our own shoot. This fall I was determined. Put it on the calendar and talked with everyone about clothing choices. Carefully chose a location close to a session I shot right before- generally got my act together.
And since we are an irreverent group~ we got the usual goofing off (which is totally my style- and clearly my children have inherited this trait).
But we also got some great shots of the whole fam~ even our pooch cooperated for the most part.
I won’t tell you why we are laughing- some more than others- in this shot~ I’ll just let you imagine what goofball move committed by one of those photographed.
Here’s to capturing the whole fam. I’m exhausted.
When I got a chance to head off to Paris in early October~ I took it. And I’m so glad I did.
I’m not much of a world traveler…in fact my favorite place is home, but this city, this beauty… don’t even get me started on the food.
And all the French spoken~ good day and good evening have never sounded so sweet.
So I love it when a family is willing to head deep into a location shoot…sort of like the camping site you reserve and have to hike to… And it wasn’t so remote- just far enough to get to the “cool” bridge and the gorgeous light. These girls are the of the most adorable variety, and mom and dad are all in for the fun.
