Lincoln Park Cooperative Preschool Auction | Family Portrait Session in Chicago

I had the privilege of photographing the Lincoln Park Cooperative Preschool fundraiser event and having my portrait sessions featured in the silent auction!  This has allowed me the opportunity to meet wonderful families such as this family and their adorable children. The ages of the kids closely matches the ages of my son and daughter which made it an especially fun session. We started off in their home, capturing the siblings together first since this is one of the more challenging shots to get. They did so great!! Then after some fun portraits in the master bedroom and a clothing change, we headed out to Wicker Park near their home. Here are some highlights!

Fall family portraits in Chicago with twin one year olds

While I’m delayed in sharing these pictures from the fall, it’s a bit nice to look at the colors and remember what it was like when it was NOT winter in Chicago! I wish we could go back to this moment with these darling twin girls. I had the chance to photograph them when they were brand new and so it is so fun to see how they’ve grown into little people with such different personalities. During a family session with kids this age, we start with pictures of the siblings together while they are still acclimating to their surroundings and not moving around as much. Then we move into the family portraits, fun and formal, keeping things light and moving quickly. Once we capture these ‘gotta have’ shots, then we can all relax and continue to get more portraits of the family and children just being themselves. Family sessions like this are my absolute favorite to photograph. These are memories they will forever treasure. I will soon be sharing what these beautiful portraits will look like up on their wall.

A snuggly newborn portrait session during an epic Chicago winter

Adorable little Baby L certainly has brought warmth to a Chicago family during a crazy cold and snowy winter here. Oblivious to the conditions outside, he has all he needs indoors with his loving family. He was absolutely perfect for his portraits, sleeping soundly the whole time, allowing me to tuck him into this bucket for one set of pictures.
