Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner, and that means it’s picture season. I’m excited to announce that I’m offering 30-minute Fall Mini Sessions at two of my favorite photo locations in Chicago for families and couples.

Here’s the two options I’ve set aside for these mini sessions:

  • First location is Humboldt Park. I love the full of huge colorful trees, a lake, bridges and playground areas that give a lifestyle approach to your family photo session. Humboldt Park sessions, 8am-11am on October 29. FULL
  • The second location is a hidden gem in the middle of a beach. If you are looking for a more forest, high grass, folksy, serene image then a Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary session is for you. Just outside the bird sanctuary is an amazing clean backdrop of downtown Chicago. If you are looking for something more modern, this is also a great option for you. Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary sessions, 2pm-3:30pm on November 12.

Mini sessions include 10 images and one 11X14 print of your choice at half the price of a full session: $75! Book your 30-minute Fall Mini Session Today.

[If you’re bursting with great ideas and you’re looking for a longer session, I would love to get together to dream about your family or couple-specific photo shoot!]

I have awesome clients that become friends and who do awesome things for other friends. True story.

You may remember this beautiful expectant family from last May. Well, I received a text from Gene, the mother of now two gorgeous babies, that she wanted to gift her friend Jacqui with a family session. Tears! That’s so sweet. Jacqui had some family in town from New Zealand and Australia, and Gene wanted to make sure that this visit was properly celebrated with a photo shoot.

Enjoy the love and fun of this wonderful family!
