Kids are vibrant
They’re full of life and intensity: emotion without filter. They can often showcase themselves a lot easier than most adults. Remind them of someone or something they really love and they light up without inhibition. Photographing Chicago kids is a pleasure, especially when they’re in their element, whether that’s in a polished performance or plain old dirt.
Families are beautiful
The oldest human structure is family, in all of its infinite forms. Family photos reveal relationships and love. I’m a fan of how photos honor the connections that bind families together - even while personal feelings and relationships are complicated. Just like for kids, some families thrive dressed up and posing - others (like mine) are an art of grabbing memories in a style of mishmash comfort. If your family isn’t a trendy posed type, we’ll brainstorm an activity photo session that fits.
