lifestyle family photographers in chicago | family session at the beach

Filed in: family, film, kids

I think it’s safe to say that the weather is finally starting to take a turn here in Chicago. Though I must confess that I’m still waiting on a family who’s up for doing their family photography session in the rain.. can you imagine letting your kids splash around and play in the warm summer rain? I’m envisioning cute Hunter rain boots, maybe even if they’re small enough just letting them run barefoot through a bunch of muddy puddles (am I the only person who says MUDDY PUDDLES! in a British accent in my mind when I hear that phrase?). But I digress.. most of the time, I shoot in the early morning sunshine with families. Check out this family photography session at the beach for an idea of what a photography session with your family could look like with me this summer.
