family greetings from the windy city | chicago family lifestyle photographer

the purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.

Recently, I was listening to a podcast by some of my favorite photographers, and they mentioned how they pour their heart and soul and vision into a session. And it made me realize that that's essentially what I do when I photograph human beings- I'm pouring a bit of my soul, love, and optimism when I spend time with my family clients. Yes, I also aim to capture their little personalities, expressions unique to each adorable little human, but I'm also sharing how I see love and family. And it's really beautiful how all these little moments come together. 

Here's a recent family lifestyle session I did of this GORGEOUS family downtown. The sunset colors are just to die for, and I couldn't have asked for a prettier sky + cloud combo. Oh, and if I haven't mentioned this before, I just L-O-V-E using the wind! It just makes for really pretty movement in my images. (Side note: this family of three have THE. BEST. HAIR!!!!) Hope you enjoy some of my favorites! :)
