And now I’d like to introduce the second lovely family that I got to work with last weekend!! If you missed it, I had two amazingly fun sessions at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. Check out the first session and then come on back for this one!
I met and became friends with this Mom and Dad while we were all attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Mom was a roommate of mine freshman year (well, we roomed together all four years, actually!) and we quickly became best friends. They’re both amazing musicians–Mom teachers choir in the Chicago suburbs and Dad loves performing with local theater. I was so happy to meet up with them and quite honored to be asked to take their family photos! The last time they’d had portraits done was about 4 years ago—and I was lucky enough to photograph them then, too. Little brother was just a baby then–and I can’t believe how much both kids have grown. They were so much fun to work with!! There’s very little in this world that’s more fun than playing with happy kids at an amazing park with gorgeous gardens on a Saturday morning. The fact that I got to spend some time with friends I haven’t seen in far too long (and don’t get to see often enough!) is just icing on the cake 🙂
