So you purchased all of your digital images – now what should you do with them??!!! If you are like many people, please don’t let them just sit on the flash drive! Digital images are great to have for archiving photos – but you can also do so many things with them!

Love and connection – Family Photography Chicago

I’m always thrilled when a family chooses me to photograph them! When I spend a couple of hours with a family, I feel like I really get to know them and see how their family works and loves each other. So when a family comes back to me year after year – I feel really honored! I’ve had so many repeat clients this summer and for that I am always grateful.

I love the quiet and the calm – even if it’s just for an hour or two while my day gets started. But I also love Mondays because that is the day that I share images from a recent client session. I’m trying something new with my blog – Mondays will be a client share, Wednesdays will be a how-to, and Fridays

Summer in the Park – Family Photography Chicago

familyphotoschicago

Outdoor sessions are in full swing! This is the time when Chicago can show off all the beautiful parks and green spaces – in addition to the miles and miles of lakefront. When a family chooses to have their photo session outside,  I have several parks throughout the city that are my “go-to” parks. Much of where we go has to do with where the family lives – I try to make it easier for them to get there. This is one of my favorite places – Winnemac Park. It never disappoints
