Where should we take our family photos?

SBP-3078

I get this question all of the time. And while I can’t answer that question for your family – I can provide some advice, opinions and some things to think about.

First, I would say it’s important to decide if you want your session indoors or outdoors. For this blog post, I will focus on outdoor sessions. (a future post will be dedicated to indoor/studio sessions.)

Chicagoans are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area – with so many spots to choose from for a photo session

I’d like to send Beyonce a big thank you note on behalf of the entire nation, maybe even the world.

I mean, absolutely everybody is talking about it!! Yesterday, the Chicago Tribune called me about

On the cusp of the teenage years and not really sure of myself.

These sessions are a game-changer!  It’s not just about the photos! Build

every time a new family comes to shalimar b photography, as part of a pre-consult they are asked some questions to help me to get to know them a little before our session, to know what their hopes are for the session, and why they chose shalimar b photography.  i often hear from clients that one reason they chose to work with me was that the images on my website and blog look “natural and uncomplicated” or i seem to capture images that “can’t be posed for.” wow &#8211
