Extended Family Session | Chicago, IL


One of the best parts about what I do it the ability to document a family’s story.  Your family story is not complete if it does not include where you come from, which is just a part of what makes extended family photo sessions so extra special!  For this shoot I was hired by the Grandmother who was lucky enough to be blessed with not 1 but 2 grandchildren in one Summer!  Recently we all managed to get together – her husband, three kids plus their respective spouses and two wobbly adorable one year old grandchildren…oh yeah and two dogs!

In between the ’bouts of drizzling rain (though you’d never guess) & with a little bit of help from everyone’s photo friend vino we had a fantastic time hanging on the Glencoe Beach together and running around the fields above!
