You guys know by now that I’m a sucker for a good beach session, and this session did not disappoint this Lake Forest Family Photographer. I’ve known this couple for the past two years and have had the pleasure of watching them add two beautiful boys to their family. The recently moved from Chicago to Lake Forest. They now have a gorgeous house a few hundred feet from the lake front. What a fun place for these boys to grow up!
We decided on the beach for this session, and I’m so glad we did. We ended up with a gorgeous evening and took full advantage. The kids were so well behaved and were very obviously comfortable being in the sand and near the water. Yamila is originally from Colombia and has a beautiful 20 year old daughter. (I think they look so much alike and seem to have a really beautiful relationship.) Dale is such a great dad and a kid at heart. It was so fun to watch him interact with his wife and kids.
Of course, as with any good beach session, it always ends with someone (or in this case, everyone) getting in the water. The little boys were so well behaved and cooperative during the session, so it was fun to let them let loose and play at the end. They really are as fun and easy going as they seem to be in the photos. I got lots of natural smiles and laughter.
Schwartz family, thanks for letting me be your Lake Forest Family Photographer for this beautiful beach session. It was a really awesome evening to be out on the beach taking photos (I couldn’t have asked for a more stunning sunset). You have a beautiful family with such a fun and infectious energy. I hope these pictures are something you’ll look back on for years to come!
