This family is a hop, skip, and jump away from me. In fact, they are just one block over from us. They came to me as a referral from another client. It is always an honor when someone recommends me and passes my name along to their friends and family. We had beautiful weather which made for the ideal backdrop for the sidewalk family pictures in Lakeview Chicago.
This beautiful mom is a talented interior designer at https://linleeelbert.com/ and her home, as you can imagine, is a picture perfect canvas (pun intended). For this session, we started inside their home and then took advantage of the crisp, fall weather. I love photographing clients in their own homes. There is such an element of relaxation that comes with being on your home turf. We had a great time getting these photos. I’d have to say that throwing the crunchy leaves was the highlight of the session. I mean, isn’t that the highlight of every fall day when you’re a toddler? It’s always fun to watch toddlers enjoy the leaves.
Speaking of kiddos, this big-brother/little-sister duo was just so delightful to work with. Oh, his love for that little nugget of a sister is palpable. I could just squeeze them both! I think his fascination with her is obvious in so many of the photos we captured. His little face is flooded with joy in so many of the pictures. (I especially love the photo where he’s got his arms around his sister with his eyes closed and she’s just grinning up at me.)
Elbert Family, I’m so glad we were able to meet and get a session scheduled. These sidewalk family pictures in Lakeview Chicago turned out beautifully, and I hope you agree. You have such an inviting home, and two very precious little ones. It was a pleasure working with you guys, and I hope you’ll enjoy these photos for years to come.
