What a week! I still have one session to process and another one to shoot. This was a fun session back at Lincoln Park. I need to always be mixing things up at various locations so Alec and I shot under the ferry dock (so cool!) and in front of this funky green cottage in addition to the park. He is building up a portfolio for his modeling career, which is sure to take off once they see his photo and meet him in person!
All my lack of blogging has lead up to a back log of things I can blog. Look out! (Actually I start an intense design project next week so that may mess with my hot streak. One of these days I'll blog about the design work I do too.)
I had a nightmare the other night that I couldn't recall how to use my camera and that I had forgotten memory cards and lenses on a Very Important session. Then last night after dinner I noticed it was a beautiful evening out so I made the family join me on a walk. I grabbed my camera. Good news, I still remember how to use it!
My husband endeared himself to me by saying that the photos of the kids playing and just doing ordinary things are the most precious to him. I feel the same way and was happy to hear he valued me lugging my camera around and snapping as we go about our business. I sometimes feel I am a nuisance, and not to mention geeky looking with a huge camera so that was nice to hear. Here are a few images from our Spring twilight walk. I'm looking forward to more days like this ahead!

Mark (the really cute guy in these photos) has been a friend of my husband and mine's since grade school and eventually was a groomsman in our wedding. Now the time has come for him to tie the knot to the obvious love of his life (knowing him since third grade I can honestly say I know this first hand!) I had a great time photographing Mark and Sonja and getting to see them interact in such a way that made me very happy my friend had found Sonja. We spent a morning at the arboretum to capture the beautiful fall colors. I'm so glad we did!
My kids with their great Grandpa. This is one of those moments I was so happy I lugged around my ginormous camera and was able to capture this precious moment. I will cherish this photo forever as it captures my Grandpa's spirit as well as my kiddos.
