Of course Jay and I mostly photograph weddings, but fall means that wedding season is almost over and that it's time to switch hats to Chicago Family Photography. We really look forward to this time of year as we get to see our special families and past couples again and catch up. We also love meeting new families and helping see that the process of taking family photos can actually be enjoyable.

Our approach to family photography is to make it as fun and memorable as possible for everyone, especially the kiddos. Having kids ourself we also know that things don't always go as planned, so we're always prepared with lots of games that help everyone take their mind off what's happening and have a chance to connect as a family. We love playing hug tag or slow motion dance off with the little ones when they're feeling bored. We also love it when they bring their family dog and we get to take some group photos interacting with the furry member of the family.

This session was at one of our favorite spots, River Park in Lincoln Square Chicago. It's got great light and open spaces for the kids to run, two of our favorite things. This is the third year we have photographed this family and I LOVE seeing how the girls have grown. Especially the little one has really come to trust us and that's so special.
