I have known L and her family for a couple of years and on today’s shoot I was reminded why I liked them in the first place. They are really such a loving, sweet and FUN family. L is one of those people who has an infectious laugh and zest for life. She and her family were so great and I really had a fun shoot with them today. We have talked about doing a family shoot on a beach for some time and we found the perfect spot at Fort Sheridan Beach in Highland Park, IL. For those who have never been, I wholeheartedly recommend making the trek out there. The vast beauty and lush nature will NOT disappoint! The temperature, however, will leave you a bit chilled so remember to bring a coat. Don’t let those vibrant smiles fool you, by the end of our shoot my subjects were ready for a winter coat and a hot latte!
