What do you get when you combine the unparalleled Chicago skyline, uber perfect sunlight, a hilariously animated assistant making the kiddos laugh, and probably the most photogenic family in the world? This…
This past Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing, for the third time since I started JT Photography, my brother, sister-in-law, and my nephews. If you’re following me on Facebook, you already know that I’m pretty obsessed with these boys in general, but getting to photograph them in my element was so.much.fun 🙂
Our journey started early, leaving my brother’s home in Wheaton at 6:30am. We scooped up my lovely assistant (and long time best friend, Jessica) in Oakbrook, jumped on 290, and were on location by 7:28. Perfectly on time since the shoot was scheduled for 7:30am. For an hour we walked along the lakeshore, played in the sandy beach, and even climbed a lifeguard post; all the while capturing the smiles and laughter along the way. Sharing my passion with the people I love is such a blessing and I am more and more grateful every time I get to do so.
I’m also so thankful that my brother and sister-in-law have trusted me year after year to take their family photos. My family and friends’ opinions mean everything to me, and the fact that they continue to come back must mean they like what I’m doing (or they just want to support their little sister which I’m okay with, too).
I just can’t get enough of these cuties. I can’t wait to look back on the photos I’ve taken of them in twenty years 🙂
