Chicago Family Photographer | New Lenox, Illinois Studio | School portraits
Another summer has come and gone and a new school year has just started for my kids. Like most parents, I snap my back to school pic with my pinterest sign printed and in hand by my cheesy smiling child. But a few years ago, I started my ‘back to school series’ where I take each one of my kids during the last week of summer and capture them at that exact moment. Their hair is usually messy, outfits are not planned and I use some mad bribery skills to get them to participate. Believe it or not, most photographers have children that HATEEEE having their photos taken. Shocker I know! I spend about 10 minutes with each one of them and use my super cool ways to get them to show me their personalities.
Meet my oldest daughter, Gwen. She is one determined and strong willed girl but compassionate and kind at the same time. She has a gentle heart and always looks after her younger siblings. I am so excited for her to start her 5th grade year and I know she do great things in her life.
This is Tess, my incredibly witty 7 year old. You might have seen her on previous blog posts, about Marfan Syndrome. What can I say about Tessa? She is hilarious with a smidge of sass and she is very caring and honest (sometimes too honest). She has so many friends and will be somebody amazing when she grows up.
And my Noah. He is my 4 years old and will be starting his second year of preschool in a few weeks. This boy is my observer and has an engineers mind. He is always doing puzzles, building intricate lego buildings, and designing train tracks. He is very sensitive and loving towards his sisters and has the most gentle of hearts.
