Skyline Collective | Family Season | Chicago

Skyline Collective | Family Season | Chicago

For most family photographers, September and October are by far the busiest time of year.  My clients travel from all over Illinois and some from out of state for their outdoor sunset session.  We plan everything from their wardrobe and location to their exact arrival time so we can soak up every ounce of the gorgeous sunset skies.  Every single detail is accounted for except for one.  And that is, what mother nature will hand us with her skyline.  This makes each and every session so unique and challenges me in both a technical way and as a creative.  The artist in me squeals inside when I am gifted a skyline with intense clouds or orange and pink hues.

I will be adding to my skyline collective during family sunset season to showcase the beautiful skies I am given in the evenings.  I hope you stop by weekly for updated images.

This gorgeous skyline was taken at one of my favorite locations this week.  The clouds were spectacular and dreamy in every way.

Tuesday night’s skyline was simply breathtaking.  This beautiful soft box made for the most incredible glowing sunset.

Perhaps not a skyline image, but my view for this evening was absolutely beautiful.

These gorgeous clouds created the most calm skyline for this clients session.  Absolutely perfect in every way!

On this crystal clear day we were able to fly a kite and enjoy the gorgeous blue sky.

To see my most recent outdoor family session, visit a recent blog post including a video, showcasing my favorite images.  Capturing beautiful images of families is a passion of mine.  I just love being able to capture their special details that make each family so unique.  Sessions are fun, relaxed, and never rushed.  We play games, tell stories, and get some good snuggles in.  I work hand in hand with families to figure out all of the details and you will know exactly what to expect throughout the session.  To view more of my family lifestyle and sunset sessions visit my portfolio.

I have met some incredible new families this season as well as seen some of my favorite returned clients.  I appreciate each and every one of you and I can’t wait to start sharing all of these beautiful images with you all!
