This weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with this sweet family, about 2 hours south of Chicago. I went to college with mom and dad (previously and also known as Erica & Tom:). It always makes it easier when you have a connection with the family you are photographing. I still get butterflies and usually don’t sleep much the night before my sessions, because I’m too busy thinking about how I can capture the authentic moments and expressions in just 2 short hours together. Well, Erica, Tom & Co. made it easy. You guys are just as great as you were back in college, only better. Thanks for trusting me to capture your beautiful family. I hope you love these as much as I do!
