Last year, I photographed this family at their orchard, in Northern Indiana (which is an experience in itself, definitely a wonderful trip for the whole family). I was so excited when Erica called and said she had seen a recent session of mine at this location and they wanted to come up to Chicago for this year’s shoot. It’s always so great to see them! They are hands down the coolest family of seven, I know. They brought us some awesome treats from the orchard, donuts, caramel apples (with the works) and I showed up with orange soda and vintage candy favorites from our local specialty foods store. I think it’s safe to say that all of our kids were on a sugar high that night, lol. Ultimately, the light and the evening was gorgeous! Thanks for making the trip guys. It turned out beautifully!
