The F Family’s Diversey Harbor Portrait Session


When I arrived at Diversey Harbor in Chicago to meet the F family, the light was absolutely perfect. Clouds loomed in the distance, but I couldn’t imagine they’d affect our session. Well, they moved faster and faster until they totally obscured the skyline. The one thing photographers can’t control is the weather, though we really, really wish we could. I began to panic internally until my happy subjects walked up and something magical happened: the clouds parted just enough for us to see bits of buildings peeking out. We spent the next hour laughing, picking dandelions, and of course taking a snack break or two (the kids, not me!). Since our session, the family has moved away from Chicago, so I’m glad to have been able to capture a little slice of the city for them to hang in their new home!
