Angels Run Free | Chicago North Shore Photographer

Sometimes you have to prove to yourself that you can do it. Sometimes, you have to prove it to your husband. The image below is taken of my two sons, ages 2 and 3. No clients children are a challenge getting together like my own. I have plenty of wonderful images of them separately, but together (and not wrestling one another to the ground) is a whole other story. So we are on the beach on a warm evening just before sunset, I’m trying with the best of my ability to conduct a professional portrait session with the little dears who call me mom and run the other way when they see my camera. The light is fading fast but I know the light is perfect now and I need to get my shot. My husband, bless his heart, is doing the best he can to rally the troops as they decide throwing sand at each other would be more fun than the serene sunset beach shots I had envisioned.¬† I tell him in the most confident voice I could muster, “Now I want to get a shot of them running down the beach holding hands”. I might as well have told him we were going to attempt to walk on the water, what an impossibility it seemed at that moment. But low and behold, racing to their mama was right up their alley. My husband, looking amazed asks me “Did you get it?” I nodded, “Yeah, I got it.”

Beach sessions are gorgeous on summer evenings. Sand and water act as natural reflectors for sparking, surreal images of you children and your family. Book  a beach session with a Chicago North Shore Photographer and let us head out and maximize natures most perfect backdrop!
