We were recently in Chicago for a family event and while we were there we connected with my best friend from college in the suburbs for a family session on a brisk fall day in the park. It’s fun to photograph old friends and to be able to get their kids and ours together for a visit during our road trip. We go back over 25 years and it’s always a lot of fun when we get together.
Anyone who knows my buddy Barry knows he’s pretty passionate about his dogs and of course Half-Face and Omar were going to be included in the family portraits. That’s where we’ll start – with all of the family!
Great family and are those dogs beautiful or what?
Next we focused on getting some photos without the pups and if you have been a frequent follower of our work you know Ally is a big fan of the “family hug”!
The kids are getting to be so grown up! To you they just look like great looking kids – for me it’s different because I’ve known them from the time they were born!
Here is a fun little behind the scenes vine from the session:

Next we focused in on getting some shots of just the kids as you can see from the vine. Here are a couple of great ones…
So cute right? Little sister loving on her older brother! Having a boy and girl ourselves we just know this is exactly how they always get along!!! Right?
And one more of the two of them just relaxing and hanging out together.
So there you have it – on location with old friends in the Chicago ‘burbs – it’s about as good as it gets for us! We hope you enjoyed these highlights from the session!
