Remember when I said I was back in Chicago last week for a bunch of sessions? Well, one of them was with Bridget, Jordan, Avery and the brand spanking new Eleanor at their home in Libertyville. I've worked with this family earlier in the year, when Bridget was still expecting, so when she got back in touch to schedule a session to introduce little Eleanor, I was excited and honored. I just love this family--everything about them exudes love and joy. Little Avery is a performer at heart and, as soon as I got there, so warmed right up to me, showed me all around her room and even did a few "performances" for me at her stage. I didn't anticipate it, but as I culled photos this week, I realized that I had approached this session very much as a Day in the Life session--I tried to shoot not only just the family, but also the details and the little moments that often get overlooked during standard family photography--which is why you'll see a few detail shots below. All in all, it was a great afternoon and I can't wait to see how they continue to grow! Thank you so much, Bridget, Jordan, Avery and Eleanor! You're just wonderful!
