Montrose Bird Sanctuary Family Session. Chicago.

Sunday morning--near gale force winds and a somewhat skeptical toddler--this might sound like a recipe for disaster, but it actually was fabulous.  I met up with this lovely Chicago based family on my way out of the city and we shot all around the Montrose Bird Sanctuary and Harbor with 1 year old Max.   What a fun little guy! My favorite part of the session was how he would get a HUGE smile on his face when his parents waved around a poster with his photograph on it--they had made the poster for a friend who ran the marathon this year, and apparently, Max LOVES his face--every time it looks like he might be about to cry, we just got out the poster, and SMILES. It was super awesome!
