c,My friend's Mom contacted me and told me that both of her girls were going to be in town and asked if we could do a photo shoot in Humboldt Park. I jumped at the chance, they are one of my favorite families ever and I never get to see my friend Jeanette.
They grew up as a family in the park, it holds many memories and I loved that we were going to do their family portraits there.
Rachel arrived first with her kids, almost 18 year old (I can't believe it) Julius, 4 year old Sienna and 2 year old Luca. I let the "littles" as the "bigs" refer to them as run around as I took pictures of them playing.
Jeanette and her Mom came and we went off to take some more pics until Dad came along. I absolutely love the family portraits.... they show the love they all have for each other as well as their playful manner.
It is hard trying to get 7 people (especially little kids) all look at me, so I didn't bark orders and direct. I let them be them and I was so happy I let their personalities shine. We ended the shoot on the Buffalo, the statue has great meaning to them all.
I had so much fun that afternoon and my only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend together. That day it was pouring rain, we were headed to my studio when the sun came out.... it was absolutely meant to be, and we headed for the park. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful light, it was one of those rare gifts I appreciate. Thank you for allowing me capture those moments that afternoon. Love you all!
