My photography career started as a simple wish to document my children’s lives as they grew. Slowly my friends started asking me to come and take their pictures. One day I looked up and had a career in photography in front of me! When I look at this downtown Hinsdale family session, I am so proud of the steps that I took to get to this point professionally. Still, even more, I am filled with overwhelming gratitude that families like the Chamberlain’s trust me with documenting their lives.
Shooting during the winter can be challenging to find vibrant and beautiful locations that aren’t too Christmas-y. Hinsdale decorates their downtown so beautifully for the holidays, but we were also able to sneak into alleyways and get such awesome pictures. With the downtown area as our backdrop, the pictures we captured during this session provided a nice variety. These pictures can easily be used for holiday cards and to display in the Chamberlain’s home.
I especially love how vibrantly the red bricks, deep lush greens of the trees, and tans and taupes of the buildings sing in these pictures. Downtown Hinsdale family sessions are some of my favorites because the architecture makes the pictures so interesting to look at. I can see any of these pictures printed and hung on the Chamberlain’s walls to enjoy year-round.
Downtown Hinsdale Family Photos Don’t Have to Be a Production
One of the best things about living where we do is the beautiful locations that we have outside our front door. There is no reason to drive hours to a secluded nature preserve or brave another day in traffic to go into the city. Family sessions should never feel like a production. When we’re working together, you will see how easy and fun they can actually be!
