The G Family are Chicago natives. And not only were they all born and raised here, but they are devoted, loyal and true Chicagoans. They wanted to do this year’s shoot around some of the hot spots in their beautiful city. Places like Navy Pier and the Scenic Views, the Crystal Gardens, and others are great locations for a shoot, but they’re especially ideal if the Chicago weather isn’t cooperating – which it wasn’t .
I love how they are all so comfortable with one another and with their own family dynamic. They obviously love each other fiercely, and when I photograph them, they want me to capture them in their most natural states – playing, hugging, running, just being together. From my experience, when you let kids play and explore instead of pose and “do this,” the photos turn out so much better. You will see that these are no exception.
It’s such an honor to photograph beautiful families like the G family year after year. I love watching the kids grow, change, and mature. And I cannot wait to see this lovely family next year, and the year after that.
