Lincoln Park Zoo Family Photos - Kanner Family

It's been a really hot and muggy summer in Chicago, but nothing was going to stop the Kanner family from taking their family portraits over at the beautiful Lincoln Park Zoo. You see, they are visiting family here in Chicago ALL the way from Berlin, Germany, where they currently live. I had the absolute pleasure and honor of photographing Kersty and Brian's wedding almost 2 years ago, so this was a very rewarding family shoot for me. I love being able to photograph the wedding of a couple and then continue to document their lives once they start a family - it's really the coolest thing for me to see that family grow! 

Here are a handful of my favorite photos from their Lincoln Park Zoo family photos. I love the little ones eyes, they're so intense and so "German" as Brian would say. Thanks!

Kassie Senior Portraits

I had the privilege to photograph Kassie for her senior portraits. We decided to shoot at the beautiful Lake Katherine in Palos Heights, IL. I had been there before to photograph a family, but I did not spend a whole lot of time scouting out the entire area. This time I gave myself plenty of time to scout and I was able to find a few great spots. I was able to find plenty of spot actually. This is a great place to shoot.

Kassie was so much fun to work with. We talked about school and about the college she decided on attending. There were a lot of images of Kassie just cracking up that I did not post, but that just showed me that she is not afraid to laugh and enjoy life. Her lively spirit gave me a creative boost to try a few different ideas. I wish all of my portraits were this fun.
