Erica contacted me and was in need of new family portraits. Her kids are growing and the weather was great, so we decided to photograph the family at Chicago’s latest nature preserve – West Ridge Nature Preserve.
Their son is autistic, and loved playing by the stream, so we setup the shot in the full sun by the stream. It was a tough one with the lighting, so what I had to do was setup my light stand in the running water and on some of the shots I had to get in the water as well.
Overall, we all loved the shoot.
