The Colors of Fall
There is only one reason why fall is not my favorite time of year and if you are from Chicago you might understand. As the characters from The Game of Thrones TV show would dreadfully say "Winter is coming". Having grown up in Russia for 10 years, one would think I am accustomed to bitter cold winters...not so at ALL!
However, when I take the approaching winter out of the equation, Fall is truly a wonderful season. The cool breeze, Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks, and the fall colors do bring a refreshing change to a long and hot summer.
The fall colors also brought a vibrant back drop to my family photo shoot with Jess, Bobby, & Jase. As a photographer, I have not yet figured out the trick to make a baby smile and look at the camera on queue. So my back up plan is to take as many photos as possible and hope that I have a few that turn out alright. I have not had a photo shoot where this backup plan did not work. Thank you Jess and Bobby for allowing me to capture your beautiful family and create some photos to last a lifetime. Oh yes, thank you Jase...even though you make it tough for me. However, all is well between us!
These pictures were taken at the Spring Valley Park in Schaumburg, IL.
Daddy knows how to make him smile!
The picture in the red rocking chair was difficult to capture. Jase's sense of balance is not quite developed yet.
Jess kissing the baby is by far one of my most favorite photos from this shoot. I love Jase's blue eyes.
