My cousin Amanda and I were both born in Chicago. She stayed there and my family ended up moving to New York. Some of my best memories are from our road trips to Chicago to see my grandparents, aunts, uncles and many cousins.
I was delighted when I heard from Amanda, wanting to hire me to photograph her family. They recently moved into a beautiful new home that they built themselves and wanted to get some shots around the house. Yay!
I was so grateful to have this extra time to spend with my cousin and her family, we just don’t get to see them as much now that our grandparents have passed away. My grandma would have loved seeing us together, her great grandkids running wild throughout the house. I spent the night which meant that I was able to get some of those early morning, messy hair, breakfast on paper plates type of shots..which are always my favorite.
Can I come spend the night at your house? Seriously, can I?
