Gorgeous golden light is absolutely worth staying up a little past bedtime for. Booking a sunset shoot in Chicago’s North Shore suburbs with Rachel Friedman Photography is always an adventure!

As I catch up on blogging, I'm amazed looking at the collection of sessions on my "still-to-blog" list, astonished by just how many new babies I've gotten to photograph this summer.

It was the week of sicknesses - originally I had four families scheduled for this gorgeous day in the park, and then two families had to reschedule due to sniffles and fevers and chills.

As much as I absolutely LOVE photographing babies and young toddlers, it was so much fun getting to spend an evening with this family with two older kids too.

When I was first contacted by this mom, I could tell right away that we would be a great match for one another.  Not only did it turn out that she was referred my way by several past clients who I absolutely adore, but in talking with and meeting mom and dad, they are just the warmest and sweetest couple and such excellent parents.

Sometimes, it feels like fate when I meet a family.  This incredible family was referred my way by one of my mini-session clients, and it turned out that we had other friends in common without even knowing it.
