summer morning in chicago with the harers

Lincoln Park, Chicago

When it feels too formal to call your clients, clients because they really feel more like friends.


This is why I love my job. The chance to meet genuine and fun people like the sweet family I recently shot a session for in Chicago…the Harers.

Kyle, Mallory + their new babe Ford are truly are gems. I was beyond grateful to have the opportunity to hangout, get to know and capture some memories with these three. Their love for each other is all but apparent and when they laugh together, it’s contagious. Their desire was to capture a typical morning together both at home and in their favorite local coffee shop, Heritage Bicycles. Even though it ended up being a bit cooler out than it typically would be, we were able to still enjoy the day walking around their neighborhood and grabbing some bomb coffee and donuts as well. (My all time favorite drink there is the Iced Lavender Latte with Oat milk. You’re welcome.)

These everyday kind of days can feel fleeting, especially with a growing baby, but life is so precious and it’s these little moments that you’ll want to look back on and remember the most.

Their Chicago family session is below, enjoy!
