A Neighborhood and Family Worth Capturing

Being that I was mostly raised south of Seattle and have gone to college in Utah, I know many people who aren't from Chicago and to be honest, most people not from here have their ideas of what Chicago looks like or that it is really run down or at it is dangerous, but I think it is great, despite the awful winters, the other seasons are very enjoyable. I think this session captures my neighborhood down to the hostas in front of almost every home, the lush tree lined streets, the grey stone two flats and of course, the wonderful people very well. Of course, this isn't a representation of every neighborhood, but this is my neighborhood, St. Bens and I was so glad that I was able to photograph a session here. This nice family is having a new baby and I found the inclusion of the ultrasound photos of baby sister as part of our session as a new and interesting way to document the anticipated arrival of a new family member.
