This Chicago engagement picture session with Linda and Rodney occurred within weeks of their wedding earlier this fall. It was still a great opportunity to get to know them and witness their affection for one another. We were able to go to some familiar and not so familiar portrait locations.
The lincoln park is just big and versatile enough to feel as if we were in a different state altogether we loved stoping by the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool for some natural portraits. The lakeshore view as well as the skyline of the city never disappoint though. The surprise for me was the discovery of 12th Street Beach located north of the Northerly Island Park and south to the Adler Planetarium. Yes, although I have been to The Adler Planetarium a number of time, my adventures never took me on the other side of the building. And so, discovering a small beach there was actually à propos. By then, the light was dimming and I was chasing it, looking for enough natural light to expose my subjects. I will certainly return to the area for more exploration in my constant search for inspiration. Enjoy!
