For families looking for authentic, documentary style photos, we recommend a full one hour family photo session. This allows time for little ones to warm up as well as time to capture more carefree, natural connections rather than a just some quick portraits. If you cherish fine art photography and adore a photojournalistic approach to capturing the personalities within your family, we recommend these relaxed sessions. A documentary family photography session can occur at an outdoor location of your choice within a 20 minute drive from 60625. Location examples include Foster Avenue Beach, Kathy Osterman / Hollywood Beach in Andersonville, the Wrigley Building, Chicago Riverwalk, Mary Bartelme Park, charming Menomonee Street in Lincoln Park, the Wicker Park neighborhood, Fulton Market area, or the peninsula at North Avenue Beach overlooking the iconic Chicago skyline.
