Ummmmm…I hope you don’t mind the overshare. I could have shared every. single. photo. in this gallery. But I won’t, because that would be unreasonable.
You know how sometimes you meet two people who have been in each others lives for so long that there’s a wonderful sense of ease about them? That’s how I felt upon meeting these two. The comfort, the easy manner between them, the utter contentment. And the spark. Let’s not forget the spark.
Karina and Allister have been together since high school. 11 years.
(Hey Allister, it’s about time dude)
We had a bunch of fun downtown in Chicago’s West Loop. And then we headed up to Montrose Harbor (where this sweet little lady had her phootshoot), and it was even more gorgeous and perfect than it was when I was there last. It’s my hidden gem in the busy city.
This session was just so….easy. Don’t get me wrong — I love the rambunctious, crazy, fly by the seat of your pants-ness of a shoot with toddlers. But there was a certain kind of peace I felt that came with shooting grownups. I could get used to it for sure. And the love that these two have for each other just radiates in their pictures.
Karina and Allister, you are both lovely. Congratulations on your engagement!
