We had our family photo shoot this weekend. It was originally planned for Friday late afternoon at the Chicago Botanic Garden but the weather did not cooperate at all so we rescheduled for Sunday afternoon in a different location. Turns out I learned of a well-hidden gem right in the middle of the city--the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pond. Our lovely photographer, Jessie, suggested it and I'm really glad she did. First off, it's much closer to our home and second, now I have a place to seek refuge with the girls when we're downtown or at the zoo and they become overstimulated.
Jessie was nice enough to send me a sneak peek of one of our photos and I really like it! Can't wait to see the rest now.
SimplyJessie.com. She has a great blog with gorgeous photos. We've had her take our photos every year since Kate was born and even though she has relocated to the west coast, we try to fill one of her coveted spots when she visits Chicago.
