Katherine just graduated 8th grade. The youngest of three sisters, her parents are probably trying to figure out how time went by so quickly. I get it. You blink and they're grown. She's a super talented musician, playing multiple instruments. She's really funny. I love the crazy videos she makes! And she's definitely the kind of friend you want your kid to have. I'm glad shes's friends with my own children.
Kat's mom called me because she needed some updated images of her. I had a small time frame while my own youngest daughter was at swim class one evening late last summer. "It'll be quick," I said. "I'll just take a few," I said. Thirty minutes later in golden light, I had a lot choices. It was hard to pick which ones to show, but I promised to narrow it down. I know it's overwhelming to pick which images you love from your session. It's even harder for me! But I persevered and got it down to the best ones. She ended up with so many great images in her collection. The light was perfect. Katherine was energetic and vivacious. Every shot I took was just so amazing!!
So, in Gallery Park in Glenview, Illinois, we tried a few of my tried and true nooks and got just what her mom was looking for. These were some of my favorite images for all of last year.
Beautiful golden light filters the frame and lights up the tall grass in the park. The grass gets beautifully tall at the end of summer and is filled with wild flowers.
There are a few bridges in the park and we used them to our advantage. Then we hit my favorite tree on the bank of Lake Glenview. Using a 70-200 lens allowed me to capture the blowing leaves of the willow tree in the foreground, while leaving Kat tack sharp on tree.
Thanks for allowing me to capture you, Katherine. I hope you always treasure these images. I wish you the best on your high school career. You're gonna rock it! And thank you, Leslie, my beautiful friend, for trusting me to capture your daughters throughout this time in their lives.
