The DeFors Family Winter Shoot

The day after Christmas can always be tough.  The post-holiday hangover is real.   If you’re anything like me, December 26th leaves you feeling sluggish from your increased consumption of cheese, summer sausage, cookies, and alcohol – I know, Wisconsinite at heart! But this year, I found the perfect cure – meet the DeFors family!

Lisa reached out to me a few months ago inquiring about a holiday photo shoot.  She wanted photos of her immediate family, but also with her in-laws! We decided on the “honeycomb” at the Lincoln Park Zoo as a good spot, and prayed for good weather.  Boy, did we luck out! It was mid-40 degrees in December in Chicago, WITH sunshine! That’s a virtually unheard of weather combination in late December.

So with the blessing of great shooting conditions, I met the group and knew immediately it would be a good one!  I could tell this family had a special bond, and they were all so friendly and easy to photograph – they really made my job easy!  From adorable kiddos to whole group shots, this shoot had it all!

I hope you enjoy the photos!
