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!
