Chicago Sunset Family Session | Lincoln Park Zoo | North Avenue Beach | Heather Hackney Photography | Chicago Family Photographer

I have to start off by saying this might be one of my favorite session's to date.  When Heather contacted me inquiring about a family session, I was so excited to learn that she was interested in a Chicago setting as well as some images on the beach.  We talked for a few weeks beforehand about what to wear and instantly connected over our love for fashion.  I seriously could not wait to meet her and her family.  We met by the zoo, and it happened to be the busiest day ever!  Weddings, families everywhere and no joke, even a 5k race running right through where we wanted to shoot.  We could not stop laughing at our luck.  But, I am so happy we stuck around and ended up getting some gorgeous images in the warm sunlight before heading over to the beach for sunset.  And wow, what a sunset it was.  The sky looked as if it were painted by hand.  We kicked off our shoes, took in some breathtaking views, played in sand and danced by the water until every last drop of light.  I could not stop smiling the entire session, and the entire time I was creating this slideshow.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did shooting and making it.
