A Dreamy Fall Photo Session

Fall Family Photography Kick-Off!

If this is the beginning of my fall season, I have a feeling it’s going to be wonderful! It finally got a little chillier this week, after what felt like a long week of 90 degree days. Now it’s gone down to the 70s and it’s awesome! So yay for fall family photography!!

I hope to see a lot of you this fall season. I have some last minute limited availability, so feel free to reach out.

Montrose Harbor in Chicago

We decided to take this session to the harbor, and believe it or not, there are some amazing photo locations that don’t actually include the water!

Although there are boats and water around, about this time of year they pull them from the docks. Instead, the colorful grass and trees make up a fantastic backdrop during the fall season!

I just love the colors of this family session! I’ve met with this beautiful client and her family for several years, and each session gets better and better.

Inspired Fall Family Photography: The AJP look

Over the years, I’ve been trying to get that “perfect” look for my family photos, but can you believe it, it continually changes! I used to think this was a problem, but… maybe that’s actually a bonus?

So I’ve discovered that every season brings a new kind of “look” to the editing that I do. In fall, I especially gravitate towards the oranges and rich contrast that makes me feel like I’m in fall, regardless of when I look back on the photos!

Another aspect of my look is that coveted Film look. Film is expensive and delicate, and I love the digital workflow, but trying to bring the two together is where I work the hardest. The soft bokeh background, and the fund contrast and mood was created as an homage to the amazing look and feel of film!

Photographing in Hinsdale, Elmhurst, and Evanston

Much of what I do is in and around Chicago. I meet with amazing clients through the Chicago suburbs! I provide my family photography to the beautiful clients in Hinsdale, IL. I take them to many of the locations that Hinsdale provides, including the beautiful Katherine Legge Park!

Many of my clients come from Elmhurst, IL, since it’s so close to my scenic locations! I will take them to lakes, forests, and parks that are absolutely gorgeous, and will get really good lighting during even the harshest times of the day.

I provide a select few locations in Evanston, IL and the surrounding areas. This includes beaches, parks, and providing in-home newborn and family photography sessions!

about abigail

Hi! I’m Abigail. You can call me Abbey, all my friends do:)

I'm a Chicago based professional newborn photographer. I also love photographing maternity, children and family sessions!

I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, in a small town in the suburbs called Western Springs. I couldn’t suggest it more! I dream about moving to the West Coast, California specifically.

My blog is a mix of galleries, journals, stories from my travels, and the behind the scenes of my life as a professional photographer.
