The Suburbs Family Photographer – Does Family equal free sessions?

Meet the Andersons! My family:)

I love it! Being a family photographer is an amazing job, especially when you get to photograph your family. I think being a suburbs family photographer has it’s benefits too, especially when you’re not too far from your own family. As a fun way to give them a fun gift while their in town, I’ll bring them over for a quick photoshoot! This session was on my old hardwood stage, but I’ve updated it since then!

Suburbs family photographer on a mission! Meet the in-laws…

During the holiday season, my brother and sister in law were in town and I couldn’t help but get them in front of the camera. After all I am the family photographer for my whole family. Anytime anyone is home for the holidays or just here for a little visit I try to get them in front of the camera. Anyways, they came over for an indoor studio session because hello its -5 degrees in Chicagoland area, lol. So they came over after a big day of enjoying the Navy Pier Winter Wonderland indoor park.

Family photos when they’re exhausted though?

I wasn’t sure how it would go, since it was last minute and I knew the kids would be exhausted from such a long

day. But they fell asleep in the car on our way home to the suburbs. I was so relieved when they woke up in good moods. Our session took only about 4o minutes and it was pure bliss. We got so many good smiles from the kids. My mom even requested prints asap from me haha. Now looking through these photos I realized how quick those two weeks went when they were in town and I’m so happy we took these photos when we did. Now we will have the photos for a lifetime. I could just squeeze them both!! I love having family around.

Let’s all take family portraits together!

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.
