Fall in Chicago | Chicago Children Photographer

Let's talk fall and being a Chicago children photographer

Hey Friends, wow has it been a busy summer. From getting married, moving out of my childhood home, getting a husky puppy and running this fun photography business - it's been so busy! This fall, as a Chicago children photographer, I've got some amazing fall photo locations planned for the family and kiddos!

Everyone wants beautiful family and children photos in the fall season. I love booking with clients for the fall season, it's gorgeous! I'm also really excited about making some amazing children photographs using the colorful woods and forests nearby!

The Chicago Children photographer loves loves loves the fall!

I have always loved fall, even before being a children's photographer. Even before it was a trend to like fall and all things pumpkin. I used to love getting up early on a Saturday morning and walking around uptown Western Springs in a chunky sweater, drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks (before the changed the chemicals and caramel coloring  into actual pumpkin) I loved the crisp morning air, and by that I mean being able to walk around and not get sweaty since the summer days were so hot!

Fall is perfect for children sessions

Fall in Chicago is one of the most beautiful places on earth for a children's photographer. This past week I have been thinking about the other places in the United States that have better fall seasons than Chicago. I mean, of course Michigan, Vermont, Wisconsin, and I'm sure tons of other states have beautiful fall colors. But you can't go wrong with fall in Chicago.

All of this was brought on by this past week I drove with my husband Ben down to Savannah Georgia to visit my sweet brother and sister-in-law who just a newborn baby girl. While driving 19 hours both ways....ugh....we stopped along the way to see the start of fall in the other states. The photo below was taken in the Great Smoky Mountains this past week.
