Instagramming - June

I know, I know, I know. It's already half way through July. But it's been a busy summer so far. Fun, but busy.

Here is some of what kept me busy in June.
- Bonding with Taylor at his favorite dog park  -  the best homemade banana split ever  -  watching the flowers bloom in our backyard  -  Wisconsin for a weekend  -  lots of time spent on my back patio  -  supervising playdates with Taylor's girlfriend  -  lunch hours spent wandering downtown  -  seeing Roger Waters play The Wall at Wrigley  -  tasting the first fruits of my garden  -  getting my two week vacation for the honeymoon and wedding approved (!)  -  mole removal  -  reading "Love in the Time of Cholera"  -  my firm's annual summer outing on a steamy rooftop downtown 

Here's hoping I post all about my July sometime before September.

Full Circle

You may remember these faces. They weren't supposed to be featured on this blog again. So you can imagine how excited I was when Kathleen reached out to me and asked if I could take one last round of photos. The reason?
You may remember that the first shoot I ever had with Kathleen and Paul, she was pregnant with their son - their first child - Jack. Jack is no longer a baby. He's all little boy, wanting to run and jump and kick a soccer ball and explore things. He's also pretty darn excited to be a big brother. And as for this baby, I can think of no luckier kid than the one being born into this family.

Last time I thought it was their last shoot in Chicago. They had plans to move out to the burbs before they moved to Virginia this summer. They did decide to stick around Chicago just a little bit longer, but I am pretty sure this will be our last shoot for a while. A few days after I took these photos, they hopped in a moving truck and began their trek south.

So now, here's hoping for a reunion either here or in Virginia. I know I'm already crossing my fingers.
