George and Maureen asked me to meet up with them recently for a session near their home in Humboldt Park. It was a beautiful fall day, and I was happy to be out and about, photographing this fun couple in such a scenic backdrop. To sweeten the deal, their pup came along with the ride!
We were in the final days of the fall foliage, still plenty of bright colors to enjoy. I love these spaces in our city that, in pictures anyway, seem to be miles and miles away from concrete and steel.
Their pup was so good in front of the camera, wanting nothing more than to give the humans the love they deserve.
And try as they might, dogs are just no good at climbing trees, unfortunately.
And although she couldn’t quite get up to join George and Maureen on the branch…
…she gave it her best shot!
It was wonderful to meet you, George and Maureen! I hope to see you (and your pup) again soon!
