Ida and her family moved recently to Riverside, one of Chicago’s nearby suburbs. They asked me to come visit and I met the crew in downtown Riverside for a family session. The spring colors were at their peak, Ida was in her favorite dress, and we were ready to take some pictures!
Ida was a little camera-shy at first, reluctant to open her eyes. Her mom and dad decided that they’d keep their eyes closed, too, so that the whole family would match.
After a few clicks of the shutter, Ida was cool with camera again.
There are so many gorgeous parks and landscapes to explore in Riverside! I’ll have to remember this lush, green location for future shoots!
Ida picked out the perfect dandelion…
…and made a wish before blowing it out.
The four of us headed back to Ida’s house for the last part of our day. Ida’s family was in town to celebrate her birthday, so we took a few pictures of her extended group. But Ida was more excited to show me her play equipment in the backyard.
She has a swing…
…and a rock climbing wall!
And a fun slide to go down! What a lucky girl!
It was great to see you and your family, Ida! Have a fun summer!!
