Let me start this blog post by saying this is one of my favorite family sessions of this year! I had such a great time photographing my friend, Diandra Asbaty, her husband John and their super cute little man, Madden and exploring one of Chicago’s funky neighborhoods with them. Being a child and family photographer, I have the privilege of meeting so many interesting people, but it’s not often you meet a professional women’s bowler. Yep, that’s right, Diandra is a pretty cool chic. A professional women’s bowler and member of Team USA! And her husband, John Asbaty, is an amazing chef at the awesome Panozzo’s in the South Loop. I knew when we first spoke about doing a session together, that she wanted something just a bit different, urban and fun.
After several recommendations from my fellow photogs (thanks guys!), we found this fun Fulton Market area. Every corner had something different, cool graffiti murals, awesome colorful painted garage doors and loading docks gallore. I was sad we only had an hour! There were so many great spots.
Here are just a few of the images capturing this adorable family!
