Karpeles Family | Family Portrait Time!

Over two years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the Karpeles family in Arizona. We had just moved there and were in need of some friends! Unfortunately for us, they actually moved short after our move to Chicago! That just meant that we now had friends in another place in the States (and now we had a reason to go there!).

This family is so wonderful! It was such a joy to be able to spend the weekend with them. We decided to take some pictures in a familiar area to them in Chicago. We all had such a great time. 

Karpeles Family - I hope you guys enjoy these! Love you guys!

This little girl was so shy at first! Fortunately, she warmed up pretty quick. Even though she's not smiling in this photo she is so adorable!! Love the colors.

So the Karpeles wanted a background that seemed normal to them, so they suggested their local grocery store. Why not? I had never shot in a grocery store before! It was much fun and I think it added so much uniqueness to their photos. I love these next few.

So we wanted to get some shots walking across the street. I think we did it about three times. If anyone was watching us they probably thought we were crazy. Nonetheless, I think we got some good shots! Especially the next one! :)
