Emily + Austin Downtown Chicago Session

You know the phrase “six degrees of seperation”? You know how the world is so big, yet feels so small? Well this is one of those situations! Back in October I did a session at Brooklyn Bridge Park with Alex and David. Emily is a friend of Alex and happened to be visiting New York during their session and did her hair and makeup. Fast-forward to now, I reached out to Emily to see if her and Austin wanted to do a fun city session while I was in town for 24 hours. Luckily they were in town and I got to hang out for a few hours in downtown Chicago.

City sessions have become some of my favorite sessions to do. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good alpine lake/mountain session. Big cities allow me to get a little more creative. We can walk two blocks and have a whole different vibe then we did ten minutes prior. I also just love walking around big cities and seeing what they have to offer, and that’s kind of what we did in this session.

I originally planned on starting their session at a secret park I found with an amazing view of the skyline. Unfortunately, the park closed 30 minutes prior to their session. I quickly just walked around to find a new starting spot. Then we started walking towards the riverwalk and came upon another hidden gem, something I never would have found through Google maps. So what I’m trying to say is….I want to book more city sessions!! East coast to west coast and everything in between.
