When Kelly asked me to take photos of her family, I felt so honored because she is one of the most amazing people I know. She inspires me as a mother, as a creative, as a photographer, and as a thinker. Kelly is the co-founder of Forth Chicago , is a super talented photographer, is is just so real and encouraging as a friend. Seriously guys, she’s amazing. I spent some time on a Saturday morning with her and the family exploring the Garfield Park Conservatory. It was fun to see the special relationships between them all. The kids got to run free and climb and be themselves, which I think is important to document in family sessions like these. As I was going through their images, I was really struck by all the tiny moments of connection–Willa touching her dad’s leg, the way Wyatt leaned on his mom during a moment she was having with Willa….these small, physical gestures are so moving to me. Kelly and Seth, thank you for letting me see into your beautiful world!
