OAK PARK FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: AT HOME PHOTO SESSION: HOWLAND
I drafted up a "I think we may need to reschedule due to the forecast" e-mail a few times, but I'm so glad I never hit "send" as it turned out to be a beautiful evening! We decided to skip the local park, and instead, have the session at their home. Which I'm biased since Oak Park is my hometown, but the homes are exactly that....home! Beyond the historic architecture around every corner (which is how I became obsessed with architecture/real estate), it's a true neighborhood. Their neighbor, recommended me. (Corina, thanks girl) The girls ran down to the end of the block to explore the bugs on the trees and came back to the stair stoop to tell me all about it. They skipped newborn photos due to the pandemic, and sure, the park would have been pretty, but home is so much more telling of how they lived during the newborn stage for their youngest. I can't get back time for you guys, but I did stop it for a few hours. Hope the images are a reflection of your beautiful family and home.
