The Bianchi Family
Ok, I admit it. All of this craziness with the holidays and the Santa Sessions has caused me to fall behind on life. One of the things I am most behind on is posting recent photos from sessions I’ve done to my blog. I have a backlog of quite a few to get up here! Sometimes I spend so much time editing and everything that I don’t get around to posting photos here as well. BUT, have no fear…they are coming!
So, on that note, I would like you all to meet the Bianchi Family. Joel and I have known each other since we were kids so when his wife contacted me about doing their family photos, I was super excited! You all might remember the post I wrote over the summer about the Militello Family. Well, Joel and Lisa happen to be brother and sister. Just a little back story for you all.
Anyhow, the Bianchi fam was one of my favorite shoots of all time. Their kids cracked me up through the whole thing. I met them at their house and then we went to downtown Elmhurst to do their shoot. I’d never been there before, but there were some great places for photos!
We started off in one of the alleys down there doing some portraits of all the kids together, just the brothers, and then individual portraits. I love the brick in these photos, really adds an “urban” feel.
As I was photographing, these kids just kept giving me goofy faces, dancing, and just having an all around good time with their shoot. That’s what makes for good photos! I was having a blast capturing them all having a good time together.
From there, we moved on to find a nice blank wall to do some family photos in front of. Just a little bit down the street we came across a nice blank white wall. Perfect.
We got some pretty cool shots of all of them together and also some individual portraits here as well.
We then moved on to the train station where we found some pretty cool bushes that I had the kids pose in front of. Once again, they made for awesome little models. I told them as we were walking away that they are great models and Danny asked “What’s a model”. So innocent. I love it.
They weren’t trying to model at all, they were just simply being kids. That’s what we should all do, but we get caught up in how our hair looks and what kind of face we are making. These photos just go to show you that if you have fun during your shoots, then it will show up on film later.
Thanks for being my models Bianchi Family! I hope you enjoy your pics and had as much fun as I did . Oh, and for those of you who like to read, check out Tracey’s blog. She is a fabulous person and FAR better at writing than I am .
