Lauren + Colin ~ Downtown Chicago Fall Engagement Photography

Confession time, you guys – I thought I’d be much better at playing catch-up this off-season than I have been… and that is because apparently this year we don’t really have an off-season! Ah! We are certainly enjoying staying busy year round for a change, but it has been making it a little harder than expected to knock a few things off my to-do list I was hoping to do a month or more ago… like catch up on blogging our fall sessions!!

Looking back at photos from Lauren & Colin’s session – I’m reminded how cold I thought it was that day when in reality – that weather would feel balmy compared to what we have gotten used to this winter! haha! It’s all perspective, I suppose, huh?! It’s kind of hard to believe this session was shot on November 13th and we still had so much fall color in the city! I love loved this session because these two are just SO easy going and so good together!!! They have this ease about them and were always keeping each other smiling. They also convinced me that if we ever want to save some money and still live in an awesome city – we should probably just move up to Milwaukee! 🙂 The drink and dinner specials they were telling me about nearly had me convinced!! 😉

Anyway – enough chatter from me – let’s get to some of my favorite images from their session at Olive Park!! (Can I just say – Lauren has the prettiest brown eyes!! I could not get enough of photographing her!)
