Siblings in the fall! Tiffany’s Family Portraits!

Kenny Nakai – Chicago Wedding Photographer turned Chicago Family Portrait Photographer!

So many of you know…I photograph weddings. It’s my passion. But…did you know…before weddings…I photographed kids and babies! It’s where I discovered that I am more of a relational photographer. Taking photos of Chicago’s skyline and flowers just doesn’t excite me. It was great to spend an afternoon taking portraits of these two siblings. And it doesn’t hurt that it was beautiful fall afternoon in Chicago!

These kids were so well behaved and so fun to be around! We headed to park in Chicago for their portrait session. I enjoyed goofing around with these siblings…a welcomed break from photographing a wedding. I am privileged to be their portrait photographer as I worked to make them feel relaxed so they could just be themselves in front of my lens!

These two are close…I could tell by their interaction…it reminded me of my own relationship w/my sister-

Again…a special bond.

She was a little more ‘nervous’ than he…so when you see her smile in these portraits…it is truly something special. =)

I’m not quite sure what is happening here…an audition for Chicago’s American Idol or Rock Band?

Fun times in the fall!

Love these portraits!

Mommy and daughter!

with love,
