Portrait Session | Hyde Park | Chicago

Head shot portrait FUN


Powerful. Strong. Charismatic. Passionate. And FUN. These describe this lady to a tee.

When Charisse first contacted me about doing some portraits/head shots in Hyde Park I become more and more excited the more she described who she was. Helping to empower others, especially women, to make smart financial decisions (see her website at http://charissesays.com/), she wanted photos that would show her personality. I LOVE doing photos for people who want their personality to come through. We decided to meet at Chicago Theological Seminary which was not only close to both of us, but a special location to her, and a space filled with incredible light and backgrounds. I told her to bring a friend and we’d make it a fun and relaxed time. So, with her best friend from childhood, some wine and cheese, and some favorite beats playing in the background, we had a BLAST.

I had to get some photos of these two childhood friends together, also. I mentioned there was wine and cheese, right? Yeah, we were having a great time.
