Lincoln Park Portrait Session | Kara

When I met Kara near sunset in Lincoln Park I immediately knew I was going to get along with her. Have you ever met someone who right off the bat, you get along with so well, vibing off of each others energy, like you already know them? Kara showed up with her hilarious and familiar attitude, making jokes with me and excited to begin taking pictures and I knew it was going to be one of those sessions. 

I haven't had a sunset shoot in such a long time, and it was so refreshing and invigorating to chase the light and create gorgeous images with Kara. She is so fun, goofy, and genuine and I loved every second we spent together. Thank you again Kara for letting me photograph you, and happy Friday to everyone!
