Fall is one of my favorite seasons to capture families and children in natural light. The sun is low, the temperature is right and the leaves are just starting to show their colors. A couple of weeks ago I photographed the darling Bendat – Appell family on a sunny Sunday morning in Highland Park, IL. After the first ten minutes, photographing the baby was like attempting to capture a fly in chopsticks Mr. Miyagi style. But, his supreme cuteness made me want to get him even more, so I chased him until he pretty much hated me. Thanks for being such a great family to work with Bendat – Appells, and thanks for helping me get my workout in early that day – it was an honor and so much fun.
