I first met Candy through work and instantly felt a connection with her, probably because she is from the Chicago area and I grew up about an hour and a half from Chicago. That, and we both attended the same college, yet had never met. It’s funny the things you find you have in common with co-workers, how your paths have probably crossed before and you probably never knew it.

I was excited when Candy asked if I’d photograph her family for some updated spring portraits. We decided Furman was close to our neck of the woods and set up a day for the session. I had heard all about her two children, Connor and Jenna, and all the funny things they say, and couldn’t wait to meet them.

The evening was perfect for the photo shoot, not too hot and not too cold. The kids did a great job at the session and had tons of energy! We had a good time tromping all over the Furman campus, chasing squirrels, yelling at the squirrels, calling the squirrels names.

Thank you for allowing me to photograph your precious family!
