I had the best time getting to know this sweet family last Saturday as we wandered around Lincoln Park together. Ryder was an absolute top model, and I couldn’t get enough of his smiles! He showed off his walking skills, smelled some flowers, snuggled with mommy and daddy…it was all just too adorable. We wrapped our session in a very special place…on a bench that is dedicated to Ryder’s sister, who passed away when she was 10 days old. I feel such a deep conection with Nirali and Dax, and was so honored to be able to capture these happy photos for them. Thanks so much for hanging out with me, you guys!
