Ionee :: Chicago Senior Portraits

I very rarely have complete creative control over a shoot. Clients often email me and ask about locations and some even send me photos of outfits that they’re thinking about wearing. However, when my sister-in-law Ionee told me she wanted me to take her senior pictures while she was in town this week, I knew that I’d be to carry out a whole vision.

Ionee lives in Fulton, KY and she’s a senior. She wanted to shoot her senior photos while she was in Chicago because she knew they’d be different than what all her friends will have (you know, lots of hay and barns). So, we started talking about what “look” she wanted and started Skyping about outfits before she ever got to town. A few shopping trips later, we were ready to go!

It helps that Ionee is absolutely gorgeous, and she loves to indulge my inner stylist. We had a blast styling and shooting the photos. We’re heading back out later in the week for another round and another look. In the meantime, hope you find these as fun as we do!

Love these.

A quick drive over to Goose Island…


We had some fun with some washable paint.
