Last year I donated a lifestyle session to the local “Friends of the Library” event. Adele Bilyk was the winner of the silent auction & booked their August session earlier this year. We were fortunate to be able to photograph the extended Bilyk/Macahonic family at the beginning of the session, including the uncles, aunts, cousins, & grandma & grandpa – the whole fam damily! It’s a rare occasion to have such a large group of family together in one place so I’m glad were were able to squeeze them in before we headed to one of my favorite locations to capture some stunning images of the immediate Bilyk family.
Our family has been friends with the Bilyks for a long time so it was great to photograph them on such a beautiful summer evening – even if the mosquitoes were absolutely horrendous! Ron, being a die-hard fan of the Chicago Blackhawks, insisted on sneaking his Blackhawks tie in some photos which was hilarious! Thanks for spending the evening with us & we hope you enjoy your photos!
P.S. Congrats to Matthew & Paige who will be celebrating their wedding next weekend!
