Meet the Thomas family! I LOVED taking their photos on my hour lunch break at Busse Forest Preserve right down the street from my work. Tricia (the one with the adorable 9 year old son) and I went to grad school together and now we even get to work together on Saturdays. I always enjoy the time I get to spend with her. She has such a bubbly personality and is one of the most selfless people you will meet. She has a big heart for helping people and works hard for her family. Her kindness and smile are infectious and I have loved getting to know her the last several years. When she first asked me to do her family photos as a Christmas gift for her soon-to-be-in-laws, I couldn't have been more excited! I loved getting to capture the care-free and laid back spirits of this family. Gosh I LOVE MY JOB!
