Time for my annual red couch mini-sessions. I have been really fortunate in regards to winter every year. I always host these the first weekend in November, and tend to have sunny days. Well, if you live in the Chicago area, you may remember how horrible it was on Halloween this year. It was incredibly high winds and really cold. It was miserable. Well, these mini-sessions were scheduled for the very next day. So, for the first time ever, I sent out an email to all the clients giving them the option to reschedule their mini-session in studio or to keep it for the next day. More than half decided to reschedule, though it is too bad that they did, as the afternoon was sunny and actually nice.
We had the perfect location for this year with the beautiful grasses and not far from my car, so we weren’t lugging the couch too terribly far. Now here are the brave souls who ventured out the day after Halloween. I’ll be editing the rescheduled red couch mini’s next to keep them all together, so be prepared for more!
These brothers were my morning clients while it was still chilly with no sun. But they were great sports! And they win for best outfits – love their bow ties!
Several afternoon clients kept their slots, and by then the sun was out.
As the sun started getting lower in the sky, it was truly beautiful.
And by the end, the sun was so low, it created these looks:
