If I could sum up February in Illinois in photos, this set of images is exactly what I would come up with. Illinois weather in general is CRAY-usually we have close to a foot of snow around this time with negative temps, but last week we got blessed with 60 degree days! Although I am quite concerned about global warming, I will admit that we took full advantage of it this warm afternoon! (Yes this is my sister and yes she is gorgeous! She got all the good genes! hehe!) 

Since we are on the topic, let's talk about weather. Clients usually get hesitant or will want to reschedule if the sun isn't out the day of their session. BUT if I am going to be completely honest with you guys, as much as I ADORE back lit, beautiful, sunset images-overcast days have a special place in my heart too. Really! There are no harsh shadows; everything is much softer. There is a certain mood to overcast days that is just my favorite and I wanted to share the beauty that can be found in the more gloomier of days too. I hope you enjoy this set as much as I enjoyed shooting it!
