Kara | Photoshoot

Hey everyone, finally I've had the chance to blog again! And I'm VERY excited to share these particular photos with you. This is Kara, my sweet and lovable best friend. The two of us were apart for almost 7 months, one reason being because we live in two different states and the other because Kara spent 4 months overseas, doing ministry in Israel and London. We were counting down the days until we'd be able to see each other... finally it came! One of the days we had here in Chicago, we visited Cantigny Park - a beautiful park with a memorial, museum, historical house, and more. I didn't expect to be doing an official photoshoot of her that day, but it turns out the lighting was just beautiful and I couldn't resist! 
I love Kara's smile and the way she just lights up a room with her energy and wit. She also is quite good at working the camera. ;) Needless to say its a pretty easy job capturing her best moments. I was blessed to be able to have this day with a friend, and am excited to finally share these photos that have been hiding in my computer for two weeks. Yay! Enjoy.

Cantigny Park is filled with beautiful spots and fun things to see. One of my favorite features is the military tanks that are scattered across the park in one particular area. It was one of my favorite things to do growing up, climbing on the tank, hanging from the cannon, and pretending to "get the bad guys" with all my siblings and cousins and friends. Kara got a little piece of my childhood and tried it out for herself:

She got it down! Lastly, we stumbled on the pretty little waterfall you see in the last photo I posted of her above. It was fun dangling our feet in the water and getting some sweet photos of it. The water looked amazing, blue and clear and bubbly. Just thought I'd share these extra goodies with you cause I personally thought they were pretty cool. ;)


  1. Nice pix, Charity. You've captured the calmer side of Kara. Looking forward to the crazier side, too!

  2. I like the second one, the horizontal one on the staircase. It's like it's opened up around her.


I LOVE feedback!
Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. :)
