My summer began with a trip back to Chicago for my niece’s First Communion. I don’t get a chance to go back home as often as I’d like, but when I do it’s always great to visit with family and friends. It’s especially great to be able to attend a very special day like a First Communion. My niece’s communion was at the same church where I had my first communion, St John of the Cross in Western Springs. Following mass we had a delicious lunch at LaGrange Country Club. Here are some portraits we captured on her special day!
