Rachel and Jason have two canine children and of course they play a big part of their relationship. So we started our engagement session at the Hidden Lake County Forest Preserve with their dogs.
Earlier this summer, there were a lot of rain in Chicago and that resulted in a lot mosquitoes. During our engagement session, we were attacked by swamps of mosquitoes. So we decided to leave and hoped things would get better at our second stop, The Morton Arboretum. We were still optimistic even though there was a sign at the entrance that says "no refund due to too many mosquitoes." The good thing was that once we were inside, we barely saw anyone else at the arboretum. The bad thing was mosquitoes still win and we had to cut our engagement session short. Between shushing and swatting away the army of mosquitoes, we were able to capture some genuine moments.
I ended up with about 20 mosquito bites all over me but it was well worth it.
