Kody and Nat in Millennium Park

Fun fact: I was born and raised in Chicago. Every time I came back to visit throughout college, I never felt truly home until I went to Millennium Park. I’m moving to Colorado tomorrow but before I moved away for good, I just had to have a photo shoot there.

Kody and I met at Jacob’s Pillow where he was a Contemporary Program participant and I was the Photography Intern. We did a little photo session with Christine while we were there, which was a lot of fun. He lives in Chicago and is a dancer with DanceWorks Chicago so we decided to do a dance photo shoot on our home turf.

He brought his boyfriend Nat, who dances in the Joffrey Studio Company and the three of us had a blast.

Some of my favorite buildings are in the background of the image below and I love how Nat and Kody became part of the skyline for this shot.
