Day-in-the-life Family Photo Session at the Green City Market with the Ponzio’s
For their family photo session this year, the Ponzio’s wanted to do something a little different than the classic park pictures. A professional chef, Michael Sr. used to shop for ingredients at the Green City Market each week for fresh, local options to flavor his recipes, so when he heard Kimi and I planned to meet in Lincoln Park, he asked if we could stop there afterwards.
I loved the idea, so after snapping some fun candids of the kids at play, we walked down to the stalls and took in the sights and smells. It was so cute to see the boys examining the offerings. When we spotted a carnitas stand, we all agreed we had to stop. Yummm! It was definitely the best carnitas taco I’ve ever had, stuffed full of marinated pork, topped with shredded cabbage and drizzled with crema. My mouth is watering right now just remembering the flavor.
Kimi found her favorite fall arrangements–pumpkin tree bunches (yes, there is such a thing), Oliver went on sale for a minute for $5 dollars, before being snatched up quickly by his devoted father, and little Michael showed his strength, lifting butternut squash like a dumb bell. It was a perfect morning making new memories and enjoying our beautiful Fall.
This cutie pie…can’t get enough of those cheeks.
Love an affectionate Dad.
Chef in training.

Little Michael, determined to move this trailer.
