Sneak peek of Little "A" turning 1! Cake smash:)

| 0 comments
Little "A" is a tiny one year old, with the cutest smile! We set up for a cake smash and she was quite a little lady. Candle, hmmmm, then a bit of frosting, then those flat pick dots- yum! Mom had to help her taste the actual cake- it was clear the frosting was the favorite! After we were all finished smashing, we changed into a cream and pink adorable dress, and with the help of a pink chair and fluffy poodle were able to capture some adorable smiles! Mom and Grandma thank you for helping keep "A" happy! Enjoy the sneak peek, the gallery will post very soon~!

Sneak Peek of Mr. "E" Naperville

| 0 comments
Mr. "E" is an aspiring model/actor who has this wonderful smile that is very unique. I kept telling him he has this thing with his eyebrows- which by the way truly are fantastic! So much expression! I have no doubt that he will do great and was thrilled that I was able to get some head shots and portfolio shots for him! I cant wait to  hear his results! "E" I will post your gallery very soon, and had a really hard time keeping our image count down. Great work.

Sneak Peek of Newborn Baby "C"!

| 0 comments
Introducing baby "C"!  "C" is the 4th baby girl in the family, and boy are these girls beautiful. Mom always has them dressed to the nines and is so great at coordinating their outfits:) We had a tall order with newborn, Sisters, family, and a 3 year old birthday pic to capture...along with a mailbox vintage shot...I was a bit skeptical that we would get everything in. Much to our surprise baby "C" was wonderful  and slept the entire session! I had a "plan" which for those of you know me included a start to finish idea of our flow:) However my creative side took over as always and we shot our entire session in the garden...which was beautiful and had great light!

 I have only edited one shot from our session, so I am sharing this now...It will be a few days before I add to the blog...cant wait to see what else we captured. Dad was a trooper, with moving props, furniture, bringing water and holding kiddos! Thank you so much Mr. "P" we could not have captured everything without you!

Sneak peek of Newborn Baby "M"!

| 0 comments
Introducing newborn baby "M"! Baby "M" has a bit of reddish brown hair, blue eyes, beautiful skin, and a great sleepy smile. Sometimes newborns can be fussy for these sessions, but not this time:) Mom wanted soft pictures, and some with big sister "J".....when we did these Ms. "J" was a bit shy at first, but once she saw baby taking pictures under the tent:) she was fantastic, I love the sweet looks and sweet kisses we captured! One shot we did for Dad was with a baseball and mitt. These  are priceless. I just finished a few and will add a few more to this post in the next couple of days!

Photographs of Nocturne Video!

| 0 comments
I had an amazing experience working with Michele McGovern and Dave Apps who just filmed a video for their new song Nocturne. My daughter was asked to be a child dancer in the video, and of course I could not resist taking pictures for them while there. The work that went into this production was...amazing the crew and dancers and staff all worked so hard to pull this together. I cannot wait until the video is released!  It was very cool to be able to shoot something like this. I am so proud of my daughter who hung in there through the wee hours of filming and did an awesome job working with the professional dancers and director! I am posting a few that I have finished and will share more as I go through them!

Sneak Peek of the "D" family!

| 0 comments
The "D" family was a referral from one of my very first clients....I love meeting new families, and also shooting in new locations. We met at a very quaint garden in Wheaton, nestled back in a neighborhood. The setting was small and beautiful. I really loved the trees and fountain. All 4 kids did great. a few quirky "I am not so sure about this" smiles at the very start, but they truly warmed up quick and were super fun. I really liked how they all got along, any time I needed a giggle master I had a willing sibling! Mom and Dad were fabulous and sooo laid back, maybe it is something about having 4 kids, maybe not, but I can say that I've met several families lately with 4 kids, and these parents totally get it. Chaos, quiet, changing it up, they all roll with the punches. Enjoy the sneak peek, these are some of my favorites!
