Gorgeous sneak peek of parents to be R & M, Naperville

I think this post alone should curb any fears that maternity pictures are or are not beautiful. Dr. "R" and Mom to be "M"  are expecting their first baby in October, and wanted a lifestyle maternity session in their home. After finding beautiful light in the front room and of course rearranging some furniture (I don't think "Dad"  planned to move so many things for me-thank you:) We got to work, and got some truly amazing pictures. We then headed upstairs to take some more intimate window shots, that truly look like art. I cannot wait to get some edited and posted so you can see these. One of the things I love so much about what I do is getting home from a session and seeing amazing pictures. There are so many WOW shots:). Thank you for being so comfortable and artistic during the session.

I cannot wait to photograph your baby girl when she arrives, and to show you more! Here is one that I have finished...Ill be adding more this weekend...
Please feel free to share the post with family and friends. Carol

How to Book a Fall Session for 2012!


ONE ROCK! Urban Cake Smash, Naperville!

Her shirt says ONE ROCK, with a short sassy tutu, and adorable blue eyes and blond hair. Yes, she ROCKED her session. When I first spoke with Mom about a 1 year cake smash  I had assumed we were going to do a traditional indoor session, and was pleasantly surprised the we were going urban. I think everyone knows I have a passion for the Urban environment, said for Naperville quick cleaning up any graffiti before we can ever photograph it, there are a ton of cool urban photo spots:)

Little Ms. "C"'s big sisters came too, and were super cute and a bit sassy! I think whoever got to hold the baby smiled the most!  After giving Ms. "C" some time to smile and get those clean shots, we went onto the cake! She literally sat, and ate it, right outside, as it this were what every one should just do:) Will Eat Cake-anywhere, we could sell tee shirts if we tried! Mom and Dad were so patient and easy to work with...I sooo loved the feather on the hat at the end. I want to thank Mom and Dad for being so patient while I got my PC back up and running, and for making quick decisions on the birthday cards...WHEW I can relax now, and get you what you need. Thank you again, Ill let you know when the images are all posted. Oh, and in case I forgot to mention it your girls are BEAUTIFUL.

Sneak Peek of High Shool Senior "K" class of 2013!

I've always wanted to do a workshop where I can shoot professional models, just for fun...Ms. "K" has satisfied that! From her hat to her boots, Ms. "K" was truly comfortable in front of the camera and exuded so much confidence, I have no doubt that she will do awesome in whatever she chooses to do after high school. We used the settee to capture some truly vintage looks, cant wait to play with my art finishes and these later:) Aside from a very brief rain delay, we had a blast. If only the water pump would have provided us with some splash shots...maybe next time! Thank you again for a fantastic session. I am looking forward to meeting your younger sisters in the future. Seriously, you are very creative and have a gift at posing and communicating..I wish you the best!

Sneak Peek of Mrs. "A"!

Mrs."A" is a professional Flute player and had contacted me to take some photos for her upcoming website! Although I had not photographed an instrument before, we had great fun and got some amazing shots. I love the close up of you playing! I got to hear her play and the music is beautiful! These are some of my favorites, I am still working through the edits and will email you when the gallery is ready!
