Who was super fun to work with and is thinking about attending school for art! I know I said 5 days til your blog post, but had to share this one:) I also did a neat effect on it. I am sooo glad you brought some of your work for us to photograph. I will post more soon....Back again with a few more edits for you! The gallery will post this week!

Sneak Peek of the "H" Family!

It is so nice to meet new families! The "H" family has the cutest little boy, who was so fun! Mom likes candid, so we had one of those sessions that just rolled! From playing with sticks to climbing onto my chair, Little "P" was super cute, and I don't think he complained once! I love how the outfits matched the family shots, we could not and did not plan that:) I really enjoyed talking baseball with Mr. "H" as I have 2 sons who LOVE to play...Please enjoy the sneak peek, the gallery will post this week. These are some of my favorites!

Sneak Peek of "E"...celebrating 10!

Ms. "E" was a pleasure to work with, and is an age that I don't often get to photograph:) There is a special tradition in the family to have professional pictures taken at age 10. "E" loves sports, so we decided that an outdoor simple location would be perfect...I forgot how many different pictures you can get out of a single area...and was so happy when I saw our results! I love the "face" with the smile and eye closed cute look- Dad, this one's for you! Thank you for having me capture "E" for you.

Sneak Peek of Neuqua Valley High School Graduating Senior "S"!

Ms. "S" was so much fun to photograph! We had a fantastic day and great lighting the whole session! I am loving shooting in September, I think it is my new favorite month for pictures:) We started with some shots by the water, and then headed up to the open field to finish up...we were pleasantly surprised that a favorite spot of mine had purple flowers in bloom, the exact color to match "S"! Mom, we got the suitcase shot....several, so I think that will work this time around:) You have a beautiful daughter. Thank you again for having me capture these memories for you!

Sneak Peek of Baby "Z" Celebrating ONE!


I was so excited to see baby "Z"! just one year ago we did newborn pictures:) Z was in a tutu then...and I was happy to see that she is still super girly and was in ruffles for me again:) Urban settings are always a ton of fun, said for the wind we had, that caused our pink balloons to "Fly" away:) Z was a bit tired at the end, but loved the attention she was getting as people walked by! Mom and Dad are always so great...and so photogenic! The ones by the white door look like images you could buy on a set of notecards! Thank you for a great session. The gallery will post soon!

Sneak Peek of Mr. & Mrs. "L" celebrating 50 years! Naperville riverwalk

I knew from the minute that I read the client inquiry from "K" that I would love this couple. It was something like "Our children are making us take pictures for our 50th anniversary...." :) We had chosen a nice smaller park for our pictures, and had a beautiful day. I haven't photographed many Seniors in my career, and had so much fun. I learned a few secrets to a great marriage, and really enjoyed seeing them interact. I think the funniest thing is when I said " This is so nice, most elderly couples don't like having their picture taken...and Mrs. "L" promptly said "That would be us":) Apparently there is a grand daughter graduating who I may get to meet this Fall. Maybe after seeing our session she will come around! I hope that when my husband and I reach 50 years together, that we look as great as you, and have your spirit. The gallery will post tomorrow. Please enjoy the sneak peek and thank you again for a wonderful session.
