I need to take a minute and rave about this senior session.  Eric was an amazing subject and his senior session was perfect.  This high school senior could easily be a model that you see in magazines.  He did most of the work and took interest in posing himself.  He was a godsend.  His senior session was done at sunset and the location we used was perfect for him and his personality.  Senior sessions are always an important moment in any high-schoolers life.  I love how today’s senior gets to have their own senior sessions and do not have to pose for those corny school photos in front of my backdrop that I had to go through. SO AWKWARD!  Senior sessions are probably my second favorite sessions to shoot behind newborns.  Eric was so fun to shoot and easy to work with.  I dare to say he was better at posing and more photogenic at some points that some of my female senior subjects.  Eric also dabbles in photography so it was fun to show him some of my tricks.  I am always open to sharing my talent and encouraging young photographers out there as well.  Check out the photos below to see how much fun Eric and I both had during his senior session.  And check out how we incorporated his love, his car. Now is it a great time to start booking senior photos so we can schedule around the spring colors and we can get creative with your senior’s personality and preferences.  Call or email now!

Vaso’s Maternity Shoot was hands down one of the most artistic photo shoots I have ever done.  Vaso has been one of my most repeat customers and also one of my biggest referral clients.  I have received so many referrals from her and it makes me smile anytime I receive a new client because of her.  She has become more of a friend than a client over the past five years.  So when she called me to tell me she was pregnant with her fourth I knew we had to capture some really cool maternity shots.  Vaso has always been a fun subject to photograph.  She is always up for something new and I know I can always count on capturing some great images. Vaso’s Maternity Shoot was exhilarating, shooting a barely dressed mamma to be in the snow was so fun.  I always made sure to have an assistant (Vaso’s daughter) near by with a coat to keep mommy safe during her maternity shoot.  We captured these breathtaking images at and in her home and I was able to provide some great memories for her and her family.  Did I mention that she is having a girl? Four pregnancies, four girls!  God Bless Dad who was very excited to be welcoming another girl.

Maternity Sessions are always fun to photograph.  Maternity Sessions with Brent and Amanda, two very beautiful people is even more fun.  Brent and Amanda mean so much to our family so when they were blessed with having a baby they reached out to me to help with capturing maternity photos.  I was over the moon that they asked and my mind started racing right away with what I could do with them.  Amanda is always glowing and pregnancy has done her right.  She was especially beautiful this day and the photos show that.  Brent, handsome as ever, was so amazing with Amanda and so protective of her and their bundle of joy.  These two came up all the way from Oklahoma to do these photos and I was not going to disappoint them.  Their wishes were my command. The day was a little windy and on the cooler side but Amanda was a trooper and posed so perfectly for me.  Maternity Sessions allow me to connect with the parents before the birth and also allows me to learn from them as to what works for them and what doesn’t.  A huge thank you to my subjects for allowing me to share with them during this maternity session.  Check out the photos below and I dare you to pick just one favorite.  I doubt you can! Till’ next time!

There is never a bad time to take senior photos.  A teenager’s senior year is one of the most important years of their life and those yearbook photos can either cap their year off right or spell disaster for a teen for years to come. When I photography a senior I make sure they get the best photos possible. Danielle is such an amazing woman who does so much.  She has been my daughter’s cheer leading Jr coach for two years now and she has a connection with my daughter that I appreciate so much.  When Danielle came to me and shared her ideas with me I was so excited to capture her concepts.  Danielle’s Senior Photos are some of my favorites to share with potential clients because it shows how my main objective with each session is to make the client happy and heard.  This girl is so beautiful, tall, funny and adventurous, I mean who else gets on their wake board in the lake in a beautiful dress for that one shot they want.  Her smile was mesmerizing and her laugh was contagious.  What made the senior photos flow really well was that mom and sister came along to help with wardrobe changes, hair and makeup touch up which I thought was so thoughtful and smart.  That is something I have suggested to other clients as well since these senior photos.  I want to thank Danielle, her mother and sister for a great experience and for helping me do what I love to do.  Till next time!

Newborn Photography is my favorite. I had the pleasure of photographing Baby Graham this past week for a newborn mini session.  Once we started shooting at my new studio in Barrington it was clear that baby Graham was alert, awake and ready for the camera.  Generally I tell my clients with newborns that I would prefer a sleepy baby so I can form and pose the newborns easier but baby Graham had other plans in mind.  We still got some great newborn shots and I am so happy with how the mini session turned out.  More importantly I am in the process of changing my photography style and my newborn photography and if you look at the session photos below you will notice that I am going for a more natural and neutral look.  It is the trend in newborn photography and my new studio in Barrington is allowing to be more creative and flexible.  There are some great setups for me to grab some amazing photos as evident here with Baby Graham.  He was so photogenic and I enjoyed hanging out in the studio with him and his amazing parents.  If you are located in the NW suburbs please feel free to look me up and book a session at my studio. Stay tuned for all the fun sessions I have been blessed to have in the past few weeks.  Till next time…

A downtown St Charles photo session was the perfect place to take pictures of these girls and their mom.  Julie and her girls have been clients of mine for three years now and they are so fun and easy going to photograph.  The photos below  speak for themselves.  When Julie contacted me about this session I couldn’t think of a better place than St Charles for a fun urban photo session of her and her girls.  Look at those girls and their smiles.  They actually like each other and you can see that in the photos, (LOL).  St Charles lends itself well to a family session because of its old buildings and vintage looks.  The brick in some of these photos also plays well for a session.  It was a beautiful fall day and the girls along with Julie picked the perfect outfits to work with the ambiance of St Charles.  These girl have been fun to watch grow up through my lens and I am so honored to be a part of their lives.  My goal with every photo shoot is to get to know my clients and become someone they can trust and feel comfortable around.  If my clients feel that way then my job becomes so much easier.  If you would like to book a St Charles photo session now is the time to book.  Spring is upon us and colors will start to explode all around us.   Urban photos play well for a St Charles photo session because of all the little hidden gems throughout the town.

Fresh 48 sessions. Nothing brings me more joy in photography than being allowed to photograph a newborn two days new. To be one of the first people to meet a new addition to a family is always an honor that I take seriously. That new baby smell and those little fingers and toes give me goosebumps every time I shoot a Fresh 48 session. Leila was so perfect for our newborn Fresh 48 shoot and I couldn’t ask for a better model. Two days new and sleepy as can be Leila allowed me to capture some really great photos of her in all her perfection. Its always such a pleasure to meet a family before their scheduled session. Probably relieves some nerves on the parents part as well as my own:) What can I say but Leila is a complete doll! So beautiful, so sweet! Loved all her little details. Congratulations to Leila’s family and I am so honored to photograph her Fresh 48. Thank you! Feel free to contact me with any questions about Fresh 48 sessions. Planning for them takes a little bit of time so the sooner you contact me the better.

A baby girl…
one of the most beautiful miracles in life,
one of the greatest joys we can ever know,
and one of the reasons why
there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness
in your world today.

I love fall family photos!  The colors, the leaves, the trees all make it the perfect surroundings for a family session around sunset.  I love taking photos just right before sunset so I can take advantage of that fading sun light in the background.  The Riddles were so laid back which made the session so relaxing and allowed me to capture some great shots of the kids as well as the parents.  The Riddles picked the perfect outfits for fall family photos.  When doing fall family photos outfits are just as important to the photo shoot as much as the subjects and weather.  Check out some of the images below to see what I am talking about. Little accessories like scarves and jewelry can enhance an outfit so much.  When the Riddles reached out to me to book a session I knew exactly where I wanted to shoot and this location offered so many awesome opportunities for me to do single shots of the kids with all the great photographic backdrops.  These kids were so easy to work with and those smiles are to die for.  With spring around the corner I plan on utilizing this location again for the blooming of all the flowers and their colors which will lend perfectly to any shot.  The Riddles shared with me that they had not taken any family photos aside from event photos and throughout the editing process i knew that they would appreciate these photos so much so i put a lot of work into them.  Take a look below at this beautiful family that I had the privilege of photographing! A big thank you to the Riddles!

Dupage County Il Engagement Photographer

Engagement Sessions are always so much fun!

I cannot tell you how much fun I had photographing two of my closest friends, Ned and Sunita’s Engagement Session was amazing.  The location and the ideas that we used for this photoshoot are some of my favorite to date.  Warning: this just may be my longest blog post ever! There were way to many beautiful images to choose from.  Take a look and see the places we found and the fun we had on such a perfect autumn day. Waterfalls, trails, canoes and one of the cutest little girls, Meelah, make for a beautiful setting.  From the moment I saw their smiles I knew we would be in for a fun and easy going session.  Engagement sessions make me feel so special.  For a couple to allow me to photograph their announcement is an honor in itself but I have known these three special people for close to four years and they asked me to come up with an engagement session that spoke to their interests and personalities.  It was fun scouting out areas around Bartlett, Schaumburg, St Charles and Elgin, IL and discovering some gems along the way.  When I meet a future bride and groom I try to get to know them and who they are and what they love.  Only then can someone capture a couple in their natural environament where they feel most comfortable and happy.  Ned and Sunita did just that from the first shot. Take a look at the gallery below and if you are anything like me you will have just as much of a difficult time picking your favorite as did Ned and Sunita..

Leila’s newborn session was so precious.  New parents are always fun to interact with and even better to photograph.  Leila’s newborn session was like something out of a book.  She was so precious and perfect for our session.  Her parents were so loving and so protective of her.  The smiles that were plastered on their faces from the moment I saw them that day to the moment they left were perfect.  Leila’s newborn session even had another member of the family join in.  Griswald, the family dog, was so protective of Leila during Leila’s newborn session and Leila seem to enjoy Griswald’s company.  Take a look at the photos to see how photogenic Griswald was along Leila and her parents.  It also helped that Leila was very sleepy throughout her newborn session.  It is so much easier for my subject to be as sleepy as possible so I can pose them much easier. I love shooting newborns and I had to privelege of captruing Leila’s Fresh 48 session as well.  My goal always is to please my clients not only so they can return as clients but that they are happy and satisfied with my work.  I am so happy for Leila and her parents and Griswald as well.

I never knew I could love so much,
until the day I felt your touch.

I softly kissed your tiny cheek,
and from under your lashes I saw you peek.

Your beautiful eyes so small and blue,
my sweet little baby just brand new.

I cannot wait to watch you grow,
from your little head to your tiny toes.

My daughter, my love, my little joy,
my little angel, my baby doll toy.

I promise to love you with all my heart,
I’m here for you from the very start.

I’ll comfort you when you cry,
I’ll answer true when you ask me, Why?

While you grow, be sweet and kind,
and show all others how much you shine.

Dupage County Il Maternity Photographer

What can I say about maternity sessions that you don’t already know? Walsh Maternity Session is a session I fell in love with it the moment I looked through my lens and saw the beauty I was capturing of the Walsh family and their new bundle of joy. Maternity sessions are always a creative wonder-world for me. The possibilities are endless as to what you can do during a maternity session. These women that have been carrying their babies for seven months are just glowing and the lens definitely captures their glow and essence. Christa was amazing. I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful mommy to photograph. She was just enjoying being in front of the camera and I enjoyed making her feel beautiful. To capture images of your pregnancy is always a gift that I love providing to my mommy’s to be. Christa and I are friends that attend the same church and she has always been an amazing woman in our community. She is a youth pastor’s wife who embodies what being motherly is about. She has been a light for my teenage daughter and when she reached out to me to photograph her for a maternity session I jumped for joy. I was excited to reward her for being the beauty that she is and for being a mother to so many beautiful teenagers in our church. These photos turned out better than I thought and I was so excited to show her and her husband the finished product.

Baby Pederson decided to give me a run for my money! Patience is a virtue that all photographers need to be possess. Baby Pedeson tested my patience the first time and so the second time around I was ready for him. As a photogrpaher you will never have perfect photoshoots. There is always something that goes wrong or throws a kink in your plan. You have to adapt and be quick on your toes. Baby Pederson, cuteness overload, was not very sleepy during his first session so we rescheduled and he did much better the second time around. The Pedersons’ are a beautiful family and they are also a fun and active family as well. We decided we had to do a picture of him on his daddy’s motorcycle. Nothing screams daddy’s boy like having him ride Dad’s Harley Davidson within the first weeks of his life. Baby Pederson’s big brother had the pleasure of being the first to take pictures on daddy’s motorcycle. He was such a big handsome boy, and they are such a good looking family! I look forward to watching him and his brother grow:)

I am always open to doing different types of shots for families, newborns, little children so please contact with any ideas you would like for your personal family photography/newborn photography. I love what I do and I want you to love what I do as well.

The thing I love most about photography is watching families grow. I met Carlos and Monica through a bridal expo I did several years ago. I photographed their engagement session, Noah’s newborn photos, his 1 year photos, Christmas photos and now his two year photos. Its truly an honor for me to be given the gift of watching families grow. He didn’t want to sit still for his session so I got a good cardio work out in and still ended up with some amazing images.

Hannah’s Senior Session reminded me of times past. Seniors! Seniors! Seniors! I remember my senior year like it was yesterday and the one thing I do not remember is having an opportunity to have a senior session. It would have been great to have one of the most important years of my life chronicled with a senior session. Hannah allowed me to live vicariously through her. The smile that this senior exhibited during her senior session invigorated me as a photographer. I found myself getting lost in the shoot itself through my lens. She was a great sport and she allowed me to capture shots of her in different elements. When she showed up for her Senior Session I just knew that we were going to have fun. She picked out some great outfits to change into throughout the shoot. Big shout out to her mother and sister for coming along and providing some help with wardrobe changes and also providing some comical relief to break Hannah down a bit so I could capture the genuine woman that she is. Hannah is such a beautiful girl and she was such a beautiful model for me on this day. I had so much fun photographing Hannah’s senior session. She is such a beautiful girl and was so easy to work with. Her signature pose is the hand on her hips and she rocked it well. Seniors are so much fun! Best wishes at college Hannah. Your are an amazing girl and I know God has big plans for your life!

Hannah’s Senior Session reminded me that you can never book too early for one of these. Please reach out and let’s book your senior’s session today so that they too can remember such an important and vital time in their lives. I am open to photographing your senior in any environment that speaks to their personality and demeanor.
