Genna | 2018 Senior | Energy and Creativity

Seniors give me energy…keep me young…make me laugh…challenge my creativity. I love everything about working with seniors, from looking through their wardrobe choices, to chatting as we walk, to capturing their personalities, to sitting with the senior looking through the photo gallery for the first time!

Genna’s session was no different on this beautiful fall day. We found life connections and laughed a lot. It’s a joy, at the end of the job, to hand off a final product of digitals and/or prints that you know will be treasured for years to come.

Lucy | 2018 Wheaton North Senior

Want a piece of advice as you prepare for a photo session? Be you! Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Don’t try to look like someone you aren’t. Don’t think you have to act any differently than you always act. Just be you…through and through. Easy! 🙂

You are beautiful!

This girl needs no words. What a fun senior photo session I had with Lucy. She brought ALL her personality 🙂

Wheaton North

P.S. Lucy, congratulations on being crowned Wheaton North’s Homecoming Queen. SO, so fun!! ♥

Maggie | 2017 Graduate | Outfit Inspiration

What you wear to your senior session is important, and deciding can be difficult! As you get ready, I recommend remembering to bring layers, which bring variety and depth to your outfit. You may also want to center your outfits around a color palette or theme. This doesn’t mean all of your outfits have to be blue! You want to have variety, but also make sure your photo set looks cohesive. Maggie did an especially good job with this, using several different colors but keeping them soft, tying her outfits together.

If you’re ever in doubt, there are plenty of resources to help you out… You can look through my portfolio for examples, and there is lots of outfit inspiration to be found on Pinterest. Be on the lookout for an upcoming post to go even more in depth on this topic!

One quick note: no matter what outfits you choose, be true to you!!

Without further ado, here is a snapshot of Maggie’s beautiful session. She rocked it!

Will | 2017 Graduate | Western Suburbs Photographer

There are many places in Chicago’s Western Suburbs to meet to have a photo session: parks, forest preserves, your own home, and downtown areas. But one of everyone’s favorite places, hands down, is

St. James Farm.

People are just drawn there, families and seniors. The fences, fields, buildings, paths, trees, wide open sky, and cool doors make it a no brainer for many people. So as a photographer, one of the creative challenges I’m faced with is how to make each session special. I have no interest in getting stuck in a rut. There are definitely spots at St. James which you will see me returning to. Some of those spots are the reason clients are drawn to St. James in the first place, so we really have to go there. But there are more than enough places to make it all your own. Just know that every time I take a walk in a repeat (for me) location, I look for new angles, new spots, hidden gems, and images that fit you. I embrace the challenge. Honestly, it’s part of what makes it fun for me. 🙂

Will’s senior photo shoot, out of six + years of sessions, is probably the session I laughed through the most. My laughter started early, and didn’t stop until I said goodbye. So. Much. Fun. Here’s a look at what we created…
