Naperville Senior Photographer, Downers Grove Senior Photographer | Beach Bum

This lovely lady here is getting ready to start her senior year at Naperville North High School. A laid back lifeguard, when we met for our consultation, I mentioned going into downtown Chicago and going to the beach, and she was all for it.  I totally see being on the beaches in California – to which she said that is her dream.  I think she would fit right in with her natural platinum blonde hair.  While I hate driving into the city, it was well worth it for these gorgeous early morning beach shots.  And her dress was absolutely perfect for it.  I love the ragged edges.

How gorgeous is this with the city in the background?  And if you look closely, you can see the big Navy Pier ferris wheel on the left.  You got to get in there very early in the morning – but it is worth it.

And of course, we had to get some pictures with the lifeguard stand.  This may be my favorite one.

I love this next picture with the boats.  It is just perfect.  Thankfully, no one minded us hanging out on them.

Elmhurst photographer

 

We had the second part of her session on a separate day in order to give her a different look.  This is more of her every day, casual look.  We went downtown Naperville, and she got to enjoy being in the spotlight while people commented and watched.  She cracked me up, and we enjoyed the gorgeous weather and dodging the other photographers out that day.  It was a busy evening for photographers, apparently.  And she wanted to be sure to get a picture with her awesome heart sun glasses.  Such a diva. LOL

I hadn’t seen this little guy since his newborn pictures, and now he is one year old!  My, how time flies.  He is an entirely different baby now, and one that is oh, so cute and sweet!  Seriously, he had me cracking up because every time I would just look at him and smile, he would bashfully turn into his shoulder and smile at me.  So stinking adorable!  He is a very easy going, sweet baby.  I hope he continues to be like this for the next time I see him.  He also isn’t fully walking, so he was content to just hang out wherever we put him, which makes my job SO much easier! LOL

Happy birthday, little Lucas.  You made my day.

We started off on one of my favorite bridges…and the bashful smiles began.

And I love the mosquito netting – all white and innocent.  And he had fun in it, too.

Hinsdale Photographer, Naperville Baby Photographer | Brothers

I have been photographing this family every six months for two years now.  At first, it was for their oldest son.  Then when he was turning one, they also had baby number two.  Now that baby number two has turned one year old, it will be weird not to see them as often!  I’ve so enjoyed watching these boys grow and develop.  Their oldest son has gone through a lot in his lifetime – foot surgeries to remove an extra toe, low muscle tone issues not allowing him to walk (yet), and now recently officially diagnosed with a rare chromosomal duplication that accompany developmental delays.  While he isn’t communicating, yet, I bet next time I see him, he will have improved with leaps and bounds to keep up with his little brother.  So this session was celebrating both the little one’s first birthday and the older brother’s second birthday.  So many smiles for me and such handsome guys!  I love their very blue eyes.

We started off with a new setup and a new floor, which I’m loving.

Then it was time for the little guy’s cake smash.  He loved it and enjoyed himself.  Half way through, we decided to let both boys in on the fun since it is both of their birthdays.  How cute are they?!

Naperville Photographer, Hinsdale Photographer | Sisters

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” ~Marion C. Garretty

I was looking forward to this session, knowing I was getting some older siblings.  Then I meet them in person at the session and was thrilled with their outfits.  They were totally perfect for our setting.  I couldn’t have picked out better clothing – each unique, but complimenting  each other without being too matchy.  At ages 16, 14, and 10, each girl was also unique with her own personality and role in the family.  We had the antisocial, quirky, introvert; the outgoing, social, tomboy; and the shy, sweet one.  I really had a blast photographing them…all except for all the gnats that were everywhere.  All this rain has really driven out all the bugs, and they were constantly swatting them away.  I would say, “Okay, quick, stop!”  They would all freeze, let me take the picture, then return to swatting them away.  LOL

Chicago Maternity Photographer, Naperville Maternity Photographer

The beauty of pregnancy, of growing a life within, is something so special.  Something that should be memorialized – and what better way than through a maternity photography session with Firefly Nights Photography.  I recommend having your maternity session between 32 and 34 weeks, so the belly is nice and round, but women aren’t too uncomfortable and swollen.  I’m always jealous of women who don’t have any stretch marks (not that they exist in my edited world, anyway), because I was torn to shreds by my own kids.;)

What is really unfair is when a woman looks this good during her fourth pregnancy!  And between the two of them, this will be baby number seven!  She looks amazing.  They wanted to celebrate their last and final baby with this portrait session. I can’t wait to meet the little girl when she arrives.

We started with the more artistic and dramatic maternity images.

I always love the lighting in these artistic images.  The human body while creating life is beautiful.

And then we switched to a more playful look with jeans and camisole.  I always like this look on everyone.

Then it was time for the father to join in for some pictures.

I love the difference in skin tones in this one.
