Professional Headshots | Naperville Photographer

Time for some more realtor headshots for Caton Commercial Realty.  I have had the pleasure of photographing some of their realtors and staff before, and now with new staff, it was time to add these.

Naperville Photographer, Elmhurst Photographer | Toddler

I met this little guy recently and fell in love with his white-blonde hair.  At 21 months, he was very much on the go while in the studio for his portrait session.  Even though he was on the go, he was very cooperative and full of smiles for me.  Of course, it helped that he and I spoke the same language – the language of raspberries.  LOL  I sing songs like The Itsy Bitsy Spider, clap my hands, play peek-a-boo, and blow raspberries in order to get little ones to look at me and smile.  It usually works – and thankfully worked with this little guy, too.

Naperville Family Photographer | Hinsdale Photographer |Love & Laughter

It was a beautiful day for this family session.  Well, beautiful except for one thing….mosquitoes!  Holy cow, we were eaten alive by the wee nasty things!  And while we were all being bitten, I felt so very sorry for this mom because the bites were swelling fiercely on her – and the mosquitoes seemed to love her face.  I told her not to worry, that I would take care of it in processing (which I did), but man, I felt bad for her.

On the other hand, their little girl had a blast exploring and adventuring with me.  She was full to bursting with giggles and smiles and playing.  Family portraits do not have to be boring – they can be lots of fun if the subjects are willing, and it was impossible not to have fun when this little girl was so full of life.  Can’t you just feel it when looking at her?

I love how much she laughed.  The way she crinkled up her face – just love it.

But sometimes, even silly, happy girls don’t want to follow directions or be near their mom and dad. LOL  I included this picture because it is just so classic for toddlers.  I was trying to get her to go stand by her parents when she went and sat as far away as she could. LOL

But then I played some hide and seek with her, and the smiles and fun were back.

Naperville Newborn Photographer, Downers Grove newborn photographer

This little guy was so tiny when I met him.  Just a wee little thing.  And absolutely perfect!  He was a beautiful, sleepy newborn baby for me – which I appreciated. LOL  He pretty much just chilled and ate and slept – just how it ideally should go.  Seriously – isn’t he gorgeous?  Of course, with such beautiful parents, it is hard for him not to be perfect.  You may recognize the parents from a recent maternity session I did over the summer.  i love watching families grow and change, and I look forward to watching this little baby also grow.

Welcome to the world, little Shaylan.  And congratulations to his happy parents!

This may be my newest favorite flooring.  I just love the worn look and faded colors.

Chicago Maternity Photographer, Naperville Maternity Photographer | Love

Sometimes maternity photography sessions are all about the belly.  Sometimes they are all about the mother-to-be.  And sometimes they are all about the couple.  The two becoming three.  The birth of a family. :)  So when I asked if she wanted to do mostly just her and a few of them both, she let it be known that pretty much everything should include them both.  That’s fine.  But after about five minutes with them, I understood the why.  These two are disgustingly, adorably, sickeningly, incredibly in love.  That sort of love that you really don’t see often in real life.  I bet they were a dream come true when they had their engagement pictures done because they couldn’t keep their hands off each other.  Seriously, sometimes it takes a lot of posing to get couples looking natural and good, but these two just fell into each other. LOL

I can’t wait to meet their little newborn baby when he arrives.  They were so much fun to photograph.  They made me laugh plenty.  Their baby is certainly going to be lucky to be raised within such a loving home.  It warms my heart.   But enough of all this sappiness, onto the pictures!
