Firefly Nights Photography is an internationally award-winning portrait and commercial photography studio. We were originally created by owner/photographer, Megan Drane, to capture the magic of childhood – the laughter, the mischievousness, the beauty, and the joy. While we started off as a baby and young child photography company, we evolved and expanded our unique look to also include high school seniors and adults, as well. By capturing people’s true essence in combination with mastered lighting and experience, we create true pieces of art. Our goal is not to provide you with pictures that will be on your desk until the next milestone, but to provide art that can stand the test of time. Eventually, our style grew to capture an edgy look with athletes, as well.
Our commercial photography originated with people and portraits with products or for advertising purposes. However, now we also provide straight product photography, professional headshots, and advertising campaigns.
The other reason Megan created this business is to help outsiders see the wonderful gifts of joy special needs children bring to their families. (Please click on the SPECIAL NEEDS link for more information)
Firefly Nights Photography provides maternity, newborn, baby, child, senior, family, and athlete photography in Chicago and its suburbs, especially Naperville, Hinsdale, Wheaton, Plainfield, and Downers Grove. We also provide head shots and commercial photography. Really, we do everything except weddings. We even do amazing boudoir photography through our sister brand of Fiery Nights Boudoir. Located in downtown Naperville with a studio that is as unique as our work, we also provide on-location sessions.
Firefly Nights Photography is a licensed photographer and a registered member of Professional Photographers of America as well as National Association of Professional Child Photographers. We were named the 2011 Director’s Choice by Stories of Autism; the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2015 Best Photographer by Naperville Magazine; and 2014 Best Photographer by Glancer Magazine. We also won Best Image in the 2012 international NAPCP image competition in the high school senior category. We have been featured on Chicago’s ABC News and had articles published both locally and nationally. Our work can be seen in doctor’s offices, calendars, international magazines, national advertisements, catalogs, and countless homes.
