Nikki | Lockport Township HS Senior Portrait Photographer

Nikki is another local photographer and really great friend of mine! We both obsess over all things photography related and this day was just as any other we've had together but this time, Nikki got herself in front of the camera for her very own Senior Portraits! I know first hand as a photographer that the times on the other side of the camera can be a little awkward and we forget everything we tell our clients to do. Nikki totally blew me away and looks flawless!

We had to deal with some drizzle for the first half of our shoot but we didn't let that stop us. We found some great new locations (some a bit creepy!) and had a blast taking these photos. It's really beginning to feel and look like Fall and I am LOVING it! Only to get better! :) Enjoy this preview of Nikki's fab Senior Portraits!

Steph | Naperville North High Senior Portrait Photographer

I really wanted to go back and re-live one of my favorite sessions I've had this past Summer. It's been four days since my surgery and I am already itching to get back behind the camera, pronto! I'm hoping going back through and editing some of my previous sessions will help ease my creativity for a bit :) For those that don't know, I had to have my Gallbladder removed on Friday afternoon and I'm in the process of recovering, very well might I add! I'm getting back into things late next week with some fantastic sessions coming your way.

For now, enjoy Steph's Senior Portrait Session taken just a few weeks back on Labor Day! The city was practically empty, and we had the most gorgeous day you could imagine. I was so glad to venture back to these two locations which are a bit out of the way from where I live, but completely worth it. This lovely lady brought it for her session. From the second I had my camera out, she completely let her guard down and trusted me with everything I asked her to do and did it flawlessly! By the end of her shoot, as you will see, she totally blows me away with how effortless it was for her to be so graceful and soft in her photos. I just love it!
