Chicago Naperville Newborn Photographer…Swigon Newborn Session

Newborn sessions are one of my favorites. I love getting the chance to see the babies only days after they were born!! Sweet little “S” slept like a champ throughout the entire shoot! Working with a heavy sleeper always makes it an even more enjoyable and easy experience.

Baby “S” is absolutely adorable! I love this little snuggly teddy bear!!

Spring has sprung in our studio! Besides the creamy tones to create a cozy image, the white tulips in the background put a spring in our step!

I can’t even take the cuteness!!!

Baby “S”s newborn session took place around the time of our duckling mini sessions!! We just HAD to incorporate the chicks into “S”s shoot. Between this beautiful kiddo and adorable little ducks, we almost died from cuteness overload.

Seriously??? So darn cute!

Looks like the “S” family has tons of wonderful shots from the newborn session to treasure forever.

We’re super thankful for the “S” family for trusting us with their newborn pictures!!

What a sweet and perfectly sleeping baby! It was a delight to photograph darling little baby “D” at her newborn session. She looks so cozy all swaddled up!!! Look at this little angel…

Documenting your newborn is timeless and will give you a lifetime of enjoyment because this time of their life just flies by!! Why not document this super sweet time so you never forget it!

Baby “D” was surrounded by all of the people who care so much about her- she already has an amazing support system!!

I can’t get over this adorable little bonnet!

If you are booking a newborn session soon, make sure to think about whether you want you and your significant other in some of the images, other siblings, or even the grandparents. It gives the photos even more meaning to cherish about!!

As always, thank you to the “I” family for trusting us with your little sweetheart, “D.”

Chicago Naperville Tween Photographer…Best Friends Photo Shoot

If you’re not sure what to do for your tween or teen’s next birthday, think “FRIENDS PHOTO SHOOT”!! What a great way to celebrate this time in their lives. There’s no better way to celebrate friends than to document it through photography.

Love this image!! The girls were just bursting with excitement throughout the entire shoot. Ellsworth girls unite!

This is such an important age to photograph your kids. Most of us hold off having our children’s pictures taken during the junior high and early high school years. I love photographing my cute girls at this perfect age. Look at this beautiful fresh face! It doesn’t get any better than that.

Each tween girl incorporated her personal style into the shoot. Super unique!!

The wind was perfect for this shoot in the urban part of downtown Naperville.

Free spirits! I love everything about this. What beautiful green eyes!

Chicago Naperville High School Senior Photographer…Miss “M” Shines Bright

I can’t believe it’s already May!! This means only one thing… graduation month!!! I’m so excited for what’s in store for the futures of my amazing Class of 2015 Senior Ambassadors!

Let me introduce Miss “M” to the blog. She is our stunning Class of 2015 Senior Ambassador from Naperville North High School!!

Ms. “M” has been super involved during her time at NNHS. She’s going to miss all of the clubs and the groups she’s been a part of throughout the last four years.

I can’t help but smile as I look through “M”s shots from her stylized senior session. Future career in modeling???

The unique theme for our Class of 2015 shoot was early 1970’s. Everyone dressed up like hippies!! It was super fun for everyone!!! “M”s favorite part of the Senior Ambassador shoot was the cute bus and the VW bug!

There’s no way I could have guessed “M”s most interesting fact about her. She genuinely told us, “This summer I will travel halfway around the world to work with formerly abused, abandoned and neglected children who lived on the streets in the Philippines. I have watched many of these kids grow up – as this is my 5th trip. They are all precious and I love spending time with them!” WAY cool- Miss “M” has a huge heart!!!

Ms. “M”s favorite spiritual quote comes from Psalm 13:5 (NIV), “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.”

“M” plans to head to college in the fall to study Marketing and Photography after graduating from NNHS this month!!

Wishing you the best summer ever, “M”! Good luck with your studies this fall!

“Without struggle, there is no strength.” -Anonymous. This is a favorite quote from Miss “M,” our lovely Class of 2015 Senior Ambassador from Montini!

During her time at Montini, “M” is a proud captain of the varsity cheerleading team! She has been cheering since the second grade!! Way to go, “M”!

The turnout for “M”s stylized senior shoot was just amazing. What better time to enjoy nature than in the hot summer?? I can’t get enough of how beautiful the green colors turned out in “M”s photos. Take a look!!!

The one part “M” will miss most about her high school is being in a very small school and being able to know everybody there.

Ms. “M” had a blast at our early 1970’s hippie-themed Senior Ambassador shoot!!! I wonder what her absolute favorite part of the shoot was… “It had to be getting my hair and makeup done because let’s be honest, that’s the best part for a girl wherever we’re going; and then of course all the really nice girls I met,” she spilled.

I love my senior sessions, especially with seniors who take advantage of our phenomenal hair and makeup artist here at our studio!!! Every single client who added this service has had an even more incredible experience. Getting all dolled up and pampered to take senior pictures??? Yes please!!!

Miss “M” loves spending time with friends and family, so she’s planning to try and stay close to home.

After graduating from Montini next month, “M” is planning to go to COD for 2 years to get some preliminary classes out of the way. After that, she’s looking to go to either the University of Illinois or Roosevelt University in Chicago.

I wish her the best of luck!!
