Girl, Boy, Family : Naperville Family Photographer

First off, soundtrack.  I think that all the swimmers in all the lanes are expressing this sentiment.  Congrats to the U.S. Men’s Swim Team for an astounding performance in the 800 m swim and a huge proud congratulations to the best Olympian of all time, Mr. Michael Phelps.  Wowza.

Anyway, I told you all I was in the mood for Nine Inch Nails and I think it’s like a craving and I just need to do it and move on.  It’s not true NIN but bonus for David Bowie’s involvement.  Always dug this tune…and I bet this song could be a great anthem for all those other swimmers yesterday, eh? 



Now for sneak peeks…

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of photographing the B family who travelled from the Naperville area for a Marmalade Urban session.  I had a blast photographing charming little Olivia and fell in love with sweet Jaimeson’s quiet disposition.  A huge thank you to their mom & dad who brought them out for a session in the quaint old town that I like to call my studio’s home.

    Beautiful Mare! This will sound silly but I just love your blues. I’m not generally a big blue fan, I’m more of a purple kinda girl but your the blues in your images just seem so put me in a peaceful mood.

    Beautiful work here. I love how your portraits are generally on the dark side – dark colors, vignettes, dramatic compositions and processing; yet the mood of the portraits is still happy, loving, adventurous, etc. Love your style!
