Prom Fashion Show - Joliet

Had a AWESOME time photographing the Prom Fashion Show in Joliet for Guardian Angel's Prom 'N' Aide event with the Joliet Library Teens program. Such a great turnout with girls rocking the runway from several local high schools including Plainfield, Joliet, Bolingbrook, and even Wilmington. It was a total blast and got to meet some super cool people and help support a great cause! Well done to everyone involved!!! And great job showcasing those amazing Prom dresses! So fun!!!

Corporate Photography-Recycling Today Magazine

Had the privilege to make it down to Elwood not too long ago to create a corporate portrait of Cal for the cover and inside feature for Recycling Today Magazine. Even had the chance to learn a few things about the business behind Resource management Companies in the process... quite interesting. Thanks Cal!

Prom Dresses-Shorewood-Joliet Senior Pictures

Well the Prom season is officially upon us and stunning Prom dresses can be seen all over Shorewood, Minooka and the surrounding communities. I had the pleasure of stopping into Posh Style Boutique over in Shorewood to see the enormous selection of Prom dresses they have on hand and was amazed at not only how many beautiful gowns were on display but the great pricing and accessories as well! 

You MUST visit Posh if Prom is in your future - or any other occasion for that matter! They have it all -  new, used, accessories and more. And if you need help Karen is more than happy to lend a hand!

Family-Kids Photos - Autism Awareness

Recently I was called to assist on a pretty sweet project which helps to promote the awareness of autism through portraits and a short story. Pretty cool concept. Opened my eyes. A portrait photographer is paired with a local family and this happens all across the country.

I myself was matched up with a pretty awesome little dude from Joliet who was about the age of my oldest girl. Fun stuff. Gavin loves his games and You Tube... Evan Tube to be exact - and he didn't waste a second to tell me all about it either... or his new LEGO Jedi game :)  And not to mention he was the perfect little subject to photograph. Thanks Gavin! Stay awesome!

Downers Grove Fall Family Pictures

Family pictures and even wedding photography in the Fall season are very popular and with the leaves putting on their final show in the Joliet and Downers Grove area we managed to make it out with this energetic family before time ran out on us.

It's not only awesome working with the same families over and over to capture their memories and create priceless family heirlooms but when the privilege to do the same goes out their family and friends I can't say enough.

I had a total blast "playing" with this little dude and watching him toddle around in his little cap. His smile can light up the room... as you can see : )
