As high school seniors enter their final year, it’s a time to celebrate with more than standard yearbook photos.  For Julia, we elevated her experience with in-studio senior pictures that exude style, glamour and a touch of simplicity.   For a studio session, it allows us to create a fashion-inspired look; think Vogue with a blend of elegance.  We took a classic look and amplified with a monochromatic feel.  The emphasis and attention is guided towards Julia’s poses and accompanying expressions.

Senior year is a monumental time in a student's life, a culmination of years of hard work and the transition to a new chapter.  One of the most cherished traditions during this time is senior portrait photography. These photographs are not just simple snapshots; they are a celebration of growth, a representation of identity, and a glimpse into the promising future that lies ahead. And within this visual narrative, fashion plays a pivotal role. For our senior, Camille, her fashion is an extension of her personality, her canvas for self-expression. Just as a senior's interests, aspirations ..read more

Crystal Lake Veteran Acres Park Senior Pictures Photoshoot | Samantha

Samantha first came to the studio during late winter to discuss her wishes for senior pictures, and to get headshots taken for the high school yearbook.  My wife, Dawn, has been friends with Samantha’s mom and older sister for years.  They all met through the synchronized figure skating community that has been a large part of our family’s life for many years. My first impression of Samantha is she has a calming reservation about her.  She has a tendency to be on the quiet side, but when she throws her smile at you, you feel welcomed and connected. Samantha conveyed her want to ..read more

Give us a minute to allow us to introduce the newest Illinois State University (ISU) Redbird, Emma.  We have a soft spot in our heart for ISU as it is our alma mater.  Emma and her mom, Kerry came to the studio from a previous experience with us; providing dance portraits of Emma’s sister, Chloe with the Difference Dance Company (see original post here). See if you can pickout which one is Chloe. During our creative design, Emma conveyed the desire to have a downtown city vibe with a touch of nature.  Learning of Emma’s dance experiences and flare for fashion, we knew we could ..read more

Chicago Industrial Corridor Senior Pictures Photoshoot | Tess

A beautiful hidden gem. That’s what we think when we think of Tess. We first met Tess and her mom, Kelly, during our in-studio consultation. They were referred to our Chicago Senior Pictures Photography studio by a friend within the US Synchronized Skating community to which our family has been a member for the past decade. During our consultation, Tess was rather reserved with her requests and comments. It’s not unusual to meet with high school seniors whom are unsure to what they envision for their senior pictures ideas. It’s normal and the reason we go through our creative process to identi ..read more

Fremd, Buffalo Grove and Maine South High School Senior Pictures | 4 3 2 1

Four (4) best friends.  Three (3) high schools.  Two (2) cups of coffee (sorely underestimated).  One (1) day.  When was the last time you opened your mouth and inserted your foot?  (Figuratively speaking.)  That’s what happened when we became involved in the idea of taking senior pictures of four best friends at their respective high schools all in one day without any location scouting nor shoot plans.  We commonly refer to this as a photography walk-about; little to no planning.  Just go out, create and shoot pictures. It turned out to be one of those ..read more

For Makayla’s senior photoshoot, the goal was to provide an exclusive experience like no other as we created gorgeous imagery with an artist’s decorative touch.  During the studio consultation, Makayla and her Mom (Noelle) expressed the desire to have an epic photoshoot; staying away from the “usual”.  It was deemed that downtown Chicago would provide the creative elements we were after; energy, architectural textures, colors, arrays of light, and the vibes of city life.   As with our on-location photoshoot sessions, we invest many hours scouting the right location.  For th ..read more
