Being able to be a Naperville senior photographer is one of my favorite things because I get to be more creative usually. When a senior is up for anything, I admit, I get all a flutter. LOL And when that senior is gorgeous, well…. awesomness arises. Now this lovely girl is going to be a Naperville North High School senior for class of 2018. When we had our in-person consultation, we decided an two different looks: urban and edgy for the first, then fields and sun and girly for the second.
She used my hair and makeup team to finalize her look on the day of our outing – and she looked awesome!
This was a new location for me, and I LOVED it! So if you are looking for a true urban location, I got you covered. And all without going into downtown Chicago.
She could really rock the serious look.
Then we walked just a ways and came across this amazing red door. I mean, how awesome is this? And the door is small – which begs to wonder where in the world it opens to??
Then this next part of her session was my doing. I had an idea, asked if she was up for it, and she agreed. Granted, these are something else – magazine images, if you will. And I utterly love the contrast of the flowy femininity against the urban harsh environment. But the colors all harmonize together, and she looks like a goddess. This is actually a maternity outfit I have and just pinned it to fit her.
Ok, so remember that was all part one of her session. Part two was an outfit change, along with different hair and makeup and location. I knew where I wanted to take her – a very large open field. We had to cross busy traffic, me lugging my large light. LOL But being a Naperville senior photographer, I go where we need to go for the perfect pictures. And it was well worth it, don’t you think?
I asked her to pick one of the little daisies. She did and then put it at her nose, and I quickly clicked and was able to get this perfectly happy image of her. Her smile is just gorgeous!
Lastly, I had asked her during out interview about her interests, activities, etc. She is really involved with Operation Snowball. If you didn’t grow up in Naperville, I’m not sure if you were introduced to “warm fuzzies”, but I remember Snowball from my own days at NNHS. Snowball is an international alcohol, tobacco and other drug-use prevention program focusing on leadership development to empower youth to lead drug-free lives. And their signature thing are “warm fuzzies”. So we did a couple of images of her surrounded by warm fuzzies.
If you are looking for a Naperville senior photographer (or Hinsdale, Downers Grove, Plainfield, Burr Ridge, Elmhurst, etc), we hope you will consider Firefly Nights Photography, internationally named Best Senior Image in 2017 by NAPCP.
