Sept through Dec is a whirlwind of photo shoots so very little updates/blog posts are written so I am slowly catching up and working back. Here is some of what I worked on this fall. Starting with the cover image of the winter edition of Northwestern Research magazine which I shot a couple of the pieces. Got a little playful with lighting for this one.

School Photography

February 16, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

all kidsall kids

School Photography is not something I show a lot because there seems to always be a parent in a class who doesn't want their child showing up anywhere online so I want to respect that and not publish class photos. But for a bunch of years now I have done school portraits for a few schools in the area. The Children's School in Berwyn was the first to ask me to do this back in 2012 and I have worked with them every year since, adding Alcuin Montessori and Oak Park Friends over the years. It is a pretty entertaining experience and a lot of work. There are kids who love it and totally ham it up and there are kids who just stand there with a serious look on their face no matter what, and then there are the itty bitty ones who sometimes are scared to tears of anything unusual (and there is a lot of snot). The families get to review a gallery of images to choose from which I like more than pre-purchasing a package of that fake smile one you sometimes get with school photos, but sometimes that fake smile one is who the kid is at that moment in time and I appreciate those too. Here is just a taste of this past falls school photos.

Headshot, small business marketing images and education marketing and events have be the focus of much of my 2017 work so far.

Northwestern has kept me busy both with work for the upcoming research magazine and editorials for SPS website, while here in Oak Park I've been doing some lifestyle headshots and small business creative work in the snow.

Back to school

And there they go, off back to school for another year. How did the summer go by so fast.

​I did work but mostly I hung out with these two, we went on a few trips, we went to the pool A LOT, we ate a lot of ice-cream and somehow three months went by in the blink of an eye.

​One of our trips was to this fab cabin where we got to relax in nature, where we kayaked, cannoned, read, sat, chatted and made some good food.

IMGL7377IMGL7377 There were a lot of laughs and a little magic



We realize vacations with friends are really awesome for the kids so we drove to Colorado and camped with a few other families, again nature is the way to go. I pretty much took these days off photography, a few snaps on a stop along the way, and a few snaps at the campsite. I just experienced the wonderful scenery and left the landscapes photography to the guide books.

​There was sports, plays, three birthdays, family visits, playdates and most importantly there was downtime to draw, read and create town and building and worlds.
