There was a busy start to the new year.

January 2nd, met with a couple who are now a wedding client for June, followed by a flurry of shoots. A bunch of editorials for Northwestern Research Magazine and their Impact report, some headshots for Urban CCD at Argonne National Labs, some hospital shots for Riveredge hospital, some lecture shots, and a bunch of business portraits and marketing images for a mix of clients, some traditional headshots some more playful.

School Portraits 2017 http://www.emphotography.net/blog/2018/1/school-portraits-2017 whole schoolwhole school


I do school portraits for four schools in four weeks, that is a lot of fun faces and a few very serious ones.

One school I is mostly B&W, one is outdoors, some do group shots some don't, so each one is a little different

here is a taste

fall 2017 family recap http://www.emphotography.net/blog/2018/1/fall-2017-family-recap 2V0A27162V0A2716

Autumn to December is just so busy, my favorite season weather wise and one big flurry work wise. On top of the regular commercial work I do the rest of the year I photograph four schools in October and add in a bunch of family sessions on weekends. People want that image for their holiday cards and print to send to grandma.

Here is a little bit of the family work

I've been photographing these two families for a few years now, usually outdoors but we moved inside this year because of rain. 2V0A28472V0A2847


This one was a 'get everyone together' for a big group shot

another cold day so we were moving fast 2V0A33402V0A3340

I photographed them earlier in the summer on the day the baby was born, then we met down town for this fun and games

but this dog made it all worth it

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.

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 http://www.emphotography.net/blog/2017/2/school-photography 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.

Back to school http://www.emphotography.net/blog/2016/9/back-to-school 1st day1st day

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.

I don't think I need to write a lot in this post, I'm posting because this Sunday is Mother's Day and my heart goes out to all the mothers trying to do their best for their children, and all that encompasses. But especially those fighting cancer and other illnesses.

$150 give us about a half hour to work together to get you two images

$300 gives us a lot more time, about one and a half hours to do a verity of images, and/or more creative images. We can go to multiple locations and change clothes (you, not me) and six final digital images are included. Additional files can be purchased.

family holiday cards http://www.emphotography.net/blog/2016/1/family-holiday-cards blogblog

The Autumn season was a whirlwind of photo shoots. Conferences, headshots, school portraits, marketing material and of course family photos for the end of year holiday card and gifts. Thank you to the families that return year after year, and the new people checking me out. 

We kept it very simple this year, left the concepts and props and presets and filters behind and pretty much went for simplicity. Not always easy to get family photos to look 'simple'. Bad light, cold weather, 4 kids at once are just a few things we had to work with on some of these, but we had fun and made the most of it all and got a lot of natural personality shinning through. 


The new year kicked in with lots of annual report photos followed this week with my first newborn of 2016.
