Booking your newborn and maternity shoot. {Downers Grove and Naperville Photographer }

Considering a maternity and newborn session? Be sure to inquire about booking the two together. Many photographers like myself will offer a discount when booking two or more sessions at a time, or have packages to incentivize you to book these together.

Check out this beautiful momma to be… Cant wait to see her little one in my Downers Grove Studio next month!

Want to see a full gallery?!? Downers Grove, Naperville, Chicago, Hinsdale Photographer

It occurred to me recently that when hiring a family photographer (sometimes even for weddings) people don’t ask to see a full gallery.

We are hired on what we show on our websites, which is obviously our best, but have you ever asked to see a full gallery before hiring a photographer? Probably not.

So in an effort to show you what you get when you hire Julianne Green Photography, here is a full gallery:

Its also worth noting that this client took my recommendation on the best time of day to shoot, location and she went above and beyond when styling her outfits… not all light is created equal and be sure to dress the part and talk to me about wardrobes… its easy to have a session like this when we communicate.

'Tis the season for baby boys!

This winter has been the winter of baby boys in my studio… Here are a few images from my most recent and very sleepy little guy (he was a rock star during his session)… This super sweet family has two littles under the age of two now and I have a feeling his big sister is going to give him a run for it when he is old enough to keep up!

Glitter in the deep freeze. {Naperville family photographer} {Chicago Family Photographer} {Hinsdale Family Photographer}

Its that time of year… Chicago winter, a particularly frigid and blustery one at that. What’s a photographer to do you say?

Well, what all photographers are doing right now… give a bunch of kids some glitter and let them go crazy.

Seems simple enough, but kids are never really given free reign to throw, feel and play with glitter; the ever spreading, self adhering, shiny virus that it is.

This experience leaves them all wanting to come back tomorrow, but not til next year kids or maybe never if I don’t have amnesia about the clean up required, HAHAHA. Only time will tell.

Mommy and Me | Chicago family photographer | Naperville Family Photographer

Lets see a show of “likes” (yes I mean click like on the post if you experience this)… How many of you out there have Facebook and Instagram feeds FULL of images of your kids, your kids happily playing on the swings at the park or walking into school for the first time or running down the soccer field or just being their goofy selves? How many of you have photos of your kids all over the house on display with pride? Now, how many of you have nary a photo of yourself, on Facebook, Instagram, or your walls? How many of you have pictures showing the love you have for your little ones while you embrace them and someone else is behind the camera like those shown here?

Hinsdale Family Photographer

I bet you most of you are saying, well I’m the person taking the pic with my iPhone, unless i’m running around with a self stick all day, I have to be the one taking the pictures, right?

Naperville Family Photographer

I’m here to tell you, get out from behind the camera and do a photo session with a photographer that can put you at ease to be yourself with your littles, a photographer that will capture images like these showing the love and fun that your family is experiencing. Get those pictures of running and playing with them, not running after them with the iPhone. These times are very brief… but pictures last a lifetime, don’t forget to take a day and do this for not only yourself but you kiddos. Something to look at and remember these fleeting moments.

Chicago Family Photographer

Photo sessions aren’t always the easiest to plan, and maybe make some people feel a little uncomfortable, but with the right photographer, you will be at ease… photographers will help you plan your outfits, they will position you… All you need to do is bring the love and willingness to be yourself. I implore you to do this for yourself, so that you may have images like these to look back on and remember the fun you had with your little ones before you blink.

When Costco gives you lemons! {Chicago Family Photographer} {Naperville Family Photographer

When Costco has HUGE bags of lemons for sale, you get two and come to my studio in downtown Downers Grove!  Well at least that is what this creative momma did!  We had so much fun playing around with the set up, and the little one had fun trying to eat them... check it out a few highlights from this lemon-tactic session!

These sweet sisters had some time to themselves in front of the camera before showing off some snuggles and funny moments :)

Connecting - Downers Grove Photographer

I am just getting back from the Reset Conference where I spent 2 very full days connecting with other photographers, connecting with myself as a person, mom and photographer and connecting with my business.  This got me thinking about what inspires me, what drives me to pick up my camera time and time again, what images I'm drawn to... what do I love to see and feel.  

So I decided to do a little exercise and went through a bunch my images.  Every image that really spoke to me, I put it in the folder.  

Well... here they are.  

Downers Grove Photographer

I really liked this exercise and so I kept going....

And going...

OK you get the point.  Aside from the obvious change in seasons, what do you see as the common thread in all of them?  What do they make you feel? Please I REALLY want to know... because 1) I genuinely want to know what you feel but 2) I'm curious if anyone is reading this, lol.

I will tell you what I see when people start responding.
