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.

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.

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?

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.

3 become 4! {Chicago Newborn Photographer} {Naperville Newborn Photographer}

When I met family "P" their beautiful baby girl was turning one... a couple years later and we have seen each other again for a maternity session and most recently I had the opportunity to take the first images of their beautiful baby boy.  This is what makes my work so fulfilling... What other job do you get to be a part of peoples' most important moments... it makes for really happy work!  XOXO "P" family... until next time.

Baby Crazy in Chicago

What better way to beat the cold than snuggling newborns!?!  This Chicago winter has been cold, snowy and full of adorable little bundles!  These three families all have new members, but are at very different stages in their lives.  We have a first born, a new big sister, and 6 kids become 7... Check out a few of my favorites.  

Hot Cocoa Session

Fall weather can be a bit all over the place, especially this year!  But have no fear, if your session is set for a day that might not be exactly optimal, we can turn lemons into lemonade... or chocolate into hot cocoa in this case. 

We managed to get some amazing family photos, and then wrapped up with a warm cup of cocoa.  Check out these amazing shots on a chilly evening in November.  

Perspective

Perspective can mean the difference between a tosser and an amazing composition.  The perspective on this particular shot creates a bit of an illusion... children that appear to be running up hill with the sky in the distance are actually running down hill to a lake.  

Buffalo plaid!

These beautiful babes in buffalo plaid look perfect for fall photos... and will make for awesome holiday cards!
