…and we’re constantly changing the scenery.

Well we are back from our visit to Chi-town and we had a blast!   Our trip was geared to photograph some of the most gorgeous and kind-hearted ladies to include in our CLASS OF 2015 senior campaign!

“Why Chicago?”  Well that’s a great question.  I like to say “Why NOT Chicago?”  Especially since it’s only like one my most favorite places ever!  Lol.  The food alone would be enough to keep me satisfied for a lifetime.   However, we did have work to do and seriously, Chicago is beyond insanely cool to shoot in.  The architecture is phenomenal and there are new surroundings every second even if you stay put in the same spot.  I am the kind of person who feeds off the energy of the hustle and bustle, crowds, noise and even traffic.  There is nothing like it. Drawing on that much energy allows my creativity to go through the roof and it needs to go somewhere right?


We stayed at the popular “Wit” hotel right on State Street.  DIRECTLY next to The Chicago Theater.  It was incredible.  The Wit has some serious modern décor that we were in love with.  We started our shoot there.  Big thanks to the staff for allowing us to invade the lobby for a bit.  Speaking of the staff, they were ridiculously kind and attentive.  I’m thinking that it might even be one of my favorite hotel experiences ever because of their ability to make the stay perfect!

Ok, back to the shoot.  We then continued to The Chicago Theater and photographed some really great street scenes, complete with passer-by foot traffic.  :)  As I was demonstrating to Alex how to stand in the photo, a man driving by leaned out of his window smiled at us and shouted, “You go on and show her how to pose right!”  lol, we had a good laugh at that one.  Captured Memories, causing a scene everywhere. :)

That afternoon we spend some time in a great neighborhood with some beautiful brownstones and then headed over to the LaSalle Street Bridge to finish up.  It was COLD… like, freezing.  For real.  The girls were troopers and we really ended up with some incredible images.  We will be posting some sneak peeks periodically so be on the look out!

Lastly, we finished up with our very own Rachel’s senior photos for this year.  Union Station was the scene and it was gorgeous!  Rachel made a few friends and was asked to have her photo taken, lol.  :)

Will we continue to shoot in Chicago?  Oh yes!  Make sure to stay tuned we have BIG plans for that city, HUGE!  :)

exclusive senior session

No doubt you have begun to receive many offers for senior portraits already. It can certainly be confusing to know where to begin. That’s why it’s important to consider the following when selecting a studio:

Experience and photographer abilities: Paula has been photographing professionally for 16 years. The benefits of having an experienced photographer who knows their equipment, lighting and posing as second nature is paramount when you are spending your time and money to capture this once in a lifetime event.

Quality of portraits: There is a significant difference between discount store reprints and professionally crafted lab portraits. Because no doubt, you want your images to be around for MANY years in the same condition you purchased them in.

Studio experience: This is a factor that many do not consider. How enjoyable will my experience be? Will my session drag out and be uncomfortable as the photographer struggles to pose me or I pose myself? Or will my photographer explain and demonstrate quickly and effectively what I need to do to look my very best in my portraits? Most of our clients leave the studio saying “Wow, that was really fun and so much easier than I was anticipating..” (We’ll take that as a compliment!)

We certainly take pride in what we do and want you to know that we carry out that pride from start to finish with your session.  And by finish, we mean we are at your service with anything you need until you’re walking in the door of college your freshman year – or whatever door you open next after high school graduation.

Hopefully this has helped clear the air for you as you’re booking your senior session this summer! Remember, the sooner you book with us, the more you save, and the better options you have for dates and times!
