This gorgeous woman is my Mama.
Seriously – look at this beauty!
I have been wanting to do portraits of my mother for years, but didn’t seem to have all the variables lined up to do it properly until now.
With the new studio in downtown Naperville, IL now open, plus my mom moving back closer to me (well – only a 5 hour drive vs. a 5 hour plane ride), plus her birthday is coming up soon – it seems the time was perfect.
She doesn’t normally wear makeup or get glamourized very often, but I knew what was just waiting to be revealed – and I couldn’t wait to show her.
Luckily my dear friend Kasia was available for this special photo session. She’s met my mother before several times and I knew my mom would trust her to do everything exactly right.
There are so many favorites in this set for me, but I’ll let you take a look below at a selection of other shots we got from this fun and elegant portrait session – along with a couple of behind the scenes shots – because who doesn’t like to get a glimpse behind the curtain, right?
It’s time for you to #existinpictures.
Contact me to schedule your session – the time is NOW to celebrate you!
Ciao for now,
