Professional Headshots

Published by Jan under headshots

I had the pleasure of going to Illinois Constructors Corporation headquarters in Elburn to photograph the president of the company John Mackanin and his team of engineers.  They are in the midst of updating their website and print brochures and wanted business headshots and also more casual/working images of the men and the equipment. Here are some of their favorite images.

And a casual group shot of the team together

Catherine ’12 – Burlington Central High School

Published by Jan under senior,teen

I think I have known Catherine for ever!  Seriously, her mom is a very good friend of mine and we have done a lot of Bible studies, prayer groups and serving together so I have had the privilege of watching Catherine grow up and become a young adult.  She is a beautiful young women inside and out.  Catherine and I have served together in the nursery at church for several years and the kids LOVE her.  She has a special way with the toddlers and they just flock to her!

Catherine’s session was held at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles.  It was a cold and windy day – in fact she was wrapped in a blanket between shots it was sooo cold.  But she was quite the trooper – I don’t think she looks cold or uncomfortable in any of her images!!  Here is some interesting facts about Catherine:

3 things you couldn’t live without:
