NAPERVILLE in studio and on location portrait photography.
No matter the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your phone. Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking me to document their growing families and now I just can't get enough!
I love creating photos to remind families that in spite of how messy this journey in life can get; their love and their story are beautiful.
meg and family
I have two rambunctious little boys, and she was an expert at getting them engaged in the process and having fun. As a working mom, I appreciated her substantive preparation in advance of the shoot. She knows her stuff!
She knows just how to put her clients at ease. I highly recommend her!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
No one wants to look like a wet dog in their photos so if it looks like it's going to rain, snow, hail or some other weather catastrophe, we'll be in touch via email or phone to reschedule. Often, when we're scheduling our initial portrait session date, if it works for our calendars, we'll actually set up both a main date and a rain date just to make sure we don't have to postpone your session for very long if the weather is bad on the original date.
The sooner the better! Weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially from April to October, so the sooner you reach out, the more likely you are to get your desired date!
To reserve your date, I need a contract and an initial payment. And if something comes up and you need to change your date, just let me know!
If picking out outfits for photos takes you back to your high school days when you literally tried on everything in your closet and piled it on your bed but still felt like you had nothing to wear, you're in luck.
I put together an extensive outfit suggestion guide with tips for every member of the family.
Unless you've modeled professionally, you're probably going to feel awkward in front of the camera. Heck, we take photos for a living and we even feel like a deer in the headlights when we're in front of the camera.
You're going to feel awkward at first, but as the session goes on and we coach you through images, we think you'll find that being photographed can actually be fun. And don't worry about your kids. We're well versed in capturing even the busiest of little ones.
Within a few weeks of your session, you'll receive a link to a digital gallery that will allow you to download high resolution images.
The gallery is also set up to make ordering prints, canvases and other keepsakes as easy as turning on a Roomba to clean your floors. No worrying about tricky things like color correction, DPI and image format.

The last six years have been a whirlwind! It is my pleasure to announce that coming REAL soon is my NAPERVILLE Portrait Studio. Located right in the heart of Downtown Naperville at Main St. and Jefferson Ave.
This new space will be home to Ashlee Cole Photography where I'll continue to specialize in wedding photography and add in some of my southern roots like Heirloom Vignette Portraits and Bridal Sessions.
I can't wait to share this incredible next step in my journey with you all and to all of you who have supported this little dream of mine; thank you.
