The Best Senior
Session Locations

In the Greater Chicagoland Area

You only have one senior session

One of the first questions I am ALWAYS asked after a session is booked is where should we go for your senior session?  There are so many gorgeous locations with so many different styles and vibes all within a 40 minute drive from Wheaton. 

 Whether you want something a little more outdoorsy, or you really just want some great pictures in the backyard with your dog, there really are no right or wrong answers to where to have your senior session.

It's all about finding a place that feels like you.

So where on earth should we go?

The Best places for senior photos in North East Illinois 

Blackwell Forest Preserve | Wheaton Illinois

One of the most popular locations in the Wheaton area for senior photos, Blackwell Forest Preserve is the perfect spot for all the nature lovers out there.  Between the rolling hills, the tall grasses, the large lakes and the winding roads, Blackwell has SO many gorgeous backdrops for your senior session.  Check out some of my favorite senior sessions at Blackwell Forest Preserve here!

Cantigny Park | Wheaton Illinois

Cantigny is an absolutely gorgeous location for senior photos.  There is an additional $35 photo permit fee in order to have your session at Cantigny, and you also will have to pay for your own parking upon arrival.  The photo permit fee is non-refundable, including if our session gets rained out.  Cantigny has many well cared for gardens, and endless amounts of greenery throughout the property.

Chicago Riverwalk | Chicago ILlinois

I LOVE the riverwalk in Chicago, surrounded by all of the architecture that makes up the city, the river front is SUCH a cool location for senior photos.  I highly recommend heading to the city early in the morning for your session to beat the crowds and so we can have some of the most gorgeous views to ourselves.

Chicago Lake Front | Chicago ILlinois

Places like Promontory Point, North Avenue Beach  or Museum Campus are gorgeous locations to have your senior session.  Have the full skyline in the background of your senior photos as we walk around some of the coolest parts of the city. 

Downtown Geneva | Geneva IL

Downtown Geneva has the coolest little nooks and crannies throughout its downtown.  The old shops, the unique houses and all of the character that makes up downtown Geneva serves as the perfect backdrop for any senior photo session.

Downtown NAperville | Naperville IL

Downtown Naperville is a gorgeous spot for senior photos.  Between the riverwalk, the paths leading over to the clock tower, and the downtown space there are plenty of brick walls, nature and urban styled landscapes for your senior photo session.

Downtown Wheaton | Wheaton IL

Much like Downtown Geneva, Downtown Wheaton is FILLED with so many little nooks of beauty throughout the downtown space.  The back allies have remnants of past businesses that once existed there, there are SO many cool little spaces, and there are plenty of spots off the main roads that are perfect for photos.

Dupage County fair grounds | Wheaton IL

Dupage County Fair Ground is super unique in that it's always changing.  Murals throughout the spaces, and the small buildings that make up the fair grounds make for super cool and bare bone backgrounds for a super unique senior session.

FAbyan Forest Preserve | Wheaton IL

Dupage County Fair Ground is super unique in that it's always changing.  Murals throughout the spaces, and the small buildings that make up the fair grounds make for super cool and bare bone backgrounds for a super unique senior session.

Herrick Lake | wheaton IL

Herrick lake is one of the prettiest spots in Wheaton in my opinion, ESPECIALLY in the fall season.  With all the leaves in the trees changing colors, they reflect off the surface of the lake and make for a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for your senior photos.

Your home | TBD IL

I LOVE starting a senior session at home.  Whether it's to spend some time with your pups, or you really just like your backyard/neighborhood, there are always so many great spots in every yard for some photos.  Not to mention I am ALWAYS down for some photos with your fur babies

Lilacia park | lombard IL

Lilacia park is the CUTEST little park in Lombard right off the train tracks.  Filled with seasonal flowers and adorable brick paths, Lilacia is the perfect spot for a mini session or the last stop at your senior session.

Pottawattomie Park | St. Charles IL

Pottawattomie is an awesome option for those in the St. Charles/Geneva area.  Pottawattomie Park has a lot of different backgrounds that are great for your senior session.  Small fountains, the river front, and colosseum styled steps are awesome for senior sessions.

Your school | TBD

What speaks more to your senior photos than some pictures at where you spent your last four years?  Permitting these spaces are free I love showing off the sports my seniors participated in as well as where they spent most of their time.  Whether thats the softball field, the baseball field, the football stadium, the tennis court or so many more options!

St. James Forest farm | Wheaton

A definite fan favorite for many of my clients, St. James Forest Farm in Wheaton Illinois is an awesome location for senior portraits for virtually any senior.  The gorgeous green backgrounds mixed with the soft colors of the grasses make for BEAUTIFUL senior portraits.  On top of that, there are barns, trains, fences, fields and seriously so much more.

West Branch Forest Preserve | West Chicago

West Branch is a gorgeous little forest preserve just on the edge of Carol Stream and West Chicago.  With its lakes, docks and tree covered paths, West Branch is a perfect option for your senior session.  I love doing a loop around half of the lake or so with my clients so we can get a variety of photos within the same location.

Wheaton College | Wheaton

Wheaton College is full of so much history and has so many unique background throughout its campus.  If you're planning to go to Wheaton College or if you even just spend a lot of time around Wheaton with your friends I highly recommend Wheaton College for your senior sesion.
