    Riley Jolie Photography -

    It has been a very busy year and I am so thankful for all of my wonderful clients both old and new. It has been our honor to be able to work with each and everyone of you. Thanks to all of my wonderful clients, we are currently booked through January 2013.

One plus One equals Two! | Maternity Photographer | St. Charles, Illinois

I was so honored to be able to photograph this mama and her hubby during one of the most special times in a persons life.  I went to grade school with her and grew up right down the block from her family.  It was so wonderful to be able to capture such a wonderful time.  I can’t wait to meet this precious little girl.

Fashion show If the Bow Fits | Meet and Greet with Melissa Gorga from Real Housewives of NJ

This past weekend, I had the fabulous opportunity to be the exclusive photographer at Café Buonaro’s In Naperville, IL for the SOLD OUT Meet & Greet & Fashion Show with Real Housewives of New Jersey Stars, Joe, Melissa & Antonia Gorga. Guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner featuring a salad, appetizer, and family-style entrée selection, two glasses of wine, and dessert.  Every guest also had the opportunity to meet and take photographs with the Gorga’s in an intimate, family-style setting; and purchase a copy of Melissa’s hit debut single, “On Display.” Melissa & Joe Gorga took their time talking with each and every one of their most loyal fans as the children in attendance ran up and squeezed both Melissa and Joe several times throughout the night as if they were relatives. The Gorga Family is one of the most down to earth families I have encountered. My daughter, Addison just couldn’t get enough of her either.

Antonia Gorga the daughter of Joe & Melissa walked in a fashion show for http://www.ifthebowfits.com/ – Chicago’s premiere fashion boutique for children showcasing some of their most popular designs. Additional guests included Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Jaime Laurita and Kim Pirrella, celebrity make-up artist George Miguel Costa, and radio personality Jill Hickey of NotSoSoccerMomRadio.

Sponsors for this event include All Natural Skin Care, BriZan Couture, Midwest Crochet, and Karisma Boutique.

Family Fun | Plainfield, IL Family Photography

It is always so much fun for me to work with families right in my own neighborhood.  And even better when the little girl goes to school with my little girl.  This family was so much fun to work with this past fall season.  Despite the fact that the weather was so crazy, we got out there in the rain and took some really fun pictures.  What a beautiful and fun family they are.

Playing Dress Up | Addison Il Photographer

Every little girl deserves a chance to play dress and what a special time it is to be able to capture with a photo.  Plan your photo shoot with Riley Jolie Photography and let your princess shine.

A special thanks goes out to Nicole Rousseau from Poshtique Children’s Boutique for helping me set the scene.
