Oh my gosh! I have been WAITING for this day for so long. I recently put an all-call out to my network to see if anybody wanted to help me out by modeling for a special Downers Grove halloween session. And boy, oh boy, they did not disappoint.

This session was all trick and treat as we set out for a full session with makeup, costumes, smoke, weapons, and all of the zombie magic you could hope for as a photographer. As a Downers Grove photographer, I love a chance to stretch my skill and get creative. This Halloween-inspired session was a creative challenge that I have been thinking about for a while now.

We all had a ghoul-d time, as we used the forest for a backdrop for this scream-worthy session. It was so frightening that we even got a visit from LPD finest to see what the fuss was about. Yep, can’t say I’ve ever had the cops called on me for a session before, but there’s a first time for everything. I can never claim that being a Downers Grove photographer is boring, right?

Of course, they were all in good spirits once they realized what we were up to.

I loved being able to work with such a wide range of ages for this session. It really shows that Halloween is for kids big and small! We had a blast coming up with the spookiest, most terrifying, and utterly creepy shots we could.

One look at the group shots, and you know: You do not want to mess with this crew. How am I so lucky to call these people my friends and family!?

Downers Grove photography can be as crazy as your imagination can dream up. Do you have a fantastic Halloween session idea? Let’s chat about how we can make it happen (minus the police, of course).
