Alicia Johnson considers her work an integral part of family memories, photographing unique moments that tell the stories of a lifetime like births, graduations, engagements and weddings. However, she doesn’t limit herself. Alicia and her colleague Samantha Jensen run a “full circle” studio, catering to all special individual events and fashion photography needs, on location or in their Naperville workspace.
Being a mom of three and owning her own photography business for nearly two decades, Alicia prides herself on the ability to make everyone, especially children, feel at ease in front of the camera.
You could say that photography runs in the blood of George Papadakis, who caught the photography bug from his father, an amateur photographer. George channeled his passion into his profession, defining his art form as “the ability to create with light and with vision,” showcased in his diverse subjects, from people to products and architecture.
George has a particular gift for capturing natural emotion and realistic expressions, which he terms a person’s “natural self,” but doesn’t ignore the business side of his craft. He can take a project from inception to completion, providing as much or as little input and direction as his clients request.
