chicago arlington heights maternity photographer-5

I joined this glowing and very sweet preggo and her family at Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. Camille and Wayne are expecting baby #2 in the coming weeks, and big brother Alton is excited! Quite the charmer, if I might add, too. (I mean, did you see the fedora?) ADORE him. Seriously, just adore.

Besides getting to photograph the cutest little dude twinning it with his dad, this shoot was memorable also because I brought Baby Cole with me. Yep, strapped right to my chest the whole time. Quick segue because this is a topic I feel strongly about –

As one of many working women, we’re on the cutting edge of a continuing cultural revolution in corporate America – and I’m excited that I’ve got an opportunity, on my own terms as an independent photographer and proud #bossbabe, to show my sons how to be motivated and to succeed, live and work well. I personally want to raise boys who believe that we’re all equal, and who admire and respect successful women.

Congrats to Camille and Wayne! Can’t wait to see what they are having!

xo, Melissa

hindu and sikh engagement party-12

The pre-gamer to your Wedding Day, a.k.a the Engagement Party, can be such a fun way to get your feet wet when it comes to throwing big bashes to celebrate your love. Those are the best kind of parties, in my opinion, and this Indian engagement party in Naperville, IL is quite the stunner. Feast your eyes on some sparkly, jewel-toned goodness from Nikki and Vivek’s engagement party that included lots of family and friends (and a beloved dog), traditional music and Sikh prayer. And that gorgeous outfit she wore? I’m in love. The whole affair seemed to take place around her spectacular cobalt blue garb, from the delish three-layer ombre cake to the colorfully draped backdrop.

Congrats to Nikki and Vivek!

Thank You for choosing Melissa Diep Photography!

Enjoy your photos!

Permission to Print

You are allowed to make unlimited prints for your own personal use from the high-resolution images provided to you.

Melissa Diep Photography retains copyrights on all images (even those purchased) and reserves the right to use the images and/or reproductions for display, publication, or other purposes. “All rights” pricing is available. Under no circumstances can a client use these images for profit, commercial endeavors, in competitions, or for professional display.

Copy Your Gallery!
Please make several back ups of your images. This is the first thing you should do. Store one copy in a safety deposit box if you can.

Printing Tips
When printed, your images may not necessarily match what you see on your computer screen due to difference in monitor calibration. Therefore, I strongly recommend against altering your images on the computer as it could greatly affect the final print quality. Before investing in very large prints, it is a good idea to have a 4×6 printed first to make sure their colors/quality are desirable.
Leave these images at 300 dpi. That is the best resolution for printing. When you go from a 4×6 to an 8×10 or change ratios, you are going to lose some parts of the image. It’s unavoidable. When possible, crop as needed using the tools in the kiosk or by the online print vendor. Preview to make sure you’re not losing important parts of the image and then adjust as needed.
Do NOT let labs auto color correct your prints! Look around for that option and make sure it is not selected.

We have provided you with the highest quality images possible and cropped and color-corrected them how I believe they will print the best. Some images (particularly those shot in low light) may have visible digital noise when enlarged too much. This is normal, but may not be aesthetically pleasing. In those cases, black and white might be a better option.
In addition, if you crop an image in too tightly in Photoshop or another editing program, you will lose resolution and may cause it to be pixilated when enlarged. Bottom line: to ensure the best print quality, avoid altering your images before printing.
