Naperville w/friends

I have been to downtown Chicago a number of times and I love the many places to have photo shoots, but I had never realized how amazing Naperville is until last Monday!

Rosa and David showed me around the area, all the amazing little shops, the beautiful river walk and parks....etc.

I so want to do a photog meet-up in Naperville sometime!  If for nothing else, so that you guys can experience Le Chocolat du Bouchard.  Shop of fine chocolates and amazing drinks!

Mine was the Chocolate Cherry Chiller in the front, and I would have to say it was the best drink I have had in my life!   Seriously!

Rosa chose the Rasberry Creamsicle Chiller

Thank you David for bringing me to this amazing place of goodness! :o)

I may be a little backwoods, but I had never seen a entire store that only sells tea leaves.  Not coffee beans, not cappuccino...just tea.

Thank you David for the wonderful background! :o)

Anybody want to get married at this place?  I would love to shoot a wedding here!

Oh, and not only are the grounds beautiful, they also have about 10-15 tanks from different wars!

We ended the day with Five Guys burgers and fries.  My first taste of them!


  1. Great picts....Especially David being crazy in the background....Way to ham it up man! :D

  2. Jack, If I haven't introduced myself before, I'm Christine. I found your blog through Britton's (I think!), and I really like looking through your photography. I had to comment on this post when I saw you were in Naperville--my original hometown! And that you know the same people as I do (Rosa)!

    The Riverwalk is a great place to be with a camera. Thanks for sharing this post!

    God bless,

  3. Hey Christine, It's a small world isn't it?

    I actually met Rosa after being introduced by my older brother who met her at PCC in Florida! :o) Wrap your mind around that one!

    Thanks for stopping by Christine!

    P.S. I just became the #30 follower on your blog, looking forward to seeing your work!

  4. Thanks, Jack! Yes--small world indeed!! (And thanks for following!)

  5. Nice shots! I especially love the one of Rosa by the serene!

  6. Great pictures! My sister lives in Chicago. I'll have to visit Naperville and the tea shop while I'm there visiting sometime. It looks like a fun place.


  7. Thank you Elsa and Joanna, I love to shoot pictures in great locations, and Naperville is definitely a great location!

    I am not sure if I would classify the tea shop as "fun" but I would for sure count the place where we got the drinks (Le Chocolat de Bouchard) as a fun place! That being said, I am more of a coffee/chocolate guy over hot tea. Just sayin!

  8. Ha - yeah I am not a tea drinker either. I meant to say the chocolate shop. I couldn't remember the name of it. I will have to try to remember Le Chocolat De Bouchard. :-)
