The shutterbug instructors at Shoot Like A Pro cement photographic know-how into their clients’ craniums through technical lessons and onsite practice. During workshops and excursions, students first learn to manipulate their own cameras, picking up tips about ISO, f-stop, shutter speed and composition before testing their skills during two hours of shooting time. Shoot Like A Pro’s events lend themselves to all types of digital cameras as well as to beginner photographers and more experienced students looking to refresh their skills.

At Jill's, familial freeze-frames are crafted in a relaxed studio environment, where photographers collaborate with clients to execute both traditional portraits and candid snaps.

Jill's expertly paces photo sessions to keep kids and infants captivated and families copacetic, producing an eclectic array of tantrum-less portraits to choose from by the end of the hour. Check out the "Things to Know" section of the company website for answers to common questions such as “What should we wear?” and “What makes time travel possible?” Guests can also opt to upgrade to a location or beach shoot for an additional fee.
Naperville Shoe, Luggage, Tailoring & Repairs lovingly resurrects shoes, purses, and pieces of luggage, rewarding their loyal service with a material makeover. Pairs of shoes may receive a heel fix-up ($22–$30 for men; $10–18 for women) to mitigate the consequences of friction and gravity, or a total heel and full-sole overhaul ($68–$75 for men), which counters erosion brought on by walking over rough concrete or tap dancing with sea urchins. In cases of faded suede, a dye application ($30 for men; $25 for women) brings back the warm chestnut browns and midnight blacks of yesteryear’s leather. Or opt for new elastics on shoe backs ($17 for two) to help restore spring to your strut. A complimentary shoe buffing accompanies all repairs, sending feet back into the world looking snug, sharp, and shiny enough to attract the notice of every handsome sock salesman.
It took the birth of her first child for Alicia Johnson to recognize her passion for photography, as she whiled away her spare time snapping shots of her baby. This newfound hobby triggered the artistic impulses she’d felt her whole life, which have since manifested into a professional photography career spanning the last 16 years. Alicia still cherishes the opportunity to snap pictures of newborns—her favorite subjects—as well as children, families, and high-school seniors. Her calming manner puts infants and adults alike at ease as she harnesses natural light and flattering angles to compose each frame. Alicia’s loft studio in Naperville, located inside the historic Fifth Avenue station, provides chic backdrops and props while on-location shoots let subjects pose against an organic background or favorite tropical-themed screensaver. Alicia’s Photography also offers editing services, as well as traditional prints and images grafted onto canvases, jewelry, iPhone cases, and electronic mediums such as website galleries and DVDs.
