FAMILIES

I specialize in storytelling through lifestyle photographs. I also specialize in goofiness and genuine connections. Our session will be fun, relaxed, and probably won't feel like a photo session at all. My style is laid back and minimalistic, focusing on your unique family connection.

SESSION INFO & PRICING

 
FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS

My style of photography is untraditional and results in a collection of images that speak to your family’s unique beauty and connection. I include as many photographs as possible to tell the narrative of your family. I never want you to have to choose moments or miss out on your favorite images.

For lifestyle family and portrait sessions in Chicago, we meet at one of the many locations this gorgeous city has to offer. Some families choose to have their sessions in the home, and I’m happy to do so. I know that many families are not complete without their pets, and they are welcome them to join our sessions. 

Lifestyle Family Photo Session | $375

Includes a family photography session lasting 30 - 60 minutes depending on ages, attention spans and nap times. Available in home or on site - the ideal location depends your preference, size, location and activity level of the family. Some photos are edited for color and black and white. Includes all high resolution digital files from your gallery presented in a private online gallery. All images are lovingly reviewed, chosen and retouched as needed by me, your photographer. The gallery can be shared with others for viewing, printing and downloading. Extended family groups may incur a slightly higher fee. 

Mini Chicago Park Family Photo Session | $250

Perfect for Chicago visitors! Includes a 20 minute session in Millennium Park. Includes 5 - 10 high resolution digital files from your gallery. Weekends only.

I work hard to create images that reflect your unique image, style and intention. Portrait sessions can include a variety of photographic needs, including professional head shots, marketing images, social media profile photos, high school senior sessions and engagement shoots.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY 

Weddings are an extremely special experience for me, and I am absolutely humbled and honored to have the opportunity to capture wedding stories and celebrations with my lens. That said, I am fiercely loyal and sensitive to the process. Because of the time, energy and love I pour into my wedding couples, I shoot a limited number of weddings annually.

 

I shoot all weddings with my best friend and partner-in-life-crimes, Mike, who is the artist, Canon technician and full-time professional photographer I trust most. We shoot in an organically-directed, photojournalistic style aimed to capture genuine moments. However, getting those images requires a sense of humor, empathy, and a masterful understanding of posing, timing, lighting and mothers-in-law. We come prepared to put you at ease; so you can forget about the photographs and be in the moment for your  celebration.

 
Wedding Photography | Starts at $2,500 & includes:

- Pre-planning sessions

- 8 hours of wedding photography

- Two photographers for your entire day

- Multiple locations as needed

- High resolution digital images via online gallery (for viewing, printing & sharing with guests)

Available additions

- Discounted engagement session ($250)

- Additional hours of photography ($200/hour)

- Luxury wedding album ($275)

I offer wedding photography services in Greater Chicago, Michigan, Wisconsin and the Midwest. I also travel throughout the United States and internationally. Travel fees and hotel rates may apply, and some wedding services are limited internationally. Please contact me for availability and accurate pricing.
