Chicago Family Photographer

Chicago Family Photographer – Hyde Park

Hiring me as your Chicago family photographer ensures that you are in capable hands. I specialize in capturing candid and genuine moments, while also providing guidance for natural poses that highlight your family in the most flattering way. With over twenty years of experience in photographing families, my ultimate goal is to create timeless photographs that your family will cherish.

I firmly believe that people look their best when they are comfortable and relaxed. During my sessions, the atmosphere is laid-back and enjoyable, as we make an effort to have a great time together. I particularly focus on ensuring that children have a fun experience, employing a play-based approach that consistently yields great results!Chicago Family Photographer

There are several magnificent locations near Hyde Park ideal for outdoor family portrait sessions. Promontory Point is particularly favored, especially during sunset on most days. When it comes to families with young children, I enjoy incorporating playtime at any of the fantastic nearby playgrounds.

Get in touch and let’s make some wonderful memories!

I would love to be your Chicago Family Photographer!

Here are four reasons why you should hire me as your Chicago Family Photographer:

1. Photographs that include YOU too!

Let’s be honest, as a parent, you’ve taken countless photos of your children, right? If you scroll through your camera roll, what do you see? Lots of pictures of YOUR kids, and possibly your kids with your partner. However, all of these photos are missing one important person: YOU. Don’t let this happen to you and your family. Keepsakes are important for the years to come, and you’ll want to look back at photographs where everyone in the family is included. Hiring a professional photographer for your family photos is one of the best decisions you can make.


2. Stress-free

I am very familiar with many outdoor parks around Chicago and Hyde Park, and I also have a lovely studio. So, you won’t have to stress about finding the perfect location or setting up for the photoshoot. I am happy to help you find a great location, and if needed, I have an account with the Chicago Park District and can assist in obtaining local park district permits for classic Chicago skyline views that require them.


3. A FUN experience

A photo session should be something enjoyable and memorable for the whole family. Creating a great experience is always my goal. I have a candid and laid-back style when working with families, and I’m always willing to take the time needed for little ones to settle and feel comfortable. Throughout the session, you can count on me to have a huge smile and create a fun atmosphere.

4. Year-round options with a studio

In Chicago, the winters can be pretty cold, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting family photos done. Not many local Chicago family photographers have access to an indoor studio space, but I do. With a studio located in Hyde Park and free parking right outside the entrance, you can schedule your photoshoots based on your family’s availability, not the weather. I am even willing to do in-home sessions for young kids. The studio space offers wonderful lighting, an office, and a bathroom, providing spaces to change and relax before and after the session.

I would love to be your Chicago Family Photographer!
