Family Portraits

Capturing Your Most Cherished Bond

A knowing glance. A life full of laughter. Through customized photo portraits, I strive to communicate the story of your family's love, legacy, and laughter—whether you're a household of two or twelve.

From the kids' favorite playground to your own backyard, we first collaborate to choose a Chicagoland location that reflects your family's interests and lifestyle – an environment where you are most comfortable. If you don't have a setting in mind, I'm happy to provide suggestions.

What You Can Expect

Your photo shoot will incorporate both classic poses and candid shots. Just be yourself, relax, and enjoy each other! Each session lasts anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. Forty-five minutes is typical, but I will reserve at least 90 minutes per session as kids moods can be unpredictable.

After your shoot, I select the best images and hand-process them to make colors more vibrant, soften skin tones, remove blemishes, and add creative effects, such as conversion to black-and-white or sepia.


Your Investment, Simplified

A single family portrait session costs $350. With my special "Family Milestones" package, you get two portrait sessions in a year's time for $625.

These flat fees cover your session and give you full ownership of all your finished images (minimum of 20). Your high-resolution digital photos are provided to you on a memory stick so you can load them onto your computer or have prints of any size made anywhere. It just doesn't get any simpler than that.

If you'd prefer me to handle the printing of your photos, that is not a problem. Just let me know what you're looking for and I'll create a customized print package just for you.
