Capturing Life's Precious Moments

Why Family Portraits Are Special

Quality pictures of your family are precious.  Life goes by fast and looking at a picture is a way to travel back in time.  A beautiful family portrait is one of those things that become priceless over time and I'm truly lucky to be the one to capture that moment.  Trust me I know, I look at photos of my daughter and can't believe how big she has gotten over a short period of time.  Family portraits are great to share with friends and family, but also make for great hanging pieces in your home!  I know you can think of ONE empty spot on your wall which is just begging for a beautiful family photo to be placed in. 

What To Expect

My family portrait sessions are relaxed and most importantly fun!  We will do both posed and candid photos during the session, as well as individual portraits of everyone in the family.  The session typically takes about one hour.


We can shoot at your favorite forest preserve, public park, Chicago, downtown Naperville, or even at the comfort of your own home.  I'm open to any other locations as long as we're allowed to shoot there.
