Chicago Family Photographers | Chicago Family Beach Session | Chicago Storytelling Photographer | Montrose Beach Chicago

I love telling your family’s story through photographs. Capturing your connection and delivering galleries filled with embraces, laughs and moments are what I’m all about. Throughout all of my sessions I ask that you get close, look at one another and try to forget that I’m there. Play with your kids, breathe them in and soak up this precious time in life. As a Chicago lifestyle photographer, I want to give you photos that reflect who you are as a family. To show your playful side, or your child’s shy side. To capture you exactly the way you are.

Jennie, Jack and Sam are the perfect example of my favorite way to photograph families. Jennie shared with me that when searching for a family photographer she was looking for someone who had a storytelling approach. Storytelling sessions are focused on your connection instead of the traditional everyone look and smile at the camera photos. I enjoy lots of variety and movement in my storytelling sessions and Montrose Bird Sanctuary and Beach gives us all of those things. Plus who doesn’t love splashing in the warm waves on a Summer night? I might have squealed a little bit when I asked them if they want to get in the water and Jennie immediately responded, “Yes, we want to get in the water!” Having the waves crash around this beautiful family at sunset was a total dream. Oh and the birds, oh my the birds!!! I couldn’t have asked for better timing - keep scrolling to see one of my favorite moments from this Chicago family beach session.

If you are hoping for a Chicago family session filled with connection and emotion I would love to hear from you!
