Children & Family Sessions

As an experienced Downers Grove children & family photographer, I know the real trick isn’t getting everyone to smile at the camera (though I’ve got a knack for that, too). It’s capturing the things you cherish about your family. Maybe it’s a special moment with the one you love. Maybe it’s those chubby baby toes, or a little grin with a few teeth missing, or a hard-won hug from your teen. Whatever it is, I’ll work with you to capture nostalgic family photos you’ll love to look back on for the rest of your lives.
