A Chicago Portrait Photographer on Smiles and Styles

From the beginning of my career as a photographer in Chicago, my focus has been to capture the energy of personality in portrait form.


In the past, these images never reached their potential, because many times they were delivered on CD or USB, a media that is easily scratched, corrupted or forgotten.

Despite the best intentions, I saw how these beautiful images, planned for albums and photo projects, got postponed and replaced in priority year after year.

The most valuable lesson I have learned from master photographer mentors, is that

A portrait is completely finished when it is properly, professionally framed.


My studio’s decision to offer only framed portraits and photographs has its benefits:

Beautiful frames that match your room colors, and in custom sizes that fit your spaces beautifully.

Hands-on help for a time-pressed parent, mom or bride to find the images and portraits that bring beautiful energy to the home.

Artwork of archival materials for a unique gift or a lasting legacy for your children.

Making the decision to offer only framed portraits and photographs has its benefits:

Custom Designs: I create beautiful frames that match your room colors, and make them the size that fits beautifully

Easier Decisions: I help a time-pressed parent, mom or bride find the best photographs that can be enjoyed again and again.

Quality Construction: Photography, printing, framing or other presentation is chosen from the best quality materials from the best in our industry for artwork that can be legacies for your children.

I love to make it easy to see the images of your loved ones to enliven your home beautifully. An in-person, in-home visit is just a phone call away.
