A NOTE ABOUT WEDDINGS FROM TRICIA:
I first started photographing weddings about 20 years ago, and I remember being so enamored and influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson, and his ability to capture the "decisive moment". My approach has developed from this. The weddings I've documented have taken me around the world, from Barbados to San Francisco, from Florida to Milwaukee, but mostly in the Chicago area.
When photographing weddings, Emily and I want to convey the joy, the love between the couple, the meticulous details, and the family and friends connection. We offer hourly a la carte photographic services for weddings, including all edited images, or complete packages, with 6, 8, 10 or 12 hour coverage including all edited images, engagement photo and album. The studio also offers parent albums (copies or customized), retouching, small frames and artistic unique wall collections. Please inquire about your date.
A NOTE ABOUT MITZVAHS:
We first began photographing bar and bat mitzvahs for past wedding clients whose children were coming of age. Since then, we’ve photographed these wonderful moments in a young person's life. We love the traditions of the portraits in the temple and with the torah. We love this unique glimpse into young teenager's lives, if even for a day. Packages include 5-6 hours including jpgs and a custom album. Shorter packages including 3 or 4 hours of photography coverage is available. We also offer a separate portrait session for the bar/bat mitzvah, and sometimes with the whole family to be used as decor for the event. Tell us your plans and we'll send a custom quote.
A NOTE ABOUT PORTRAITS:
Our new studio is in the Roscoe Village area, on Belmont between Western and California. Our portrait sittings usually range 1/2 hr up to 1 1/2 hours. For 1 child, we usually find that 1/2 hr is enough. For families with 2 or more children, we suggest an hour appointment.

A NOTE ABOUT MATERNITY PHOTOS:
We understand the joy of expecting a baby. This is a unique time in your life, and it's a great opportunity to commemorate it with an artful portrait of you, and some with your partner. We use a combination of studio lighting and natural light, and also some with hanging diffusion to create a more abstract artful image.
Emily specializes in weddings, newborns, and mitzvahs. She has 15 years of experience capturing the essence of the events, capturing the love and emotion of the day.
A NOTE ABOUT SENIOR PORTRAITS:
As the young people in our lives reached the end of high school, we began photographing these senior portraits. We see the senior portrait session as very much a collaborative effort. We want to hear about you or your teenager and what makes them unique, what their joys and hobbies are. We can incorporate some of those ideas into our photos. Our studio is available for portraits with a variety of backdrops, studio and natural light. We can also suggest a neighborhood, park, beach, or urban setting that would work well for a unique, abstract or meaningful backdrop.
A NOTE ABOUT ENGAGEMENTS:
We offer either a studio or location session for your engagement photos. A session is included with wedding packages. We see this session as a "get to know you" photographically speaking. We suggest photographing in a season opposite from your wedding if timing allows, and in different location than we are discussing for your wedding. We encourage feedback as this will aid us in the wedding day to capture flattering angles, and to listen more to your ideas and wishes for great wedding photography.
A NOTE ABOUT HEADSHOTS:
The basic in studio headshot is $200. I will take 30-50 photos with professional studio lighting and with natural light. We will assist in selecting the best image, and apply some retouching and enhancing your best features. Additional jpgs $50. Allow 20-45 minutes. Most days, we can accommodate same day requests.

All cards are custom designed to compliment your favorite photos from the portrait, wedding, or engagement session.
Thanks for your inquiry. Here is a sampling of photos from BJBE and portraits in my studio and on an “‘urban” location. Emily & I both photographed Emma’s ( girl in teal dress) party.
