Thank you for visiting my site. I am not only a photographer but also an artist, dreamer, mother to two little men.
My passion for photography began in high school when I built a camera out of a box and started experimenting in the dark room. Since then, my camera continues to capture scenes from travels, the many little faces belonging to my family and friends, anything pretty, dark, abstract and emotionally moving that comes my way, and moments with my husband and our two sons.
My professional career began by photographing for friends and family. Through referrals and word of mouth, Images by Grace grew into a portfolio of treasured photographs. I find myself being attached to all my images as each one stands alone for its uniqueness in composition and subject.
My style is not traditional and I love the element of surprise when photographing, looking for that special moment through my lens that will capture the true essence of your family.
Your session is photographed in a natural light setting, both indoors and/or outdoors. The location can be in your home or a desired destination within 15 miles of Chicago. Besides family, newborns, and senior photos, I am available for special events such as birthday parties, religious occasions, showers and others. I do not shoot weddings, but know amazing talent in Chicago if you need a referral.
I hope you smile, giggle and feel a tugging of your heart strings when you look at your own photographs.
