Peoria Family Photographer | Amy, Derek + Penny

Something that I love that I don’t get to do often is photograph furbabies! My family always had dogs growing up so I know how they really become part of your family. Penny is still a puppy but she was such a good girl and even looked right at the camera for me!

Plus, look how photogenic they all are! We even hit the perfect time of day to get that beautiful golden hour light.

Aakre Family | Millennium Park | Maggie Daley Park | Chicago Family Session

Any Chicago family session will always have a special place in my heart, having grown up a city girl close to Chicago. For a few years now, I have had SO much fun exploring different parts of Chicago with this family! Each year they choose a different part of Chicago to have their session in. This year, we tackled Millennium Park and Maggie Daley Park. I love hanging out with this family every year and I can’t wait to see the adventures we will go on next year!

Fall Mini Sessions – Chicago, Illinois Child & Family Photography

Back by popular demand! I have been asked a few times if I’m having any Fall Mini Sessions so I decided to set aside two dates this Fall for some mini sessions. I have chosen two locations, one in the suburbs and one in the city to try to accommodate everyone. This will be such a beautiful time of year with the leaves changing colors and is a great opportunity to get some updated family photos for your walls or holiday cards.

Here are the details:

September 26th will be held at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL. Available times are: 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30.

October 4th will be held at Museum Campus in Chicago, IL. (This location may change) Available times are: 4:30, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30.

A session fee of $75 is due to reserve your date and time along with a signed session agreement. This post will be updated as session times are filled.

These sessions are perfect for small families, children, and couples. If you have a larger family (5+ people) you may want to purchase two slots back-to-back to allow for more time.

  • Geneva Everett - Hello,

    I was interested to see if you had any appointments left this year for a family session of three (my husband, myself and our daughter who is 2 and a half).

    If so, can you also send the pricing for digital and hard copy prints?

    Thanks.

  • Jamie Langes - Good Afternoon!

    I am interested in reserving the 5:30pm slot for the Morton Arboretum mini-session on Sept. 26th, 2015 if it’s still available. My husband, (almost) 2 year old son and I would be attending the session as first-time clients.

    However, before officially confirming our time / date, I do have a few quick questions on the session:
    1) You note that $75 is to reserve, but the total session would be $150 correct?
    2) Based upon your “investment” tab, I believe that the 10 images are just edited and available for viewing, but that no product / images are included in that $150. Is that accurate? 3) Just for pricing purposes (and it can be a range), when someone purchases an image (the digital rights / copy), what is the typical cost of an edited version from the session?

    If you can let me know on the above as soon as possible, I will be sure to get back to you on reservation of this date / time confirmation as I know that the sessions will go fast!

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    • Joanna - Hi Jamie! The 5:30pm slot just got taken! I do have the 6:30 slot open still if you’d like that one.

      To answer your questions –
      1) The total cost is $150, half is due to book the other half is due the day of your session (or anytime before).
      2) You actually receive the 10 images 🙂
      3) Additional images can be purchased in bundles or individually. I can send you the pricing for add-ons.

      If you want to email me at joannasmithphotos@yahoo.com I’m usually able to respond quicker to emails than I am to messages on here 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Alison Gemkow - We would love the 5p slot on September 26th, if it’s open. Or any other time that day. Let me know,
