“I know what it is to take time out of your life to want a beautiful photo that captures that magical moment, and my goal is to make that a reality”

Hi, I’m Abbey! As a longtime lover of the lens, I came to Chicago in 2001 to attend Columbia College and have been here ever since. I turned my love of film into a passion for photography, and now I’m a Chicago family photographer with over a decade of experience in taking photos you’ll love for generations to come.
No matter whether you're searching for classic and timeless photos or you prefer a candid portrait to capture your real-life moments of love and joy, I'm your gal. Your images with me will have beautiful, bold colors with lots of contrast. My goal is to capture your special moments, and I want to help you and your family to feel as comfortable as possible in the process. Is your kiddo throwing a tantrum, or is Grandma Sue a bit camera shy? Never fear! I get it. I’m great at capturing smiles and classic photos, quickly. I work really well with kids and families because of this! 
As a Chicagoan for over 20 years, it’s important to me to give back to my community. Many of my relationships have been created through the wonderful neighborhoods in this city, which is why I hold sessions throughout the year that give back to various local businesses that are near and dear to me. I’ve worked with Nurse’s House, Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association, and most recently, Gigi’s Playhouse. Keep your eye on my Specials page to stay updated and learn more!

When I’m not taking photos, I’m an avid traveler, HUGE animal lover, community sports enthusiast, and mom to 2 twin boys. I live in Berwyn with my wife Alexis and pug Winnie.
