I have always have gone to Sears or JCPenney for my family pictures. What is Artistic-Personalized photography? Artistic-personalized photography is more of an involved, personalized experience over the cookie cutter chain mass-produced-pose-and-go, standardized style we are often used to. Artistic photography requires commitment from the photographer and the client, careful forethought and planning, and a certain level of investment in time and money. Clients who enjoy getting actively involved in the creation of their families’ memories love not just the artistic outcomes but also the personalized session experience. Many clients choose this experience to mark an annual special event; some opt to have custom photography sessions to celebrate their children’s milestones and many others to spend some quality time with their loved ones, smile and create precious memories. The end result is always fantastic, quality images that speak more than a thousand words. Read our Chicago photography client reviews.
