While we all have thousands of photos saved on our phones, there’s still something magical about having printed art featuring the ones you love most on the walls of your home. It allows you to actually freeze those moments in time and remember when you were pregnant with your first baby, those newborn cuddles that just melt into your chest, or when your children were still tiny and snuggly.
From us saying hello to hanging your artwork on your walls, I'll guide you through it all.
summer fun in the feild
I am in love with this outdoor family session in Chicago. We were celebrating their youngest child's six month milestone, and it was amazing to work with this sweet family again. We spent the afternoon playing all the games.
fun one year cake smash
Ella 1 year
As a Chicago family photographer, I find all ages are special enough to document. But a girl only turns one, well, once! Ella was the sweetest little girl for her in-studio one year milestone session. I loved all the variation in movements and interactions throughout this session.
Summer fun at the orchard
There are so many family photographers in Chicago, IL and I'm so glad this family choose me. We planned an early trip to the apple orchard before fall and took advantage of the warmer weather. These made for the perfect holiday cards for this family .
During your in studio styling and planning appointment we will finalize location and choose wardrobe suitable for the setting.
From newborn to plus sizes in a variety of soft color tones, I have something for everyone, including dads!

The entire experience working with Cristina was unlike anything I have had before. From start to finish, Cristina walked us through what to expect, and helped with location and wardrobe styling - Lena was so excited to pick out a dress to wear! On the day of the shoot, she was AMAZING with both of the kids, including making it fun for Lena (which if you know how 3 year olds can be, is not an easy task)
She makes turning your photos into works of art in your home super easy.
Sarah & Jon
It was such a beautiful day, and our experience was emotional yet peaceful. Cristina worked her magic making us look good and feel comfortable for the first time in a long time.
We will always cherish that day embracing our new little family and holding our precious baby Olive while she slept.

Cristina’s photos are hard to put a value on...I have and will always highly recommend Cristina, as she has done at least five separate shoots for me and my new family and will always be my go to photographer for all occasions in her field of work.
