What you'll do
Looking for city candids? Family Portraits? A fashion shoot? A secret proposal? This is your experience! We’ll usually begin at the beautiful Millennium Park, and jump right in to aspects you’d like to capture, though each experience can be a little different. Generally, we capture shots in the park, by the river, and in front of the famous Chicago theatre, but we go wherever your heart desires! You will be looking chic on the streets, and fab beyond the architectural background. One requirement... have some FUN! Photos can be awkward, yes, but also no one is laughing at you when you're having fun! Am I right?? But also, we're in this together, I come with coaching tips. Within 9 days, you will receive 20-35 images for your keeping. For couples, groups larger that 3, or with children, feel free to contact me for special rates! LGBTQ+ welcomed!
I'm a Chicago, freelance photographer with a whole lot of adventure to share! Art feeds my soul, and I love to share it. I'm also an actress, a professional cake decorator (no joke!), a writer, a painter, and avid dancer. Another interesting fact: I used to be in the circus! When I'm not being a Jane of all trades, you can usually find me doing visuals for JCrew, or discovering new coffee shops with my lovely girlfriend, as we work the day away on our laptops. Currently, I work with Google as an events photographer, and take any chance I get to work with freelance clients, or adventure through the loop for architectural shots.

Where you'll be
Each experience can be a little different depending on what you want to see! Usually we will start in Grant and Millennium Park which are both chalked full of creatively, artistic backdrops. As we move on, I would love to capture some "busy city" street portraits to bring this Urban-JungleGym photoshoot to life. And finally, if we can make it down to the river by the end, I would love to incorporate how beautiful the riverwalk is!
Things to keep in mind
For a full refund, cancel at least 7 days before the experience is scheduled to start or within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 3 guests ages 2 and up can attend. No experience needed! Private groups larger than 3 are welcome, as long as a listed session has not been booked by anyone yet. Feel free to message me with your request.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Chicago's crazy weather will likely come into play. In the occurrence of rain, we are still able to shoot. Sometimes the cutest pictures are with an umbrella, so be sure to come prepared!
