Top Family Photographer in Chicago

Hi, friend. I'm so happy you're here, because it means you value preserving this precious season of life while it lasts. We have that in common, and it's why portrait photography to me is so much more than a pretty photo. It tells a story. I collect the candid giggles, nose-wrinkles, tender touches, and ensure they find a way into your hands and home for you to relive every day. 

I've been photographing people for the last 15 years, exploring every niche from newborns to weddings. In time, I found that my most joyful place is up close and personal with the beautiful humans God created, telling their stories with light-filled emotion and joy. 

There's nothing I'd love more than the honor to know you and tell your story, and hopefully become your new favorite Chicago suburbs photographer (and friend)!

From the very beginning she had so many great ideas and worked with me so well to figure out the looks that I was going for my senior photos. She was able to create the image that I wanted and was so fun to work and shoot with!

"all of MY worries disappeared after working with Charity."


 She was extremely intuitive with her process, user friendly site, and creates an intentional connection with her clients. The consistency in both of my shoots with Charity was exceptional, and she makes sure not to miss a step.

"Picking Charity for engagement photos was the best decision I could’ve ever made!"


She offers style guides, works to find the perfect location, does a photo reveal, and offers quality products for your prints that are hard to find elsewhere. On top of that, she’s such a joy to work with and is so much fun!

"Her whole process from start to finish is unlike other photographers we’ve worked with - in the best way!"


 I felt extremely comfortable with her and loved that she suggested different poses for me. Loved my experience and the photos I received were insanely good!
It was def an 11/10 experience.

"Charity is literally THE BEST! She brought my vision to life, but better!"


 Charity provides such a custom experience from start to finish and did such a wonderful job. She met with us 1:1 to go through images and was able to produce beautiful prints that are now in our home. I highly recommend her!

"I was so excited to receive our stunning prints! They brought me to tears!"
