Top Family Photographer in Chicago

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!


Charity 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 is unlike other photographers I'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 an 11/10 experience and would HIGHLY recommend!

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

Charity did a wonderful job photographing my headshots. Her ability to personalize and mingle with people is phenomenal! She is wonderful at what she does, and is very caring. If you are wondering if Charity is the photographer for you, YES!

"Charity really cares about her clients and what she is doing."

Charity is so much fun to work with! She’s great at posing and catching gorgeous lighting. She helped me create one of a kind [photos] and I hope to continue working with her!

"She has a creative eye and can envision more than I could ever imagine."

 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!


Hi, I'm Charity! A chai-tea drinking, sunshine-loving, mama to one and photographer to friends all over the Chicagoland suburbs. With a love for people and community, my relational nature fuels my heart for serving clients with a deeply personal experience.

From Illinois to California and back, I've been creating portraits for the last 15 years. In time, I found that my most joyful place is up close and personal with the beautiful humans God created, telling your 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 a friend!
