Photography for all your milestones 

A fresh, colorful take on classic portrait & event photography

Let's tell your story

The proposal, the wedding, your first home, your child's birth, and all the other milestones you'll experience as your family grows.

These are the moments, the people, and the places that matter. This is the life you're building. It's joyful, sometimes chaotic, but always wonderful -- and it's happening right now!

I offer lifestyle photography in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, helping you capture the unique energy and personality of your family.

You'll come away with a gallery of edited, high resolution photos, and fun memories to last a lifetime.

This is what it's all about

If you're like many people, you shy away from getting professional photos taken because you're anxious about the session itself. Maybe you went to an old-school studio decades ago and barely recognized yourself in the final photos. Or maybe you've got that nagging voice in the back of your head:

No matter what's been holding you back, I'm here to ease your fears about having photos taken. Your shoot should be a fun, stress-free activity that helps you connect with your partner, family, or friends.

First time working with a photographer?

"I'm not photogenic!"
"I don't know how to pose!"
"I'll be embarrassed!"

Let's create together!

It all begins with helping you relax and feel comfortable with me, your surroundings, and the process. I'll get to know you and your family members, and we'll chat about locations, wardrobe, props, and your vision for the shoot.

During your session, I'll give just the right amount of guidance and feedback, and I'll show you pictures as we go so you can be sure we're on the right track.

I have plenty of patience for unexpected twists and turns - after all, they're part of the fun!

Your session should be fun.

Alan is AMAZING! He was our wedding photographer and the photos are beautiful. Alan was so patient with us and posed us beautifully. The creative eye for the photos was something I’ve never seen before and I enjoyed his professionalism over everything.

The photos turned out beautiful! We are so happy to have these shots of our little baby. Alan was on time, brought gear to make our shoot go smoothly (even on a windy rooftop), was playful with our one-year-old and patient when we needed a moment to change a diaper, and delivered beautiful photos in just a few days. We are so happy to have these photos to treasure forever.
