I know you're a busy momma, but it's also important for you to stop time, capture and remember what your babies (big or small) are like right now. Right? I get it. I'm a mom too. It is equally important for me to give you beautiful images as it is to make this the most stress free photography experience you have ever had. I know what a gift it is when I open gorgeous images of my baby girl and the session was so easy and delightful.
NO MATTER THE STAGE OF LIFE YOU'RE IN, THERE'S SO MUCH JOY TO BE CAPTURED!

LOOKING FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Because I have been photographing families in the city from the south side to the north side and everywhere in between for almost eight years I know the best places to shoot, places to avoid, and when and where to find the most amazing light. I even have tips about watching the weather, when the spring flowers are in bloom, perfect summer spots and where to find the best fall colors!
With hundreds of families, babies and weddings under my belt, I've mastered the art of getting your wiggly two year old to cooperate, your partner to enjoy the experience and for you to look and feel your best.
Each session includes:
1 to 2 hours s of photography in your home or a location of your choice within the Chicagoland area
An online gallery for you to make the selection of your digital files in the comfort of your home
15 high resolution digital files edited to perfection in color and black and white
ONE DIGITAL FILE
Ten extra digital files
TAKE THEM ALL HOME

You may be one of those families who is blessed with idyllic children who whole-heartedly cooperate throughout every moment of a photo session, we however, are not one of those fortunate families. My 2 boys (who I love dearly) are 100% boys. Darcy has the patience and knack for keeping our little whirlwinds engaged. She keeps our photo shoots fun and is able to miraculously capture beautiful pictures that uniquely showcase the essence and personality of our family.
"My husband and I cannot GUSH enough about Darcy!"
There are so many amazing things I could say about working with Darcy. The overriding themes are her patience, genuine personality, and of course her talent. She genuinely cares, and it is reflected in her work! From helping me to choose our outfits, the weather being a deterrent, and working with my 2 year old son (who hates being photographed), she remained patient throughout it all. I am so happy I found Darcy to work with, and we can't wait for our next photo session!"
"Never before have we had such a fun family photo session, and it is all because of who Darcy is as a person."
When we met Darcy we knew for sure she was the perfect fit for us – she is sweet, funny and genuine – it felt like we had been friends for years! Two years and an engagement, a wedding, a pregnancy and a newborn photo session later – we cannot be happier with the memories Darcy has photographed for us. Each session we have done together has been fun and memorable – she made us feel comfortable and beautiful! We will cherish the photos she has taken of our family forever.
"we cannot be happier with the memories Darcy has photographed for us"
Darcy not only has an incredible eye for shooting the most stunning photos, but she excels at making her clients feel totally and completely comfortable in front of the camera. Her warm personality puts everyone at ease and allows them to giggle and be themselves. She really is the best at capturing authentic moments. You will not be disappointed in your experience and the results. Love her!
"She really is the best at capturing authentic moments"
Darcy took our family photos this fall, and she captured moments that we will cherish forever. We simply cannot pick a favorite! Darcy was easy to work with, responsive when contacted, and great with our son. She made us feel comfortable, and our photos are stunning. I would recommend her to anyone!
"She made us feel comfortable, and our photos are stunning."
She photographed our wedding and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful photos to capture our day. She takes more natural, editorial photos (if you want that style) which is what I was looking for. The day of our wedding Darcy was a superstar. Our photos turned out better than we could have imagined. We'll be hiring Darcy for more photos in the future!
"Darcy is an amazing photographer and the sweetest person!"
