Family life is precious and it flies by so fast...

 

Nowadays, while we have easier access to do-it-yourself photography options than ever, we seem to do less than ever to integrate lasting-quality family photographic images into our lives and homes than ever.tI started Maplewood Studios with a mission and vision to help reconnect your family story with this disappearing appreciation for documenting our family histories with heirloom quality photography. The highs and lows, the triumphs and the losses  —I want Maplewood Photography to become the trusted source to record your family as its story unfolds — in a manner that you’ll be proud to pass on into the future. 

From newborn and toddler portraits and phtography, to grade school birthdays, sports, family events and annual portraits, to and through high school senior portraits, graduations, weddings, retirement, and all the rich pageantry of daily life that passes by so fast in between — I want to become your go-to-source for creating the kind of lasting photographic memories your family will treasure forever.

 

As a father of two toddlers, I see daily how quickly the opportunities to document the stages of their lives come and go...

 

The beauty of establishing a family relationship with Maplewood Photography in Chicago, Beverly is the bond it creates with your family members over time, leading to richer, deeper and more meaningfully lasting photographic images.  Like a toddler who begins to trust the family doctor they’ve seen since their first months of life, I want to help you and your spouse, children and extended family experience a level of comfort and confidence in me that makes family photography something to look forward to. My goal is to shoot your child’s first toddler portraits and then have them excited to be part of your first full-family portrait. I want to bond with your family over time so that Maplewood becomes an automatic thought whenever family life presents opportunities to create lasting photographic memories of your families milestones...

 

My approach to capturing the true inner-spirit of your family is fresh and contemporarily-candid...

 

While it’s accurate to compare my style of service to the old-school family doctor who gave your first shots, helped with your first colds and removed your tonsils...I'm anything but ‘old-school’ when it comes to creating rich photographic images of your family.  Maplewood Photography takes a fresh, contemporarily-candid approach to capturing the true inner-spirit of your family and it’s members with a truly intimate approach to unlocking the kind of magic moments and even micro-expressions that make for truly lasting photographic memories. After all, what’s it all about if we’re not having fun? I want to capture the most accurate, fresh and fun memories you can have, hold, and pass on to the next generation.
