I'm Laurie


Hello, it's so lovely to meet you. I am a Chicago Illinois based maternity, newborn, baby, family, and boudoir photographer servicing the southern suburbs.  Areas include but are not limited to Naperville, Homer Glen, Frankfort, New Lenox, Mokena, Hinsdale, Burr Ridge, and Oak Brook areas.
