Like all baby photographers, Steven Kowalski's career began with a heavy dose of rock ‘n’ roll. For three years, he used his camera to capture the up-tempo antics of bands such as Mötley Crüe, Weezer, and Public Enemy. But after more than 300 concerts, Steve decided to settle down and open a Chicago-based photography studio. Steve translated his experience shooting convivial crowds at concerts into expertly photographing family-focused shoots, giving him a unique talent for capturing memorable group shots.

And just as he did with rock stars, Steve uses his camera to capture a baby’s or parent's unique personality. Depending on the client, he can shoot in-studio, at their home, or at locations such as Millennium Park. In addition to babies, Steve also specializes in wedding and fashion photography.

It took the birth of her first child for Alicia Johnson to recognize her passion for photography, as she whiled away her spare time snapping shots of her baby. This newfound hobby triggered the artistic impulses she’d felt her whole life, which have since manifested into a professional photography career spanning the last 16 years. Alicia still cherishes the opportunity to snap pictures of newborns—her favorite subjects—as well as children, families, and high-school seniors. Her calming manner puts infants and adults alike at ease as she harnesses natural light and flattering angles to compose each frame. Alicia’s loft studio in Naperville, located inside the historic Fifth Avenue station, provides chic backdrops and props while on-location shoots let subjects pose against an organic background or favorite tropical-themed screensaver. Alicia’s Photography also offers editing services, as well as traditional prints and images grafted onto canvases, jewelry, iPhone cases, and electronic mediums such as website galleries and DVDs.

Dino Verros realizes that brides and grooms tend to be pretty preoccupied on their wedding days. That’s why the shutterbug mostly stays out of the way during nuptials, unobtrusively snapping series of emotional candid shots. Wedding coverage combines this photojournalistic approach with sessions of traditional posed pictures. The same blend of styles distinguishes Verros Photography’s work during engagement shoots, as well as first communions and baptisms.

At seven locations throughout Chicagoland and northwest Indiana and several international sister sites, Eivan’s photographers and videographers preserve memories with a fusion of traditional, photojournalistic, and candid styles. The company's photographers capture family and engagement portraits and have earned recognition for their personalized touch at weddings.

They took home a win in the photography category of TheKnot.com's Best of Weddings competition in 2011 and 2012 and earned one of WeddingWire's 2012 Bride's Choice Awards. A crew of professional cinematographers records the details of the big day, adding soundtracks and special effects. With color-correction technology, the filmmakers can brighten up dark footage or blot the red out of the bride's cheeks during the maid of honor's toast.

One scroll through photographer Ashley Bonham's portfolio and you'll start to notice a theme. Each photo features either a wide-eyed infant, a smiling kid with missing teeth, or both. That's because Bonham, who decided to pursue a photography career following the birth of her first child, specializes in youth portraits. Along those lines, her studio, Eye Candy Photography, also offers family portraits and wedding photography.

Although Christopher Paul is a professional photographer, he doesn’t like having his picture taken. Since he knows what it’s like to feel a little uncomfortable on the other side of the lens, he spends his time crafting shoots that are as engaging and easy-going as possible for his subjects, whether he’s capturing family portraits, engagement photos, or keepsake wedding stills. Rather than working out of a studio, for example, he always shoots at a location of the subject’s choosing. He prefers shooting outdoors. People not only tend to relax outside, but natural light is far more flattering than that of a flashbulb. He also shows subjects proofs during as they pose, so they aren’t surprised by their final shots.
