Behnke Fine Portraiture’s family of photographers has preserved memories for individuals and kin for more than half a century in a home studio built to provide ideal backdrops. Two acres of surrounding wooded scenery gift clients the opportunity to incorporate natural elements and authentic bunny ears into outdoor photo shoots. Prior to snapping the first image, darkroom artisans Bert and Cindy consult with clients to discuss the location and wardrobe options. Clients then meet with the shutter clickers for 30- to 60-minute relaxed and well-lit posing extravaganzas. During in-studio viewing sessions, Bert and Cindy review photos with clients while analyzing detail and helping to select portraits that will best accentuate mantelpieces or replace unflattering mirrors. Custom 11”x14” prints can be picked up at the studio.
Behnke Fine Portraiture
Husband-and-wife photography team Bert and Cindy Behnke would be formidable competitors—if they didn't run Behnke Fine Portraiture together. Both earned master of photography and photographic craftsman degrees from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), along with numerous accolades. Cindy has been the Illinois and PPA Photographer of the Year, and Bert won the PPA's International Award and served as the organization's president. They strut their shutter-snapping skills at their studio in Mokena, tucked amid 2 acres of wooded areas that give clients a scenic alternative to in-studio shoots.
