A Chat with Rob Oresteen Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
You and your family will be captured in an authentic way with gorgeous light and background. You want a legacy portrait, not something done at the mall. My clients deserve only the best for the prints that will hang on their walls.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love taking pictures of people. It has always fit my personality—the engagement, the reminder that life is good, and we all deserve to have a little fun and do it with photography. My inspirations come from master photographers like the late Richard Avedon and Chicago’s very own Marc Hauser.
What do you love most about your job?
Creating a beautiful, special portrait for someone. It’s magic when you can place a person in front of your camera and see what they don’t. The moment comes to life and is made into a gorgeous legacy print. That moment never gets old.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
During a shoot seeing a mom tear up as she saw her daughter in the back of the camera.
