December 14th, 2017Extended Family Session | Home for the Holidays | Chicago Family Photographer


Reasons to photograph this coming Christmas holiday:

*Grandpa and Grandma want to have a portrait with their grandkiddos

*Your daughter went off to college a few years ago and your last family portrait was when she was still in middle school

*Your siblings will all be together for the first time since someone’s wedding five years ago

*Because jookie will be open for extended family sessions for the holidays!

That’s right – I’m usually closed over Christmas to New Year’s, but THIS YEAR I’ll be taking some vacation ahead of time so that I can be available for family sessions while you’ve got your loved ones all together.


After my dad went to the Emergency Room recently, I was wondering if the family photo I took over the past summer at my little niece’s first birthday party might be the last one with us all together. THANKFULLY, he’s going to be okay (but he’s got a little bit of a lifestyle change).

I was SO glad I took the time to wrangle everyone together back in July! Some of us were sweaty, a couple of the kids were grumpy, but I pretty much made them do it. And they knew it was important even if we weren’t all at our finest.

Email me at jill@jookiekids.com to set up a phone call to chat more. I’LL HELP YOU MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

Can’t wait to hear from you!
