July 6th, 2018Meet jookie’s New Designer | Lincoln Square Photography Studio | Chicago Kids Photographer


It’s been a non-stop year at jookie so far, in large thanks to the Giant Dose of Inspired Design that our newest employee, Emily (pictured left), is giving us. Of course, Sherrae, who has been at the studio for over a year now, is always keeping the studio in happy spirits with her Good Vibes. I’m so grateful to have the talented help of both these strong, amazing, young women. It’s so true that you can’t do it all alone.

Emily is an immensely talented illustrator and graphic designer who hails from Nashville. She attended the prestigious School of the Art Institute right here in Chi-town. She’ll be at jookie two days a week, making magic with her Wacom tablet, while she runs her freelance biz the other days.

On that note, she IS available for graphic design work. But don’t try to steal her away from me, or else I’ll have to dust off my black belt in Karate. You can check out her work on her website.

Many of you have met Sherrae (pictured right) this past year or talked with her on the phone. She transitioned to our Marketing Assistant and is only at jookie one day a week now while she pursues other work ventures.

Sherrae and I are also working on a Really Fun, Kinda Top Secret, Soon-to-be-Announced (Maybe) SIDE PROJECT that we think will be a blast. At least, we’ve been having a blast with it so far which is probably a good sign.

More on that SIDE PROJECT coming in the next half of 2018, or at least by January 2019. Until then, we’ll keep other things coming at you so stay tuned to our jookie internet waves.

(To see some behind the scenes of our SIDE PROJECT that we shared today (07-05-18), head over to the jookie Instagram page.)





And don’t forget I’m here for your professional portrait needs. jookie is a children’s, family, baby and pet photography studio located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, created in 2006 by me, Jill Liebhaber, veteran Chicago kids and family photographer of 17 years, focused on creating custom art work for homes.

As a professional photography studio in Chicago, jookie serves all nearby neighborhoods such as Lakeview, Bucktown, Ravenswood, Andersonville, Edgewater, Roscoe Village, North Center, Lincoln Park, West Loop, River North, Old Town, Gold Coast, and Downtown. I also have families who come to me for baby, kid, dog, and family photos from the suburbs like LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Evanston, Wilmette, Winnetka, Elmhurst, Oak Park, Kildeer, and also out of state like Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowas, New Hampshire, New York, and California.

I am often asked by jookie parents to create head shots or professional portraits. If I have time to fit it into my schedule, I will!

Gift certificates are available and make a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, anniversaries, and birthdays. They can be for portrait sessions or for camera learning sessions.

jookie specializes in silly serious LOVE ™.
