August 6th, 2018On the sixth day of jookie | 12 Days of jookie | 12th Birthday | Lincoln Square Photo Studio


We are halfway through The Twelve Days of jookie! The sixth day is a pretty special one.

You can participate on the jookie Facebook page, or here on the jookie blog if you’re not on social media.

FIRST, make sure you read the basic rules at this blog post, or listed again below.

SECOND, for a chance to win a Weekday Family Session at your home in your yard (a $270 value) PLUS a $150 portrait credit, tell us what some of your favorite memories are of your current house.

NOTE: this is available to families with a yard that is large enough to photograph in and who live within 3 miles of the  jookie studio. If you live further away than 3 miles, you may opt to come to the studio instead, or pay the location fee which starts at $75 and goes higher the further away you live. This is a rain or shine session. If there is bad weather at the time of the session, we will photograph INSIDE of your house with studio lights.

Recommended Artwork: A gorgeous environmental portrait in 30 inch size or larger to fit over a mantle or on a large wall. Pick out the perfect frame and do some creative matting (like the floated mat shown above!) with an amazing framer like our Evanston pals at The Alley Gallery, or local friend Paul of Therieau Art & Frame (who also offers art installation).

All basic rules apply:

If you’re on the jookie email list, you’ll have gotten a sneak preview of all 12 sessions and which days they will be posted. (Please note, we may change any of them without notice, but it’s not likely, or there will be a good reason for it.)

Want to be on the jookie email list, too? Sign up right here.


Each day, starting Wednesday, August 1st, we will post a new type of portrait session to the jookie blog and the jookie Facebook page. They will be types of sessions that Jill has photographed before: family, doggo, location, teens, tweens, toddlers, etc.


First, if you’re participating through social media. “like” and follow the jookie Facebook page. Then simply comment under any of the 12 posts that you’d like to win the session to. (“Likes” to the post won’t count, ONLY COMMENTS.)

If you’re not on Facebook, you can comment under each day’s post here on the jookie blog.

If you choose to comment on any post, your comment will signify that you have read and understood the rules as listed here on the jookie blog.


At the end of the 12 days, we will randomly draw a winner for each day. You may comment under as many days/posts/session types as you’d like to win, but only one session will be awarded per household.

Only comment under the type of session that is appropriate to your family. I.e., if you have a toddler, you can comment under any toddler or family related session type, not a tween or teen session. If you have a dog, you can comment under any dog or family related session type, not a toddler session. You get the idea!


All of the sessions will be for WEEKDAY only. Sessions and other appointments need to be booked Tuesday through Friday AS AVAILABILITY ALLOWS. jookie is by appointment only, and our general hours are Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday 10-5, Thursday 9-6, and Friday 9-5. By the photographer’s choice, some sessions may be allowed outside of those hours.

In-person consult and ordering appointments are required.

Sessions must be photographed by September 28th. They must be ordered from by October 12th or else the $150 portrait credit per session will expire.

You may choose to pay for a Saturday session (if available) and you may still receive the $150 portrait credit (but you forego the value of the weekday session fee).

You will want to book your consult and session as soon as possible. They will be booked on a first come, first served basis, and only through September 28th.

This promotion may not be combined with other special offers or promotions.

Note that some session types, like location ones, will have additional stipulations like the distance they can be redeemed from the studio. See each day’s blog post for additional details besides these.

If you have any questions about this promotion, the jookie experience, or jookie pricing, call the studio at 773-463-5665.

We are moving in the fall and creating a wonderful backyard space. This would be such a nice memory to capture.
