September 26th, 201813th Annual Halloween Photo Fundraiser | Benefitting The Young Center | Lincoln Square Family Photography


SAVE THE DATES: Friday, Oct 26th and Saturday, Oct 27th for our 13th annual Halloween Photo Fundraiser!

Friday will be 9 am to noon and from 3 pm to 5 pm (we’ll possibly open more time slots if demand is high enough), and Saturday, Oct 27th from 9 am to noon.

This year we’re continuing our fundraising efforts from last last year for The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.

You can sign up in advance by clicking HERE!

$40 participation fee per kiddo/parent. Must be in costume. May be photographed individually or as a group.

If it’s a group of 3, each participant will pay $40 so it would be $120 total, and you’ll receive 3 copies of a beautiful 5×7 portrait (regular value $147 value each). If you have three kiddos and they photograph individually, they will each receive 1-5×7 portrait (so 2 total).

Walk-ins will be welcome as space allows. Be prepared for a bit of a wait if it’s after school on Friday or in the earlier morning of Saturday.

The participation fee will be donated 100% from jookie to The Young Center as they work to advocate for the rights and best interests of immigrant children. They serve as trusted allies for children who have arrived in America by themselves and stand for the creation of a dedicated children’s immigrant justice system that ensures the safety and well-being of every child.

Come visit us at jookie on Saturday, and then head off to the rest of the Halloween Happenings festivities in “the square” from 11 am to 2 pm sponsored by our incredible chamber of commerce.

Go here to see last year’s participants and get inspired! Last year, we raised OVER $3800 for The Young Center (through the H’ween event and our Spring promo Kids in the Square combined). We’re looking forward to another successful fundraiser for The Young Center! 

Looking forward to seeing all of the usual suspects again and meeting new families, too!




And don’t forget  jookie is here for your professional portrait needs. jookie is a children’s, high school seniors, family, baby and pet photography studio located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, created in 2006 by 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. We also have families who come 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, Iowa, New Hampshire, New York, and California.

We are often asked by jookie parents to create head shots or professional portraits. If we have time to fit it into my schedule, we 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.
