3 inspiring photos from last week's sessions

I just want to send a timely and (hopefully) inspiring reminder that the deadline to schedule a Complimentary Weekday Session for this coming summer (now through end of July) is this FRIDAY, JUNE 7th.

Beat the early fall rush for your next family portrait, and you'll be patting yourself on the back come October. ;-)

These sessions are ALSO great for :

  • tweens/young teens about to enter middle school or who are graduating 8th grade, like this budding musician who's headed to freshman year high school this fall  (and check out the jookie Facebook page or the jookie Instagram to see the pics HE took of ME getting to hold his Fender Hagstrom)

  • welcoming new pets to the family, like my awesome fellow small business owners, Dan and Ed of Urban Pooch

  • Mom and kids
  • Dad and kids (Father's Day is June 16th - you could do this as a gift certificate)
  • and three generation portraits - get the Grandparents in on some photo action while they are up north for the summer sun, or while they are in town visiting for a special occasion

OR....just thinking of this one now.... what about a cousins session??? My three sets of niblings here, from my parents' 50th anniversary get-together last year.

In lieu of paying the weekday session fee ($195), you instead pay a deposit toward your wall art. If you want to hear more, send me an email at jill@jookiekids.com.

This special opportunity is for sessions to be photographed and ordered from by end of July. Then we get into August which is one of my busiest months of the year when families like to get in to photograph before school starts.

PS I love this photo of my niblings from 2012, when we were celebrating the birthdays of two of them over Labor Day weekend. Sadie was turning two and Ollie was turning five.

Here they are all lined up to help get that candy out of the piñata. The middle four kids, now 11-13, seemed like SUCH "big kids" at the time - and now I look at this photo and see babies still. Sigh!


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.
