Lucky Valentine Nutcrackers Announcement

Lucky Valentine Nutcrackers Announcement

Starting this Saturday, Feb 5th and running through Sat, Feb 26th, at the jookie studio at 4656 N. Rockwell Street, join us for Lucky Valentine Nutcracker Sessions!

It’s been a nutty couple of years and sometimes covid has waylaid our plans, especially the past month. While omicron may have slowed us down, we know the secret to success here at jookie:


Plus, we think fun is always worth the wait. ;-)

We’ve been ordering gorgeous, custom made Nutcracker outfits and tutus from around the world (Russia! Singapore! Paris!) since early December. Many are finally arriving THIS WEEK, JUST IN TIME for some Valentine magic and beyond


Currently, we are booking for girls ages 9 months to 12 years and boys ages 3 to 10.

We will be spreading sessions out over several weeks and offering only 2-3 sessions a day to lower the risk of covid transmission. We are booking sessions on these dates:

Sat, Feb 5th

Thurs, Feb 10th
Fri, Feb 11th
Sat Feb 12th

(No Thurs, Feb 17th)
Fri, Feb 18th
Sat, Feb 19th

Thurs, Feb 24th
Fri, Feb 25th

Complimentary e-Valentines included with every session and a portion of our sales will be donated to a special non-profit to be announced soon.

Email me back at or give the studio a call at 773-463-5665 to get the deets including session fee and our newest wall art offerings.

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 20 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, which we photograph whenever we can fit it into the schedule.
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 ™.
