Hi there! My name is Robyn and I am the woman behind Robyn Marie Photography! Photography is my passion and my joy. I grew up loving photography, processing film in my highschool's darkroom and doing studies of light in the studio. In college, I studied photography while getting my business degree. I have since photographed everything from weddings to newborns to landscapes, and since becoming a mom myself, I have found a particular love for documenting families.
My photography style is a blend of traditional portraits and candid moments. Traditional portraits (everyone looking at the camera) are beautiful and wonderful to have, but what I love about the candid moments (also called lifestyle photography) is when you see the image - you feel something. Somehow seeing a photo can make you feel the warm weight of your child's head on your chest or hear their sweet giggles. You aren't thinking about what you wore that day or how your hair looked, instead the image brings you back to a moment.
Our little ones grow too fast and that is why capturing their silly grins, wild spins, and sweet snuggles today is so important. And this is why the lifestyle piece is so much of what I share. Setting the scene and then capturing those special real moments of family is what makes my photography unique and that is what I would love to share with you and your family!
I am based in the northern suburbs of Chicago and am available for family and newborn lifestyle photography in the Lake County and Cook County suburbs including, but not limited to, Libertyville, Gurnee, Vernon Hills, Lake Forest, Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Mundelein, Palatine, Arlington Heights, and Wauconda.
