My favorite thing about my job is getting to run wild with my imagination. That’s why my offerings serve as a guideline, not a rule. Do you want to run around the streets of Chicago for your session? You got it! You want me to capture cringe 70’s Christmas card photos for you and your houseplants in a studio? YES, I am here for it! Each session is tailored to every client, making the entire experience flexible and unique. I specialize in lifestyle, fashion, and romance, but if your project doesn’t fall under those categories, contact me!
Lifestyle photography is a perfect way to explore your personality, interests, or brand, and translate it into photos that truly capture your spark. Whether personal or professional, I love capturing moments as they come with gentle guidance, preferring to let your natural magic lead the way. Lifestyle sessions can take place outside, in studio, or even in your home. Invite me into your world, or we can build one together!
Collaborating with stylists, models, brands, and designers to bring a concept to life is thrilling. I'm comfortable ideating a concept from start to finish as both photographer and art director, to collaborating with each individual to allow the editorial or session evolve as we go. You'll usually find me somewhere in-between, with a strong vision for the finish product that allows for fluid and natural evolution through the planning, shooting, and editing process as we bounce ideas off one another and create.
I love the idea that someday you'll tell a story about you and your partner and pull out one of my photos to show how deeply you love one another, or to remember a special time in your life. Couples who book romance sessions are usually looking for engagement photos, custom elopement or intimate wedding packages, announcements, or for something entirely unique to their story. I can't wait to get to know you and translate your vibe as partners into photographs that are uniquely and authentically yours.
"Renata will make you feel so comfortable and at ease with her effervescent love for being behind the camera. She is so generous and genuinely wants to understand your vision. Her photos are bold and impactful, in the best way possible. She’s a true collaborator. I can’t recommend her enough!"
"Renata was so sweet when I met her for our shoot together! She is an absolute pleasure to work with but also her work is incredible! Everyone is always talking about how sexy but gorgeous my Vampire pics are and how my Catwoman pics look cinematic!"
Renata is an extremely talented photographer and editor. Just tell her your ideas and she will turn them into reality. I did 2 shoots with her; Vampire shoot & Indian Cultural shoot and both turned out to be exceptional. Her photography gear is pretty awesome. Highly recommended.
