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 portraits, romance, and brand work, but if your project doesn’t fall under those categories, contact me!

A portrait session is a perfect way to explore your personality and interests and translate it into photos that truly capture that spark. Most clients use portrait sessions for professional headshots, to execute a creative concept, or to celebrate milestones like graduations and birthdays! Portrait sessions could take place outside, in a studio, or even at your apartment (post-COVID of course.) 


From the one-person-show to big-name-brand, every business needs (and deserves!) quality, cohesive photos that tell their unique story! I offer one-off shoots scaled to your business to get you started or keep you going, as well as the opportunity to book me longer term so your brand’s imagery stays consistent, updated, and on message. This is more than just product pictures or an updated headshot; it’s an entirely customized suite of photos that will tell your clients exactly who you are and what you do before you even say a word.

I love the idea that someday someone will tell a story about you and your partner, and they’ll 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, holiday cards, announcements, or just some fun updated photos to hang on the wall or share on social media. Getting married? I also offer elopement and wedding packages. Contact me to learn more about my offerings for tying the knot!

"She’s a true collaborator"

"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!"


"so  sweet"

"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!"


"extremely talented"

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.
