Gleam Photography » Chicago North Shore Baby and Child Photographer


Gleam PhotographyHello!

I’m Olga, a professional children’s photographer in Northfield, serving the Chicago North Shore and surrounding areas.   I am a mom to two beautiful kids, boy and girl, and I am absolutely in love with the art of photographing children and their families.  My love for photography sparked when I was just a kid myself, watching my dad take pictures and develop them in our bathtub.   Fast forward a few years, when I was about 11 years old I bought my first digital camera and began documenting all the beautiful things around me, learning to see and manipulate light along the way.  Then, having my first child, helped ignite my passion for baby photography and take it one step further by starting my business.

With a style that is simple, clean, and a tad romantic, my goal is to capture your child’s personality and genuine emotion.  I am very patient and understand that every newborn, baby, and child requires a unique approach to make them feel special and relaxed in front of my camera.

My sessions are very laid-back, casual, and fun.   As the result, I am able to capture images that are full of life and authentic moments like joy, silliness, surprise, and even pouts.  I won’t ask your kids to force a smile and I certainly won’t leave until I have captured a set of stunning images that will make your heart sing.  I strive to create images that will make you smile every time you look at them.
