hi there!

I'm Jennifer Barrer

Im a Chicagoland lifestyle photographer, light chaser, and mom to 2, with huge dreams. Obsessed with: interior design, coffee, and athleisure (fancy name for yoga pants). I've been keeping it fearlessly authentic since 1981. Read on for the rest! 

 I've always loved photography and have had a passion for sharing it. There hasn't been a time in my life that I can look back that I wasn't documenting something, whether it be a family trip, birthday or I was chasing down an amazing sunset after a storm. I look back now and can't even imagine how much my parents spent on film before I had a job to purchase it on myself. My love for the art grew when I received my first big girl DSLR for a wedding present. I took it with me on to Maui and Kauai and to say I was immediately hooked was an understatement. My business organically developed shortly after the birth of  first daughter and my love for photography collided. Her birth propelled my passion to capture every little detail of life.


If you know me, you know I always tend to treasure the little things. I purposely look and see the beauty in life. The laughter, the snuggles, the chaos, the tears, they all have meaning. I want to be there to remind you that ordinary moments are extraordinary. Your family is an original and I would love the opportunity to tell your story in a way that reflects your uniqueness. My goal is to preserve those amazing moments for you, so they can be displayed and cherished relics to hold dear, not forgotten memories.  My hope is that when families look back on their images in 20 years, they not only see what they looked like, but also feel who they were.


If this resonates with you, I'm your girl!

Cant wait to chat!
