Family Photography

(for here and now)

I am a Chicago-based photographer who specializes in lifestyle family photography with a documentary feel.

Photography for mindful families who view every milestone as equally precious.

You want to remember it all. You want to

celebrate the here and now.

You promise yourself that you won’t forget, that you will find a way to remember it all. You promise that the plethora of photos on your phone will help you hold on to the tiny moments that add up to your precious life.

But you can’t do it all, so you put your phone down and enjoy the moment. Then you remember that you still want to document these days to help everyone remember the magic of the every day, and that you were there, too.

I get you. i've been there. I can help.

Hello, I'm Rossie Schwartz

A lifestyle and documentary family photographer based in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois

There's nothing better than deleting the social media apps on my phone and hitting the road with my boys. We can spend weeks on the northern California coast among the redwoods searching for banana slugs and getting up early to explore tide pools. I look forward to  working your family to capture a glimpse of what makes you come alive.

Great family photos don’t happen by accident. They require your pure, joyful, presence and a willingness to let the moment happen, along with an expert eye with attention to detail and light. That’s where I come in.  

“Rossie is a truly wonderful photographer. The images she delivered are beyond anything I could have imagined.”
