Learn About Me and My Photography Style

Chicago Photographer Julie Aktabowski
I am a Chicago based photographer specializing in casual, creative, documentary-style portraiture of the beginning with maternity milestone photographs, newborns, babies, children, and families.

About me:

My interest in photography began with a high school photography elective. I loved everything about it, right from the beginning. Back then, everything was film, and I still have my old film developing tank and reels as I’m too sentimental to let them go. My interest continued through my college years at Columbia College, where I earned my B.A. with a major in photography.

I had always preferred shooting portraits, above any other subject matter. So, when I started my own family, my interest in photographing babies and children just seemed to evolve naturally. And of course, there aren’t too many jobs where cuddling a newborn baby, or playing with silly toddlers and children are part of the deal! I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do, and to provide my clients with something that will touch their hearts every time they see it. It’s an honor, really.

My professional achievements include many features on popular photography and baby blogs such as: Rock the Shot, MpixPro, Red Tricycle, Lemonade and Lenses, Mozi Magazine, Evoking You, Confessions of a Prop Junkie, Inspire Me Baby, and many more. This Little Piggy Photography is listed in the top twenty Chicago newborn photographers on Expertise.com. I am a proud supplier of marketing images for MpixPro, as well as a volunteer affiliate of Tiny Sparrow Foundation.
