Hi! I am Colleen Mae Peslak…

I live in Downer Grove, Illinois with my husband Bill, son, Andrew, and daughter, Brooklyn. I have an amazing step-son, Ryan, who is also a very talented artist! Wait…I can’t forget to mention my adorable blue eyed rescue dog, Lola!   I had you at blue eyes, right?


I’ve loved photography for as long as I can remember; however, it wasn’t until my daughter, Brooklyn was born in 2010 that I really focused on mastering the art.   After stealing my sister’s “good” camera for about a year, it ignited an endless fire in me and led me down this path and allows me to build this family business with my creative rockstar sister, Rebecca!     This business has given us many opportunities to travel across the country and work with some of the most talented and well-known photographers in the world! How lucky are we? #grateful

The absolutely most important thing to me is to capture amazing images, perfectly freeze time, and be the person who provides you with an invaluable memory of you and/or your loved ones! I’m pretty goofy, love to demonstrate posing and talk A LOT, so be prepared to laugh at me and with me!
