{Chicago Family Photographer | Martina Valekova Photography} Martha & Family

September 18, 2016

Martha is one of my best clients. She does not give me too much notice for when we will be doing our session, but she is always ready. She has some best idea for session, always dressed for the part. When she contacted me for the fall session, it was still warm here in Chicago and the leaves have not turned for fall as much. I had a perfect location in mind ” Waterfall Glen” in Darien. I love sunset sessions, however knowing this location had a lot of shade, we met when the sun was still high in the sky. She came with her family dressed perfectly for the location and the weather. The colors she choose for her family to wear coordinated well, and complemented their skin. We had a lot of fun, and created beautiful memories that I am sure they will cherish forever.

Below are some of the photographs we took.  Chicago Family Photoghraphy Chicago Family photography Chicago Family photography Chicago Family photographyChicago Senior photography Chicago Couples Engagement photographyChicago Family photography

Women should celebrate their pregnancy and keep a memory of it. Being pregnant with a little person inside, that soon you will meet is so special. We offer a variety of dresses for either outdoor sessions or indoor/studio sessions, to take the ease of what to wear. We also have a Makeup/Hair Artist, if you feel you need a makeover, however, I do like when women are more natural with just slight makeup, like lipstick, or mascara on. Trust me, you will be beautiful in your photos. I offer a complimentary consultation prior to booking with me, so you and I can get to know each other, I can understand what you are envisioning on your session, help you with wardrobe, and also, you can try and choose dresses from our closet. The best time to think about your maternity photos is at around 33 weeks, or at 5months up to 7, we could do 8 or 9 months, however, there can be a risk that you may go to a labor sooner and will pass on the maternity photos. 

Family/ Children

Thinking of having some family portraits done? Have not taken a professional photograph of your child or children for some time? I believe we should have professional photos taken at least once a year. Children change so much within one year. I keep updated photographs of my children throughout my home. They show me the progress of how they change and grow.  Let me help you to capture your lifetime memories. One thing I recommend to my clients is to maybe change the season for a change. Do a winter session building snowman, or having a snowball fight, or a fall session by a creek in a park with beautiful colors, playing with leaves. Or maybe spring, picking up flowers, or fishing. And what about those summer days, playing on the beach or in the creek…


Graduating? Getting engaged? Aniversary? or just celebrating your Love?

Let me capture those special moments for you. We can schedule a complimentary consultation prior to booking so you can meet me and see if I am the right fit for you. We can discuss wardrobe, location, the best season for you and your vision of your session. Need help with shopping? I can come with you. Need makeup/hair stylist, I can schedule one for you. I want you to have the best experience while getting beautiful memories you keep for a lifetime.
