Thanks for stopping by and checking out my studio!

Marita Poll Images is a highly customized boutique photography studio located on the North Shore of Chicago, in Highland Park, Illinois, specializing in portraiture, weddings, and fine art photography.

I have always loved photographic images and the way they capture the character of a person, and a moment in time- like nothing else.  I have always been an artist, first as a kid with my instant camera, and then a little more formally, studying painting, ceramics, and photography and earning a Bachelor of Fine Art degree.  All that time working with film and in the dark room taught me a lot.  

I am a Chicago girl, born and raised in the Windy City (Chicagoans know the reason it's called the Windy City- and where to get good pizza- never hesitate to ask me).  Combining my love of photography and the City of Chicago- taking portraits in and around the city- is always a blast!  I may live north- but I'm a White Sox fan.  When I'm not making portraits, I'm plotting my next travel adventure (check out my travel blog), or hanging out with my my husband, our 3 kids, and basset hound, Nellie

My style is authentic, classic and lovely.  The portraits I create reflect your unique character, and tell the story of who you are right now.  

I work at one of my two studio locations or on location - in and around Chicago and the North Shore.  I've done sessions all around the US- mostly from clients who have moved away from Chicago (gasp!) but still want their Chicago photographer.  I'm available for worldwide travel.

I would love to hear from you.  Be in touch to book your portrait session or plan for your upcoming wedding!
