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!
