As a parent myself, I know how quickly our children grow up, and in the blink of an eye, they are off on their own. At Brian McConkey Photography, I want to freeze those moments in time with fun and beautiful Children Portraits so that you can look back with fond memories of your children.

When I take Children Portraits, I want to not only capture the big moments of them growing up, but also the smaller, and no less important every day moments and most importantly their personality. I love looking back at my Children Portraits I have of my two sons and they get a kick out of them as well.

The best Children Portraits are those that are not posed or forced, especially since children have that contagious energy and boundless curiosity. So I do not expect them to sit still for more than a couple of minutes. Instead of making them do things my way, I work with them, energy and all. That way, I can capture the true personalities of your children, and capture the relationships and emotions between everyone.

I will make sure that your kids are at ease and have a fun experience. Please take a look at my Children Portraits Portfolio and call or email Brian McConkey Photography with any questions. Brian McConkey Photography studio is located in River West and I also go on location.

“Brian took beautiful Childrens Portraits of my kids. He has a knack for getting people to feel comfortable in front of the camera. My daughter who’s usually a bit shy, really enjoyed her photo shoot. Brian also shot our Family Portraits and we received so many compliments on our Christmas cards!”
