Hi, I am Natalie Navarro.

I am a lifestyle photographer in the Chicagoland area. I specialize in capturing family and children in photos that represent who they are - naturally. I enjoy the laughter, love and bond families and children have with one another and bringing that out during our time together. Each time your image is on a print, it's another point in time that allows you to tell your story.

So what's your story and how do you tell it?

​We've all got a story to tell. Many of us have wonderful, amazing ones and we also have sad tales as well. Our stories are told to our families and friends as encouragement and testament to others. However, they only last a short time - as long as our memories can hold them. 

​You know how they say "a picture is worth a thousand words"? How long do you think your story would last if you had a picture? Our memories will eventually fade, but those pictures can continue to tell a story for generations to come. Do you have your family's story in print? What's holding you back?

Maybe you don't know where to start. Maybe the thought of photography becomes a chore just to find the right photographer and figure out how you want your photos to be taken.  

Let me help you with that. I can help you tell the story that matters to you and your family the most. 

I love to hear how couples met, when they knew each other was "the one", how their wedding was planned and decorated, into the first child then grandkids and then great-grandkids. 

I love to hear those stories about families who were finally able to buy that house and now have a home filled with laughter and love. 

And then there are the many stages of a child's life through the adorable and cute to the terrible twos. No matter where they are, each step is an important one!

​Some of my favorite stories are centered around positive, motivational people that have been dealt life's most cruel cards and are now making a difference in themselves and their lives and they want to tell that story.

Regardless of what it is, we all have something to say and we all need those memories preserved in the best way possible that will ensure generations to come will still hear and see your voice.

“We had a great experience! Natalie worked really well with our child and made her comfortable enough to want to be in front of the camera. The ideas and location of the photos were exactly what we were looking for. The pictures were what we had in mind, and turned out better than we expected. We enjoyed the experience and now have these memories to keep with us forever.”
