Hello! My name is Regan Baroni and I’m a photographer currently living in Chicago with my husband, Mike and our chubby tabby cat, Ollie. I’m a professional, award-winning food photographer by trade, but have developed a side business shooting documentary-style photography for families… and they’re loving it.
I’ll let them share the rest.
“Regan’s commercial and editorial photography skills provided such an amazing and unique lens to our family portraits. It is exactly what I wanted! There was a mixture of high and low key images and she was able to catch us in unsuspecting yet powerful moments. She made it look so easy and was really great keeping my kids engaged. Her portraits are show stoppers when friends see our photo wall. I look forward to working with her again!”
“Working with Regan is an absolute joy! She captured the essence of my family and my kids’ personalities perfectly. Working with kids isn’t for everyone, but Regan was able to get them to participate in a way that was natural to them. She took gorgeous photos that I will cherish forever.”
“Regan did a family shoot for us in September, ahead of my son’s 5th birthday. I have to admit, I was nervous to pay for a professional photo shoot again. Others have disappointed me in the past. My son has special needs and timing is everything when it comes to capturing him with his eyes open or looking in a particular direction. I was up front with Regan about my concerns and she reassured me from the start.
On the day of the shoot, Regan and her assistant for the day (her awesome husband Mike) met us at the location of my choosing–the shores of Lake Superior. The whole experience was wonderful right from the beginning. There was no pressure to hurry. Regan asked for my ideas and feedback–but really, just let her do her thing. Mike helped get my son to smile and giggle. It is not easy for a special needs Mama to feel relaxed when taking on an outdoor photography session with a wheelchair-bound kid, but Regan made it happen.
She also delivered on the product. We had some sneak peeks almost immediately and all of the photos in an online gallery by the end of the week. I am used to looking for “the photo”; the one that makes it all worth it. With Regan, we had several. My son was all smiles and she also caught some sweet moments between me and him. Did I mention her eye for lighting is amazing? I highly recommend booking a session with her by the water! I received so many compliments on the photos and multiple friends asked where I found her. To top things off, I loved getting the professional prints in the mail, neatly packaged and tied with a ribbon! They were instantly put in frames and hung on our walls! This was a nice bonus because let’s face it, who knows when I would have gotten prints done when left to my own devices.
Thank you again, Regan for capturing Keegan’s sweet smiles in such a stunning way! You really helped me to regain trust in having professional family photos taken. We will cherish them for years to come!”
“We love working with Regan! She pays attention to detail, and the photos are always beautiful! Our kids feel comfortable with Regan during the shoots, and there is no shortage of smiles and giggles. We highly recommend using her for your family photo needs. We look forward to our photo sessions with her!”
“We had such a fun fall photo shoot with Regan! She gave the kids ample opportunity to be themselves, and we ended up with so many beautiful, playful images. I’m happy to have her beautiful work hanging on my walls to enjoy every day!”
“We have used Regan multiple times for our family photos and she has delivered fantastic results for us each time. She has a unique talent for capturing candid moments and was so patient with our little ones while making my shy husband and I confident in front of the camera. We treasure the results from each session and proudly display them all over our home. We were also super impressed with the quality of prints we ordered from her. We would strongly recommend Regan to anyone looking to get unique and beautiful family photos.”
“Working with Regan has been a dream! She is friendly, prompt, and considerate about the desired outcome for the family. She has an amazing eye for creativity and makes suggestions that produce a final product better than imagined.
We have worked with her for over two years and she has been gentle with our infant, but silly & engaging when he grew to be a toddler. She even managed to capture outstanding moments with our wild bulldog included! We could not be more pleased with the photo memories Regan has produced for us! Thank you! XO”
