When I'm not photographing special moments, I'm spending time with my awesome family. My husband Mohamed and I are both passionate about photography, and we love traveling the world together. We have a 4-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a 1-year-old, so our vacations are always a little wild, but they're also a lot of fun.
We love trying new foods and exploring new cultures, and we always make sure to bring our cameras along so we can capture our memories. Our oldest daughter is too young to remember, but she's already been to 7 states and 2 countries before the age of one.
If you're looking for a photographer who can capture your family's special moments, whether you're at home or abroad, I'd love to help. Don't hesitate to contact me for a consultation. I'm just a plane ride away!
My love for The Golden Girls is out of this world. You can typically find editing to the sounds of Golden Girl reruns. Don't ask how many themed coffee mugs I have.
My favorite band of all time is Earth, Wind, and Fire! I have been to numerous EWF concerts in Chicago, Nyc and Vegas. Playing September at your wedding? I will sing word for word with you!
We love brunch so much around here that we even had the most perfect brunch wedding at The Langham. Want to meet in person to go over wedding or portrait details? I know the best brunch spots!
Can you believe that Grey's Anatomy is on season 18!? I have consistently watched since season 1! Don't judge!
No matter the season, I can drink piping hot chocolate every night! From Chicago to Paris, I have found some of the best there is. I also learned how to make a really good Italian hot chocolate.
"Chantal captured many beautiful shots that we were comfortable sharing with family and friends. We especially appreciated their patience when we needed breaks, positive attitudes and her relaxed demeanor amid the wedding chaos! "
"Chantal is organized, professional, and extremely talented. She is very knowledgeable about the best locations for the area. Chantal made my husband and I super comfortable at our session. We are glad to have her as a family photographer for years to come!"
"Chantal is a mom, so you know she already has super powers. She brings energy and a gentle kindness to her sessions. She is professional and when the session is over, you will feel like you have a friend for life!"
