Chicago Lifestyle PhotographY

Specializing in newborn, branding, couples & small wedding photography

An Easy-Going & Enjoyable 

Chicago Photography Experience

Photography captures a moment in time and helps you remember it forever, but some photos take it a step further. Some pictures stir something deeper and touch our souls. The images that mean the most are the authentic ones, the ones that show the glimpses of real life. These are the photos you grab in case of an emergency and pass down to the next generation. My lifestyle photography style is natural, relaxed and (relatively) unposed to mirror your everyday life with an artist's touch. Plus, with flexible sessions, you'll have the time you need to shake off the awkward jitters, feed your newborn or change outfits!

I’m so glad you’re here!

Officially, I'm Kimberly Rensburg, but really I'm just "Kim" once we get past introductions. As a lifestyle photographer in Chicago, I primarily specialize in at-home newborn photo shoots and branding photography. However, I also genuinely enjoy photographing couples and intimate small weddings, such as elopements and micro-weddings. What started as a hobby for me many years ago grew into a sincere love of documenting joy and pivotal life moments for others, whatever those moments may be.


As a wife, mom and business owner, I understand the on-the-go lifestyle. My goal is to give you a picture day that isn't just another checkmark off your to-do list. Your photography experience should be as enjoyable and memorable as the photos themselves. My pricing structure is based on session type, not an hourly rate, removing a looming "end time" so you can breathe, relax and just enjoy being close with those who mean the most. After all, it's hard to "truly" live in the moment if there's a deadline!

I'm happy you've found this space. So, kick up your feet and have a look around. Then, when you're ready, I'm happy to answer any questions you might have! I'm excited to get to know you and learn more about your story.
