Bright, clean & timeless images for people who value the simple joys of life. 



& welcome to bridget lynn photography.

I'm Bridget.  And I believe in . . .


celebrating the moment

 freezing for a second the perfect reality of our beautiful lives

crooked smiles & six-year old toothless grins

mischievous twinkles in the eyes of a three year old & sixty year old

popsicle stained lips & smiling eye wrinkles

. . . that photography should be fun, simple & timeless. 

I believe in the power of an image to capture

all the beautiful little details that weave together the tapestry of our lives.

And I would be honored to help you do just that.

Session Types & Pricing


At Bridget Lynn Photography, I strive to capture the beautiful simplicity in a genuine smile, the twinkle in an eye, the mischievous smirk, the real spark of personality
that we all carry deep within ourselves.   

Sessions are relaxed + fun with both formal posing as well as ample unstructured time for 
true personality to shine through.. and for kids to run, play, and be themselves.  

I know how stressful the day of a session can be. I've been there, changing outfit after outfit, last minute diapers and ending up a sweaty mess with a pretend smile on my face. I get it.
It's not fun, and you won't find any of that here.

1. What if my kids don't cooperate?
First, take a breath. It'll be ok. I'm a mom too. I've been there. And your kiddos will be fine. I repeat.. they will be fine. The best thing you can do as parents is to not stress out about it too much. Pretend it's an adventure.  You would be surprised what we can capture with a little creativity & fun. Lots of time is build into sessions to allow for a few meltdowns, snack breaks, and a little running and playing with sticks & dandelions. Yes, your little ones will not get as much sleep as you wanted the night before. They will probably skip their nap too. And of course, they will fall down and have a giant scratch on their face right before you run out the door. Don't worry. I've got you covered. It's nothing that a few good snacks, some great editing, and maybe a bribe or two won't cure.

2. What should we wear? 
Choosing the right clothes is really important, and I have a ton of tips. Also, if you have a full or extended session scheduled, you are always welcome to have a quick chat or shoot me a photo of your planned outfits. 

3. Which session should I pick?
It depends what you're looking for! Want a quick update to capture a child getting a bit older?  Then a mini session works well. Want lots of cozy family images? Then a full session is perfect. It gives us lots of time for everyone to get comfortable, kids to run around and take breaks, and time to capture all different images in multiple settings. Looking to capture grandparent cuddles, have a large family over 6, or multiple families? Then the extended session is the way to go.

4. Where should we have our session?
I did that work for you! I shoot primarily at a specific location in Schaumburg. It is open with room to run for little kids, has multiple settings including various bridges, tall grasses, gazebos, forest, sculptures, and a perfect white rock wall. It has everything we need AND allows dogs! So you can cross this one off your list of worries!

5. What will I receive?
All sessions include fully-edited digital images & printing rights. There are no print requirements or any other hidden fees. A few weeks after your scheduled session, you'll receive a beautiful online gallery which you can share with friends & family, download your digital images, and choose to have certain images professionally printed directly from my lab if desired.

6. When should I schedule a session?
Anytime, but try to remember the time of year for the "look" you're going for. Want bright & airy photos? Try a summer session. Want some moodier images? Try fall. Not sure what you want? Just ask! I'm here to help.

7. How do I pay for a session?
All sessions require a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold your scheduled date. The remainder of the session fee is due on or before your scheduled date. Once we set a date, you will receive one invoice with both of those payment options. You're always welcome to pay by credit card. I also accept Zelle, Paypal, cash or check.

8. Do you offer prints and albums?
Yes! I offer prints, canvases, albums, styrene & lot of other print products. Lots can be ordered directly from your online gallery, and I'm always happy to help create a custom print for you.

My jaw is on the floor! I absolutely love these, Bridget. Thank you for capturing the kiddos so well!!

Kori A.

These (images) are just stunning -  they take my breath away!!
I cannot wait to add them to my walls and have another session with the boys too!

Jessica B.

 I cannot thank you enough. The pictures you took of my family are such a gift. Never did I think we would actually get 21 people to smile. You were patient and extremely accommodating! You understood when a little one needed some time to recover and when a big one was having a diva moment. You made everyone feel comfortable and I never felt rushed. I was especially worried because my little guy sometimes has some attention issues, but nothing riled you! The background and lighting in your pictures just blew me away. One picture is better than next. I just love them! I am so happy we had this experience with you! Can't wait to do it again!

Maysa M.

We hired Bridget to take our engagement photos after hearing very positive things about her work.
The overall experience was fantastic! Bridget is a very calm, creative, and energizing person.  The photos turned out beautiful - we never knew we could look so good! We are so excited and thankful to have these memories!

Chrissy B.

Bridget is such a natural photographer. She was very relaxed with my girls and let them do their thing. While they were just being themselves having fun twirling around and then splashing in puddles, Bridget captured such great expressions. I love the way she uses natural light to really make the pictures pop! I would recommend Bridget to anyone looking for great family/kid pictures.

Sarah R.

Our session with Bridget was such a great experience and we have amazing pictures to show from it! She helped make everyone feel comfortable and at ease while she captured so many special, candid moments. I would highly recommend if you’re looking for great children or family pictures.

Claire H.

Thanks again for a great session and being so patient and accommodating. I can tell you that My Husband was about a gazillion more comfortable with you than the last time we had photos taken- thanks for putting everyone at ease.

Julie D.

We had such a great experience with Bridget! She was so calm, positive, and flexible during the photo session, which is not easy with an uncooperative 2 year old! Along with taking beautiful pictures of my 1 year old son and of our family, she was able to capture my 2 year old’s personality perfectly! We are so pleased with all of our pictures, and we would absolutely recommend Bridget to anyone looking to get family pictures taken!

Sue J.

Bridget, Thank you so much for taking these BEautiful photos of the entire family!  I am sooo happy we did this. I would recommend you to anyone!
