Capturing your life....

Seth & I are passionate about capturing your life, your relationships, the start of your marriage, the growth of your family, and any season of life. At the end of the day, we look back at pictures and remember how we loved and how we felt loved. We aim to take those photos. Plenty of photographers out there can take pictures of detail photos, like shoes or flowers, but our goal is to see people. We encourage our clients to talk, laugh, tickle, giggle, shout inappropriate things all to get genuine emotion and smiles from them. We want everyone to look back at the picture and think:

 "Wow, he looks at me like I am the only person in the room." 

                       "I cannot wait to call her my wife."

                                                                  "Remember when her little hands rested on mine so perfectly."

                                                          "I loved watching him become a dad."

                 "There is nothing on earth like my mother's love."

Here on our site you'll see lots of pictures but to keep it operating at a timely speed, the galleries are limited to a few favorite images that showcase our style. The blog will have more pictures and give you a fuller sense of what a wedding or session with us will produce. If you have any questions, please complete the contact form and I'll get back to you with more information. Our packages for portraits, engagements, and weddings always include the high resolution digital images.  We want you to print them and post them all over your house and give them as gifts to your friends and family. It's important to us that you have the pictures to cherish for life! 


I guess if I had to sum up what I want you to know about us it would be this: 

we care about you

We care about your life, your relationship, your family. We care about the commitment you are making. We have been married 13 years and have worked together side by side full time for 10 years. We have had 3 children. We have been through highs and lows and so we look through goggles knowing that you are going to want to have these pictures that capture how life is right now. Maybe not perfectly posed but genuine emotion and fun and happy tears and laughing. We care about your life and we want you to be able to look back at these pictures and go back to these moments because we know you will cherish that in 13 years. We want to get to know you and we ask you lots of questions at your engagement session because we truly care and want you to feel loved and grow together. Seems strange to even suggest that can happen during a photoshoot but you can walk away and truly feel loved and had fun, even if you hate getting your picture taken. We want to make you feel that way and how we approach a shoot is a little different because that's our goal. You'll see...... :) 


Seth and Mary Morris provide photography for weddings, engagement, maternity, lifestyle newborn, family sessions, and senior pictures. We live in Ottawa, Illinois but will travel within the Chicagoland suburbs and central IL. 

Thanks for reading! Hope to get to know you soon!
