Coconut Dolly is an on-location photography service. Capturing your family at locations that mean the most to you.

What can I expect? You can expect an easy, fun and playful session. The best sessions are when kids can be their creative, active, silly and unique selves. The perfect smile, the perfect hair, the perfect pose - does this really showoff your child's personality? Plus, it's no fun for the kids (or parents).

I want a traditional family portrait, is this the place for me? Finding the right photographer that matches your style is so important! Take a peek at my site and see for yourself...if you like my style of family portraits featured then it's a match! My goal is to create honest, interactive, playful and engaging images of your family.

What to wear? Wear comfortable and casual clothing that you can sit and play in — not too matchy-matchy. Coordinating colors and simple patterns are great! Colorful hats and scarves in the winter or flip-flops in the summer, can be fun! If your three year old is going through a fairy princess phase, bring out her tutu and crown! If your 6 year old wants to wear his baseball jersey, let him! Remember, this should not be something the family dreads, but a reason to have fun and capture your unique-you!

Where should we meet? For something a bit more personal, I can meet you at your home. Nothing is more unique to your family than your home. Or, let's celebrate the lovely parks in your neighborhood and embrace the random, but sometimes awesome Chicago weather! I can recommend some great spots, too! However, I prefer to meet at locations that you and your family enjoy spending time at :)
