lake county photographers

When Little Lake County needs a photographer, these are the professionals we turn to. If you’re looking for excellent photos, you can’t go wrong with one of these choices. We have had a wonderful experience (and beautiful photos) with the following photographers:

Milamemories Photography

Milamemories Photography is based out of Mundelein and specializes in photographing moms-to-be, newborns, children, and families. Mila Aron’s goal is to tell a story through pictures–and not all families have the same story to tell. She takes the time to discover what makes each family unique and creates the whole picture—intermingling her own flair with the family’s vision. Mila is our Locally Grown entrepreneur for May 2017 and recently photographed our editorial team (see photo below.)

JD Event Photography
The photo experts at JD Event Photography specialize in superior portraits for school, dance, and sports programs along with staff and holiday photos.  We absolutely love their PhotoBooth which brings out everyone’s goofy side!  Take a look at some of the PhotoBooth fun we had with JD Event Photography at our Support Your Girls! Event.
