So nice to meet you!


​I'm Madeleine - mom of two boys + two fur babies + owner of M H Photo Chicago.


M H Photo Chicago was created to make quality photos of you and your life feel  accessible no matter your budget,  working with you to make the experience of photos feel truly worth it, affordable, and fun!


I am a firm believer that everyone is spectacularly photogenic if the person behind the camera takes the time -  finding your best light, capturing the warmth of your smile and the energy of your love as you hold your people close.


Thoughtful consideration of angles, lighting and personality allows me to capture photos of you that make you feel beautiful and confident. My job is to make it difficult for you to choose just one favorite, to want to go out and buy frames, and to love each and every photo in the finished album. Not only for the picture, but for the moment in time.

“Madeleine takes the stress out of family photos and somehow turns it into an enjoyable experience. She’s calm, never makes you feel rushed, and has such a way with kids. She’s captured some amazing memories and milestones for us and I’m always SO happy with the pictures. She’s so easy to work with and has retouched scabs and scrapes on my kids. It’s hard to find a photographer that you like working with AND produces amazing photos and Madeleine delivers both!”

“The kind of photos that make you want to go out and buy frames”

“We almost immediately felt relaxed, and all of the awkwardness of taking photos just kind of melted away - now we have these beautiful photos but also the memorable experience. It was such a fun and special day!”
