Abbey is amazing! We have used her multiple times for an outdoor maternity session, and then two newborn sessions in her Oak Park studio. Her studio has just been expanded and renovated and it is absolutely gorgeous- so light and airy. Abbey is not only great with posing and photographing newborns but also working with energetic toddlers to help get the shots you never thought were possible. I couldn’t recommend her enough!
Shayna Schwartzman
Abbey was wonderful to work with and made our experience great! Our family photos came out very high quality. I would highly recommend her.

I cannot say enough good things about Abbey!!! We initially found her when we were pregnant with our first baby, and now our oldest is almost four. She's photographed our family several times, most recently we did photos at the beach. They are absolutely stunning!! Just beautiful. She captured our family perfectly, and we know these are photos we will be able to hang in our home for years and years to come. She's so easy to work with and really captures such beautiful moments, candid and posed alike. Hire her!!

We have been going to Abigail Joyce for all of our family photo sessions for the last 2 years and have loved each experience. Each photographer we have worked with on the team has made us feel so comfortable which is reflected in the quality of our photos! Our most recent experience was with Abbey (the owner) for a newborn/family session for our second son. She was so patient with us and did an amazing job of capturing the special milestone of growing our family! The quality of the photos is unmatched - I really can’t pick a favorite, they’re all so good! I highly recommend booking Abbey and her team for family pictures!!
Leah Song
We are so grateful to have found Abbey and her photo studio! Abbey has witnessed our family grow and captured so many precious moments for us. Abbey always makes us feel so comfortable during our sessions and really goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is at ease, parent and child alike. She is not only genuine, but detail oriented and an expert at her craft. She has demonstrated an extraordinary ability to adapt to both indoor and outdoor settings as well as perfectly capture the feeling of different life stages of a family. We are always overjoyed whenever we get our photo gallery and amazed at the results. Abbey's photos are a constant source of compliments and it is always a tough decision to choose which ones to print and frame! We look forward to capturing more family moments with Abbey and will continue to recommend her services to others!

This is the second time our family has used Abbey for family photos and they turned out amazing. Her work is timeless and so beautiful. She’s a baby and toddler whisperer. I don’t know how she’s able to get the perfect shots of my rambunctious toddler, but she’s able to do it with ease. Also, the Oak Park studio is gorgeous. Thank you for the beautiful photos our family will cherish for many years to come.
Tammy Chen
We had Abby do our newborn/family photos which turned out incredible!! The photos are so amazing and capture the sweetest moments with our little girl. Abby was so warm and welcoming when we arrived at her gorgeous studio. She made us all feel so comfortable and gave clear instructions to ensure the photos would turn out PERFECT. I cannot wait to book another session with Abby for our family soon!
Nick Bensen
Such a great shoot! We had maternity photos taken of our growing family and Abbey did such a great job of capturing the moments. Even with an energetic toddler, she managed to get great candid shots of our family in the moment. The whole experience was fun and warm. We will be using her for our newborn shoots in the coming months. Highly recommend!

Abbey does such an amazing work! She captured all the sweetest moments and milestones for our family over the years. She also has a selection of beautiful dresses for busy mama to wear for the session, a huge plus for me with two littles. I'll never hesitate to book many more sessions with her!

A Note from Abigail

In 2012 I fell in love with newborn photography. I saw the amazing beauty each newborn brings into this world. Since then, I have dedicated myself to the evolving craft of newborn portraits.

In 2021 I began building a team who values these precious moments as much as I do. We are a dedicated family centered practice for the amazing families of Chicago with studios in Oak Park, IL and Hinsdale, IL.

While we specialize in newborn photography, our practice is a family-centered one, from expecting couples with our maternity sessions to family groups in our Generational Sessions.

We provide maternity photography to our expecting mothers, children photography as your babies quickly grow up, and family portraits as you document each amazing year.

Getting to know you and seeing your story unfold over the years is an amazing journey, and both myself and my team are honored to be apart of it.

Behind the scenes is an amazing team that unites our vision and works to make all this possible. 

I am a PPA member and have joined the NAPCP where we strive to be the best in our field. We're recognized to be a leader in Chicago by MyKidList, Peerspace, Expertise, and more.
