Roeckell Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    Thank you for visiting my new blog site. Web site...Blog site, what's the difference? Well, think of the website as a portfolio and the blog as a living, breathing, visual conversation about the latest works from Roeckell Photography.

    I am a photographer, located in Barrington, Illinois, specializing in contemporary lifestyle and portrait photography of children, babies, newborns, maternity and families. I am also available for commercial work and travel. Much of my work is done on location utilizing the beautiful hues of natural light, however I do have a large studio in my home.

    I believe the secret to amazing photos that speak to your heart is allowing the children to be at ease. I let them be themselves in a fun environment were they are free to run, play, snuggle and once in a while stop to pose. My goal is that the images you receive will reveal the true spirit that makes your loved ones unique.

    Sit back, relax and enjoy scrolling through the images. Leave a comment! I enjoy seeing what you have to say. Feel free to send me an email or visit me on facebook if you have any questions.

    It's great to see you here. Thanks for supporting Roeckell Photography.

Welcome the newest member…

Meet Canon (yes as in camera) the newest member of the Roeckell family.  Those of you who know me well are wondering who is examining my head these days, but… how could you not fall in love with this little guy.  We rescued him from an animal shelter.  He was born there and has had a pretty good life so far.  It’s been awhile since we’ve had a dog in the house and I have enjoyed the quiet. At times I think I may have made this decision while intoxicated but I think it will work out well. When I see my kids with him and the joy he has brought us in only two days it has to be a good thing…right?!  My husband has picked our past pets and has chosen small pugs (we’ve had two). This time my son Joe who is 13 and a born dog lover got to choose. (with my help of course) Joe needed a big dog he could love, play with and relate to.  So far we are one big happy family.  Stay tuned.


Francinef - Congratulations! Canon is adorable. Hope he is the easiest Roeckell yet!

Smarties… Barrington Children’s photography

Such a FUN morning in the studio today. Baby number four is on the way and the boys don’t know if they will have  a sister or a brother.  I’m ready with both pink and blue for the newborn session. Can’t wait!

Little brother G wasn’t sure about the wash tub until we filled it with a handful of smarties.  I think little people will do most anything for smarties.  I wonder if they work with husbands?  Worth a try! More to come soon!
