  • Photographer

    I've been creating beautiful images since 1998. I started out photographing youth sports, then opened up to babies and children, weddings, family portraits, and of course, high school seniors I discovered early on in my career that quality work and over-the-top customer service is the heart to this business, period. There are a lot of photographers out there doing the same type of work I do. Give me an opportunity to prove to you what customer service is all about, and you'll never go to anyone else. My "iron clad guarantee" is simple. If you are not completely "thrilled" or not just satisfied with my work, you owe my nothing. Zip, nada!

  • Creative, Fun Wedding & Portrait Photographer

    (1 reviews)

    Whether I'm photographing a wedding or a portrait session my approach is similar and my goal is the same - to creatively reveal the energy, passion, vibrant personalities and quirkiness that make you uniquely you and life worth recording. I want your creative portraits to be like a day at the beach not a trip to the dentist. I want you to celebrate life, and I want to be there to capture it. I always photograph with the idea that while you may have hired me today, I'm also photographing for the future you who looks back 10, 20, 30 years down the road to recall these moments, or for your children who pick up a wedding album 15 years from now to get a glimpse of who you were at this point in time.

I do my best to help you create a portrait that is special, personal, and authentic to you. I love what I do, and a huge part of that is getting to know you! I like to meet with my clients before our session either at my studio or your home. I've been know to peek in closets and help plan outfits, look over wall space and generate fun ideas for our photos, or just sit and have coffee while we get to know each other. I look forward to working with you. Let's get started!

  • Portrait & Design Studio

    If you want fabulous, professional portraits that make you and yours look like rock stars, Modern Renaissance is for you. Dana specializes in family and children's portraits with many themes, ideas and professional artist enhancements. She does one-of-a-kind custom specialty portrait art made just for you, indoor at her studio or outdoor on location. Whether you need executive headshots, personality, emotive, real estate, auto, an image portfolio, product photography, performance images, event, a band or need wedding or private boudoir sessions such as pregnancy, bridal, body art, tattoo and lingerie, we will work closely with you to find out exactly how you want to be portrayed and produce the best possible results. Plus, you'll have a good time doing it! I have a love for storytelling, digital media and artistic expression. My pricing is reasonable with the experience and skills I possess. I have collections that fit most budgets, but I can always create custom packages to accommodate your needs. As a former CPI photographer, I've done over 2000 photo shoots in the last few years. I know how to pose everyone, get the giggles and keep it fun and spontaneous as well. I love natural lighting, and I'm willing to travel for it. If you have a spot, home or location you think will be just perfect for the shoot, let's do it! Travel fees and expenses may apply, but I'm worth it. Sessions will have to be shot in the early morning or late afternoon when done outdoors or traveling. For full indoor studio lighting, you will have to visit my studio. We will need take at least a minimum of 15 minutes over the phone to consult what type of shoot you want, what your needs are, who is in it, props if any and to pre-plan our session for most photo shoots. For bigger occasions, weddings and special events, I will ask to meet with you prior to the day. Expect to put down a deposit to guarantee availability. After the session, I enhance each portrait. There is an art to what I do. I am an artist after all. My design turnaround time is typically within 24 hours of the shoot. Weddings and special occasions can take longer. We will set up a time for reviewing them together before the session is over. This ensures you will have a variety to choose from such as classic black and white, retro, modern, natural color and dramatic. I want you to have portraits that look like you just walked off a magazine cover. I use high-end cameras, equipment and professional labs. I expect high quality of myself, the materials I use and for you. If we need to bring in an assistant, hair or makeup artists, we can for additional fees. If you need same-day delivery, please specify ahead of time. It can be done same day on a CD, but it's rare. Most prefer me for my artistic spin and portrait enhancements services. The wait time is worth it. After you leave, enhancements and what older photographers would call darkroom editing and tweaking are done. We will alert you via text, email or social network with a low-resolution portrait with our logo on it. Show them to friends and family on your social networks and share them. Portraits are then posted to our website for viewing, ordering and purchasing as well. The portraits stay locked until we sit down together to view them. I want you to be the first ones to see them. Call me silly but part of the joy and reward of doing my job is watching my clients eyes light up. I enjoy sharing beautiful memories with my clients. I live for it. After we have viewed each portrait, we will choose your favorites, pick print sizes and figure out which collection works for you and your budget. I will then unlock them for your friends and family to order or give you a password if you want them to stay private. Prints can take up to two weeks to be delivered, depending on the specialty art ordered. Weddings even take longer because albums and books are usually involved. I use professional print labs to insure high-quality materials and correct color. They do take longer but again, they are worth it. Once your portraits and full specialty art order arrives, we will call you to come pick them up. You are welcome to drop in to check if they arrived after the due date we gave you. We love seeing our clients so it's all good. As always, drop-ins are welcome but scheduled appointments take priority. Dana Haynes Modern Renaissance, Portrait and Design Studio

    I am a photographer. My first passion was capturing those stolen, candid moments of my friends and family, which translates to my portrait photography. While studying for my BFA in Professional Photography, I quickly learned that I had a great love for shooting all things food, and I continued to study, so that I could confidently add commercial photography to my resume. Contact me with any of your portrait needs and any of your commercial needs for advertising. I am looking forward to meeting you!

    I am a photographer who used to work as a professional lighting designer, and since photos are made of shadow and light, that influences my work. I do portraits, animal photography, photo compositing (Adobe Photoshop, etc.), retouching, and landscape photography. I am new to Illinois and just started volunteering my photography services to two local animal shelters. I take photos of the rescued animals to be used online to get them adopted to new homes. My work Wheels in the Sky was recently seen in a judged art gallery show in Santa Cruz, California. Three of my works will be on view in Fuse at the SVA Gallery on 23rd st NYC October 21 thru mid November.
