Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have a knack for capturing natural photos that reflect your personality. You help to decide the best location, and I will help guide you as to the best time. I am very patient with children and adults alike. I never make you feel rushed and will make the session as calm as I can. One thing you will notice is that I will blend in with the family to the point in which you will forget that I am the photographer. If you would like to learn more about my photography style, then please drop me a line and we can meet for coffee. Throughout the years, I have received several awards for my dedication to photography. Most notably, I received an award in June 2010 from Lyons Township for outstanding community service for volunteering and participating in the Littlest Heroes Project. In December 2016, I received an award from the Kankakee Township Fire Protection District for outstanding photography work and dedication in the fire service. In addition, I was honored when, in March 2016 and 2018, I received awards for outstanding performance of photography duties and dedication to the Dwight Fire Protection District.

Johna is an amazing photographer!! She was great with our family! Especially loved that she went with it when my 6 year old wanted to pose us for a couple pictures! ♥️

I found Johna through Thumbtack and chose her, becase I loved her ability to catch the light in her photos. Johna was very friendly, very good with working with my stubborn 5 year old boy, and she was able to catch some beautiful photos on a very limited time span. (a choice made on my end) She delivered our sneak peeks in the time she advised and delivered the rest of our portfolio in the time frame she advised. I highly recommend Johna, and plan to use her again in the future.

Johna Denault


  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My love for photography led me to attend the College of DuPage in 1994 for film photography and in 2008 for digital photography. I have also been a volunteer firefighter since 1996 and have been able to merge these two passions when I became a fire department photographer 3 years ago.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Hello! My name is Johna R. Bradley, and I have been taking professional portraits for 10 years. I started my business in May 2008, although I have had a camera in hand since I was 12.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    My passion for the art of photography has allowed me to broaden the focus of my craft. In addition to my fire department portraits, fire training, and on-scene photographs, I also love to photograph engagements, weddings, children, high school Seniors, and families. I specialize in beautifully edited and lasting, meaningful photographs.
