Introduction: I service from Chicago to Milwaukee and all points in between. My portable studio can be set up anywhere in minutes and let’s me create professional, studio headshots and portraits on location. I also love photographing in natural, outdoor light for that non-studio look. As the photographer, I have one job, to make you, my client, look your absolute best. Through a mixture of direct and indirect coaching, I help you become more comfortable so your true self, shines through. I never leave you wondering what to do next because I will teach you the poses and looks that work best. It's by working together, as a team, that we will create headshots and portraits that show your confidence and personality. Headshots Whether it’s business, actor, or modeling headshots, we are dedicated to producing headshot photography that will present you at your best. Coaching you along the way, we’ll work together, as a team, to create headshot images that make a great first impression and will help get you noticed. Portraits We specialize in photographing people and capturing those unique, honest moments which make the finest photographs. Be it outdoor portrait photography or studio portraits, producing those captivating, wonderful moments is exactly what we strive for. My greatest joy comes from the happiness my photography brings to my clients. There is nothing more enjoyable than working together with a client, creating beautiful photos, and seeing the joy on a clients face when they see that photo for the first time. I love it when a client tells me that they've never had good photos taken, but these look amazing. That's the best compliment I can receive.

Getting my pictures taken by him was an absolute pleasure! He made it fun while keeping it professional. His photos are amazing. He did my graduation photos and I can't say anything bad about them!

Headshot Photography

Steven was great to work with. We'd never done a photoshoot before, and he walked us through the process. He was patient while coaching us, and it was obvious from the beginning that his primary concern was our satisfaction. He drove a fair distance just for our shoot, and offered to come back for a second session if we ended up not liking the results. No second visit needed, we got exactly what we needed.

Portrait Photography

After reviewing many different photographers' websites, I chose Steven Bourelle for my son's senior photos. He was able to capture some great outdoor pictures of my son, who is not the easiest person to photograph. I received a variety of poses, nicely edited to make my kid look great. I asked for one specific photo to be edited in a slightly different way, and he was able to do it immediately. He cared a great deal about my satisfaction with the photos. I would definitely recommend him!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The client and I communicate either by phone, email, or sometimes even text message. Through this communication, we come up with a plan and cost to get the client what they are looking for in their photos. After the shoot, I get the photos to the client within 5 days. The photos are delivered digitally through an online gallery. The client can then choose which images to download, or order prints directly from the online gallery.

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

    I have been a photographer for over 25 years and specialize in using natural, outdoor light. I have taken classes in studio lighting and now feel just as comfortable working in the studio as I do outdoors. In my headshot photography, I've studied what casting directors look for in actor headshots. I've also taken classes in headshot photography and have had my work critiqued by some of the best headshot photographers around. I have 16+ years experience using Adobe Photoshop to process and retouch images.

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

    For the last 25+ years, I’ve had a camera in my hands. I began as a nature photographer, shooting mountains, sunsets, streams, flowers and anything wild. Several years ago I discovered the enjoyment of portrait photography and a whole new world opened to me. I reinvented myself as a photographer, and I am now dedicated to bringing happiness and joy, through my photos, to my clients.
