Currently booking for Spring through Fall, 2021
Thank you for visiting. My name is Deena and I am the owner of DGainor Photography. I married my best friend and we live in the Chicago Suburbs with our four kids. I have loved photography since I was a child and my passion has only grown stronger over the years.
My approach to photography is simple. I am a relational person and enjoy getting to know my clients as friends. My desire is to make you feel comfortable and happy. I do not enjoy overly posed, stiff photos, nor do I enjoy overly edited images. Instead, I welcome candid, relaxed shots and lightly edited images to capture genuine moments, laughter, and smiles. At times, I may give you silly prompts that don't make sense, but trust me, there is a reason! My goal is to capture natural photos that highlight whatever it is that makes you unique.
