"Renee's patience working with our children is something that I haven't found in any other photographer.

She can be silly, much to the delight of my young children and has the ability to capture the beauty of their personalities through her lens. Her photographs are beautiful, simple and timeless. Our family enjoys each photo session with Renee and look forward to many more."

A Few Q&A’s About Gooch Too Photo & Selecting the Photographer Right for You

You’re a Lifestyle Photographer, what does that mean?

• I capture people/families in a real-life candid and intimate way. Basically, I’m sort of the fly on the wall that gently guides the session and encourages naturalness…by adding thoughtful playful engagement to put everyone at ease.

Can you tell us a little more about your sessions?

• My sessions are both on location and in studio. With either location, you can expect a very easy, comfortable experience, with me connecting with your family and taking photos of each moment, and all the nuances that happen in between.  Each family is unique, which means each photo session is unique. I’ll capture all the goodness and richness that is your family. 

How to decide on the photographer that’s right for you?

• Getting referrals is a great starting off point and with that info, do a little research into their portfolio and whether it fits with your style. When I started photographing families 11 years ago, there were only a few photographers shooting Lifestyle Photography and now there are hundreds, many of whom are great photographers! That being said, we’re all very unique. So ultimately, if you can find someone who has the portfolio that fits what you’re looking for, approaches the photo session in a way that works with your family dynamic, and is within your budget, then you likely found a good match!

Why purchase a session early?

• My calendar fills up quickly for highly desired time slots and/or dates. By pre-purchasing your session, you’re guaranteed to get a spot on the calendar much earlier. Please email Renee at with questions or call @ 312.929.4891.
