Mary Stanton Corrigan Photography is located both in Chicago's Beverly neighborhood and Beverly Shores, Indiana. Mary services the Chicago Metropolitan area, NW Indiana and SW Michigan Harbor Country beach communities. Mary works primarily with families and their children - from newborns to teens, but is also available for various events and occasions.


From my childhood days, growing up in a large family, and today raising a family of my own, I've learned to value those precious moments that only a family can share; and capturing it in a photo perpetuates that moment for a lifetime. My goal in every photo session is to capture the true personality of my subject at that moment. I strive to capture their expressions of joy through their smiles, those looks of curiosity, and occasionally even their tears, during our time together.

I enjoy photographing children, teens and families in places that are part of their world- the park, your backyard, a playground or a beach setting. My photography style is natural and relaxed. I want you and your child or teen to be at ease and happy during our session so that they are free to be themselves.


Most photo sessions will last between1-2 hours at an agreed upon location. Session fees are for the time and talent of the photographer and are non-refundable; no prints or products are included with this rate. The fee, which is due at the time of the appointment, also includes a pre-session phone consultation, minor editing, processing and private viewing of selected images.

The location of your session can be your backyard, a local park or playground, the beach, or even your child's sporting event. During your pre-session phone consultation we will determine the best location for your photo shoot, discuss clothing choices and I will answer any other questions you may have. Depending upon the location selected, additional travel fees may apply.  Weekday portrait sessions start at $200 for up to 4 people. An additional $25 charge will apply for each additional person over 4. Weekend session fees begin at $275. Extended family sessions begin at $400.

Senior high school sessions are available beginning the spring of Junior year. Session fees start at $150. For more information, call Mary at 312-882-2614.

Head shots for auditions, applications, social media, etc. are also available.


Approximately two weeks after your session, your proofs will be available to review in person or on an online password-protected gallery. I will assist you in making your print and product selections and you will be able to see various product samples and sizes when we meet. If you choose to use the online gallery, it will be available for 14 days, an additional fee will charged for any extension of the gallery.


All Wall Portraits (11x14 and larger) are professionally mounted and lustre coated with an archival UV protectant that provides superior protection against fingerprints and UV exposure, while also visibly enhancing the look of your print. The 8x10 Gift print is also luster coated and mounted. (Lustre coating is optional for all our smaller gift prints.)

In addition to traditional prints, we offer a wide variety of custom products, including Fine Art Canvas, Fine Art Prints, Custom Storyboards, Metal Prints, Float frames, Standouts and more.

Holiday Cards

Most of my clients end the year by sending out one-of-a-kind Christmas or holiday cards featuring one or more of the photos from our session.  Birth announcements, graduation announcements/invitations are available as well.
