Rhino Photo

It’s very funny, I shot a photograph of a Rhino at the Little Rock, Arkansas Zoo in 1996 when I was working or the Associated Press.  I keep seeing that photo all over the place, I just saw it in the Houston Chronical.  I have seen it in papers in Europe.  I seemed to be haunted by a photo o a rhino, and that’s a good thing!  What do you think?

5 years in Chicago Social Brides

It’s difficult to believe that I have been working with CS Brides for 5 years already, which means I have been working in Chicago for 11 years now!  Congratulations to Chicago Social Brides on a beautiful 5th anniversary edition and a great launch party.  We all look forward to another 5!

Fall and holiday portraits are in season

Ocken Photography can help you create some pretty darn fantastic personalized holiday cards (if we do say so ourselves, click here for proof!), but it all begins with a portrait session. And since this is the season of getting together, why not have some fun and get your pix for free?

Talk with your friends and family, and as you’re making plans to get together in the coming weeks, consider inviting Ocken Photography to the occasion. Gather two other families, couples, pets, babies, or kids who would like a holiday portrait session–whether that’s in their Halloween costume, decked out for Turkey Day, or in their Christmasy best–and your portrait session will be complementary (when they’re all done on the same day in the same location).

The pictures will be placed online to view, order, and share (you can give them as gifts, you know), or you can purchase the high-res CD of your images from the session.

Once we’ve created the images, Ocken Photography can work with you to design a holiday card that’s sure to garner a prime spot on the mantle at every home it’s sent to. Give us a call or shoot us an email to get your holiday portrait session (with or without the party) on the books!
