Emily Cummings Photography

Emily Cummings is an award-winning portrait and commercial photographer based in the Chicago area. Over the last ten years, she has mastered the art of capturing simple, modern photos that exude the natural beauty and authenticity of her subjects. 

Her secret? A thoughtful prep that approaches each client’s photoshoot like a personal branding experience. These days there are so many places where people rely on photography to make a great first impression (think business bios, book covers, blogs, Linkedin/Instagram/Snapchat, even dating profiles). Emily understands that and has built out a pre-shoot process that reflects that reality.

You’ll chat through your goals for the session – from the location to the look and vibe you’re going for to where the photos will be used – aligning on all the key components. She has a stylist to help with wardrobe and a hair and makeup artist on set, so you feel comfortable and confident before you step in front of her camera.

And when you do? You end up with photos that reflect the best version of, well, you.

Matthew Ewald - Newamerican Funding

I am a mortgage banker and broker, with access to multiple banks and lending institutions. What does this mean to you? The best rates and best programs without having to call all the banks yourself. Plus you don't have to worry about the bank being sound financially, because we can always go to another bank without having to start over or worry about losing the house of your dreams. Think of my service like lending tree but with a personal touch and commitment to service. If you or anyone you know is looking for a refinance, cash out equity, have an ARM that is adjusting, a construction loan, commercial loan, lot or land loans or to purchase a new property, I would be happy to provide a consultation.

With my mortgage consultant for life program I include annual mortgage reviews and am personally available to answer home owners questions or provide a valued referral from my network of professional contacts
