"I was extremely pleased with Mark's work. I brought the portraits of our children home and my husband put them right up on our wall. The next morning I saw them when I woke up and they gave me such a happy feeling. It made the house we have lived in for a year and a half finally feel like our HOME. Thanks!"

"My two-year-old son and daughter are still talking about Mark Brown and it's been nearly a year since he took their photos! He was so relaxed with my toddlers that they thought he was just a new friend coming over to play. Before the shoot, Mark took a lot of time and care discussing the locations and flavor of the images we wanted. After the shoot, he presented his work in person in a fabulous slide show set to music."

"Mark is a joy to work with. He photographed my first son at 6 months of age when we lived in Chicago. We now live in Madison, WI and I have driven back to Chicago twice now specifically to have Mark photograph my other two sons....and we will definitely do it again! Mark creates a very relaxed environment and makes the photo session a lot of fun. His pictures always turn out great and are a focal point in our home."

"I discovered Mark Brown Photography with my oldest children 8 years ago. He captured toddler photos of them that I still love today. Recently, our family was surprised with twin baby boys. We returned to Mark for infant photos and a family portrait. This time juggling two small babies proved to be much more challenging with my twin boys crying throughout most of the photo shoot. I was sure we would have nothing to use from it. Imagine my surprise when Mark presented me with many great photos to choose from. I couldn't believe it was the same photo shoot! Mark has an amazing talent for capturing beautiful images of your children that you will cherish for years to come."
–Kris Criscione, Chicago, IL

"Mark's work is simply beautiful and timeless. He captured expressions of my child that I will cherish forever. Mark and his staff are so gracious, friendly...and patient (my son wasn't exactly in his finest moods!) The most beautiful pictures in my house are from Mark Brown Photography. I highly recommend Mark to all of my friends who are looking for photos that they will appreciate for years to come."
–Lisa Souter, Chicago, IL

"I researched lots of photographers for my daughter's portraits, and found none who accomplished a 'relationship portrait' as effectively as you. Your work is unique--it captures the connection between people, not just their images. Thank you for your work."
–Vanessa Griffin, Chicago IL

"Our entire experience with you surpassed our expectations, from the initial sitting appointment, to the end product which is so precious. We love our piece and it is now proudly and endearingly a part of our new home. Thank you for capturing our family so honestly and in such a charming way. It is unique on so many levels and you've done a beautiful job of creating a historical piece, in the sense that you documented precious moments in this very special time in our lives."
