Agnieszka Wojtowicz

I’m Agnieszka, the face behind WojoImage. I photograph all kinds of love at all stages of life. A pregnancy, a birth story, a newborn baby, children, families, adoption, pets, or just because… I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography, serving the Chicago and Seattle areas. I strive to document families in natural settings and love capturing the raw, real and intimate emotions. I love capturing stories and the people within them and strive to document moments in their purest form.

Fun things about me: I was born in Poland and moved to the Midwest when I was 13 years old. I am happily married to my amazing husband and 6 months ago we became parents to our beautiful baby girl. She’s our whole world! We’ve been together for over ten years and had the opportunity to live in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Washington State and recently moved from Seattle back to Chicago. We currently live in the Chicago area, but travel back to Seattle every few weeks so I’m still booking sessions in Seattle. If I’m not capturing stories for my clients you can find me with my little family traveling, exploring new areas and trying out all the coffee shops the Chicago has to over.

I love adventure and am available to travel!
