Named a Top Chicago Family Photographer

Maggie Rife Ponce has been named a top Chicago family photographer and newborn photographer specializing in unscripted and timeless Chicago family photography and family portraits.

All the feels. so much love for all my families.

Read what my clients think of their Chicago family photos:

I have known Maggie for about 10 years now and have been in front of her camera numerous times. Each time I see Maggie I am taken back by her calm energy, positive attitude and all-around kindness. Not to mention her ability to catch just the right moment and perfect lighting in an instant snap of her camera. Maggie has shot every professional headshot I’ve taken, mine and my husband engagement photos, wedding photos, maternity photos, mother-daughter photos, and family portraits. Each time we shoot with her we are blown away by the outcome. She makes us feel so comfortable, we forget we are even taking pictures half the time! Besides loving her style and eye for photography, I just love being around her! She truly sees the beauty in everything and has a passion for her work.

-Ganek Family

“I worked with Maggie on my family photos and it was such a great experience. She picked a unique location that really fit with my style and allowed my children to feel comfortable and explore. Building off that, she was patient with my kids (1 and 3 at the time) and captured their energy and personalities by allowing them to be themselves without too many staged shots – she rolled with the punches and I really appreciated it. Additionally, she accommodated a quick shoot which was definitely necessary with the kids’ attention span.”

-Howell Family

“Maggie is superb. I found her by looking at the public galleries of many Chicago area photographers, and her photos stood out as “capturing the moment” especially well. And despite having high expectations for our first photoshoot, I was still impressed at how well her photos of our family came out.

She takes great posed and candid photos, knows many great locations, and is able to get our kids to follow directions, which is not an easy task! Maggie has been taking our family photos for four years now, and we could not be happier.”
