Meet the


Chicago family photographer

Hello there!

My name is Melissa Kusek, and I am a newborn and family photographer. I also specialize in documentary style family films. My inspiration comes from the two little gems in the portrait above. I am a lucky wife and mother to those two cuties. When I'm not playing Mom, I get to spend my time creating lifelong memories for other families. It doesn't get much better than that!


I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and worked as a graphic designer for 8 years before I started this passion project. LibbyLou Images was my baby before babies. I have poured my heart and soul into learning and providing my clients with the best possible portrait/filming experience! Custom photography is unlike any other! It requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with you & your precious family! Your photos will not only become cherished memories, but they will be heirlooms for future generations.
