Your Photographer
Memories Of...pictures in motion was established in 2008 in Joliet Illinois. We are an on-location portrait photography studio & provide high quality photography with professional artistic editing and printing. My passion comes from the ability to capture time and preserve memories of High School Seniors, Families and Generations.   In Jan. 2019 I was diagnosed with cancer and in March of that same year I had surgery to remove a tumor and the rest of the cancer.  As of Nov 2020 I underwent a 2nd cancer surgery and currently fighting a battle which gives me that passion to help others create memories of their loved ones because as we all know life is too short here on earth.  More and more I read on social networks "I wish we would have taken a family portrait before our loved one passed away".  This just breaks my heart and brings tears to my eyes.   My hope is that it doesn't happen to you and that I would inspire you enough to allow me the opportunity to capture your Memories Of.   

​​When you are ready to take the next step, a free consultation will take place, and when you are ready we will set a date for your memories to be captured.   Once the memories are captured we will spend anywhere from a week to two editing them and invite you back to view them.  We offer 2 packages to choose from and also provide an A la Carte' service as well as the option for digital images.  If you have chosen the prints option the order will be placed and approx. business 3-14 days your prints will arrive (Holiday week or weekend add 3 days).
​Packages start from $449.

A little bit about Tom Kotulski your portrait photographer and creator. I grew up drawing for fun anytime I could.  I attended Triton College for graphic arts and design.   From there I worked at a few print shops which helped me understand more of the design factor.   I am married to my wonderful wife Shannon of 28 years who is also the mother of our three beautiful adult children.   I became involved in photography when sitting at my children's sporting events with an itch to do something while I was there, so I picked up a camera to capture the memories of my children and wound up creating sport collages. It was in 2011 when I received a ton of interest from others asking if I would do portraits, and with the overwhelming response I started.   I look forward to the day that we meet and get the chance to create Memories Of for your family.
