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, Infants and Cars.   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 Jan 2020 I am still cancer free and following that passion to help others create memories of their loved ones.  More and more I read on social networks "I wish we would've taken a family portrait before they 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 I will spend anywhere from 5-15 hours editing them and invite you back to view them. We offer 4 sessions to choose from and provide the A la Carte' service as well as the option for digital images.  Once you have chosen your options the order will be placed and approx. business 10-14 days your prints will arrive (Holiday week add 3 days). Packages start from $249.

A little bit about Tom Kotulski your portrait photographer and creator. I grew up drawing for fun anytime I could.  I attended Triton College in River Grove, Illinois for graphic arts and design.   From there I worked at a few print shops which helped me understand more of the design factor.   I married a wonderful woman named Shannon 25 years ago who is also the mother of our three beautiful children.   I became more 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.
