Sheri Barrette is based in La Grange, Illinois and founded Citybee Studio in 2012. She offers candid, natural light photography for families, events, and businesses in and around Chicago and beyond.

Sheri loves catching life’s important moments in an easy, honest style. Having learned to shoot and develop film in college, film photography still has a strong influence on her aesthetic and the digital work she does for clients. She strives to create images that you will still want to look at years from now; photos that are timeless by the fact that they are in and of the moment — perfectly imperfect, genuine and real.
