We love the new website design!

Lance - 3rd Millenium

As a volunteer for the Burton Chill Program, I had the pleasure of working with Robyn. Her leadership skills, confidence and passion for helping other's made the program a true success. Every session she led a team of 10-15 volunteers. With Robyn leading the group, we were able to provide the children the one-on-one attention needed to develop confidence both on and off the slope.

Amy - Group Account Executive

Robyn is inquisitive, dedicated, and talented. I loved working with Robyn for both her enthusiasm and her quick ability to learn. She is also very detail oriented.

Robyn combines her craft with her art, bringing an eye for design and applying it to websites, emails, landing pages and so on. And the cherry on top — she's fun to work with.

I've know Robyn for a few years and she has done exceptional work for me on several occasions. I could tell right away she has a serious passion for what she's doing and is constantly focused on her client's needs. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks again, Robyn!

Writing this is somewhat bittersweet, because I know that as people learn more about Robyn and Studio R, she'll be harder for me to book!

I have been nothing but pleased with Robyn and her work. She's a joy to have at an event because she adds a bit of levity to those (sometimes awkward) moments right before a photograph is taken -- and the results show through in the work.

Robyn has always been on time, on budget, and has become my first choice for event photography.”

Robyn is a high energy expert professional. She knows her stuff re. Getting the Word Out through various significant channels. She knows the market and how to target accurately.”

Creative eye and she loves what she does! She is fun to work with and be around.

I found Robyn to be eager to truly understand what clients are looking for so that she can exceed their expecations.

Robyn has always been great to work with. I have hired her for personal and business photography needs. Each job exceeded my expectations! Robyn has a creative eye and is so much fun to work with. I look forward to having another project to work with her on again. She is always such a pleasure to work with!! I would highly recommend her!

Robyn is wonderful to work with from beginning to end!

Robyn is a easy to work with and stands by her word. She treats her clients with respect and gets the job done often better than originally asked from her.

I've known Robyn both as her professor at Columbia College Chicago, and later, have enjoyed working with her as a client of Vroom(tm), my company's web solution for businesses.

Robyn's photography has always been top notch, matched by her professionalism and a down to earth, friendly vibe that makes her a pleasure to be around. Behind that smile is a creative tiger ready to deliver. I look forward to a continued professional relationship and recommend her without qualification.

Special Thanks & Dedication:

During some of the most horrific tragedies I've ever had to face there were two people who walked into my life and saved me by taking me snowboarding. They taught me about life rather than taking away from it. For this I'll forever be grateful.

While continuing my long struggle to recover from these tragedies two more amazing people came into my life, opened my eyes and showed me what I'm truly capable of... They saw what i didn't see.

I'm truly grateful for everyone who's been there for me, but these four special friends will forever hold a place in my heart for being catalysts to my rebirth.

J, J, B and especially M...thank you from the bottom of my heart!
