Local Sponsor Spotlight – Balee Images, LLC.

by Tracey on April 22, 2016

Listen To Your Mother Chicago was beyond blessed the day we met Brandi Lee of Balee Images, LLC. I’m not sure what fates intervened to put her into our path at the exact right moment we needed her, but we are SO GRATEFUL!

What exactly does a photographer do, right? Snap a few photos, point and shoot? Sounds simple, right? Anybody with an iPhone can do that, so why hire a professional, right?

A professional photographer like Brandi not only brings the trained eye of knowing where and when to snap, but also how and WHY a photograph is a good shot. She brings the show to life for us in not only the posed and “pretty” pictures, but in the candids that capture the behind-the-scenes connections and personality of our show. She tells the story of our storytelling show!

She relaxes us enough to forget that she’s taking our pictures, and that’s when the really juicy photos occur…


At our rehearsals, when emotions run high, Brandi sets everyone at ease and then fades back to let the bonding and rehearsing happen naturally. Because of that ability, she has preserved moments of pure joy and absolute heartbreak that mean the world to us.

Without these shots, I don’t know that I would have retained all of the memories that I have. How do you pay someone back for a recurring gift as large as your treasured memories?


I’m guessing that no amount of “thanks” will ever be enough, but we will continue to try. And so we say to Brandi, THANK  YOU. You are part of the LTYM family, forever and ever and we cannot imagine this journey without you!
