Vicki Baer Ochstein
Vicki grew up in Chicago and spent most of her teenage years in front of the camera, doing print and commercial work. She graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Psychology and was offered a scholarship to New York University where she earned her M.S.W. She is an avid antique jewelry collector and has a unique sense of fashion that cant be replicated.
After the birth of her first son, Aden, Vicki picked up the camera and soon developed another passion and love, this time behind the camera. Her zest for life and ability to “speak” to children of all ages allows her the ability to capture on print what most people cannot. As one of her clients said “anyone can take a picture, but very few people can turn that simple act into art.”
Vicki spent 10 years living in New York City before meeting her husband and moving back to Chicago to be with her family in 2003. She currently lives in Lincoln Park with her husband, Adam, and their four children: Aden, Charlotte, Hunter and Georgia. When she’s not busy snapping photos, she’s running along the lake or perusing the flea markets looking for her latest treasure.
