The Photographer


Patty Croom


I have enjoyed photography throughout my life.  Growing up on a farm before moving to Northern Illinois, I spent a great deal of time enjoying and photographing landscapes. Several years ago, after doing some work for different people, as a side job, for fun, things began to get busy and I decided to turn my passion into a business. Thus, Patty Pixx Photography was born.

I try to capture the moments, those precious ones, those that cannot be recreated, so that you may enjoy them for a lifetime. I enjoy photographing people in simple ways, raw, and true to who they are and where we are shooting. 

Through this business I have had the pleasure of meeting so many people and exploring different genres of photography. I believe that with anything that is a passion, we must continue to learn, to evolve and to grow. 

When I'm not behind the camera I enjoy spending time with my husband, my 4 children and my 3 grandchildren, as well as  camping, hiking, cycling, taking a class at my local YMCA and cooking and baking for family and friends as well as volunteering with CASA/GAL and raising awareness about childhood sexual abuse.
