Paul did a wonderful job with my one year old son who is always on the on the move . He let him have time to warm up to the environment, so he would not feel uncomfortable. This is saying a lot about a photographer. Roberta Gritten Staske was just as wonderful reviewing the pictures was so fun! More...
Paul was so great with my son! he was very patient as my son can be very hyper. Roberta was very sweet when we had our review of the pictures!
I loved how well he was able to capture the side of my daughter a lot of people don’t see. She normally very goofy and wild but the moments that were caught while she was serious looked incredible. I would recommend Staske over and over again! More...
Paul was AMAZING with my kids. My two year old is very anxious when she meets new people and with Paul its like it was nothing. She jumped and played around the studio and he made sure it was fun for her. We did our review tonight and the pictures were outstanding! Paul captured both sides of my daughter and did it perfectly. He also captured the love between my two kids and I couldn't have asked for someone better definitely will be doing this again! More...
Cannot say enough good things!!! Paul was so patient and good with my kids! It’s hard dealing with 4 and he made it all so much less stressful for me and they enjoyed it!
Sometimes the expected isn’t what happens, but Paul was very patient and engaging with my boys. They tend to want to run and play, and he’s there to do a job. My past experiences in a studio were not pleasing and I was nervous about their rambunctious behavior. But he put my mind at ease. Thank you so much I look forward to seeing the final product! Here’s a couple from Gabe’s perspective behind the viewfinder. More...
They are great to work with and the pictures are wonderful. We will be getting more done with them. There are several packages to choose from. Very easy going and kid friendly. Best of all very special needs friendly as well. More...
Wonderful place to go. Paul was just amazing with the kiddos. Everyone was laughing from start to finish! Our youngest wasn’t having the greatest day but Paul worked around it and was great with him! Can’t wait to see our pictures!
Roberta and Paul are great to work with! I highly recommend their photography services. The hard part was choosing which images to purchase, they were all amazing! Thank you!

They are great with kids! The hard part is choosing which pictures you love the most. I highly recommend.
Paul is amazing at what he does! We've had photos done twice at Staske and they turned out beautiful both times. Communication with Roberta was effortless and she went out of her way to work around our crazy schedules. I definitely recommend Staske Photography :) More...

They were amazing and had patience with my son that has special needs. They took pictures of him with his events he does and they turned out great.

Both Paul and Roberta are very kind and easy to work with. My daughter loves both of them as well. The quality of work is five star! I would recommend Staske Photography over and over. More...
Paul and Roberta are so easy going and will do anything you want! They did my senior pictures and my wedding pictures and I wouldn't have chosen a different photographer.
I have had two daughter do senior pictures with Staske's. Paul is magnificent! Roberta was so kind and helpful picking out the portraits from the many excellent pictures taken! Wonderful to work with!!
We had senior pics done with Staske twice now and they are amazing! I will recommend them for any and everything!
We won a photo session at the Bridal Expo and Paul and Roberta were fantastic! Paul was very patient with all of us, especially our 4 year old and made everyone feel at ease. We've gotten so many compliments on our photos that we will definitely be back! Thank you Staske Photography! More...
Before my visit, Staske was just the place to go for pictures (and pretty undisputed for that!) I came out of my session extremely satisfied and the pictures were phenomenal! So happy with the entire process; if you're looking for two wonderful, charismatic people who definitely see the best in you, I highly recommend Staske. More...

I love working with Stastke Photography! I never considered another photographer for Sam's Senior pictures! If you're looking for a Professional, cutting edge photographer, you need to work with Paul & Roberta. They are creative, and capture the essence & personality of their subject. I give them a five star rating (out of five) More...
I had a great time working with them, and my portraits are some of the best I've seen. Everything worked so well and they were very accommodating to my schedule.
I was so nervous about getting my engagement pictures done. I always have a fear of my hair being messed up and my shirt laying weird, but Paul made sure every picture was perfect! Roberta knew just how to edit the pictures to make them even more fabulous! I had a very hard time narrowing down all the shots to pick my very favorites. Staske Photography is highly recommended! More...
Absolutely love Paul and Roberta! I just had photos taken of me and my son and they turned out excellent as always! � Paul has taken pictures for me in the past as well and they were just as amazing! Also when viewing the pictures, Roberta makes you feel right at home and helps you decide on the perfect image. Best photography in the area!! More...
The pictures we've had done by Staske Photography have been nothing less than amazing! There are some things in life you put a little extra effort into and spend a little more money on. One of those is capturing key moments in you & your family's lives. We've had them do senior pictures for my kids & family pictures. I highly recommend. More...
My fiance and I won a portrait session at the Bridal Expo in Champaign. We had already had an engagement session elsewhere but decided to let Staske Photography take a shot (several actually ;) ) Paul did a wonderful job taking the photos and Roberta did great at helping us choose our pics and frame. And you wouldn't even know some of our pics were taken at 8 pm in near complete darkness! More...
We had our engagement pictures done by Paul and they are amazing! We love our pictures and cannot wait to have them printed! We are so happy we chose Staske Photography for our engagement session! � Roberta is super friendly and did amazing effects/editing on our pictures!! The price was really good for everything we are getting and the amazing quality of the pictures! Thank you so much Paul and Roberta!! ���� More...

I was hesitant about having professional pictures taken, since they do take some planning and they are an investment. However, there was a special occasion in our family and we decided to go for it. I am very glad we did. We had two set of photos taken (indoors and outdoors) and both came out beautiful and natural, exactly the type of photo we had requested. It was hard deciding which ones to choose (so one should take their time in doing it). Yes, they are an investment, but the process was smooth and the results worth it. More...

I contacted Roberta Staske because I was requesting class photos to be taken for our annual school fundraiser. My deepest hope was that Paul Staske could do one of the class pictures. From the very moment Roberta said, “Don’t ask anyone else, we will do them all,” I knew I had contacted the right person. She was very enthusiastic from the get go. Roberta and I had to coordinate the time that Paul would come to our school to take all 9 grades’ pictures. We were able to do that conveniently via phone, texting, and email. We even had to reschedule due to unforeseen bad weather one time. When Paul came to the school he was very professional and great with the children. With Paul’s expertise we were able to actually take all of the pictures within 2 hours. I was very impressed with the pictures that were provided. Paul and Roberta kindly gave us a CD with all of the pictures so we could frame a large picture for the auction, but also were able to fundraise and sell copies of them to the families as well. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Staske Photography not only for the photos, but for the professionalism and kindness they extended to the school community. More...
Paul and Roberta are one of a kind! Paul has taken my families photos for the last 10 years. He is so very patient with children. Just when you think you are not going to get a good photo of your crying 4 year old, you sit in your viewing session in tears looking at the wonderful memories Paul has created!! Highly recommend him to everyone I know! More...
I couldn't believe how great Paul was with my "shy" son Kane,and enjoyed the show Roberta put on for us! Thank you so much and love,love,love the photos!!!
Hannah Leigh Swarms
The photos were beautiful. Paul and Roberta were very friendly, inviting, and easy to work with!
Great experience from beginning to end. Thank you!
Our photo shoot was terrific! Professional, laid back, humorous... And that was us, lol, but the Staske folks and the dedication, hard work and ability to make us feel comfortable, not to leave out the finished product, 2nd to none!
Just went to pick out prints tonight and I have never had so many awesome pictures to choose from! Can't wait to see the finished product!
I have worked with Roberta and Paul for over 6 years now with them doing my professional shots for my business and my team shots in real estate. When the company I hold my license with offers free photography for our pictures, I normally pass those up as it won't beat the quality and style I like to have for my pictures. I also use them in my not for profit organizations I am involved in. Their pictures are always top notch and they ensure top quality and touches for the best pictures. I highly recommend them. I should also add that Roberta is AWESOME to talk marketing ideas with as she is very creative with some great ideas and references. Creating a good relationship with a photographer can be an advantage as they will know what you want each time, without having to explain it and worry they will not come out the way you need them.
