About Us

Our main photographer is Jim DeWane. He is a 1980 graduate of Marian Central Catholic High School in Woodstock. He studied under his father, Bernard DeWane, the founder of DeWane Studio, during high school and after his graduation. The studio has been in business since 1946 and we've photographed thousands of area families.

Jim and his wife Marchell have 4 adult children who've started their own careers. They all have worked in the family business at one time or another with dances, sports or helping out as a cashier.

Jim works well with his clients; he has an easy going, friendly personality that makes our customers feel at ease. We have formed a relationship with many of our customers; we see their families grow from tot to teen years then their most important Wedding Day. Their family history is recorded through our portraits.

Our Staff: Marilyn and Bonnie work hard to assist you in making the best selection for your family and friends. They assemble your pictures whether it is Family, Senior or Sports and are glad to help assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
