When women support each other, incredible things happen.

Lemont, Illinois


“Every woman deserves to feel seen with confidence and strength, without losing any of their femininity.”

About us

A woman-owned and operated business located in Lemont, Illinois. Creating beautiful professional and personal images for incredible women since 2016

Photography with heart and connection

Well, I’m here to call you on that bullsh*t.

If you have ever felt intimidated by being in front of a camera I'd love to show you how much better it can be working with a photographer who listens, is open, and connects with who you are as a person and as a woman in business.

I don't just stick you on the other side of my camera and leave you to fend for yourself. Instead, I guide you through a photoshoot that reveals your natural beauty and business badassery. 

I help you feel confident, powerful, and feminine!


Women tell me all the time that they’re not “photogenic”

“Molly's got an eye to bring out women's power and presence, or whatever they're hoping to communicate. And that's a gift. That's a real gift. I think she gets the journey of being female in this world.”

— Dr Kelly Page

SETTING IT UP, BREAKING IT DOWN, AND GENERALLY KICKING A** BEHIND THE SCENES

The spacious and stylish studio is only 35 minutes from the loop just off the freeway with heaps of easy parking and right near the metro station. A short walk will take you into the middle of downtown with its canal views and amazing restaurants.

This makes enjoying a vibrant, creative space where you can be yourself, part of the experience of working with Molly Hebda Photography.



The Molly Hebda Photography studio, located in the historic village of Lemont, Illinois, is a private, comfortable space designed to inspire creativity and free expression.

The Studio

my happy place!

WITH MULTIPLE BACKDROP OPTIONS AND PLACES WITHIN THE STUDIO TO CREATE NEARLY ANY SCENE OR ATMOSPHERE, YOU GET TO JUST WALK IN AND DO YOUR THING.

“I LOVED THAT MOLLY COULD DESIGN THE SPACE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE WHAT I WANTED. WE ORIGINALLY WERE GOING TO SHOOT AT A COWORKING SPACE THAT ENDED UP CLOSING BECAUSE OF COVID-19, BUT MOLLY RECREATED IT IN HER STUDIO. AND ACTUALLY, I THINK IT LOOKED BETTER IN HER STUDIO! SHE MADE IT SO COMFORTABLE AND IT WAS ALL CUSTOMIZED TO THE TYPES OF PICTURES I NEEDED.” 

— Mel McSherry

It wasn’t until I was working for a pole dancing company as a virtual assistant/content creator/producer of shows in Las Vegas and L.A. that the frustration of never having the right images to create content with drove me into the world of photography.

As is my nature, I went all in. I created a business plan, purchased a camera, and two months later I was taking pictures of women in cocktail dresses out in nature. I loved the beauty and feeling of empowerment those images evoked. Now, my business has evolved into creating that same sense of empowerment, confidence, and beauty for women in business. 



Women business owners are often are trying to juggle so much, putting everyone and everything ahead of their needs. Yet they also know that they, themselves, are the key part missing from their company's visual storytelling. This is why I work with women in business to create customized brand imagery that they love and get excited about. 

My story

FOUNDEr, LEAD visionary:

I do not have a typical photography journey, that is to say, I didn’t grow up with a camera in hand. 

Because being successful in business shouldn't mean sacrificing our feminine power.

Imagery that makes them feel proud and confident in the image they are putting out into the world.
