Chicago Senior Photographer | Fenwick High School

High school senior girl portraits with graduation robes by Chicago senior photographer Kristen Hazelton

I’m so excited to share with you a beautiful Melrose Park senior session! Angelique and I met at the Melrose Park Civic Center (with permission from the Village in This Time of COVID) to capture some gorgeous images of her to celebrate her high school graduation. She paid attention to detail, incorporating not just her graduation regalia but also high school and university swag, and added in some nods to her time at Fenwick High School playing softball and dancing. This girl couldn’t take a bad photo if her life depended on it! What a pleasure to photograph you, Angelique! Thanks for having me as your Chicago Senior Photographer; I hope you have a restful summer and a fantastic time at university starting this fall! You are going to knock it out of the park (see what I did there?). Once a Black Friar, Always a Black Friar. 🙂

Come check out Angelique’s gorgeous senior portraits!

She’s laughing at me 100% because I am saying weird things and trying to come up with dumb jokes to get her to laugh. The laughing is because I’m a doofus, not because I’m actually funny, but hey, that’s part of the Chicago senior photographer job description!

I love photographs in color best and probably deliver 70%+ color, but there’s no denying that taking away the color for a black and white shot lets you focus on different aspects of an image, often the timelessness or the emotions behind the shot.

Here’s what Angelique had to say about her experience!

Kristen Hazelton is an amazing photographer! She shot my senior portraits and they turned out beautiful! She is very quick with her response time if you have any questions. Kristen is very passionate about her work and that shows through her enthusiasm and kindness! I highly recommend her!”

    Wow! Such lovely composition! I especially love the shots of the confetti and the tassle. Very playful and fun.
