Hi, I'm Kristen!
I'm an award-winning senior portrait and family photographer based out of Chicago and the San Francisco Bay Area. I love sunshine, cacti, chocolate chips, and a great cup of tea - but most of all I love photographing joyful clients. :)

I loved meeting up with this sweet family for some Scoville Park family photos early one summer morning!

I first met S and the boys about a year ago when we’d just moved to Oak Park and I was touched by how welcoming and friendly she was, especially at a time when we needed friendship the most! Between my job and my husband’s and the moving (2x in 3 months) and schooling and the pregnancy and the pandemic we haven’t ventured out much or met many friends…so when L reached out about doing some family portraits I was delighted to reconnect!

Come see their Scoville Park family photos!

Aww! Big brother put his arm around his little brother totally unprompted, too! These two brothers are sweet and rambunctious and a lot of fun.

One of my favorite shots from this short and sweet session – I love their smiles and that beautiful backlit glow!

I love these ladies. They are both such fun people to hang out with and I’m so glad to be friends with them and their sons!

Also, I just love that morning glow! I was so glad the weather cooperated with us this morning – the weather is SO variable in Illinois, a big difference from the west coast, but that just means scheduling two potential photoshoot days up front so we’ve got a backup in the event of rain. 🙂

Finally, the “Come at me, bro!” prompt. Haha! They were delighted to stop posing and start running!

L and S, I loved meeting up with you at Scoville Park! Thanks for choosing me for your Scoville Park family photos! I hope we are able to spend (socially distanced) time together again soon!

Here’s what my clients had to say about their photos!

“Kristen is a gem! She is so down-to-earth and able to get beautiful shots even with kids who span the spectrum from camera-shy to crazy amount of energy.”
