Family portraits in Thatcher Woods, River Forest, IL by Oak Park photographer Kristen Hazelton

Hi, I'm Kristen!
I'm a senior portrait, family, and couples' 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. :)

This sweet girl had me work for those smiles in these fall family photos, but it was so worth it! When a client books with me I always send out a client questionnaire because the photos always turn out better when we know each other a bit better and are more comfortable with each other! In this case I learned that the little girl loves Trolls and so I did an extremely silly “troll dance” to break the ice and get some smiles! Success!
