Hey, I'm Kristen!

I'm a family, senior portrait, and wedding 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 and lively families, high school seniors, and couples. :)

Fall Family Photos River Forest, IL | Oak Park Family Photography

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

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!
