Snowfall Photoshoot | Oak Park, IL

Snowfall photoshoot in February in Illinois

I’m excited to share this gorgeous SNOWFALL photoshoot with you!! I’ve been doing mini snow photoshoots starting mid-January, and this brave family wanted to do their shoot while significant snow flurries were coming down! We had a bit of snow to wade through to get to a pretty spot, but it was still pretty close to the parking lot (important for snow shoots!) and

Just look at the beautiful snow-covered trees! Photographing *while the snow is falling* has some challenges to overcome, but the results are stunning!! What a perfect backdrop for this gorgeous family!

This sweet shot of mom and her girls is my favorite! Beyond being a stunning family, the snowy backdrop, snow falling and making beautiful bokeh, and that soft light just makes for radiant portraits!

Aww, perfect shots for Valentine’s Day two weeks later! I told these sisters they were A+ snow fairy models! “What’s a model?” One of them asked, “It’s somebody so awesome at getting their photo taken that their job is to get their photo taken!” They were champs!

Here’s what they had to say about their experience!

Kristen is a rockstar. She somehow created beautiful images of my family in the worst snow storm Chicago had seen in 5 years! She also dealt with a crying baby, two crazy toddlers and over a foot of snow to capture some amazing images with grace and professionalism! I will cherish these pictures forever and will definitely use her again! Thank you Kristen!

Thanks so much for doing a snowfall photoshoot with me!! It was wonderful to meet you and I just love how your photos turned out!
