Winter Senior Photos | Oak Park, IL

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. :)

Winter senior photos of a college senior in Oak Park, IL

I’m excited (when am I not?) to share these gorgeous winter senior photos with you! You may remember Liliana from her lovely late summer senior portraits; I was so happy for the chance to meet up with her and photograph her again because she’s just so much fun!

I think this expression is called “wry amusement,” and knowing me, I suspect I just got through telling a horrible joke.

Awesome model, awesome sunshine, awesome frozen river? Love it all! This was the only day that was warm enough to shoot before the river thawed, and I’m so glad we were able to see it! It made such a pretty backdrop!

The topic came up over the course of the photoshoot of what we were doing afterward. I mentioned it was Pizza Bagel Day at the Daly Bagel and probably looked like a dork for the amount of enthusiasm I had for it. But let me just say – post photoshoot victory bagels are awesome! And victory burritos, too. We’re always on the hunt for a new burrito place, but our current favorite is Taco Bros with extra green salsa.

Okay but enough about bagels and burritos, can we talk about how amazing Lili looks?

She’d just smoothed her hair when I said, “WAIIIT!!! Do it again!”

I love how much variety we were able to capture on this shoot!

I had to stomp down the snow to make a path out there for her, but even if I hadn’t she was a trooper for giving locations a try!
