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. :)

Lilacia Park Senior Photos | Lombard, IL

It’s always a treat to see my Oak Park-River Forest High School KHP Senior Rep, Solana! I took her fall senior portraits late last year and we complemented those shots with these awesome spring Lilacia Park senior photos!

Lilacia Park is in Lombard, IL, about 25 minutes west of Oak Park, IL, and it is absolutely a stunning park! Unsurprisingly it has loads of lilac bushes, but also tons of fancy tulips, daffodils, crabapples, redbuds, and peonies. It’s an absolute delight to photograph there, PARTICULARLY when I have a cheerful and fun senior modeling for me!

It was a real delight to see Solana again! I’ll be seeing her a few more times this year as part of my KHP Senior Rep Team.

The lilacs here were unsurprisingly amazing. We investigated a variety of different lilacs trying to find the ones that smelled best! (Spoiler alert: they all pretty much smelled “best.”)

I love the variety of backdrops at this location!

I love her grin; you can’t help but feel happy around her!

She loved these tulips and wanted a shot in “sea of flowers”!

Here’s what Solana’s mom had to say about the photos!

Kristen is so easy to work with, and takes such beautiful photos! My family and I have had two photo sessions with her, and she also did senior pictures for my daughter. I am extremely pleased with her work. In addition, she is very reasonably priced. Looking forward to the next one! Highly recommend!!

It was so good to see you, Solana! I’m looking forward to your cap-and-gown photoshoot!
