Oak Park, IL Maternity Photos

October 6, 2021

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. :)

Maternity photos at Lindberg Park by Oak Park, IL photographer Kristen Hazelton

It’s my pleasure to show you these beautiful Oak Park IL maternity photos of my sweet friend and fellow photographer Carla over at Pink Skies Photography. Carla and I connected through Instagram when I first moved to Oak Park and we’ve been good friends ever since! Her sweet baby girl is due in early October and Carla is available to take on clients starting November 2021; so if you’re reading this hunting for a photographer and I’m not the right fit, go on and give Carla’s work a look!

Aren’t they a beautiful family? You may remember them from their fall family photos last year!

One of my favorites from the day for sure!

Baby bump! One question I often hear is, “when’s the right time to take my maternity photos?” The answer is during the beginning of your third trimester! Your baby bump will be showing, hopefully morning sickness will be long gone, and the tiredness of the tail end of the third trimester hasn’t yet kicked in.

Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Carla told me she had an artistic vision of the shoot at Lindberg Park with lots of yellow flowers. She got her wish!
