Elmhurst Photographer | Summer Family Photos

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. :)

Family photos of seven plus a dog by Elmhurst, IL photographer Kristen Hazelton

It was so nice to see this family again!! I took their family photos last summer and was glad to see them again – this family couldn’t be sweeter! It was fun to try out a new location to give them a different look than last year; I’m a photographer based out of Oak Park, IL but am branching out to other areas in the Chicago west suburbs including Forest Park, Elmwood Park, River Forest, Riverside, Oak Brook, Lombard, and Elmhurst!

I’m so glad they brought their dog, Chloe, along for their photos this year! I love it when clients include their pets in their photos – animals are always welcome with me!

Some cute shots of just the sisters…

All three have happy smiles! I’m a sucker for a smiling dog. 🐶

I enjoy getting candid shots to provide a nice variety for clients’ galleries! I just thought the way the oldest (eldest?) brother had his hands on his brothers’ backs was sweet.

What a good looking family!!

Here’s what my client had to say about her (repeat!) experience!

Kristen Hazelton is AMAZING. I am a very busy working mom of 5 teenagers who are rarely seen in one spot together. Kristen accommodated my request of a specific date, and she made everything so easy and quick! From our initial email to payment to our photo session, nothing could have been easier. Kristen was prepared – she knew everyone’s name (there were 7 of us plus a dog!) and she made the session fun and super easy. I highly recommend Kristen Hazelton Photography. This is actually our second year in a row using Kristen – that should speak volumes alone!!!

Kristen Hazelton is an Oak Park, IL (Chicago, IL metro area) and Livermore, CA (San Francisco East Bay Area) senior, family, and engagement photographer. She occasionally photographs in San Diego, CA, Tucson, AZ, and Seattle, WA. You can inquire about your own photoshoot here!
