River Forest IL Fall Mini Sessions

January 12, 2022

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. :)

Ahh what a glorious day for River Forest IL, fall mini sessions!! It was a much warmer and sunnier day than anticipated which led to some really lovely portraits for this beautiful family of six!

If it’s fall…there is almost a 100% chance that I will ask your kids to throw some leaves. 🙂

I just love that beautiful sunshine glow we got – it was absolutely perfect seventy(!) degree day in early November!

And finishing up with one of my favorite shots of the day. It can sometimes be hard to keep the interest of tweens, especially guys, so this sweet, genuine smile of his was one of my favorites. 🙂

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

Thank you for taking such beautiful pictures of my family. Kristen was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She is very responsive, goes out of her way to learn more about your family and how to help you get the type of pictures you need. I really appreciated how phenomenal she was with working with my children. She sure has a talent to make others feel comfortable with her and excited about getting their pictures taken. The end results were exactly what we were looking for in family photos and she was extremely flexible when working through the editing process. I highly recommend Kristen Hazelton to anyone looking for a great photographer who is easy and enjoyable to work with.
