As my photography business grows, I’m so happy to serve neighboring communities! While I’m primarily based out of Oak Park, IL, I am delighted to be a photographer for River Forest, Forest Park, Riverside, Elmhurst, Lombard, and Brookfield IL among others!

I love the golden glow on this sweet guy! He was an absolute champ at this photoshoot!
I love it when we get a genuine laugh!
Aren’t they lovely? I absolutely love this Mom’s drapey cardigan!
What? A leaf throwing shot? From Kristen?? No way.
I knew that Mom had a soft spot for her little guy’s freckles, so I made sure we got closeups!
Is there anything better than families playing together?
Well, maybe hugs. 🙂
I’m absolutely in love with the layers in this shot – with the teasel in front with the family and soft cattails and trees in the distance!
Tickle sneak attack by mom!!
Here’s what my clients had to say about their experience!
Kristen was a delight to work with. While I like having family photos, it’s always seemed like torture getting my family to cooperate. However, Kristen came in with great and fun energy right off the bat and got us all smiling and we look natural and happy. She had really great ideas for locations and several options for us to pick from. She knew great spots and the lighting was beautiful. I also appreciated that she helped pose us as we went along. All in all, it was a lovely time and the pictures are gorgeous!!
