Hi, I'm Kristen!
I'm an award-winning senior portrait and family 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. :)

I’m delighted to share a fun spring personal project – my sweet “redbud pixie” daughter with her short haircut amongst some amazing peak-season blooms. I have a tradition of taking photos of my husband and daughter with the redbuds each spring, and this year they were especially magical and I wanted to share. 🙂

Look at those happy smiles!! Makes my heart full just to look at them!

One sweet smile!!

She was so engrossed in looking around and finding the biggest sticks she could find!

Got some sticks, mom!

It was such a beautiful, sunny day! After a long, cold winter we finally had some gorgeous warm and sunny days and all the flowers bloomed at once!

My favorite shots right here. I love how bright and cheerful these images are!
