Fall, Family, Illinois

Elmhurst Family Photographer

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 of four with two toddler children, smiling in a grassy field by Elmhurst family photographer Kristen Hazelton

I’m delighted to share these early fall family photos! We were blessed with a warm, sunny day with not a lot of wind. While I’m based out of Oak Park, IL, I’m happy to photograph in many locations around Chicagoland as a Oak Park, River Forest, Riverside, and Elmhurst family photographer. πŸ™‚

If there are grasses at your location, I will always ask you to get in it! Look at that bright and lovely light! I love these happy, natural smiles from everyone!

Such a cute family! The mom is a renowned quilter and fellow small business owner! You can find her modern quilt patterns at SuzyQuilts.com. πŸ™‚

Could this golden glow be any prettier? Sunlight plus golden grasses is one of my favorite ways to get a fall color palette before the leaves really start to turn!

Love this sweet moment between mom and daughter!

How cute are these two with their leaves?! Kristen Hazelton Photography’s signature fall prompt? “Kids, throw leaves!!”

Such a beautiful family!! I’m glad we were able to get some “fall” color for them! I love how their outfit colors reflect their scenery – yellows and dark greens. πŸ™‚

I love the way this little guy just pops against the bright background of the flowers! He has such a cute smile!
