Family Photographer in Naperville IILBirthday, Maternity, Anniversary

Are you done snapping the

same photos with similar

posing ALL THE TIME?

You don’t want to be a mediocre photographer and you want to create photos that no one can duplicate. Go from hearing, “I could have taken these photos on my iPhone” to “I can’t wait to share these photos with my friends!”

You've been shooting family sessions for quite some time now and while you absolutely love what you're doing, you can't help but feel like your photos could be better…

Let me guess. you've tried all the strategies to have a smooth, stress-free, and fun session but for some reason, it never turns out quite the way you imagined.

everyone thinks they are a photographer because they own a smartphone. that is, until they experience for themselves the true art of storytelling through your photos. i can teach you how!

I see you over there wearing all the hats, building your business while you chase after the littles, and doing all the right things. You’re working so hard to create something so meaningful...but, it’s time to stop wishing you could take photos that you love or take photos like this photographer or that photographer, and turn your photos that every customer will rave over!


Regardless of where you are in your journey, this one-on-one online coaching is just for you!

You are here to become a better version of yourself.
You are here to become a better version of yourself.
Not to become another me.
But, imagine if...

1. You know exactly what to do during the session and you have full control (and have fun, too).


2. You have detailed posing prompts to walk you through the exact workflow.


3. You know what to say to get natural, relaxed expressions every time.


4. You're able to walk away from every session with a gallery full of images your clients will want to purchase.

But, imagine if...

“My mentoring sessions with Kristen were wonderful! She was so great at getting to know me and what my goals with photography were and then gearing our discussions towards helping me work toward those goals. She shared a lot of personal resources with me that she has created to provide an example of what to email clients, what a style guide can look like, what a model call is, and how to find and contact someone for a model call shoot, and more! She really helped me see what is realistic for my current life circumstances and goals so I focus my time and attention on tasks that will be most beneficial for my business. It was also wonderful getting to know her and making a friend in the photography world!”

Who is this program for?


This is for YOU if…

→You want to transform your photos to the next level this year!


→You want to have confidence in any situation you are in during sessions.


→You want to connect with clients in a more authentic way and serve your clients in a unique way that they want to keep coming back to you.


→You want to stop wasting time trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t work for your business. You want answers tailored to your needs.


→You’ve got great ideas, but don’t know how to execute them and you need someone to show you how to turn those ideas into real action.


This isn’t for YOU if…


→You know what the family session is all about, know how to confidently take pictures with any lighting, and know how to attract dream clients. Go you! Keep showing up.


→You don’t want to grow your business and earn more money. You are okay with the way you are photographing then keep shooting!


→You don’t want to put into the work. Changing what you do now takes a lot of effort mentally and physically. It’s a commitment.


→You don’t want to invest in yourself. Investing feels like throwing the money away, but I’ve learned the most by investing myself.


Hi, I'm Kristen

I’m a lifestyle in-home family and newborn photographer in Chicago.

I am a lover of the connection and emotions of families.

My goal is to elevate your family photography while still staying true to your art and capturing the family’s true emotion.


After taking family photos for a while, I’ve learned how to connect with families at their most comfortable place called home, how to tell stories in the most unique way, and how to make people feel like a million bucks even if they are an ordinary family.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.”

— Chinese Proverb

Why now is the best time to go truly after what you love!


I used to feel SO nervous going to every single new home.

What if I can’t take pretty photos on this particular day.

Do I have to cancel if it’s cloudy?

What if I can’t take the photos the way the family wants?


You know you want photos you love without feeling nervous.
