Taken in a very moody Sakrisøy, Norway
Hi, I'm Kristen!
I am a photographer based in Chicago. I have found that photography has combined all of the things that I am most passionate about – food, travel and documenting people’s stories. My work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Thrillist, Chicago Magazine, Zagat, Crain’s and Michigan Avenue Magazine.
I consider it a true honor to be able to capture each person’s story. For every photoshoot, my goal is to make you feel comfortable, best capture your essence and what is most important to you.
Within the food realm, I grew up in a household where we always gathered around it. Food was and still remains the very center of family parties and many fond memories that I have being around loved ones.
Being able to photograph chefs and restaurants in Chicago, all while learning the details and work that go into each dish being prepared is one of my favorite aspects of food photography.
If you don’t live in Chicago, I am more than happy to travel to your destination.
When I’m not editing photos or on a photoshoot, you can usually find me running by the lakefront, planning a trip somewhere or eating out.
