Fall 2014 Session Update

I am SOOOOOOOO overwhelmed by all of my amazing clients!  You all are wonderful, and thank you for *almost* completely booking me up for 2014!!!

All Fall Family Full and Mini Sessions for outdoors are booked!!   If you would like to be put on the wait list, in case of any cancellations since sick kiddos do happen, please EMAIL kristinjphoto@hotmail.com.

ONE session is available for a Tuesday or Wednesday in Late Novemeber, for either a Newborn due Mid to Late November, or if a family would want a session on a weekday, between 10am – 3pm.   will take ONE more session for Late November that must take place on Tues/Wed during this time frame.  Temperatures are usually pretty cold by this time, so cannot guarantee outside weather, but I LOVE doing lifestyle sessions in your home.

I absolutely hate to say no to anyone, whether you are a past, present or future member of the KJP family.  It just kills me to turn anyone away, but in doing so I am saying “yes” to my family to spend some much-needed time with them before Christmas and to celebrate my little man’s first birthday.

Some exciting things!!!

  • Look forward to a KJP Studio in 2015 (Date TBD by the contractor)!   SOOO excited about this and will offer more mini sessions for baby milestones and holidays, so get excited!! Location will be near Ogden and Willow Springs.
  • Spring and Summer sessions are starting to fill!  Never too early to email, and plan 2-3 months in advance to book a session.
  • Fall 2015 dates open up shortly after the Bears schedule is released and book up fast!  I will create special email signup so you can be notified when dates are opened.  Weekends  book up fast and are usually gone by Labor Day so plan ahead!
  • My current fall sessions already know, but for anyone who doesn’t you get some extra love from KJP!  With each session I help customize to you as well as include Family Prep and send you a guide to help with expectations for your session, and most importantly a What to Wear guide!  I get a ton of questions on this, and it truly helps to enhance your session and the images, so I have put a ton of info together including pictures to help.  It’s AWESOME and the results are even better than expected!  Aaahhh!  LOVE!
  • I really promise to keep up with blogging for 2015!!  If you want to see recent sessions since I am super behind now, check them out at proofs.kristinjphoto.com


Again, THANK YOU!!!  Enjoy your fall with your loved ones and looking forward to an amazing 2015!!


Bartolotta Family {Orland Park Family Photographer | Chicago Holy Communion Photographer}

I cannot believe our friends have kiddos taking their first Holy Communion!  It’s such a special time and I am so blessed to be able to capture this time for the Bartolotta family.  We were able to get some great simple and classic shots to commemorate this time, and the second half of the session all three kiddos got to run wild!!  I love mom and dad, and it was so great to meet their kiddos now that they’re older and, might I add, so sweet!


Baby Blythe {La Grange Newborn Photographer}

This shoot may win for shortest commute, (win!) and cutest little family (double win!)!  Baby Blythe (umm LOVE the name!!) was such a sweetie!  The family was literally about to move within the week, and I was so blessed to be able to capture some of their first family moments together.

LOVE how many great posed and lifestyle shots we were able to get, and so happy to have met such a wonderful family!


Chikkerur Belly Shoot {Chicago Maternity Photographer | Chicago Newborn Photographer}

I love how this mama had so many amazing ideas for our shoot!  We had so many that we had to filter through and figure the absolute best options so we could get through as many as we could for our lakefront session.  And of course, after a week of wonderful weather it was FREEZING lakefront, like 40 degrees, but she still rocked her flowing dresses and sandals like a PRO!!

You can just see the love they have for their soon-to-be little lady, and for each other.  <3 melting!  Enjoy these fun little shots and some were even featured on Prop Insanity on Facebook:)


Olkiewicz Family {Downers Grove Family Photographer | La Grange Park Photographer}

Have you ever been to the Morton Arboretum?!? If not, I suggest you make the trip!  It is absolutely gorgeous, and we only saw the smallest fraction of the entire property for this wonderful sunset, albeit cold, spring session!  I am IN LOVE!

We were there to capture Miss Ella who had just turned ONE and we even got to witness her first steps!!! EEEP!!!  And the kicker was by I was rapid-fire shooting so we caught them on camera, in focus, as missy was toddling away!!! AHH!  LOVE!   Also take note, this family did an excellent job styling themselves for the session with accessories and coordinating clothes, which makes the photos just pop that much more.  LOVE too many, so I have a lot to share below…. enjoy!!!
