Hi I'm Kourtney. You can call me K, Kitty, K-Kat or Kourt! I’m a photographer, mama, and maker of things. Thanks for checking out my website. Capturing people in high-energy, spontaneous and joyful situations is my specialty. My playful yet professional approach allows me to bring out the natural radiance of my subjects. I use my intuition to help put talent at ease and ensure they are creating inspired moments so that I can make the best images possible.
Photographing children is my area of expertise; that's why I always make sure to have a fun-loving, kid-friendly crew on set to get the most out of each child I photograph. Whether it's juice boxes, grab bags or child wranglers who are the bomb, we have tricks up our sleeve (and then some) to make sure the kiddos are ready for action and having a good time. My ultimate goal is to create pictures that feel captured rather than posed. My ability to let kids shine and "be kids" helps make this happen.
When I am not working on my next big photo project, I am holding down the fort and hanging out with my family at my home in the suburbs of Chicago. Volunteering is a big part of my life. I love giving back to my community as a citizen and a colleague. I am honored to serve as a member of the Environmental and Health commission for my village and as a board member for the American Photographic Artists Chicago chapter. When time allows,
I love hitting the road and seeing the world.
