Hi I'm Kourtney. You can call me K, Kitty, K-Kat or Kourt! I’m a photographer, director, mama, and maker of things.
I love capturing people in high-energy, spontaneous and joyful situations. My playful-yet-professional approach puts talent at ease so I can create natural, inspired moments.
Working with children is my specialty. I always make sure to have a fun-loving, kid-friendly crew on set. 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'm not working, I'm hanging out with my family at home in the Chicago suburbs. Volunteering is also a big part of my life. I love giving back to my community as both a citizen and a colleague. I'm a member of the Environmental and Health commission for my village, and I'm a board member for the American Photographic Artists Chicago chapter. When time allows, I love hitting the road and heading out west.
