Hey, Friends! I am Kathleen from Kathleen Virginia Photography

I am so glad you are here! I am a photographer based in the North Chicago Suburbs. I photograph from Lake Bluff down to Chicago and west to Hinsdale. I am a lifestyle newborn, family, and couples photographer. I also have a specialization in interior design and architectural photography.

I am a mom of one and a bonus mom of three. I understand the life of a Mom and capturing your children as they grow. To me, taking photos is something I have always done since I was a teen. I love stopping and trying to make art out of our moving lives around us. I aim to approach each photoshoot from our unique perspective and love for the carefree and joy of living. Whether in Chicago, the suburbs, or beyond, my cameras are an extension of my eyes and heart, and I hope to capture your next photography needs.

My favorite locations to photograph in Chicago North Shore and the City are Chicago Botanic Gardens, Wilmette Beach, Glenview Woods, Chicago River Walk, Lincoln Park Pond, North Avenue Beach, and more.





"She was very patient with us and our 1 year old daughter and made sure we had enough photos that we were happy with. She also did some "casual" headshots for me that I was very happy with. Will use her again!"
