Welcome! My name is Kathleen Virginia Williams, and I’d be so excited to capture your life. I lived in the city of Chicago for 7 years, but now I live in a northern suburb, Grayslake. I live with my Husband Ashley and three stepchildren. I love my job as a Chicagoland freelance photographer, and you usually can find a camera in my hand even when I am not working. (I often have to be asked to stop taking pictures, just follow my personal Instagram @kathleenvirginiawilliams). Some other things that I love: cooking, bike rides, gardening, adventures, dancing (some call my dancing hopping), design, a great movie, and the Blackhawks. Feel free to chat about any of this with me at any time 😉 I am also half Irish/English and have a HUGE family. I love them all so much, but I also had no idea that capturing all of them and our fun family dynamics for years prepared me for my job today. I will make sure to capture everyone at their best. I also grew up around my father an architect and my mother an interior designer, so I also LOVE to capture design. Overall my passion is to work with great people and to capture their vision. I hope you enjoy the light I see in the world!
Other interesting facts about me:
I am an active member of the Junior League of Chicago. That includes being a co-chair of a committed & I have also chosen to donate my photography to capture their amazing events. I wish I could donate more photography to everyone, but I am already donating about $4,000 worth of work a year and that is a lot!
Fun fact time! I am actually a fifth-generation Chicagoan! My family came over from Ireland and shortly there after they found themselves in Chicago. I am so thankful I have countless cousins, aunts, uncles and friends in Chicago.
I am also the second oldest of 14 siblings now! Yes, this is true. After a couple of divorces, marriages & babies it is now the grand total. Most of us are out of the house, but I could not be happier with where my family is now. I am so thankful for everyone in my life & how they support my art.
