Kristen Privett Photography » Chico, CA Photography

  • Welcome!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I'm Kristen, a natural-light photographer in Chico, CA. I specialize in all families, from just in the belly to home visiting during a break in college. I love dramatic lighting, stunning nature, and loving families.

    All of my clients love their families so much, I am just there to let you shine. I know all about babies, children, families, and your love. You will walk away from a session with modern, clean, and emotional photographs that will be treasured forever.

Thriving Threes {Chico Photographer}

Our eldest son turns three this month.  Which means getting out of those wonderful twos.  The twos weren’t that bad for us.  We hope he doesn’t make up for it in his threes.

I love when my clients have the same style as I do!  Little Gavin from my last session and Jackson have the same hats.  I was thrilled when I saw Gavin in his.

With full sessions, we’re able to have some fun with props or a theme.  But there’s also something simple and pure about going out and shooting with just a night with great  light and a happy child.

And here he is, free as a bird, all done with his three year old portraits.  I love these just as much.

Happy Birthday Mr. Jackson 🙂

Cheryl Lovejoy - Happy Birthday JT! He’s gotten so big and handsome. Great photos! Love the lighting.

Maria Alexandru - these are beautiful, love the railroad tracks and the hat 🙂

A Fall Apple Stand {Chico Family Photographer}

The most adorable family and a perfect Fall evening.  I had this session envisioned in my head, and this wonderful family put it together so perfectly.  This session was so incredibly fun, both for me and as you can imagine, for the kids too.



Charissa has the most beautiful children and creates the most beautiful things.  She made Lucy’s amazing headband and the flags for the stand.  You can find her wonderful talents here and here.


Amber - Beautiful pictures, Kristen! Your props are amazing. love it all!

The Organic Bloom Frames {Chico Photographer}

I am pleased to be able to offer The Organic Bloom frames!  If you have not heard of The Organic Bloom yet, you are in for a treat!  These are gorgeous, made to order frames.  Custom Framing, that matches Custom Photography.  I have a set of white Organic Bloom Frames in my house.  I stare at them and their beauty constantly.  Of course it doesn’t hurt to have some beautiful photographs along with them to show off.  There are so many frame and color options, I’m looking forward to getting many more to add to my personal collection as well.  I am already thinking beach pictures in our master bath, and red and blue for my sons’ rooms.


You do not have to be a current or past client to order these beautiful frames!  Please feel free to contact me for pricing!



Many thanks to Angela Starr Photography and Destiny Photography for allowing me to use their gorgeous Organic Bloom examples.
