Kidsandthecity ( KATC ) is THE internationally recognized industry leading photography studio that exclusively caters to tweens and young teens. KATC is located in downtown Chicago, Illinois, however the studio will travel for portrait sessions. At KATC, we focus on capturing the trendsetting teen who wants to stand out and not follow the crowd. At the KATC studio, teens can have fun while maintaining an authentic sense of self.
We attract the teens and work DIRECTLY with the parents to make sure that our top notch images match the top notch experience that strives to deliver. Teens can express themselves with their families, through their friendships, or by themselves. At KATC, we are dedicated to producing magazine-style images that will stop anyone in their tracks.
We put forth an effort to allow teens to have fun, and to capture their inner confidence as well.
