Star Visions Photography, is a premier portrait photography studio serving the Frankfort, Mokena, New Lenox, Tinley Park, Orland Park, Joliet and Chicago South suburbs.

Star Visions Photography provides creative images for Children, Family, High School Senior, Maternity, Bridal, Boudoir, Pinup, Engagement and Babies. Ken Hawke the owner and primary photographer is also an accomplished digital artist. The end product from many photography sessions is digitally altered in Photoshop to create a realistic painting or pencil sketch.

Star Visions Photography studio is located conveniently in historic Frankfort Illinois which offers a wide variety of outside scenic locations within walking distance.

Star visions photography is also the official photography studio for Lincoln-Way East high school.

Ken Hawke has been creating portraits for over 20 years. Ken and Eileen started Star Visions in 1993 in a Canon Eileen staff photographsmall home studio.  Due to Ken’s unique casual  style and personal service, several moves to larger studios were a  necessity. Star Visions started with about 200 Sq. Ft. and has grown to  over 2500 Sq.   Ken is a member of the Professional Photographers of  America, Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and National  Association of Photoshop Professionals.  Continuing education is a  priority for Ken and these organizations help keep Ken and the studio  staff ahead of changes, trends and technology by providing an abundance  of classes and seminars.

To support the Frankfort community ,Ken has served on numerous village committees and has been instrumental in the revitalization of the historic business community. Ken has been an active member of the  Frankfort Chamber of Commerce including serving as President and  seven years as a member of the Board of Directors. The Frankfort Chamber provides entertainment, sponsors events and supports a variety of  charities within the Lincoln-way community.

Ken also supports the local school systems by providing internships and summer jobs for local students. Ken has also supported the great schools and high school with donations towards their annual fundraising, music and sports booster programs.

Is with heavy heart that after 25 years Star Visions Photography has permanently closed our doors. My plan is to "Mostly Retire". I am planning on continuing to photograph preschools and other location-based programs I have been working with for over 20 years,

I'm going to maintain a small office and I will be available for a limited number of portrait sessions on location or utilizing my portrait gardens and beautiful historic downtown Frankfort. I can still be reached at 815-469-3858 or via email at:

Over the past 25 years I have had the privilege to meet thousands of wonderful people and enjoyed capturing their memories with portraits. I sincerely thank all of the loyal clients that let us become a small part of their lives. If she could, I know Eileen would tell me "okay It's time to move the next adventure". So That's the Plan.
