Hello there! I’m Kristen. I am a mom to four littles and a wife to my very loving and supportive husband. My story didn’t always involve a camera. Ever since I was little, art has always been my draw and brought me joy. Art later translated into being a graphic designer, which turned another corner into photography. I have worn many hats in my 37 years, but there hasn’t been anything, aside from being a mother, that has lit my heart on fire quite like this.
I approach photography with a designer’s eye and my style can best be described as clean, bright, and sometimes whimsical. My own children are amazing little subjects and light up when they see my camera.
I believe photographs are something to be cherished, printed, and kept as heirlooms for generations to enjoy.
Photography only depicts a small portion of my life. Jesus is my savior, my strength, and my joy. My husband is my best friend and family is most important to me. I have a deep passion for adoption. I am inspired by all things vintage. I have a particularly cute french bulldog. When I have a sliver of time, I love to read fiction books and shop thrift stores. This pretty much makes up the rest of who I am, plus or minus a few things.
I find being a portrait photographer wonderful for a few reasons. The first reason is obvious — I absolutely love taking photographs. But mainly it’s wonderful because I get to spend precious time with families and get to know their stories and what makes them who they are. So now that you know a little bit about me, let’s plan a shoot so I can get to know you and, of course, take some sweet photos!
