Hi I'm Kristen! I'm a story teller with a camera. It's become a part of who I am, always looking for the story. Every family has their story and I'm like a kid in a candy store when I find it. Then I'm in. I'm there for life, year after year. I strive to capture your expressions, the little details, the quiet seconds, the tiny toes, the growth chart, the chaos like a zoo, the hugs, the laughter, the boo boo kisses, the tears, the triumphs, the one of a kind handshake, the fun, the LOVE. Your story. Only yours.
As a mother of two amazing munchkins and together with the love of my life, I truly appreciate and pay attention to those little things that make our story ours. Every family has one.
I read somewhere the family photos are one of the few items people grab in an emergency and preserve in a keepsake album. The photos you will look at over and over throughout your entire lives, and your children's lives, and forever after. The heirlooms. The ancestry. I understand how important those memories are for every family. I would be truly honored to capture yours.
After nearly twenty years photographing families, I am still surprised during every session, I laugh until my sides hurt, and I call my clients friends. I've always said just be yourselves, and I'll do the rest.
