about  kristen

...my boys’ laughter, smiles and giggles, my husband’s embrace, sweet reminders of God’s unending love for me... I drool over Pinterest eye candy, delightful combinations of colors and textures, a beautifully organized space, a brilliantly decorated room. I am passionately creative. I crave the sunshine and love escaping to it whenever I can. I love to love, and I have a huge heart for people…

You'll find that I'm more than just a photographer. I build relationships with my clients, which not only helps make the photo sessions more fun but also helps you feel relaxed, carefree, and simply beautiful in front of the camera.

Why don’t we chat a while and get to know each other? I'd love to talk about and create your own creative experience! Just contact me by clicking on the "contact" button above.

I delight in the little things – that perfect glowy golden sun, the sweet smell of freshly fallen rain...

F.A.Q.'s, Investment & the session >

F.a.q.'s


An On Location Outdoor Session is $199. (Add $75 for a Deluxe Makeup Session.) You'll have an amazing, customized portrait adventure! Then, you get to see and show off your portraits in a Portrait Premiere. At the Portrait Premiere, prints and products are available in collections and a-la-carte. Most clients start with a collection, since that offers the best value. Collections start at $499 and prints start at $65 a la carte or $45 with a collection. Prints may be ordered a la carte as part of a $500 print and keepsakes order.



The creative fee is for my time and talent during the session. I even meet with you in a pre-session consultation to work my customization and planning magic! After the session, I offer prints, albums and other gorgeous keepsakes, which you choose and purchase separately.


Don't you worry! I'll help with wardrobe styling so we can figure out what would look best on (all of) you and in your adventure location, also making sure your future wall art with pair amazingly with your adventure location and home décor. 


Absolutely! Some people find it more comfortable to bring a friend or a family member.

 



Makeovers can make all the difference! Not only is a little pampering fun, but a makeover brings out your best features and creates more of a flawless finish for stunning portraits! I offer a deluxe makeup session that includes a makeover by a professional beauty consultant and lets you take home your look (in products!)


Expect to have fun, play a little, relax a little…It’s a special time for you to enjoy! I have a knack for helping people of all ages feel at ease, and we will have already had time to get to know each other a bit while planning your personal experience.


All of my sessions are on-location, not in a studio. I love the fun and freedom that offers! If you don't have any wonderful places in mind, leave it to me and I will take you to locations that will look best with your taste, clothing, your style. Contact me, and we can go over specifics.


It all depends on the weather and location, but lighting makes all the difference! Around 2-3 hours before sunset is a good rule of thumb.

First, expect to have a great time, because you will. It’s ok to feel little nervous but you will soon relax with my easy going manner and creative photography!

the session

Before your session, we will work together to style your personal portrait adventure. We will find the ideal outdoor location(s) that offer beauty and adventure.

During your session,  I’ll help guide you on your adventure while maintaining a fun and relaxing atmosphere, styled but not too “posey-posey." 

I LOVE capturing all those precious moments on camera, all of them, the REAL moments, the fun and smiles and silliness and laughter, the play, the serious moments of calmness, love, and beauty. 

After the shoot, we’ll have a Portrait Premiere viewing and ordering session. That’s the time you’ll place your final print and product order, so you’ll want everyone there. I'll provide some refreshments for you, and you will all love seeing your gorgeous images!

You will choose your favorites to showcase in your home, give as gifts, incorporate into a lovely album or almost anything you imagine! 

Please contact me to chat more about your personalized portrait adventure!

I’ve just had a quick glance through {the photos] again. They are so wonderful. You are a brilliant photographer, and the relationship you have with Kristina shows in the pictures.

 Did you know that they have taken out those [abandoned] railroad tracks?...Not sure what they are doing, but I am so glad you were able to get photos there – those are some of my favourites.

Both Jake and I would like to thank you for taking our engagement photos! We are so excited to see how they turn out and feel really lucky to have found such a fabulous photographer to capture us together!


Much Love,
Beth & Jake!

The kids are really enjoying the pictures too! I was so glad to have them hanging before my MOPS Christmas party here, so I could show them off to everyone. They were so impressed with the quality of the photos and how several of them look like paintings! Abigail has two of the photos of her and Anna in her room right now! I am not planning on any trips to see me sister anytime soon, so I will plan a time for her to pick them up from you. Is there a day and time this coming week that would work for you? I sent out our Christmas cards, these are by far the nicest ones we have ever sent! Thank you for keepsakes we will treasure for a lifetime! :)

Sincerely,
Kristen

You did an amazing job taking Bekah's high school senior pictures! Your passion for what you do shows clearly in how you interacted with Bekah and the quality of the pictures taken. Because of your warm personality, you were able to put Bekah at ease during the photo shoot and were really able to capture the essence of who Bekah is in the pictures that you took. So amazing and we are thrilled with the results! We are so happy to have found you and THANK YOU for the passion that you bring to your photos!!!
