Hey, I'm Kristen!

I'm a family, senior portrait, and wedding photographer based out of Chicago and the San Francisco Bay Area. I love sunshine, cacti, chocolate chips, and a great cup of tea - but most of all I love photographing joyful and lively families, high school seniors, and couples. :)

Yoga Branding Photos | San Francisco Bay Area

I had so much fun doing some yoga branding photos for my yogi friend Nina! What are branding photos? Cool photos for her website and social media presence. She wanted a natural setting to highlight her deep connection to the outdoors and this park perfectly supplied us with both beautiful redwood trees and a grassy meadow with oaks to showcase her yoga expertise!

Nina is an impressive yoga instructor and ayurvedic counselor who focuses on improving her clients’ mental health through a multi-faceted approach. Her exciting upcoming side-project is to work with young people who have experienced trauma. She just launched an interesting new Instagram series on trauma recovery and how we can all be more sensitive to and aware of trauma in our lives and the lives of those around us! Nina is a sensitive, compassionate, and skilled teacher on a journey to help others live their fullest, most true-to-themself lives and to relax into their own souls.

Come see Nina’s Yoga Branding Photos!

As we walked around the park we found a climbing tree for some cool portraits to showcase Nina’s love of the outdoors! I love her adventurous spirit and that she was willing to give tree-climbing during a portrait session a try!
