My Approach


On the day of your photoshoot, come prepared to play and have fun! We'll get a posed shot for the camera, as well as candids to capture your personality.


Within 2 weeks your gallery will be ready for your Zoom image premiere. Choose your favorite images for your cards and I'll take care of the design and ordering!

Reach out for a list of available dates and times for your holiday or Christmas photos. After booking, check out the comprehensive session and style guide I'll send your way!

"What makes me a good photographer?"




How it Works


I always take a mix of candid and posed shots so you can be sure to get that "everyone smiling for the camera" shot for Grandma, and also relaxed shots that reflect more of your family's personality.


I always start by introducing myself, especially to any little ones! I want to make a connection with your family before we begin to help you feel more comfortable with me!


I work efficiently during and after your session. I'll help you feel comfortable and confident, and work quickly to photograph and deliver a full gallery with lots of variety.

As a busy mom, I know how quickly the holidays seem to arrive each year! Let me streamline the holiday card process for you! I'll expertly offer wardrobe and location advice, efficiently photograph you, and present card mockups within two days. Two days after ordering, your printed cards will be in your hands!

"If I could give Kristen *more* than 5 stars, I would. I am blown away at the quality of photos we received from our session with her. They are gorgeous images that perfectly capture the personality of our family. "
