about kristen

You'll find that I'm more than just a photographer. I build relationships with my clients. That means you'll feel relaxed, carefree, and simply beautiful in front of the camera.

Why don’t we chat a bit and get to know each other? I'd love to talk about your dreams about a portrait session and heirloom fine art.

Hi! I'm Kristen:
a bubble tea-drinking, magic-making portrait artist; wife to a wonderful husband, and mama to three delightfully energetic boys.

Details & investment

Before your session, you will have a complimentary design consultation. We will dream up your perfect session and plan how to treasure your artwork forever as I will walk you through my full product menu, wall art, and heirloom keepsakes.

During your session, I'll guide you on your fun and relaxing time. Come prepared to laugh and rock those poses you know you practice in front of the mirror. Don’t worry - I’ll guide you every step of the way, and you can bring friends and family to cheer you on!

Around a week after your shoot is your Portrait Premiere! You'll enjoy refreshments while viewing your gorgeous images. You'll choose your favorite images to showcase in your home, your office, an heirloom album, and give as gifts.

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.

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!
