BEHIND my WORK
I approach all of my sessions with the heart of a mother. Since giving birth to my daughter I've felt time running through my fingertips, moment by moment. The truth is, this portion of my work is slightly self-indulgent because in a way, I get to share with you the precious gift of time.
With each click of my shutter, each frame that is taken, a photograph is made and time stands still. That moment is preserved and no longer slips away.
I believe in history, in legacy and in leaving our stories behind so that our children and theirs can covet the lives that we've worked so hard to build.
I offer natural light in-home, in-hospital and on-location lifestyle portrait photography with a focus on documenting motherhood and families in a natural and authentic way. Film photographs have a timeless, painterly effect that can't be replicated through digital mediums and I love using it for many of my sessions.
The beauty of motherhood can so often be overlooked but I believe documenting this time of change is just as important as documenting the arrival of your new baby.
The simplicity of an expectant mother or a woman with her newborn child can create some of my favorite timeless moments that you will be able to share with your children and future grandchildren.
maternity & motherhood
The birth of a child is one of the most momentous experiences that any family will have and that deserves to be documented.
Everything from their tiny toes to some of your first newborn snuggles will be documented so you can cherish their first few hours in this world. Newborn sessions can be done in-hospital/birthing center within 48 hours of delivery or in the comfort of your home.
Life is busy and our children grow up more quickly than we care to admit which is why I love to offer
a limited number of family sessions to former clients throughout the year.
These sessions are often abbreviated experiences - just the perfect amount of time to document those little moments while also being considerate of short attention spans!
family & PARENTHOOD
"Krista was AMAZING to work with. She did our newborn photos after our son was born and I cannot thank her enough for her flexibility (life with a newborn is tough), kindness and professionalism. Krista was flexible with dates and times, answered emails promptly, arrived on time with a huge smile, and was a pleasure to work with. She made our entire family, including our 2 dogs feel at ease! Krista took the most amazing photos of not only our newborn but she was able to capture our entire family in our natural element, our home. I will be recommending Krista to anyone and everyone! I will truly treasure these photos and memories for a lifetime."
"Krista first came to my home to take photos of my family after I brought home my newborn daughter. I felt like I had known her for a lifetime already. She made us all feel so comfortable being photographed. She took posed photos but her candid work was so special. The in between takes, where I’m cleaning up spit up or changing a diaper... those special moments were captured as well. Krista’s turn around time was rapid fire, which I appreciated because we were able to print and frame some photos for Christmas. Krista was on time (maybe even early) and we never felt rushed, even though I know she had other jobs besides ours. I highly recommend Krista for any special occasion! My only regret is that I didn’t know of her when my first daughter was born."
"Krista is amazing! We booked her for a mini session a few years ago and now we make sure to book her every year. Not only is she a great photographer, but she makes the whole experience super comfortable (which helps for people like me who don't really like having their picture taken). She's great with our kids too and always gets great shots of them - even though they don't like sitting still :) We love her and look forward to working with her every year!"
"Krista is AMAZING. We have used her twice now for family pictures and each time I am blown away by the images she captures. She has the patience of a saint and feels like part of your family by the end of the session. I cannot say enough good things about her and look forward to working with her for years to come!!"
