So why choose me? I see you. My goal is to give you what you want— the opportunity to capture this moment in your family’s life, as you are and having so much fun together. AND I want to make the process simple and enjoyable. Providing you with an exceptional client experience is one of my favorite parts of my job.
I will help you style your outfits and work with you to create a vision of the session that exceeds your expectations. We will "go on an adventure" (that is what I always tell the kids we are doing!) and have a perfect session together. I know so. many. tips and tricks, so just leave it all to me. I am so excited to work with you.
am so excited you're here. After I had my first daughter, I began to realize the importance of photographs and videos. I felt that time was moving at lightning speed and I didn't like it! Now I have 5 amazing littles and guess what? None of them listen to me when I tell them to relax with all the growing up.
a snapshot into my life
1 / 3
My life completely revolves around my family. I have five young kids, all under 8 years old, who really keep me on my toes. (Am I ever not being asked for snacks?!) During the week, you will find me carting them to and from school or to their various activities like an Uber driver (or getting them snacks...send help). Our favorite things to do together as a family in the winter are watching movies in front of a fire, drinking hot chocolate, or reading books; and in the summer, swimming at the lake or in our pool, going on adventures and exploring, and riding bikes. Neighbors have been known to ask, "Is there a parade in town that I don't know about?" when we are walking down the street. Life is crazy and perfectly imperfect!
2 / 3
One of my absolute favorite things to do with my kids (and clients!) is to chase sunsets. I am drawn to them like a magnet. I love finding locations where light is the star-- it makes everybody look so good! When the world is bathed in beautiful, golden light, I am popping my kids into the car and driving to one of my many favorite places to photograph them.
My ideal evening would honestly be taking pictures of my kids at sunset in a wildflower meadow. Throw in a few timeless, antique-looking props and you've got yourself my definition of perfection.
3 / 3
I have always loved reading. My parents used to call me Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, because my head was always stuck in a book. My favorite authors are Stephen King, Toni Morrison, and Neil Gaiman. My favorite genre of all time is probably historical fiction. I never realized how interesting history is until I started reading historical fiction and learning about it that way.
If I could live in a dream place, it would have a huge library in it with one of those ladders that helps you get to the higher books. Oh, and it would have a secret bookcase passageway in it, too. And huge windows that let it in the most beautiful light, of course.
I LOVE A GOOD BOOK!

Family films are so important to me as a mom that, of course, I had to make one for MY family! I am a volunteer chef for the non-profit organization called Lasagna Love and I wanted to remember how much my kids love to eat, make, and help me deliver lasagnas each week! You can get to know me and my children a little bit better through this film.
Kristine was recommended by a friend after she had done their gender reveal and newborn shoot. Safe to say she did NOT disappoint when we booked her for our own newborn shoot with our daughter!
Kristine was not only super professional but also made us feel so comfortable. Our photos came out incredible! We loved them so much we decided to use her again for our fall family photoshoot. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful our photos are. 15/10 recommend! You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I had adopted our son without any notice (24 hours) and needed to get newborn/family photos booked asap. I’m so lucky that it was a slower time of year and Kristine was able to squeeze me in. Not only did she work us into her schedule with little notice, she drove down to my house an hour away during a snow storm…now that’s commitment! She was very patient with our son and was able to capture the perfect moments of our family. We were obsessed with all the photos and she really did capture all the best moments using just natural light. We couldn’t have been happier to work with this wonderful young lady. We plan on working with her on all future family photos now. If you're still looking, look no further as you won’t be disappointed.

Kristine was such a pleasure to work with so soon after the birth of our son. She made the newborn photoshoot experience so perfect and amazing. It was really helpful that she came to our house for the photoshoot, rather than us traveling with a newborn while we were still getting used to our bearings and adjusting to having a newborn. The turnaround in receiving the edits was also very quick - we were very impressed with how fast the whole process was and how quickly we had the final edits in our inbox/hands. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and we have received so many compliments!! Thank you so much for capturing such a beautiful time in our lives so perfectly! We also love the keepsake of the album that we received in our package. We highly recommend Kristine for any family photograph needs, we know we will definitely be reaching out to Kristine for our next family photoshoot. Thank you so very much Kristine 😊

Kristine was referred to me by a friend and she took maternity and newborn photos for us. She is very friendly and easy to work with, edits the pictures quickly, and our pictures are absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be using her in the future for more family photos! I would highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Kristine! My tough cookie husband‘s exact words were “wow these rival our wedding photos as the best photos we have from our 14 years together!” Kristine's work is such a gift to our family. She was able to capture our little guys’ light and smiles and the fun we have together as a family. Kristine has a wonderful eye for artistic angles and great light. She worked wonders with our high-energy toddler, and was accommodating, quick, and professional when we needed to reschedule due to illness & when we asked for a follow-up retouch to a photo. Five stars! Hope to use her again!

Kristine is super creative, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. I was lucky to have been gifted a newborn shoot by my friend and I am so happy that I had the chance to work with Kristine. We wanted timeless family pictures with our newborn and she really captured the sweetest moments. She came all the way to our house, she brought everything that was needed for the shoot, and gave us some really useful tips to prepare ahead of time to help make the session a smooth experience, given a newborn schedule :) Highly recommended!

Where do I even begin! From start to finish Kristine was accommodating to our schedule, flexible, kind and made us feel so comfortable! Our session was filled with so many laughs and the pictures were amazing! We can’t wait to do another photo session with Kristine!! Highly recommend!!! Truly worth the investment and memories!

Kristine is amazing! I first met her at the Mother’s Day photo shoot and she took the most beautiful pictures of me and my little one despite us dealing with a cranky baby who had just woken up from a nap :D! I have the Mother’s Day pictures hanging all over my house and always get compliments from visitors saying they are so beautiful, natural and earthy. I recently took my maternity pictures with her and again the results were amazing. She really knows how to work the lens and capture some beautiful images full of love and light. I can’t wait until our newborn shoot in April. I highly recommend her for any of her shoots.

You Deserve the best
I am here to capture the essence of what makes your family unique and special. I make everything easy-- from the moment you inquire about a session to the moment you walk past that canvas hanging on your wall and do a double-take, thinking, "Wow, I love us."
