Kristen was absolutely amazing!! Our engagement photos are so high quality and everything we could have wanted! She was so patient when working with us and spent extra time at our photoshoot location beforehand so she could pick out good spots for us to take pictures. We felt very comfortable working with her and have so many wonderful photos now! Would definitely recommend!!

Details: Posed engagement photoshoot • Natural or environmental • Artful composition and lighting • Candid • Traditional posed • Outdoors • One location • Online or digital proofs and prints • Physical proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

Kristin was very responsive in our communications. She helped us pick the perfect outdoor location for photos and a back up studio in case of weather. She was very professional and punctual on the day of the shoot, and I couldn’t be happier with the results of the photos!

Details: Family or children's portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Photo studio • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Kristen was excellent! She offered location ideas, helped with specific photo spots and made the time very enjoyable. The pictures were outstanding! It was very difficult to choose only 22 shots. Then when we received the final pictures, we were just thrilled! We could not recommend Kristen more highly! She is fabulous and so easy to work with. You will love her work so hire her with confidence!

Details: Graduation portrait • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Home • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Sessions start at $375 and are typically 45-minutes to an hour-long. You'll receive the entire hand-edited gallery (roughly 50-75 images), which you can view and download from your very own private online gallery.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I send all my clients an email with a questionnaire to get to know them and their desires. After you fill out the questionnaire, we will discuss a time and date for your photo session. Once we have a session date and time, I will send a contract for you to review and sign and an invoice with an estimate of the session fee. Upon receiving the invoice email, all clients are expected to pay the retainer ($150). The rest of the invoice fee is due one to two weeks before your session. We will meet at the location you chose on your session day, and I will make the magic happen. After the session is all said and done, I will go home and upload your beautiful memories onto my computer and hard drive. I'll cull the images down to roughly 50-75 photos, eliminating any duplicates, out-of-focus shots, or images where eyes are closed. I will hand-edit each image and add a few black and white versions. Once I'm finished editing, I will upload your photos to your private online gallery, where you can download and share high-resolution images for free! There's an online print store attached to your gallery, which offers high-quality pints (big and small), canvases, albums, calendars, and much more! The print store works with high-quality printing companies, so your images will look fantastic in a frame and on your living room wall! I have ordered my own photos from the print store, and I can't imagine printing them anywhere else.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied photography at Minnesota State University - Mankato. I took a film photography class where we used black and white film cameras and Holga cameras. We learned to develop the images in a dark room and get the black and white tones right. I also took various digital photography classes, where I learned how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Also, in the digital photography class, I learned how to shoot in Manual and understand ISO, shutter speed, and aperture.
