Introduction: While some photographers use man made props, I love utilizing the space around people more to help focus in on the person/business. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and I place a lot of importance in my relationship with people to help make those magical moments mean more! I once had an event planner tell me that when it comes to the events, its the emotions and the people... I couldn't agree more! I love being able to show people the beauty in themselves, and watching new artists and business owners see their work from a different point of view. Photography is a social art, and I love the people aspect of my job!

We had a positive experience hiring Kristine. She responded promptly and was very personable! We hired her for family pics with our newborn. She was respectful and understanding of two tired parents and a brand new baby! We are very happy with our photos.

Kristine was amazing! We took photos of our 7 month old son for first time and I am beyond happy with the quality and outcome of the work. Our little guy didn’t give the most enthusiasm during shoot but Kristine was patient and made the very best of the situation. She was a superb communicator as and simplified everything throughout the process. Thanks again! 100% recommend

FAQs

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

    The most important part of my process is the series of conversations we have before your event or photo session. I want to take the time to get to know you, and get an idea of your vision!

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

    I am currently enrolled with the New York Institute of Photography. They are nationally accredited, and once I graduate, I will have professional certification in photography to go with my Bachelor's in Psychology.
