Hello,  I'm Kristin! A fine art film photographer in the Bay Area whose style encapsulates a timeless and authentic photojournalistic vibe. My goal throughout every photoshoot is to tell your story and preserve your memories on film. There is no pressure for that perfect family photo.

Specializing in raw and intimate

- VAnessa, mom

"I whole-heartedly trust Kristin to do this in the most authentic way. She has an eye for detail that I admire, and her ease with film photography in capturing my children"

Abbeigh -  mom and photographer

"They are exactly how I want to remember our life together in this moment- lots of adventure, lots of emotions, lots of love."

-Katie and matt

"This was the first time my fiancé and I ever had a professional photoshoot and we are so happy to have had this experience with Kristin. Her warmth and positivity immediately made Matt and I at ease. She provided great direction, while also giving us room to be natural. 

- Vanessa, Mom

"I only have one real "yearly" request of my family, and that is for someone other than myself to photograph us. I whole-heartedly trust Kristin to do this in the most authentic way. She has an eye for detail that I admire, and her ease with film photography in capturing my children are just a few things I am impressed with."

- Jessica, mom and Artist

"Kristin did an incredible job capturing my family! The best part was that it hardly felt like a photoshoot because she made us all feel so comfortable, this is very evident in our photos. She was laid back the entire time and it truly felt like an experience as we enjoyed the beach and each other. Kristin captured each member of my family so well, from the curls of my daughter's hair to my son's expressions and my husband's dimple - the attention to detail and artful approach she takes is worth every penny."

I'm the founder and photographer behind the lens. After a trip to Europe over ten years ago, with my now husband Ryan, my love for photography grew. I began photographing landscapes, food, and then my daughter Piper. 

Since then, I has ventured into the fine art world of film photography and haven't looked back to digital. 

I'm Kristin!
