Thank you so much for your message! We will be in touch!

Haha! This is my most commonly asked question! Your entire photoshoot will be captured on medium format and 35mm film (no digital cameras in this gal's bag!). You will see me loading film in my cameras throughout our photoshoot, as film allows me to capture only sixteen photos per roll!

Wait, what do you mean you shoot film?

The tones and colors of film are unsurpassed and cannot be reproduced with digital. Film is classic and timeless. No trendy filters or presets that will make you cringe when you look back at your photos in twenty years. And let's be real, no one wants to see their skin in High Definition aka digital photos.

Why do you choose to shoot film over digital?

Please reach out to me two - three months before you would like to have your session! I only take on a select number of photoshoots per month so I can give each client the experience and customer service they deserve. If you are interested in maternity photos, please reach out when you are 16-20 weeks!

How far in advance should I book my photioshoot?

I've had lots and lots of practice with my own two wiggly kids, so rest assured we will capture them perfectly, that is the true and authentic version of them!

And because kids will be kids, embrace the meltdowns (because they will happen!). A toddler crying into his mama's shoulder can too become a gorgeous photograph. And just as emotions come and go, the meltdown will pass. 

My kids don't sit still...will you be able to capture them on film?

Unfortunately, there isn't anything quick about a session! Your session will take time. We don't want to rush these moments, we want to capture them in a natural and authentic way as they unfold. 

Our session together will last around one hour! This will allow us plenty of time to document your story. 

I just want a quick session! My kids  don't have the patience for photos.

Digital files are available for purchase!

Included in your package are premium archival prints which will live long past the days of Facebook and Instagram posts. 

Also available for purchase are albums and custom frames, designed exclusively for your home. 

Since you only shoot film, will I receive any digital files?

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."
