The Experience

How will my kids photograph on film? ⟶

The day has arrived! It's time to document your story. The outfits have been picked and the location set, now it's time to relax and enjoy your session, seriously! Kids will be kids! The more you are able to relax, have fun, and smile (even if the kids are being rambunctious!), the more you will love your photos. 

Step 2: Document Your Story

What's next

Learn about wet prints ⟶

Two to three weeks after our session, you will receive a gallery to view your photos. Upon selecting your favorites, they will be sent to the lab where they will printed using the  true, photographic wet process, that pays homage to traditional darkroom printing and comes on only the finest premium, hand torn paper.

" I can't think of anyone else who can photograph our family, as Kristin feels like an extension of ours. Our kids love her and she is so kind, caring, and considerate. She offers suggestions, and is open to feedback. Kristin has a clear vision for every session, and then just goes with whatever comes her way. That flexibility makes each session fun and she is so easy to work with. She keeps the kids engaged, while photographing them in their element, which we all know is a challenge with little ones. I look forward to (what feels like) our yearly "get togethers" that definitely feel more like an experience together, not a photo session."


What clients are saying

There is something about film that speaks to us. Generation after generation, film remains timeless. There's a reason why we love our grandparent's wedding photos - film stands the test of time. In twenty years, you won't look back and regret investing in this classic medium. Trends and VSCO filters will come and go, but the photos that we capture together will live beyond Instagram.

Why film? 

- 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."
