quick facts about me

I am a newborn portrait photographer, mentor, and memory keeper. Newborn photography is my passion and my specialty. I work out of my home studio and serve expecting parents by providing an outstanding portrait experience and capturing images that will stand the test of time. I am safety certified and accredited with APNPI and safety is my #1 priority during your session.

As a photography mentor, I combine my passion for photography and education by providing resources and personalized coaching to female entrepreneurs helping them build their confidence, find their secret sauce, and turn their dream job into their day job! 

i'm kristi

hey there!

Let's stay in touch... 

Outside of having the best job ever I am also blessed to be a fire wife and momma of two! Our son Declan is 9 years old. He is curious, determined, and affectionate. Our daughter Esme is 7. She is spirited, imaginative, and fearless. We also have a spoiled 11 year old yellow lab name Charlie and 3 year old terrier mix named Oliver. 

I couldn't believe how fast my babies went from newborns to full on kids! When I combined my love of photography with my love for babies I knew I was hooked! 

Why I do what I do.
