~About Kirsten~ Owner/Lead photographer and retouching artist Lover of laughter, authentic expressions of emotion, and special moments. Mom to three kool (and whacko) kids. Wife to an amazingly supportive husband. Cat and dog mom. Super awesome friend to many! Pizza eating and wine drinking aficionado Dislikes: Dieting, whining, and pessimism
My story: Starting at a young age, I was always the person dragging my camera to every event...from sleepovers and class trips (this was before digital and smartphones!). I have ALBUMS and ALBUMS of pictures from throughout the years and my walls are covered in portraits (Why waste art saved on flash drives when you can see it everyday!). You will see the passion for documenting special moments in your images. As the years go by, I continue to grow and learn through continuing education (such as newborn posing and safety, advanced photoshop techniques, boudoir posing, and studio lighting). So here we are now, three years into taking a leap of faith and deciding to take my love and knowledge of photography and make it a career that I love and am proud of. Come join me!
My culture: Photography can be precise and technical- some just have "the eye"; for me, the art comes through the love and care I give each image in photoshop. Enhancing the natural beauty of people and their surroundings brings me immense joy! My favorite thing about being a "boss" in the art world is how FUN it is! I can be genuine to who I am and make all the rules . I create art for your family that represents you and tells the story of YOU!
My promise: Have you ever looked at a photograph and been blown away by the beauty in a simple smile, laugh, or everyday moment? Those very things are the reason why I became a photographer. To see beauty in moments and people, then to capture those moments, so others can see themselves the way I do... it is miraculous! I truly take pride in providing you with quality images and a great experience. It may seem like lots of laughs and fun (I hope so anyway), but after the session you will receive a beautiful and professional gallery filled with your own personal art. You will come away from your experience with KM Photography feeling satisfied and with a treasure to pass on for generations.
If you had an awesome experience, like I hope you have, please consider recommending me to your friends and family, as referrals are essential to the growth of my business. Thank you!
I am proud to also mention that I belong to the Magic Hour network of photographers. Through Magic Hour, I donate my time and services to photograph families effected by cancer. I make lasting memories that celebrate the life of individuals battling cancer.
