Hey there! I'm Kristen.

welcome, friend

Maybe you're here after searching "family photographer near me" or "family portrait photographer" and looking through a million websites. There are so many options for a family photographer in Kansas City, and I know choosing the right person for your family portraits is important - so let me tell you a bit about myself.

I'm a photographer, mama to two, and your personal hype girl. Raised and loyal to Kansas City, I'm proud to call this city home. You can find me jamming to Lizzo in my car, chasing my little ones around, or at a coffee shop working, sipping on an iced caramel latte. 

I was placed on this earth to create. That has taken me through music, art, videography, and even woodworking! However, throughout the years, I kept finding myself with my camera in hand, ecstatic to capture memories. 

I am so proud to watch my dreams become reality and capture your family photos that you will cherish forever.

Take a look around - I'm here when you're ready!

Kristen was wonderful to work with, professional, responsive, competitively priced and so talented! We are thrilled with our Fall photos!

Kristen is SO responsive to every need you might have (and the ones you don’t even know you have!), the sessions are fun and comfortable, and the photos are incredible quality. She responds in a timely manner with both scheduling the session and getting your photos back to you. I cannot recommend her enough!

Kristen was so wonderful to work with! From the very beginning she made us feel so valued and welcomed. She made scheduling so easy, talked me through my questions for outfits and the shoot, and was amazing to work with day of. She made my kids feel respected and made getting pictures taken fun. She has a great eye and clearly puts effort and love into her craft. The pictures were finished efficiently and were well done. I would highly recommend Kristen!
