Less posing, more fun. For you and your kids and so your spouse doesn't dread getting the family photos done. My approach is to keep things enjoyable and allow your family to be captured as they are.

My lifestyle sessions might not be for everyone, and that’s okay. They will be fun, I can guarantee that, but my style of photography focuses more on seeing your family as you really are. I want to help you remember your family at that particular moment in time. That means capturing those moments beautifully, no matter how ordinary or simple. Real smiles and hugs are common in my galleries. Overly staged or posed “Christmas card” shots are not my thing.

I photograph families because the relationships between different families mean a lot to me. The relationship between you and your family can really shape how you grow up. When I get to photograph families I use my ability to embrace the chaos to create an environment where families can feel like themselves in front of the camera and where they are able to create lasting memories together. When families have these memories captured it allows them to remember them forever.

I love photographing families over the years and getting to watch them grow. It may just be my favorite part of the job. I also love getting emails back from my clients saying their kids actually had fun at their session and no longer dread getting their photos taken. I hope by capturing these families they are able to have time together to just relax and enjoy it.

Kirsten is talented, and was wonderful to work with. She was able to capture natural moments with my family in such a beautiful way. The pictures turned out so well, and we love the way she composed the shots and caught the best light. She was able to give gentle guidance on what colors to wear, which was helpful, but…


Kirsten has been absolutely incredible. We can't recommend her enough! She has photographed our family for several years now and each time we're thrilled with the results. Family pictures can feel a lot like "herding cats" when you're trying to get four small children to cooperate. The beauty of Kirsten's work is that…
