Family sessions mean so much to me – they are an expression of who you are as a group, and allow you to have incredible images to look back on as your family grows and changes over time. Whether you are looking for a simple, fun session for your small immediate family, or a larger, more organized session for your family of twenty, I will create images that will highlight your connection and who you are together.

Our family has had the pleasure of working with Kristina for over 8 years now for our annual family photos. Her work is amazing and she brings a fun, energetic personality to our shoots that can get even the most apprehensive person to smile for the camera. We look forward to many more years of working with her and continuing to watch our family grow through the lens of her camera.

Let's get to know each other

Take a deep breath. It's time to connect, relax, and play!

Let's figure out the best way for you to enjoy your images

Before your session, we'll chat!
I want to know more about who you are, what you love to do individually and as a family, and what you most want to capture.

Need help with outfits? I'm here for you! Worried your kids won't smile or will be totally nuts? Don't worry, I have plenty of tips and tricks to make it all come together perfectly.

During your session my job is to let you be you. Whether that means playing games, snuggling, exploring, splashing in the water, or being super goofy or super serious, I'll follow your lead, while gently directing for the best moments, light, and all the best angles.

My sessions are low-key, playful, and fun. A no pressure situation allows for natural interactions, and moments that reflect who you are individually and together.

Following the session, I will be in touch with all of your images within a few weeks. You'll have the option to purchase prints, albums, and more through your password-protected online gallery, and I'm more than happy to help with any big decisions, such as which size print is best over your fireplace or which one grandma would love most as a gift.

We look forward to seeing Kristina because of the relationship she’s built with our children, allowing them to be themselves- it’s always silly and fun (even for mom and dad) with the end result the always gorgeous photos. We love working with Kristina and we are looking forward to seeing her again this summer for another amazing beach sunset photo shoot!
