Howdy
    Y'all

I'm an ocean girl at heart but lucky enough to have been raised in the mountains of Colorado.  My love for the ocean brought me to Texas A&M at Galveston where I earned my degree in Maritime Administration, I love Southeast Texas and after college, made Houston my home. In my twenties, I sought out a new adventure and moved to Grand Cayman.  Moving to a foreign country all alone, taught me so much about other cultures, about how to adapt to unfamiliar situations and definitely bow to live on a dime.  I spent everyday in SCUBA gear videoing the colorful reefs, sea life and tourists, providing a timeless souvenir for them to remember their underwater adventure. I learned how to capture what's important in ever changing situations, a skill that I use today in my work and that will benefit you in our session together.  

I love being outside, swimming and have competed in over 15 triathlons (mostly sprint, but twice I challenged myself and completed the Olympic Distance.)  You can often find me walking the bayou trails with my Giant Schnoodle, in the pool with my kids or happily chasing tortilla chips & queso with a delicious margarita!

Hi, I'm Kristen! 

Nice to meet you

The ocean and natural light

A great photo captures the essence of the person in their most natural element. For me, my soul place is the ocean.  I've lived on Galveston Island, Nantucket Island and Grand Cayman Island, where the ocean has always provided a space for me to center myself and find peace.   It has also served as a source of inspiration in my creative process. Anytime I'm in a creative rut, putting my feet in the sand and listening to the sounds of the ocean usually does the trick.

Helping you find your personal story as a creative entrepreneur

Behind every brand is a personal story which drives why you do what you do.  It's an honor of mine to get to be a part of telling your story through photos that capture the heart of your brand.  I started photographing others as a junior high yearbook photographer and really have never stopped.  My experience as a photographer includes shooting over 100 weddings, kids, families, sporting events and even tourists, sharks and stingrays in the Cayman Islands.  All my experience has led me to my true calling of Personal Branding, Headshot and Event Photography.  I truly feel at home within these niches and can't wait to bring my passion and experience to you.  Let's creatively capture your unique story, background and passion, providing you with inspiring images that showcase your strengths for your business and customers.

Exploring nature and being outside

When I'm not behind the camera or carpooling to the kids events, you can find me relishing in the Great Outdoors!  I love riding bikes with my family, exploring local nature reserves and parks, or just soaking up the rays in our backyard pool.  I was raised a Colorado girl, exploring the mountain trails and camping under the stars.  Now in Texas the adventures look different (never saw an alligator on my mountain hikes) but I love all South East Texas has to offer.  My love for the outdoors has only increased with time and now I truly treasure the outdoor adventures we're forging for our family.
