Well hello there, I'm

capturing the soulful magic of real life for families and couples of all kinds

Hello there, lovely!

I’m a (very caffeinated) momma, a suburban farmer and chicken lady, a lover of joy and poems and slow cozy mornings, and a total homebody. I help my clients savor the soulful, candid, real-life magic moments of their lives – from engagements, weddings, and elopements to the arrival of a new little one and all the family joy that comes with it. If you’re looking for a lifestyle and documentary photographer to capture those unscripted take-your-breath-away-at-their-simple-loveliness moments, I’m your girl. I’m also a creative coach, and I work with photographers and entrepreneurs from all over the world on finding clarity, joy, and profit in their businesses.  Ready to get going? Let’s chat!

Kristyn is incredibly warm and has a magical energy, and our time together felt like spending the morning with an old friend. What was profound was how she saw and documented little, everyday moments for us. Kristyn saw us in all of our beautiful, chaotic, messy, loving, happy glory, and it means the world to me that my daughter can look at these photos later and see that despite all the messiness and imperfection in our lives, our love for her is so complete and perfect.  Kristyn saw us for who we are and gave us the gift of documenting us, just as we are right now, in the most beautiful way. I’ve never felt more seen before, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I can’t recommend her more highly.

There is no other way to put it, but Kristyn simply has a gift. Her use of light and her ability to capture real moments is unparalleled. When I look at our photos, I see people and emotions and real life. What Kristyn delivered to us was beyond what I ever could have imagined. She was a calming presence, never asked us to stage any photos, and in the best way she blended in with all of our family, friends, and loved ones. She was seemingly everywhere – at the reception when I found someone that I wanted to be sure to get a photo with, it never took me more than a few seconds to spot her and she would snap the photos. And despite feeling like she was always near me and easy to find, the photos demonstrate that she made the rounds, capturing almost all of our about 230 guests, each of which was so special to us.
