I'm a storyteller, lover of coffee and flowers, and long drives. I love cuddling sweet babies and laughing with beautiful families.

Years ago I started pursuing my dream to photograph families. This dream lead me to my passion for photographing expectant parents and newborns also. But you see, the thing is, I never just wanted to photograph people smiling at my camera. What my soul really longed for was photographing moments. Moments that seem to come and go and fade in the back of our minds. After having my own kiddos, I realized the only way to hold onto those memories was to freeze them somehow. This is what drives me above all else in my work to this day - to freeze your big, little, and in between moments so they don't have to fade away. 
Aside from being incredible blessed with this job, I'm living this wildly beautiful life with my husband and our two kiddos. You can usually find me wrangling two toddlers, drinking unhealthy amounts of caffeine, and staying up way too late at night. I’m a dreamer, a hopeless romantic, and a girl who lives passionately for creating connection and authentic moments with families just like yours.

Krissy is the hardest working, best quality producing photographer we’ve ever worked with. She is

so easy to work with

and very speedy with turnaround and responding to questions and emails. She puts so much obvious preparation in our sessions, and we never feel rushed and always have a good time with lots of laughter. She is very good at working with our children, as she’s a mother of two and knows all the tricks! Her pictures are always so fresh and capture such candid, precious moments of our family. We are so happy to have had her as our photographer for our newborn, fall, and Christmas photos!
