See Canyon Fruit Ranch is a gem of a venue that holds a special place in my heart. Stetson and I actually celebrated our wedding day at this charming family-owned property, so I was thrilled when Allie and Dallas asked me to photograph their summer wedding here. It’s a small piece of Eden tucked away […]

Every time I try to describe Shane and Sienna’s beautiful July wedding in Browns Valley, I can’t help but call it perfectly blessed.

These two have a young, care-free energy about them that’s contagious, yet they seem so grounded and strong in their love, as if they’ve been together for a decade.

When a recent day trip to Big Sur consisted of driving for 5 hours with my husband and wandering the California coast for the rest of the day without service, it really forced us to pause and helped me rest. There was room to breathe. There was room to actually spend an hour on a beach, eating cheese and crackers and talking about traveling and baby names. There was time to stop for hours while we wandered the rocky bluffs and I practiced filming. My creative heart was so happy!

This lovely family of four brought their Au Pair along for their family portrait “mini” session. We spent about twenty perfectly-timed minutes taking photos before it started raining on us. The kids were so relaxed in front of the camera they made my job seem effortless. I let them surprise me with their silly faces and creative poses and they loved it!

These two are a joy to work with. When we met for the first time at Kreuzberg Coffee in San Luis Obispo, I knew Sarah and Cooper would be more than just clients to me, in fact, we’d become friends. We planned their engagement session at Montaña de Oro State Park in Los Osos on a perfectly cloudy Fall day. Learning more about their lives and love story…

One of my favorite things about doing portrait sessions with young families is every moment is unpredictable. What three-year-old wants to sit still and smile at the camera for minutes, after all? With limited time and light, as well as the distractions that arise with little ones, family sessions have become a rewarding challenge for me.

I'm Kirsten

Filled by Jesus, family and creativity, I spend my days capturing the memories we want to remember for a lifetime. Your story is one-of-a-kind and full of love. It's my passion to help you see the beauty in every moment, from engagements and weddings to babies and anniversaries.

I believe in honest moments, sleeping in on Sundays, and quality time with the ones we love; in images that remind us there is joy in the small things. I believe in gallery walls that remind you of your "why" every day you look at those moments in print. When I pick up my camera, I strive to create timeless and emotional images that tell a story and showcase natural beauty.
