why we care so much!
You know that feeling you get when you look at an old family photograph? That sweet nostalgia feeling as you are taken back in time to that moment in the photograph, either of your family or distant family members? Yeah, that's why we do what we do. It's why we are passionate about creating beautiful and meaningful portrait art.
Someday you will flip through your baby's album with them when they go off to school for the first time, when they graduate high school and when they have their own babies. And you'll remember...that sweet time you held your brand new baby and the hours you spent gazing adoringly into their eyes and wondering where their lives would take them. It's more than words can express, something that only a split second in time preserved forever can do.
Later you walk down your halls, covered in portraits of precious times in life, each one tells a different story and yet is so compelling you can remember exactly what was happening as the shutter clicked away, and your heart flutters with joy. Prominently displayed in the living room is your family for all to see what matters the most, larger than life love and dreams, pulling at your heart and warming it each time you see it. It is preserved forever through the roller coaster of life, all the highs and lows that make this life worth celebrating and living!
Kristi has been a portrait photographer for over half of her life. It's been a crazy journey, one that took her to New Zealand as a teenager, a yearbook photographer at her high school, getting a B.A. in Photojournalism with a minor in Fine Art Photography, then living in Virginia while her husband, Jay got a B.S. in Nuclear Medicine Technology and then back home to Colorado Springs several years ago. Every bit of her journey has given her the knowledge to capture fine art and loving emotion filled portraits with a journalistic, story telling eye.
Kristi is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, and is a Certified Professional Photographer.
