I've been married to my college sweetheart for 26 years. I'm mom to two talented, beautiful, teenage daughters, so I truly understand this age! My boxer Penny is my best friend, loyal companion and official office assistant! 



a little about me....

meet Kristi

A few of my favorite things...my family, dogs, music, the beach, candles, chocolate chip cookies, fresh flowers, warm sunshine, laughter, my iPhone, sugar free red bull (my coffee), dance, volleyball, and of course photography! Oh, and I'm a Canon girl! 

"be someone who makes everyone feel like somebody"

I work exclusively with high school seniors, so YOU are my focus! Seniors are at such an exciting and unique time in their lives! And I love being able to capture who you are right now! 

I aim to please and my goal is to give you a fun, memorable experience, creating beautiful images and timeless artwork, while providing you with the highest quality boutique products on which to display and enjoy those images in your home for years to come! I put my heart and soul into my business and my art.

What do I need to do to book a session?

The easiest way is to contact me here through my website on the Contact Page. I'll send you an email with further details and my availability calendar. Choose your date, sign the Portrait Agreement/Model Release and pay your deposit to secure your date on the calendar. 

one

when is the best time to schedule my portraits?

They can be done as soon as the Summer before Senior year or up until early April, but keep in mind deadlines such as yearbook photos/ads, sorority recruitment, graduation announcements/ parties, etc.

two

how far in advance should i schedule them?

I strongly suggest the earlier the better. I only accept a limited number of clients per year and my schedule fills quickly!

three

can i purchase digitals?

Digital image files are included in each of my collections. While I totally get the need for digital files, I truly believe you will get more enjoyment from professionally printed products that you and your family can hold in your hands to view for generations. 

four

where do the shoots take place?

I have several great locations around the DFW area that incorporate different styles such as: Classic, Urban, Nature, etc. We will discuss your options during your consult.

five

should i get makeup professionally done & have hair styled?

Yes!! It makes such a difference in your final product. Makeup for portraits is not the same as everyday makeup. Your face is 3 dimensional in person, but on camera, it becomes 2 dimensional and you need the proper makeup to help your features stand out on camera. Makeup artists also really know how to hide skin imperfections. Besides, who doesn’t like to feel pampered?!

six

how much does it cost?

My session Fee is $315, which includes professional makeup application and hairstyling. My Collections begin at $700. For complete price list, please fill out the form on the Contact Page.
