BEHIND THE LENS

Kristin is a self taught California based lifestyle photographer who found her voice through her passion for wild places & her love for capturing moments in their truest form, bringing them into a forever existence. Her drive to tell stories through her imagery fuels her fire for life & pushes her to continuously create & seek connection.

Adventure has always been in my blood but photography found me at the age of 14. An old Canon film camera landed in my hands one family vacation to the iconic Yosemite National Park. I was hooked. The valley inspired me and I fell in love with the outdoors, fell in love with visual story telling, and found what I was being called to do. But it wasn't until 2017, on a trip back to the valley of granite where I recognized I could make this my career. Growing up in Florida, I found myself dreaming of elsewhere. The whole world actually. After wrestling with the "what if's", I made the move to the opposite coast: California. Eager to grow in my craft, I strive to say yes to all I can, seek out collaboration with other ambitious creatives, and gather as many stories as I can from all walks of life. I was told something that has stuck with me throughout my short life thus far:
"There's no comfort in the growth zone and no growth in the comfort zone."
