About Kristin

I am known for fun family portraits + thoughtful brand images + clever graphic design. Does cooking, baking, and playing strategy board games while watching sci-fi make me a nerd?
I live and work in Fishers, Indiana.

 
 

When I was growing up, we didn’t have family portraits. School pictures with no personality and far away polaroids document my childhood. And now we live in a world of selfies on our phone. Even though these are some of my favorite memories, we end up with photos that never get hung on the wall and are hidden away inside our phones or computers.

It is important to me that you have treasures to share with your family for years to come. I want to celebrate and help you display who you are.

My family inspired my love of photography. I loved watching Grandpa’s annual family slide show of my mom and her sisters when they were little. My Dad encouraged me and loaned me his camera until I could get my own. I studied photojournalism, then after college, worked in Christian ministry for 15 years. 

I will discover and capture what you love about your family — quirks and all. The time I spend getting to know you and your loved ones will result in you saying, “THIS IS US!”


As a freelance graphic designer, my gift is making the complex easy to understand so that you can confidently communicate with your audience. Business leaders call me their "secret weapon" because I create solutions in unassuming ways that propel them forward. 

In my free time, I enjoy cooking with my husband John, watching sci-fi tv shows, and playing strategy board games.
