Thank you for your interest in my photography! I’m happy you're here!



My name is Kristin. I am a New Jersey based award winning portrait and lifestyle photographer. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my passion with you by capturing unforgettable memories that you and your family can treasure forever. 

I take a natural approach to capturing the love of a family at all stages of their life; whether that’s a couple starting their life together or a family celebrating those special milestones. My goal is to always provide you with a wonderful experience. This includes high quality prints, beautiful and unique products and a fun session!



I absolutely love assisting my clients with turning their portraits into works of art to be displayed in their home. I only offer products from professional labs that excite me, both with their craftsmanship in their finished product but also their ethos! 

In order to provide you with a unique and timeless piece of art, I work with a number of vendors and labs that offer a variety of products and prints that will not only do a fabulous job of showcasing your family's memories in a beautiful and timeless fashion, but they also do so in a environmentally friendly and sustainable way.  For instance, the lab that I use for prints and selected frames donates a portion of sales to an organization that works to provide clean drinking water for those without access.


What They Say

  • " Kristin is fantastic!! She made every aspect of our family photo session from start to finish stress free. She was helpful in every detail, even helping coordinate our clothing! She was amazing with our 2 wild boys (who weren't very happy on the day of our session) and was able to capture their happy spirits and even get them excited to have their photos taken! She is a true professional and definitely has an amazing skill for capturing the best moments!! I would recommend Kristin to anyone looking for photographer. "

  • " We used Kristin for a newborn shoot for our baby. As this is our first child, I didn't really know what to expect, and Kristin exceeded all of my expectations. She is pretty much a baby whisperer, an absolute pro, and didn't even flinch when my 10-day old had a huge "accident" all over Kristin's props! She kept on shooting! I would highly recommend her, and have already done so to many of my friends and family members who were so impressed with the images from our first shoot."

  • " Kristin has been great to work with from the very start, and made the photography aspect of wedding planning stress-free. She was easy to reach by phone, and quick to reply to questions and ideas of ours by email. She worked within our budget, and set up a meeting with us ahead of time to fully discuss any concerns and wishes we had, and establish a plan for pre, during, and post wedding pictures. The day was spectacular for us, and Kristin did an amazing job capturing that in her photography. "
