She is a wife to a wonderful husband.
She is a mother to two wonderful boys.
She is also a photographer.
She has had a history of doing photography since she was a child. For Christmas one year, her parents purchased a flat camera that used 110 casset film. She loved that camera and “took” many pictures with it. As Kristine grew up, teenage-hood took over and she explored other interests for a while. After becoming an adult, she began to take pictures again, which turned into creating images. Now she is a proud member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA), and she has created photographs for many families in Illinois, Michigan, and Louisiana.
How did Kristine discover her style?
One of her favorite photographers is Ansel Adams. Ansel Adams said it just right: “I can look at a fine art photography and sometimes I can hear music.” Ansel Adams was a musician and a photographer. Kristine understand what he says, because she too can see and hear music in a photograph (She also has an interest and play music as well).
Why should you chose Kristine?
You should not only chose a photographer because of their price, but also because of their style. Remember, these images are going to be passed down to future generations. Who do you trust to create your memories? How do you want to invest your memories?
What sets me apart from other photographers?
She does not use trendy photoshop actions. Kristine creates images that are done in the classic way, using light to to create her images.
Her goal is to get it right in the camera the first time. Yes, things can be done in photoshop, but a real professional get’s it right the first time in the camera, and then does subtle touch ups later in an editing program.
She spends hours studying and learning how to better her craft. She is a member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and the CCPG (Capitol City Photography Guild), and both of these groups encourages and helps her grow as a photographer.
Her goal for 2013 is to get her CCP, Certified Professional Photographer certificate. It involves an intensive test and she will have to send in many images for critique and review. It’s not an easy thing to pass! That will be one new thing to show, she’s not your average person with a camera! Another one of her goals this year is to enter her first photographic competition through the PPA and start earning merit points so she can become a Master Photographer some day.
You don’t take a photograph, you make it. –Ansel Adams
