hi there!

Life is full of little moments that turn into big memories. Whether you’re starting a grand new adventure by graduating high school, getting married, becoming a parent (or even a grand-parent), or just want to celebrate turning another year older. There are so many memories to be made and captured, and that’s what I’m here for! As a parent I know all too well just how quickly life passes us by. One day you’re bringing home this small squishy baby and the next day you’re holding back tears as they insist on walking into the first day of Kindergarten by themselves. I'm here to help you freeze the big moments (and all the little moments in between) so that you can cherish them for years to come!

hello

Hi! I'm Kersten :) I'm a thirty year old momma of two amazing kids and a wife to the most amazing man I've ever met. If I'm being honest, being a photographer wasn't something I dreamed of when I was growing up. Even though I was the girl that always had a camera in her hand in high school, I didn't truly consider photography as a career until 2011 when my daughter was born. I started out just documenting my daughters every milestone, but that quickly turned into doing the same for friends and their families. 

Flash forward to now and I can honestly say that I couldn't imagine doing anything else... except maybe being a baker but we'll just keep that one as a hobby. Over the years I've photographed everything from babies and children, to couples, families, boudoir, and even weddings. What I've discovered is that my true passion when it comes to photography isn't a certain type of session, but in the emotion behind it all. When it comes to capturing moments, both big and small, the love and happiness is what I'm here for!

"Kersten made me feel so gorgeous. She was so kind and helpful with posing and positioning to make sure my body looked perfectly flattering. I’ve had two shoots like this done previously and these are definitely my FAVORITE!”
