Family photography is an excellent way to tell a generational story. Time passes so quickly, and we can’t help but want to hold onto all the moments of love and laughter that are beautiful representations of lives lived.

Having a daughter of my own, I realize that kids grow up way too fast. Capturing all of Mckenna’s special moments is incredibly important to me because I’ll want to look back on her early days as she gets older.

I work with families to capture their character and authenticity, providing gentle advice and direction so you get natural, candid images. By creating a fun, stress-free atmosphere, I’m able to calm nerves in front of the camera and connect with the people I’m photographing.

My family photo sessions include 20-40 fully edited and print-ready images, available in an online gallery that you can easily download from.

maternity photography

We can do your maternity session either indoors or outdoors—it’s your choice. Whatever makes you feel beautiful in your pregnancy! I’ll capture the shared intimacy and joy of you and your partner as you anticipate this new chapter in your life.


newborn photography

An in-home session capturing the candid life of a new baby. This session also includes some portraits.


family portraits and lifestyle photography

An indoor or outdoor session, perhaps at your child’s favorite place. I capture the natural connection between family members as you enjoy time together.

Each session includes about an hour of photo-taking, although this is flexible because we all know that little ones can be on their own schedule.


All wedding collections include a complementary engagement session, and an online gallery to share and download photos. These photos are fully edited and print-ready. Photos are usually finished within a 4-week timeline. The average collection is $3000. No package is set in stone, adjustments can be made to suit your needs and fit within your budget.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to have maternity photos taken?

The best time to take maternity photos is around the 30 week mark of pregnancy.

What if my newborn is being fussy?

Being a mom myself, I understand. I had this exact thing happen to me during my husband and I’s newborn session. My daughter cried for about half the session. I don’t have a maximum timeline for newborn sessions. Feel free to nurse or do whatever you need to do.

Do you have recommendations for photo locations?

Yes I do, living in the Okanagan for 8 yrs I have had many chances to explore.

I have a dog, can he be part of our family photos?

Yes, of course. Pets are always welcome.

Do you photograph large family parties?

At this time, I only photograph single families. (no reunions, extended family, etc…)

Do you add your watermark to our photos?

No, I will never send your finished photos with my watermark on them. These photos are personalized to you.

Do you supply props for newborn sessions?

I do not use props in my sessions. My goal is to capture emotion and life at home naturally. I want to capture your little ones being cuddled by mom/dad, the insane amount of love and joy you have for them, little keep sakes you have been collecting for him/her, etc…

Kristine was absolutely amazing from start to finish! She scheduled our photo shoot around our sons nap time and was soo accommodating! She met us at a beautiful spot for photos and was just incredible with us and our little guy. She was a pro with getting our infant to smile for the camera and somehow captured our awkward little family into looking so natural! We were so overwhelmed with joy with our final edits and will cherish them forever and ever. She is absolutely phenomenal! Treat yourself and your family by making incredible memories behind the lens with this remarkable photographer!

I have used this company for our 10th wedding anniversary photos. I would give 5 star without any hesitation. The cameraman was punctual, very friendly, and knows how to deal with small children. Also, the photographs we received were unbelievable. All of my family members are satisfied with this experience and I would recommend this company to all.

Kristine is spectacular. We hired her for a family photoshoot with 20 people – including 8 children. Talk about hectic! She was so great and patient and even showed up after having food poisoning the night before! She provided our family with stunning photos that we will all cherish and definitely put up in our home! If you’re looking for someone to capture beautiful photos – Kristine’s your gal! Thanks Kristine!
