Family photography is an excellent way to tell a generational story. Our babies grow up so fast! Let’s capture all those adorable moments of their childhood.

I work with families to capture their character and authenticity, providing fun prompts and direction so you receive natural, candid images. I have two young kids myself so I understand the challenges & stress that can come with family portraits. My goal is to eliminate that, I want to keep your kids engaged and having fun the whole time.

All family sessions include an online gallery with high-res, print-ready images that you can easily download from.

Family & Lifestyle Photography

Family photography sessions are outdoor sessions. I have a list of beautiful Okanagan locations to choose from. I capture the natural connection between family members as you enjoy time together.


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

A newborn session takes place in the comfort of your own home. This is a lifestyle session, meaning I capture the candid moments of you snuggling with your little one and all the moments in between that we call ‘life’.


Baby Announcement

What a better way to announce ‘We’re Pregnant’ then to share some photos with your loved ones. Often couples like to bring ultrasound pics, announcement boards, etc. Make it however you would like!


* Earthy tones and colors are great.
* Avoid bright colors you wouldn’t normally see in nature
* Avoid large logos & patterns
* Pick an outfit you are comfortable wearing so you can move freely in it
* Pick something you love and feel yourself in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best time of day to have my photos taken?

Golden Hour!! This is 1 hour before sunset. If you are looking for photos with that warm glowy Okanagan light as you see in my portfolio images, make sure to book a timeslot during golden hour. When you inquire, I will make sure to suggest the best time slot first.

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

Yes, of course. Pets are always welcome.

Do you have recommendations for photo locations?

Yes I do! Living in the Okanagan for over a decade, I have had many chances to explore. Booked clients will receive a list of location suggestions to choose from.

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.

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…

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.

Kristine took my families very first photo shoot (with a 6 month old that was due a nap) with an actual photographer! She was so easy and friendly to work with and we ended up having such a lovely time
The photos that we received were absolutely beautiful and we can’t wait to share them with our family who don’t live here in Kelowna!
Would highly recommend her and can’t wait to go back again to her next year to get our next ones done!

Kristine offered us a quick and quality family photo experience. We have a super inquisitive toddler who wouldn’t stay still, and we were concerned about not getting any good shots. Needless to say, when we got the results, it was hard to choose just seven images as per our initial contract, so we ended up getting the whole package. Overall, we’ve had a great experience working with Kristine!

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.

Katie Jansen

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!
