Hi, I’m Kristine.
As an unobtrusive, perceptive and whimsical lifestyle and documentary photographer, I look for the in-between moments. What people do when they are unaware they’re being watched. Those tender, honest, unguarded expressions and gestures that reveal humanity and capture spirit. While I often direct people to find the best angle and light, I tend to stay away from the staged, gravitating instead towards what’s spontaneous and unexpected.
In high school, I found myself spending hours and hours in a darkroom that my dad built for me in our basement and I knew then I wanted to pursue photography as a career. I majored in fine art photography at Bard College, receiving my BA, and went on to become an editorial photographer for Martha Stewart Living, honing in on my love of details and beautiful things.
For the past decade, I have been photographing weddings and families, truly coming into my own as an artist. My work has appeared in prestigious and popular publications such as The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brooklyn Bride, PDN, and Rock n Roll Bride, but the thing I’m most proud of is my ability to connect with people of all ages, ethnicities, genders, religions, and having the honor of witnessing them celebrate a major life event, whether that’s a rooftop wedding in Brooklyn, a teenager's proud moment on the bima, or parents bringing home the newest member of their brood, all rosy-cheeked and swaddled tight.
When I’m not behind the camera, I’m often chasing my two boys (ages 8 and 5) up and down the stairs of our Victorian home in South Orange, NJ, or walking our dog Japser, or doing burpees in my CrossFit class, or eating a macaroon, or let’s be honest, two or three, or planting flowers with my husband and dreaming of our next get-away.
