The Valero Family | La Verne Fall Mini Session

Sheena and I met while working for the St. Baldrick's Foundation to help raise money for childhood cancer research. I was able to witness the journey of her first pregnancy with this little guy, Evan, and it was so very special to now see her with her second pregnancy and just be a part of such a special time for this family.

For their mini session, we played out in a pretty field and chased after the light. I love that she brought cute little pumpkins and signs to make her session unique. And their outfits.... aren't they just the cutest?! The scarf, the puffy little vest, ahh... all the heart eyes :)

Love these sweet words Sheena sent me after she saw her pretty photos: "Kristen is one of the best photographers we've had the pleasure to work with. She's not only amazing behind the lens, she's also sweet, patient, warm and friendly - she made our whole maternity shoot such a fun and easy experience. My husband and I were happy she was able to capture such great photos of our active 4-year-old and us as a family. Our son enjoyed posing for her and wanted to be in every shot! :) All the pictures turned out beautifully. We were so blessed that she helped us capture this moment in our lives and look forward to working with her again in the future!"

I'm now booking fall mini and full experience sessions! To get more information and pricing, please shoot me a quick email. I'd love to chat :)

The Bownes & Nelsons | Christmas Family Photos

I've been friends with the Bowne family for over a decade! They are so smart, artistic, loving, classy, generous people and I love being with them. It's so inspiring to see how close this family stays, even though they live in three different states and two different countries!

And shout-out to one of my best friends and maid of honor, Kathryn. Love ya dear :)
