Nice to meet you!
I'm K.C. (or "Kristine Caroline" when I was up to no good as a kid). I am a left-handed child and modern family lifestyle photographer telling stories through my images and one-of-a-kind custom heirloom albums in Orange County, California. I help families fill their homes with beautiful artwork featuring those they love most. And by doing so, I get to help foster a sense of belonging and increased self-esteem in the children who live there.
I am beyond excited to have been selected as the 2017 "Best New Emerging Child Photographer" in an international competition hosted by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers.
So here’s the thing, I LOVE and have always loved a good story.
You know the ones…where you laugh out loud on public transit while reading Bridget Jones, or sob so hard in the dark theater only to realize you ran out of tissues. The ones where you feel like you’re being given a glimpse in on some private moment or other world.
The story is the reason I prefer lyrics with the melody and that I can still remember songs from my early adolescence more than most of what I studied in Law School. Fun fact: I would be an awesome partner to someone on the Beat Shazam game show!
|The Crow’s Nest is living the dream in Yorba Linda California and consists of myself, my “practically perfect in every way” hubby Tim, our two little monsters Clayton (May 2014) and Ryker (October 2015) and their four legged sisters Mya and Uli. My dad, "Grandpa Bob" also lives with us part time.
We have a loud, busy, messy, chaotic, - did I mention loud? – household which is full of love and big hugs that look more like tackles and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
So much of my inspiration comes from our daily life stories and I am constantly looking for creative ways to capture these fleeting moments.
The best place to follow along with the stories I tell is on Instagram. I typically post there daily featuring a mix of both my client work and personal projects.
