Kind Words

My heart is overwhelmed every time a client shares their experience with me. I am always blown away by the time and effort they put into providing this feedback and I know it has made a lasting impact on their lives and mine. Here are just a few of my favorites.

Had Me in Tears!

“When I found out I was expecting my 3rd baby, I knew I wanted to do something different; I had done the maternity and newborn photo sessions with my first two children. I began looking at birth photographers around Calgary, and instantly fell in love with Kristina’s work. The video’s from previous clients had me in tears, and I knew that I wanted that for my family. Kristina did not disappoint. Every detail of our slideshow is perfect, and I can’t watch the photo’s mixed with video clips without being transported right back to that day and the raw emotion of meeting our little girl for the very first time. The song that Kristina, and friends, created for us is an amazing lullaby and something that we will sing to our girls and hopefully some day they will sing to their children. I am so happy we have these memories captured in film to share for our lifetime. Thank you so much Kristina!” - Priscilla (Birth Story)

“When my wife told me that she had hired a birth photographer I was a little skeptical. We had done newborn photo’s with our first two children, why couldn’t we just do that again? Plus who would want to look at our birth photo’s, besides us, anyways?! When we watched the slideshow for the first time I was blown away! Not only did Kristina capture the raw emotion of meeting our little girl, but she was there when our older girls arrived to meet their new baby sister. The photo’s were tasteful and family friendly. This was such an amazing investment." - Mike (Birth Story)

So Ecstatic!

“I have loved Kristina’s work for some time now, I loved seeing the beautiful use of light, I loved seeing the connection between the subjects and I loved how she composes her images. On the day of the shoot my 3 year old decided not to nap and decided he was going to be shy and tired. At this point my dream of beautiful images was gone, I didn’t expect anything great because of the mood he was in. We met Kristina and she is so calm and so easy going, she was great with Noah and he came round to adoring her in minutes! At the end of the shoot he even asked her to come home with us, which he has NEVER done other than with his little buddies, so I know he had a great time and that she made a huge impression on him! We had such a lovely evening. Then I got our photos, nothing could have prepared me for how I felt about them. I saw the beautiful light that I always see in her photos (because let’s be clear she really is a master of light) but I saw love and connection in our photos, I saw our personalities in our photos. I don’t think we have ever had photos that show Noah being Noah more, she managed to capture this age perfectly. I honestly can’t believe what she captured for us and I’m so happy and so ecstatic that she managed to capture us like that. I couldn’t recommend Kristina enough, but I also know I don’t have to, her photography speaks for its self, looking at strangers photos I can see the beautiful pictures and I can also see the love and connection in them it just didn’t prepare me for the joy I would feel when they were my own family. Thank you Kristina!” - Jemma (Family Session)

Blew Our Minds!

“It was like it was meant to be. We contacted Kristina last minute (literally) to see if she was available to photograph the birth of our second child. Labor progressed quickly at at home and we were not able to make it to the birth center as planed. My husband contacted her to relay the news that we would be delivering at home. She made the trek to our home and I greeted her between contractions. As soon as a saw her, I knew we had made the right decision for a photographer. She was calm and collected and her eyes told me that she sympathized with what I going through. Throughout the L&D, I didn’t even realize she was there. I remember thinking, I wonder if she’s taking any pictures? I didn’t notice the shutter sounds and her in my space. Once our daughter was born, we got the chance to visit for a sec as she went about doing her thing. I remember her saying “this is how labor is supposed to be – real”. The sneak peak pictures completely blew our minds and the video pushed this momma over the edge . . . The lyrics, Kristina’s sweet voice, and the precious images she captured – it was more perfect that we could’ve imagined. She has a God given talent of preserving the most beautiful of memories. I will be forever grateful that our paths crossed. Thank-you again Kristina . . . You have the most precious role in Livy’s birth story." - Kristin (Birth Story)
