At heart, I'm a story teller. I tell stories of swashbuckling boys and fairy princesses. Of family fun and true love. Of new additions, hope, and longing. My photography is bright and happy with just a touch of artistically placed drama - AKA: beauty, fun and sass, and that is just the way I like it. I am a mom of four and happily married to a man I've known most of my life. He is wonderfully supportive of my business and knows how much joy it brings me, (happy wife = happy life). Photography is a light in an otherwise crazy day of making lunches and doing homework. As a busy mom myself, I know that preparing for a photo shoot is so.much.worse than the photo shoot itself and I've set up my business to help busy moms like you skip the prep and end up with beautiful portraits of their favorite people. I take beauty portraits and go out of my way to treat Mom to an extra special day. Each package comes with complementary hair and makeup for one person, and it's easy to add on additional people. I have a vast client closet of gorgeous dresses to treat mom and daughter to, and to make wardrobe planning extra simple. My commitment to Mom comes strait from my experiences as a Mom. 2021 marks my 9th year as a professional photographer. That role has a much different meaning now than it did 8 years ago when I thought I could just show up and push a button. Through my tireless studies of lighting, posing and composition I have finessed my craft into an unforgettable experience with portraits that I am proud to have you hang on your walls and enjoy forever. I have a true love for each of my clients and their families and strive to make sure your every want is fulfilled.
These portraits focus on now, and capture your princess just as she sees herself in her imagination. Little girls who experience the magic of my Princess Sessions light up with joy when they realize just how special they are. This session focuses on fun, imagination, and capturing the spirit of childhood. The portraits are timeless, with a good mix of fun. I promise, you will have many favorites. My client closet has over 200 gorgeous gowns of all sizes from 6 months to 16 years, I even have some coordinating mommy styles. These dresses are from some of the most prestigious designers around the world, and I am always on the search for the latest styles. My seven year old daughter chooses the styles that are available, and I've never had a princess want anything else.
It's time for your family to have portraits that look less like the back of an iPhone and more like beautiful art. Kristian Hutchings Portraits will take care of you from our initial conversation all the way through installing your wall art. My clients gush about the full service experience and adore starting their day by seeing their portraits hung in their homes. This package is for you and your family, whether that is just the two of you or you and your kiddos.
