Brand Photography FAQs
What's your photography style?
I focus on creating a fun and stress-free photoshoot experience where you can crack jokes, relax, have a glass of wine, and be yourself. My approach is all about capturing your true beauty – you won't see any 90s-style glamour shots from me!
Where are you based?
I am based in Kelowna and serve most of the Okanagan, but exploring new locations is one of my favorite things about my work! Whether it’s a quick flight or a journey overseas, let’s get in touch to discuss costs and potential dates. I also have clients fly in to work with me!
Do you offer hair and makeup services?
At the moment I do not include hair and makeup services in my brand photography packages but I work with many local talented HMU artists that I provide contact information for when we get started.
How can I look ahhhhmazing in my photos?
We'll discuss preparation, wardrobe, and props well in advance, so by the big day, you can breathe a deep sigh of relief knowing the hard work is over and the real fun begins! All you have to do is show up as your authentic self with a few different outfits/props that make you feel like a total rockstar.
What happens if it rains?
I haven’t mastered controlling the weather yet, but I am working on it. If dancing in the rain isn’t your thing and we can’t find an alternative location, we'll reschedule our session!
Do you shoot indoors?
I believe natural light brings out our most beautiful and natural selves, so most of my shoots are outdoors. While I try to stay away from stuffy studios, I do shoot indoors and make use of natural window light along with some simple lighting equipment. If you haven't yet check out my brand photography portfolio to get a feel for my style.
How will I get my photos?
I’ll email you a link to a private online gallery with your images. After selecting your favourites, you’ll receive high-resolution, edited, and social media-ready photos via Dropbox within two weeks. I can also accommodate rush requests.
Can I order additional images?
Absolutely! You can purchase beyond what’s included in your package either individually or in groups of 10, 25, and 50. If you still have trouble narrowing it down to the photos you love the most, I'm here to help!
Can I request changes or edits to your work?
I’ve spent years perfecting my process, so if you’ve chosen to work with me, I hope my aesthetic captures your eye. While I proudly stand by my editing, I’ll work closely with you to ensure the finished product reflects your vision – that’s my number one goal!
What is your policy on Photoshop?
I am proud to promote healthy, honest, and realistic body images through my editing process. I follow one simple rule: If it’ll be gone in a week, it’s okay to tweak. Everything else stays as beautiful and natural as we see it in person.
What if I lose my photos?
I’ve got your back! I keep an archive of images for one year, but I recommend making backups of your photos through a hard drive and cloud-based backup program.
Should we work together?
My specialty is relaxed, natural photography, I promise you won't see any 90s-style glamour shots from me! Likewise, if you are looking for a photographer who specialises in avant-garde styling, or edits heavily, then I’m probably not your girl (but I wish you the best of luck with your search!)
If you resonate with my approach I think we’ll have the best time throughout this exciting process! My specialty is in delivering an experience that makes you feel relaxed and at ease, but if you’re still not sure, you can book a free 30-minute consultation with me.
What are my usage rights for the photos?
You can use your new, on-brand photos for pretty much anything you like! Use them on your website, social platforms, speaking engagements, book covers, print and online ads, pamphlets, opt-ins, selling that new coaching program, essentially anywhere you need images to promote your brand. As the content creator, I still retain the original copyright so you are not able to claim the photos as yours or sell them outright as if you took them yourself.
Do you really love vinegar that much?
My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Kristen was able to capture the essence of who I am!
Heather, Interior Designer
What a fun experience! Kristen made me feel so at ease in front of the camera. She was able to capture the essence of who I am and what I do – and provided me with a much more interesting photo library to choose from. She has a knack for bringing out the best in you with her encouragement and positivity!
