Welcome to my blog and my first blog post ever! I'm new at this, so bear with me. I thought what better way to start my blog than to introduce the girl behind the camera.
I’m Kristen. I’m a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville (Go Vols!) where I earned my degree in Marketing. Originally, I’m from McKenzie, TN which is a small town in West TN. My love for photography started at a young age. I was always using my mom’s camera to take pictures of people and telling them how to pose. I was given my first camera at the age of 14 (thanks Dad!) and I’ve been hooked ever since. One of the things I love most about photography is that there’s always new things to learn. There’s always a new technique and editing style to teach myself. I've found that the more I learn, the more I love it. Photography is not always easy, but it is most definitely always worth it. I also love getting to work with people and capture their stories. I want photo sessions to be happy and fun instead of a nightmare that everyone dreads. My favorite photos are always the ones showing emotion and beat out the posed photos every time and I only hope my passion shows through the photos I take.
When I'm not taking photos, I spend my time with family, watching Netflix, learning new marketing techniques (#nerdalert), or going to the movies. I would probably go to the movies everyday if I could. My favorite shows are The Office and House of Cards, I've watched both more than once (don't judge). I'm a sucker for bad puns and pretty stationery, and I'm in Heaven if I ever have the chance to combine the two. I have a tendency to quote movies too much, and I'm not sorry about it.
That's enough about me, I hope to meet you all soon and get you know you better! If you have any questions please ask!
