Hi! Welcome to my blog...

I'm Kristi and I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. I have studied photography at the University of Utah and I absolutely LOVE documenting the precious times in people's lives while adding an artistic spin to each image. I always want to hear what you think so please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check up often!

Karissa & Michelle {mommy and me}

23 May 2012
One of the most rewarding things about being a photographer is having amazing repeat clients that trust you time and time again to document their life.  I have had the pleasure to do a few photo shoots with Karissa and every time I am so insanely happy with the entire photo experience from our time during the session to the images that are created.  Karissa is a beautiful person inside and out and her daughter is exactly the same way.  During this "Mommy & Me Session" it was evident that Karissa has taught her daughter to be a kind, positive and loving little girl which are all traits that Karissa also possesses.  I am so happy to call you my friends! 
Karissa actually came to me with the idea to shoot her and Michelle while laying down.  I LOVE when clients come to me with shot ideas! So cute!
Can't you just feel the love shining through this photo? I seriously want something like this of me and my girl when she is older.
Karissa's roommate Julio came along to help out on the shoot and I am so glad he did! First of all,  I think I should hire him as my next assistant.  He was so great at looking for little details to enhance the photo and he even helped hold me up so I wouldn't fall off a bridge while taking the above photo.  He was also freakin hilarious and he kept me laughing the whole time.  Thanks for coming along and for all your help Julio!

Awww Alex.  I LOVE this girl so much.  She is a little spit fire with tons of personality just bubbling out of her at all times.  Not only is she fun to hangout with, she is also extremely talented.  Alex is way involved with musical theater and she definitely is a triple threat for sure... amazing at acting, singing and dancing.  Along with musicals, she also has a bit of a love affair with all things Disney and she is not afraid to show it!  I love that she is so genuine and true to herself always being so kind, funny and LOUD! (no seriously this girl can talk :) haha Love you Alex, Congratulations on your graduation and good luck in the future!
This is the true color of her eyes; aren't they gorgeous?
Oh yeah, Alex is also very artistic and loves to paint.  I told you she was talented!
I LOVE these two photos... They seriously showcase her personality so perfectly.

Sione Makoni {senior photography}

Sione... Where do I begin? Sione is one of those people that just has a positive energy about him.  Upon meeting him, and seeing him in various situations with his peers, it's obvious that he is a natural leader.  In fact, his leadership skills extend to the entire student body at East High school as he is the SAE Vice President this year.  Not only is he a leader in school, he is also a leader on the football field.  Your parents should be proud of the amazingly talented and kind man you have become.  Good luck next year at Utah State I know you will do amazing things in your future and that you will keep everyone around you smiling!
Sione whipping his hair back and forth...  hahaha
Sione's personality is so much fun and I think this photo sums that up perfectly.
