nice to meet you!


SCROLL DOWN

nice to meet you!


I love my children, sushi, sleep, laughing, martinis, Swedish fish (who am I kidding...I love ALL gummy candy!), and polka dots--not necessarily in that order.  Some days I love the martinis best - especially combined with laughing! I secretly love reading tabloid magazines and not-so-secretly wish that I could sleep late once in a while. I'm not thrilled about turning 41 this year. I loathe black jelly beans - oh, and when people are mean to the waiter...ewww.

So what does thrill me? Being a children's photographer, for one.  I adore it. To catch a glimpse into a child's world is to be reminded of everything that is magical and true in their world and, by extension, our own. What could possibly be better?  I see art and beauty in everyday life, whether it takes the form of a silly smirk, a no-holds-barred cry, a crooked half smile, or even a tiny bit of drool on your six-month-old baby's chin.  These details are surely the ones we will remember and treasure always.  To show you the beauty in them is my goal.

I could not possibly recommend Kristine Ryan Photography any higher!! We first used Kristine for a newborn photoshoot for my daughter. Her professionalism and patience were amazing, and the finished product completely blew me away! We now have images of our baby girl during the first week of her life that we will cherish forever! Since then, I have used her for multiple professional shoots for my office, and we are now planning our second photoshoot for our daughter. Her vision, creativity and expertise amaze me more and more each time we work together. And you will most certainly not be disappointed with the finished product!

I love Kristine...she’s been our photographer for the last 9 years. Over the years she has become a great friend to our family. My kids look forward to seeing her every year. She is awesome with the kids, getting down on their level and relating to them. She will spend whatever time is necessary to get the results you want. She even comes to my house and helps me with how to layout the photos on the walls! I know there are a million other photographers these days. They are here one year and then they’re gone the next. Kristine has been here year after year for our family. There is definitely a reason she has maintained the business she has. She goes above and beyond on every level. And the images - well, they speak for themselves

Over six years ago, I was expecting my first child and asked Kristine to do my pregnancy pictures. Two pregnancies later, Kristine is the only person I trust to take the perfect pictures of my three little ones. She has photographed each of my babies as newborns, six-month-olds, and one-year-olds and she is always so excited to see how much they have grown during our annual family photo sessions. Kristine is a patient, funny, down-to-earth perfectionist who can make a sleep-deprived new mom look well-rested, a shy little boy feel comfortable, and a new big brother or sister look like an old pro. We have done shoots in studio and on location and have never been disappointed. Most days, I am lucky to get my three kids in the same grainy iPhone photo with at least one of them looking, which is why it means so much to me to look up and see our walls decorated with beautiful photos taken by Kristine. When I look at her pictures, I can hear my son’s giggle and see my daughter’s personality and it makes me so happy that I trusted Kristine to freeze those moments forever. It doesn’t hurt that she left out the bags under my eyes, the toddler meltdowns, and the newborn diaper mishaps. :)

Session Info


Session Info


Please book your session approximately four to six weeks in advance to ensure availability.  Sessions are limited so that I may customize each session to the particular client's needs and give them 100%.  For newborn sessions, book prior to the baby's arrival.  I'll pencil you in based on the due date and then make room for you in the schedule once the baby arrives.  When clients ask "When is the best time for a newborn session?" I half-jokingly reply, "Stop by on your way home from the hospital." In all seriousness, though, the sooner you have your new bundle photographed, the more smoothly the session will go.  Newborns are ideally photographed within the first two weeks of life. 

Sessions are held indoors and outdoors at your home or at a different, local outside location.  Both parents and children are encouraged to approach the session as a "playdate."  While it's natural to worry about photo shoots, wondering "What will we wear?" and "What if my kid doesn't behave?" there is truly no need whatsoever to stress!  We'll kick our shoes off, maybe have some coffee, and just hang out.  Kids will be kids and that's what I want to capture--their true spirit rather than their "smile for the camera" persona. 

Sessions may last up to two hours and include plenty of time for feedings, snack breaks and the like.  I enjoy taking my time getting to know your child, because once they are comfortable with me the natural smiles and giggles arrive.  While it may seem to all parties (especially the kids!) that we are just relaxing and having fun, the images captured at your session will reveal so much more--truly timeless moments that will become a part of your family's history.
