A Beautiful Family

Yesterday I had the honor of taking the Nelson Family photos.  Now bear in mind, I am not a professional. 
I'm just a mom with a camera.  Jeannie is one of my favorite
people in the could I decline?  But once again, it
reinforces that I want to take a hands on camera workshop here
I'm sure there are equally fabulous classes closer to home & less
expensive...if you know of them, please let me know.  There are
just some things I need help figuring out.

Here are a few of my favorites (I took 304's an addiction, I think)


This is Alex.  He told me he loved me.  Melted my
heart.  And because he loves me, I got some excellent photos of
him.  What a crack up! 


This is Emily.  She wasn't quite in the mood, but that's ok.  She's beautiful!


That's his football face...

What a cute family.

My favorite kind of photo...completely spontaneous!  I LOVE it! 


  1. You are one of my favorites too!!!!!! You did a FANTASTIC job, we love
    the phots. You are a professional in my eyes. Thank you so much for
    the WONDERFUL photos.

  2. Those turned out great! I agree with Jeannie...they look pretty
    professional to me too :) I'm sure there's still tons of stuff for you
    to learn, but the pictures you're taking now are pretty incredible!

  3. Kirsten, your photography is top notch! ... so professional-looking!
    Those family photos are THE BEST!!! When's your next available
    appointment? *wink*

  4. Kirsten - I agree completely, your photos are beautiful, and though I
    have already had one favor, would certainly like to be one of the next
    in line for some family photos. Also would be interested in taking a
    photography class from YOU!

  5. A photography class is a great idea!! You have made no secret of how
    you are trying to improve your technique and it would be great if we
    could learn to apply it to our photos. Not all of us have the fancy
    cameras, but just learning to change perspective, turn off the flash,
    etc... is a great way to improve our photos! I see an addendum to our
    class schedule in the future...hmmmmmm.

  6. WooHoo! Another possible participant in a class at AM&M - maybe a
    simple class titled "Photography with Kirsten"! How about it, maybe in
    January after holidays and busy season is over?

  7. Your photos are terrific, you should be proud! I have taken a few
    classes at CCC, and just looked at the Santa Fe website...OMG...amazing!
    If you decide to go to a class let me know, I'd be interested in road
    tripping! The portrait photography seminar in Feb. looks good...
