Kristin Ingalls Photography specializes in natural light, on location photography.  I love to incorporate the gorgeous surroundings of the Pacific Northwest into my images. I only take a handful of clients each month to make sure that each client gets my full attention and a custom experience.

Before the Session
I want to learn a bit about your family and your vision for the session. We will work together to choose a location that will have the right kind of environment to match your vision — a park, the woods, your home, more of an urban backdrop, etc. I am happy to meet with you in person to discuss your vision as well as to show samples of the products I offer, or I have a pre-session questionnaire that I can send via email or go over with you on the phone. This is the time to discuss everything from wardrobe, to time of day, to choosing the perfect location.

During the Session
I use all natural light and enjoy shooting outdoors as much as the Pacific Northwest weather allows. Sessions take place in local parks or other favorite spots outdoors, in your home, or occasionally at my home studio. At the session, I will take time to help you and your kids feel comfortable, and even have some fun. While there may be some direction, the majority of the time we will have a chance to let your children be themselves, capturing more of their personality and genuine expressions rather than askin them to continually look at the camera and smile. Don’t be too surprised if I get down on your kids level, make silly noises, or tell corny jokes to get your child to relax. Sessions usually take about an hour, but can be quicker with a baby who loses interest quickly or can closer to two hours for a child who takes longer to warm up to the camera or for a family session. Newborn sessions can take even longer with breaks to keep your new bundle of joy fed and happy. I will do what I can so that no one feels rushed, and to make sure to get the shot.

After the Session
After the session is over, your job is easy. In about two weeks a gallery of approximately 20 images will be ready for you to review. Again, since I know everyone’s schedule differs, I offer in person or online ordering. If you choose to meet in person you will have the chance to see and hold samples of some of the products we offer. You can see how an 8×10 or 16×24 looks on the wall. If that doesn’t work for your schedule, we will post the images online for you to review and order. Your online gallery is available for just three days so we will work together to pick a time that works for you. Either way, every single image in your gallery will be professionally retouched prior to printing. All images are copyrighted, and it is illegal to save or print them from your gallery. Don’t worry though, you will receive a watermarked “online-sharing-sized” digital version of each image you order. This means you can post them online on Facebook, your blog or what not, but cannot edit them or print them.

Since this is custom photography, there are many options for varied desires and budgets. Collections start at $500. Individual prints start at $30. Contact me for a detailed price list.

About the Artist
I am Kristin. I am the mother of three sweet, spunky, amazing little girls. It is through these three girls that I have come to realize just how quickly life moves and how easily the little moments are forgotten. The desire to remember these little moments pushed me to use my art degree and my camera to document their journey. Let me help document some of your “little moments” too, so that they can be enjoyed now, then remembered and cherished for years to come.

Thank you for viewing my site. I look forward to getting to work with you!
