Get To know Kristen and her Little Portraits

Hi! I’m Kristen the owner and photographer of Little Portraits.


My passion to be a photographer comes directly from my love of being a mother.


There's nothing I love more than family, and babies. So what better job could I have than to be a photographer and capture special moments for other families that will last forever.


I love dressing up the kids, holding the babies and laying them so quietly into a perfect setting. I enjoy every moment talking with the parents and remembering the times when my kids were little. It's that feeling you get when you first meet that perfect little baby. I love looking back and cherishing the gift of being a parent. I want you to have that same feeling when you look at your portraits.
