Kristen did two of my branding photography sessions and blew me away both times. I could not believe how proud I felt of my life and my passions after seeing the visual imagery that captured just how magical my life really is. Thank you Kristen for inspiring me and for capturing my essence completely.

Kristen is a consummate professional. She helped us bring our brand to life. We consistently receive praise for our branding and marketing imagery, thanks to Kristen of StoryMaker Photography. You don’t have to spend a fortune for beautiful and elegant branding, but with StoryMaker, it will look like you did.

I needed professional photos for my new business, for both social media and website use. I chose Kristen as my photographer as I have always thought she has a great eye. The photoshoot was such a fun day! With her relaxed, fun-loving manner, Kristen kept me at ease and laughing throughout the whole experience. I received the photos in a timely manner and they are excellent! It was tough to choose the ones I wanted. Thanks, Kristen, I will definitely do it again!

Kristen was amazing. She took the time to get to know me so she could capture images that best reflected my personality and desired brand image. She is clearly engaged by her work and tries hard to take fantastic, creative shots. It was tough to select which shots to keep because so many of them were awesome. Turnaround time was quick too. Overall, working with Kristen was delightful and I would hire her again in an instant.

What a fun experience!  Kristen made me feel so at ease in front of the camera.  She was able capture the essence of who I am & what do – and provided me with a much more interesting photo portfolio from which to choose headshots & branding photos for the company website. She has a knack for bringing out the best in you with her encouragement and positivity!

I am NOT someone who is comfortable in front of a camera and I had no idea what I was doing, but Kristen’s questionnaire responses to my questions helped soo much. During our photo session I felt beautiful and my photographs turned out amazing. It was pretty difficult to narrow down the number of photographs that I wanted to keep. She made sure to include each and every possible scenario that I had thought of or liked. Hire Kristen! You won’t be disappointed!

The results from my branding photoshoot with Kristen are stunning. My entire experience from start to finish was so much fun! She is extremely professional and very relaxed which made me feel at ease. Kristen is personable, creative, enthusiastic and trustworthy. She has the skill of making your vision come alive and knows exactly how to capture the moment! I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone and everyone who is looking for creative photos for their personal or business brand.

Having had an earlier connection to Kristen and her graphic design business made it easy for us to choose StoryMaker Photography. We’re so pleased that we went with her for our seasonal shoots. Kristen asked for and listened to what we were seeking in terms of the overall branding project. Essentially people, with food, enjoying themselves. And wow did she kickass! She remained positive, fun and encouraging to our models at both photo sessions, which must have felt like she was herding cats sometimes. When – only a week at the most later – we saw the multitude of excellent photos, we were overjoyed. Thank you X 1000 for your lovely self, your good eye and your professionalism.

Kristen did a personal brand photoshoot at our yoga studio and the results are amazing! The students were completely at ease as she moved around the room taking shots from various angles. The photos turned out to be just what we hoped for. She captured the peaceful mood expressed in the faces and postures of the students while also bringing a stylish and unique perspective to details such as hands and feet and props. We use Kristen’s photos extensively for posters, social media, advertising, and as framed works of art in the studio. Arrive Yoga & Mindfulness now has the kickass brand visuals we were hoping to show the community and we have Kristen to thank for it!
