Hello, friends ... I'm Kristi Hileman

After sitting in an office, whether behind a professor's desk or in a courtroom, I came to one conclusion: it wasn't for me. I wanted to be experiencing life, not just watching it go by. So, I put away the law books, and picked up my camera. In the process, I found myself. I am happy when I am creating. Capturing smiling faces, first encounters, or stunning landscapes, I love the experiences of it all. And, I've met some amazing people along the way. I hope to share this journey with you.

Family Photos

"We loved our family pictures! Kristi and Michelle came to us, which was super convenient with a 2-month-old. Kristi captured our family's personality perfectly by letting us have fun and be candid instead of overly posing us. Great experience and great pictures." - Alisha Kilty
