ABOUT Krista BPE, BASc, MPA
I'm a Nationally Accredited & Award Winning Fine Art & Portrait Photographer. I find great joy in helping others to realize their beauty and gain confidence through the gift of timeless portraiture. I believe all people are photogenic and it's my task as a photographer to reveal this to you. If you are needing a reminder or a reason to celebrate your authentic beauty and power please consider this your invitation. Let me photograph you and show you the grace that is you through my lens & artistic vision.
My paint brush is a camera, and my subjects are people and all the enchanting things I see in the world. Meditation has helped me to embrace my gifts of sight & enjoyment of the beauty in everyday life. After working for almost a decade in the field of public health, a sudden illness changed the course of my life. Illness brought the gift of time to embrace healing through creativity. Despite holding two science based degrees, it is my absolute (and often unquenchable) thirst to express myself through the medium of photography that has now taken up a permanent residence in my being.
A portrait session with me is an investment and celebration of YOU. Your portrait session includes a complimentary styling consultation for your hair, makeup and wardrobe so you may look and feel your very best on the day of your shoot and in your images. Do you have a dream shoot? Let's try to create it together!
I also specialize in creating custom heirloom quality albums, & wall decor. You deserve to exist in photographs! Contact me to book today, so we can begin the celebration of You & Yours!
