Geting to know Cristi Kearn Photography

I am Cristi Kearn of Cristi Kearn Photography. I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember.  As a young kid, I could sit for hours looking through my grandparents' or my parents' old photos studying the composition, the exposure and the feelings those historic family images gave me.  I remember loving an old Poloroid Onestep camera that my family had acquired. I could easily use up an entire box of film in an afternoon. When I was in high school, my dad bought our family's first 35mm film camera, and I thought we had won the lottery. And when he let me use it to take a photography class with Mr. Dreyfus, I was even more thrilled.  It was during those high school photography classes that my love affair with photography blossomed.

Recently, I shot this family session for a client I met through a local sales exchange. My husband and I were selling some items that our sons had outgrown, and Christy messaged me wanting to buy one. When she arrived at my house, she asked me for my business card. It turned out she would be needing a photographer for some family pictures.  Not long after that, we met on my farm in the foothills of the Temecula Valley in Southern California where I was able to photograph her lovely family.

As a photographer, there is nothing more special than being able to freeze time and encapsulate it in a lasting image for a family. There was no exception for the Tillman Family. To date, they are perhaps my favorite clients.  Clients who are authentic, engaging and sweet but who also appreciate your work are the best kind.
