Hello! my name is Kirsten Braaten. I grew up and graduated in Williston. I live here now with my husband and 2 kids. Every since I was 11 I have been posing friends and family and taking pictures for fun. It didn't really dawn on me that I wanted to be a photographer until I was pregnant with my first child. I was working with a lady who had a nice camera and it just hit me one day! I then decided to invest my hard earned savings I had saved up from when I was single, and buy a nice camera and lenses. From there I practiced and took workshops and my passion grew.
After giving birth to my first child Alessandra, I just fell in love with birth and motherhood. I started focusing on capturing births and soon maternity and newborns as well.
Last year I opened my first studio in November 2015 and now, one year later I am in a bigger studio to better fit my growing business and clients needs.
I am so lucky to have been able to work with so many clients over the last year and I cannot wait to see what the rest of 2016 brings as well as 2017!
Thank you everyone for all of your support and for reading a little about me!!
If you are wanting to set up a session, feel free to contact me and I'd love to give you a studio tour!
