I'm Kristen :) I am a wife, mother, lover of nature, good books, and creating beautiful images! Once I discovered my love for photography, I felt I was finally able to express my voice in this large, beautiful world we live in. Being able to photograph two people in love makes my heart melt and being able to capture a family as they grow over the years is the biggest honor I could think of.  

I am married to Joe, my complete opposite, and together we have a four year old son, Colin. We live for early mornings playing with him and helping him discover the world. You can see my two men in a few of the photos on the right! Also seen is my amazing assistant, Ashley. She is the second half of Kristen Winkler Photography. Together we make such a great team and I don't know where I'd be without her!

I come from a very large, artistic family; which explains why I spent my years up until recently dabbling in every medium possible. Dance, gymnastics, drawing, painting, sewing, a little bit of graphic design and singing just to name a few. It wasn’t until about four years ago that I discovered photography. I loved taking pictures but never thought about starting a business with it. In September 2012, my very close uncle passed away. My cousins and I spent hours going through hundreds of precious photos trying to decide what to display on a board at his funeral. It really hit me how important pictures are, and how they will always be a remembrance of a certain time and place that you hold dear. Marc had always told us kids that whatever we wanted to do with our life, whatever dreams we had, to JUST DO IT. Three months after his passing, Kristen Winkler Photography was born.
