Bio Image

Welcome to Forever Captured Images Blog.  

My name is Kristy. I specialize in Portrait Photography for children and families.  I am an award winning portrait photographer based in Encinitas, California, but available to travel. I am passionate about photography and a few other things like family, friends, traveling, good food and my faith. 

Before photography, I spent 7 years as an elementary school teacher.  The experience I gained working with young children has been invaluable knowledge and I am amazed at how much it plays apart of my photography today.  I am like my students in many ways.  My second graders were like sponges.  They were excited about learning and wanted to soak up all they could while in class.  Like my students, I too am excited about learning new ways that stretch and perfect my craft.  In addition, the classroom experience and educational background has taught me how to connect with your child and how to encourage and bring out the best in your child.  I KNOW how to elicit expressions that define your child.  I also KNOW how to capture it with my camera. 

Life is busy but don't forget about what matters most.  There is nothing more important than the ones you love.  Don't wait for the perfect time; capture the moments now.  

I would love to create a legacy of memories for you and your family.  Call and make an appointment today.
