"Kristie took my son's newborn photos at 20 days old because we had two other shoots previously and I wasn't 100% satisfied with his photos. Luckily, I found Kristie and booked a shoot with her the following day!! She even helped me carry baby to and from my car because I wasn't cleared to carry his car seat yet. So incredibly sweet and helpful!!! I was SO impressed with her ability to coach and prep baby before the shoot, making sure little ones arrive sleepy and not alert. I was shocked at how she was able to perfectly swaddle, soothe and position my son over the 2.5 hour period of shooting. Kristie is an absolute pro and her expertise and talent with babies shines bright!!! I've never felt more comfortable with a newborn photographer and the photos turned out fabulous. They're so perfect and my family will cherish them for a lifetime!!! It's so important to capture these precious moments and she absolutely made our dreams come true. On top of all of this, her studio is the absolute cutest!!!"
"We had my daughters 6 month photos taken by Kristie, and I am still in awe of how beautiful they came out. My only regret is I wish we had done newborn pictures with her. Every time I show anyone the pictures they are equally as amazed. She was so wonderful with us, helpful with my millions of questions, and so interactive with my daughter. She was doing everything possible to get great pictures, and the editing look amazing!"
"Kristie is an amazing photographer! She was very communicative throughout the whole process and customized a beautiful set up for our smash cake session. The session was such a fun experience, and being a mother herself, she is such a natural working with little ones. Her turn around time for our final pictures was also very fast. I am so happy we chose Kristie and highly recommend her!"
"I loved working with Kristie, she was very quick to respond to my request for information and any questions I had. She did a beautiful job with our maternity photo shoot everyone who saw the pictures just raved about them. I was not sure what poses I wanted for this and felt that she was great at getting the right poses and she even worked our dog (our first child) into the pictures.
I was not sure what to expect with the newborn photo shoot. How she would ever get all the poses and keep the baby still and sleeping. She did great with our daughter and again came up with several cute poses. She was able to keep her calm during the session as well and she has a lot of patience. And again everyone who has seen her newborn pictures just loves them. My aunt made the comment 'your photographer really knew what she was doing!'
Not sure I could thank Kristie enough for the beautiful pictures I have to remember my pregnancy and daughter by."
"Kristie is Amazing! I recently had my son's newborn pictures done, and she was so patient and sweet with him. She did not rush, and the session was all about my son. I felt relaxed and comfortable during the session, which made it fun for me too! I nicknamed Kristie the "baby whisperer" during my session. She had a natural calming effect on my son to get just the right poses. She is also creative, and has a passion for photography. I would definitely recommend Kristie Smith Photography to anyone! Thank you Kristie!"
"Kristie is amazing. If you're questioning whether or not newborn photos are necessary ... yes, they are. You need precious photos of your tiny baby every step of the way, but the sweet, week-old baby stage lasts 2 seconds and then it's gone forever. I personally had to have high quality photos of my son and Kristie made that happen in the most perfect way. His sweet features come back to life for me when I see his newborn photos throughout my home. You'll never regret the investment of quality photos of your family."
"KRISTIE IS AMAZING!!!! Since the day I searched for her after a friend recommended her I just felt in love with every single one of her photos and I knew she was the one I was looking for. She provided all the information I requested right away. She provided me options to where I wanted to take the pictures, we had to reschedule our section due to bad weather and she managed to work with me to get the pictures done ASAP since I was already 39 weeks and I was scared I was going to go into labor before my maternity photos. We had a great time with her she made us feel extremely comfortable and helped us with every pose. After I had my baby I sent her a text letting her know baby was here and a week later we were already taking our newborn pictures, my baby for some reason was fussing trying to figure out what was going on around him that wouldn't fall sleep, I held him for a while and nothing, I gave him to her and he fell asleep right away. The experience was just amazing, watching how she would place him it was just too adorable. I was extremely anxious to see the final pictures and I couldn't have imagine it any better they were just perfect. Thank you so much for everything Kristie I wish you didn't had to move away but I'm sure you will do great wherever you go, you're an amazing photographer not everyone has that blessing and God gave it to you!!! Thanks for such amazing memories of my huge belly and my little one."
"Amazing! We are truly blessed to have found Kristie! Kind, patient and talented even with a very alert newborn and a very grumpy three year old! She still managed some incredible photos and I look forward to booking our next session with her as well! Highly recommend!"
"Kristie did an amazing job with our newborn photo session! Not only did she take beautiful photographs of our daughter, she took the time to make sure our daughter was in a good mood and looked beautiful for the session. We were completely happy with the entire experience, especially the beautiful photographs. We will be back for more sessions and recommend Kristie for your special moments!"
"Kristie was so sweet and took such beautiful pictures of my daughter! My normally happy 8 month old woke up just a little grumpy that morning and I was initially worried about the photo shoot we had booked for that day but Kristie did an amazing job with her and you'd never know she was anything other than smiles and sunshine from the pictures! I am so pleased with our session and all of the gorgeous pictures!"
