radiating heart & soul.

What my clients are raving about…

Kristen has a terrific eye and is a pleasure to work with. I love her photos. I’ve used her to shoot for my bikini line MI OLA and used some of her photos as inspiration to our textile prints. I have plans to license some of her sunset and beach images to do a photographic print. Meaning… this lady makes some great art. She’s also super organized, together and one of the most positive people I know.

When we met Kristen we were thrilled to find someone who knew how to take amazing photos without us guiding her! Her images capture the pure essence of our studio, products, and brand. We are so happy we found her!

I have done several brand photo shoots with Samba to the Sea and each time I am more impressed with the quality and creativity Kristen brings to her work. I own a Multi Style Yoga – a yoga training school and teach internationally. I choose Samba to the Sea for all my photography needs! You definitely will not be disappointed with your choice to do so as well!

And holy moly,

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about you!
Because…
Your business is not just a business.

You’ve worked hard to develop your business into the brand it is today – – it lives, breathes, and radiates heart + soul.

Your clients are not just customers.

They have a passion for life and an appetite for adventure. They are your #tribe.

and you don’t want to settle for anything less than inspiring imagery that fosters that powerful bond between your brand and your tribe.

(Can we get an amen?!)

You want images that are authentically your brand,
images that inspire and instantly transport your tribe to using your products,

images that capture your products in those real life, genuine moments…because product photos on a white backdrop are, simply put, boring and uninspirational.

¡Hola Hola, me llamo Kristen!

I specialize at capturing authentic, inspiring imagery that not only engages with your tribe, but also has them purchasing.

And I’m passionate about kick-ass brands that radiate heart & soul – – brands that have stories to tell and love their tribe as much as their tribe loves them.

So are you ready for breathtaking imagery that genuinely captures your brand?
