About Kris

Hey There Dog-Momma!

You made it all the way to “About me”, so you must be the adventurous & curious type.

Yes, I have kids! Their names are Swota & Floki. They’re both adopted so we don’t really know how old they are but Swota’s probably around 11 and Floki is just two(ish).

They are two of the sweetest, craziest pups you will ever meet. Don’t let the photos fool you, they’re not particularly well behaved. No, seriously, off leash? Nice knowing you. Didn’t get enough exercise & playtime this week? Kiss the couch goodbye! So, if your dog isn’t perfectly behaved, or maybe even a bit crazy, that’s just business as usual in my world.

I’m an adventure junkie! The same-old-same makes me crazy. And I think that’s what draws me to photograph dogs. They are all SO different, I never really know how a session will go and it keeps me on my toes. No matter how crazy your dog might be I can promise that in my last 10 years as a dog photographer I have worked with wilder pups and never failed to create heart-warming images that immortalize their amazing personalities.

Kris at various Obstacle Course Races

Getting down & dirty is all part of the fun. Many of my summer weekends are filled with Obstacle Course Races. So if getting the perfect shot of your sweet doggo means rolling in the wet grass, or occasional goose poop, wading through a muddy creek, or wiping dog slobber off my gear it’s just another afternoon of fun.

The outdoor, dog-loving lifestyle brought my husband, myself, and our fur-kids to Colorado in August of 2013. Since then we've made it our mission to embrace the lifestyle wholeheartedly. Any weekend I'm not shooting you can probably find me on a new adventure with my husband, Robbie, and the pups.

I am a Dog-Mom.

I believe that at the end of a rough day nothing's better than a cold wet nose, and warm fluffy snuggle.

I make plans around the fur-kids. Whether it’s this weekend’s outing or our annual anniversary getaway, they’re coming along.

I chose my truck based on how comfortable the dogs would be in the back seat.

And my day begins with Swota singing me the breakfast song, usually an hour before it’s actually time to feed her.

You do a LOT for your dog, you DESERVE beautiful, vibrant, playful images that remind you how much your dog loves you every time you walk into a room.

Welcome to my pack! Let’s get together—
