Honest moments of connection, captured at the perfect instant, can create your most precious memories. Our goal: images of family, high school seniors, maternity, and couples that transcend pictures to become your favorite forever art.
My view of the world was transformed with my first photography class. Whether playing pretend with my girls, visiting a new place, exploring the mountains, or scouting and working a session, I see moments of color and composition, beautiful light and contrast, sparks of intimacy and wonder. Textures and patterns of the landscape are always an integral, natural part of the story.
Cultivating an experience for you and your loved ones, capturing and celebrating these moments of fleeting beauty, and composing them into timeless pieces for you to enjoy – this is what brings me joy. For more than ten years, my art has been bringing your art to life: heirloom-quality portraits shot in the mountains of the American West. After our immersive alpine session, you won’t be surprised when the magic of these mountains begins calling you back.
Our final result is a tribute to the time and thought you invested into these portraits; the research, preparation, and anticipation will be honored in these images and witnessed by generations to come. My goal is to create enduring pieces, art so beautiful and so timeless that it will easily outlive us both.
Whether you just welcomed your precious baby into the world or your baby is going off to college, portrait sessions are the perfect way to capture and display a particular season in your lives.
There’s no better way to preserve and showcase your memories than through our handcrafted, professional grade, heirloom-quality products.
We will work with you from beginning to end on styling and location to curate final products that blend with and enhance your home aesthetic.
Our family is from Texas, but we come to Colorado with some frequency. We have used Kristen twice now to take family photos. We plan to keep using her every 1 to 2 years as our children grow. Her photographs are spectacular and have given us fabulous memories of our family enjoying the most beautiful place on Earth!
Working with Kristen was absolutely wonderful. She treated us like her most valued clients and made us feel special throughout the entire process. Her attention to detail is so apparent in every image. Our wedding photos with Kristen are by far my favorite pictures we have ever taken. I'm looking forward to bringing my girls to Telluride one day to have Kristen photograph them in the prettiest place on Earth!
Kristen's photography is captivating to the soul. Our large family and individual photographs are lovely. She makes the process of making memories FUN and easy (ages 3-76).
We hired Kristen to take photos to celebrate our son’s first birthday and we had such a lovely time! The pictures are all simply amazing. I have so many wonderful shots I can’t possibly display them all! Kristen is so easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable right away. I’ve recommended her to all of my friends and would use her again and again!
Kristen, I cannot thank you enough for this fun and memorable experience, not to mention the amazing photos!!! You have my highest degree of recommendation. We are just thrilled!
My first ever family photo shoot with a one year-old was seamless with Kristen. She takes care of everything – ideas, location, color schemes, outfit suggestions. And to top it off, her turnaround time was beyond my expectations. Despite the small window, I had my photos with plenty of time to send holiday cards. Her attention to detail, her flexibility to work with our family’s schedule, and her ability to capture great moments blew me away. She is also extremely patient and put us all at ease. I would recommend her a thousand times over.
I didn’t think I would be into this facebook bride-to-be thing, but gosh – Kristen Pierce did such a wonderful job capturing our lives in a 2 hour photo session, I have to brag on her for a second! She was professional and a ton of fun – and we now have countless gorgeous keepsakes to look back and remember this exciting time in our lives!
Best kids shots I have ever seen.
What I thought was impossible has happened, thanks to Kristen Pierce Photography… my 3.5 year-old daughter who generally makes photo-taking into a begging contest involving bribery, posed and smiled like a seasoned model during our session. Kristen is a genius with children, and made Vivian feel so happy and comfortable. Viv was enthralled with the whole process, which was fun and magical from beginning to end. I am BLOWN away by Kristen’s talent!
