Hello. My name is Kristie. Welcome to Kristie Chadwick Photography!
I have always loved art, from painting to pottery and more. Ten years ago, my ongoing interest in photography blossomed and Kristie Chadwick Photography was born. Creativity is in my genes; my mom is a talented artist, and several family members are also photographers.
I started as a professional baby and family photographer in 2003. One year later, I began shooting weddings. Over the years, I have added high school seniors. I have a special love for newborns; they are so perfect in every way! Weddings make me weak in the knees, I feel like it is my wedding day all over again. High school seniors keep me feeling young. I love getting to work with people of all ages. I am self taught, and use Canon digital equipment.
My kids are my two favorite models, even if they are not always willing. Grant is 9; he is my all-boy fourth-grader. He loves computers, video games, swimming and basketball. Leah is my 5-year-old kindergartener, and she is my miracle. She was born at 28 weeks gestation, after my husband and I struggled through two years of infertility. She is doing great, and has completely overcome her difficult beginning. Leah loves anything pink and girlie. I would have loved to have had more children, but it was not in the cards… so please bring me your babies so I can capture their newness!
I love to read, and hate to cook. I make good use of my two book clubs, but not of my two ovens. I do, however, like to eat. I love candy – especially Fun Dip, Hot Tamales and Good and Plenty – and also enjoy traveling. But with two young kids, for now our travels don’t go much beyond Disney World and Grandma’s house. My dream vacation would take me to Italy.
Thanks you for stopping by and getting to know me. I look forward to meeting you and getting to you know, and hopefully, to working with you, Kristie
