I’m very excited to have been accepted by the Littlest Heroes Project.

This charitable organization provides free photo shoots to children with life threatening diseases and their families.

If you know of a family that would benefit from this project, please put them in touch with one of the great photographers worldwide via the website.

I cannot wait to get started with this organization and to start giving back to my community.

A few weeks ago, I drove out to meet Erin and her husband at their home near Orlando. Erin was thirty-five weeks pregnant, but we’d be in contact prior to the shoot for over a month, so I was SO excited to meet her and get to shooting!

Erin has an adorable townhouse with many places for photography, including her very cute nursery. Honestly, I wish every single shoot took place with such beautiful surroundings!

Cool fact: Erin and her husband met working at Walt Disney World. If you look carefully at the photos, you can see some drawings from favorite Disney movies on their nursery wall 😉

Erin and Bo are such great people; you can tell they are going to be amazing parents. And they photograph incredibly well too! At nine months pregnant, Erin has inspired the most emails and inquiries I have gotten so far as a photographer, so thank you, Erin, for making pregnancy look so beautiful and easy!
Their daughter is due practically any day now, so check back in for some newborn shots with the little one!

B’s mom Tammi decided to try something different from the portrait studios and do an outdoor session for her little one’s first birthday. Here are just a few of my favorite shots.


I had a ton of fun during the shoot. Toddlers are FAST!


The outfits that Tammi brought along for her kiddos were adorable. The park was super busy that day, but B. did a great job and enjoyed his birthday balloons.

I hope you enjoy your photos; I know I enjoyed working with your beautiful family.

This photo makes me smile!

Last week, I put in a super long day at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn. I shot Lynn and Chris’s engagement photos there on Sunday, then came back mid-week to work as an assistant to Fran Collin.

Check out Fran’s amazing work here: http://www.francollin.com/

Fran came in from California to shoot the Nestle North American Water convention. This was my first experience with on-site photo printing and RAW file processing in a fast-paced situation, but I had a great time!

I love working under pressure and we definitely got the job done! The Nestle execs couldn’t have been nicer.

I always relish the chance to work under experienced photographer and grow my skills!

I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to Lynn and Chris for the chance to shoot over at Disney Boardwalk. I’ve been wanting to do a shoot there since before I even moved to Florida and launched KWP (Kristen Wynn Photography), so it was so great of you two to come out to my neck of the woods for a shoot.

We had a ton of fun and Boardwalk is just gorgeous.

The day was a bit chilly, but we made it through and luckily, it warmed up a bit by the afternoon.

Also, Lynn’s shoes and dress were really cute and made for a great twirling photo.

I can’t wait to shoot your wedding on July 3rd! We’re going to have so much fun! 🙂

I met Tina and Bobby over on Florida’s West Coast for their engagement photos. And not a moment too soon, since their wedding is less than a few weeks away!

The location was Gasparilla Island Lighthouse Museum. The idea was all Tina’s, and it was a great place to shoot. The West Coast is really beautiful with the color of the water in the Gulf.

Then, Tina came up with the idea for this shot, which I thought was really neat and something new for me. I can’t wait to see some of Tina’s ideas for the wedding photos as well; I just love her style.

We had a ton of fun laughing. I’m so glad I got to know such a cool couple before their wedding day.

And, they were able to pull off this shot without their fingers falling asleep, so that was pretty impressive too!
See you two in just a few weeks for the big I DO’s!

On February 7th, I drove over to Deltona for Melissa and Mike’s big day. Their two adorable little girls were there too, of course, serving as flower girls.

The ceremony was small and intimate, overlooking the lake, with closest family and friends in attendance. It was a bit chilly, but Melissa improvised and just went with it.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day!

Melissa and Mike, please keep in touch over the years! I had a great time meeting you and working with you!

Right before I left for Christmas and on New Year’s Eve Day while I was home for Christmas, I did some photo shoots. If we are Facebook friends, you may have already seen the shots, but I thought I would post them here anyway.


I had a ton of fun in downtown Pittsburgh. This bridge shot creeps my mama out because it looks like they are actually sitting on the side of it, but don’t worry, there is a walkway right beneath them.

I’m proud to have photographed my first wedding solo last weekend. It was an outdoor wedding and the ceremony ended up being after sunset, so it was quite a challenge. I’m thankful to have had the opportunity. I wanted to put the shots up here throughout this post. I loved the lace on Amanda’s veil and the way the light bounced off the inside of the party pavilion and warmly lit up everyone’s faces!Tomorrow, I have one more shoot in the afternoon for a family I met while volunteering for the school play. Then we’re going straight to the airport; I’ll edit when we land in Pittsburgh and get the photos off to Mrs. S and family.

Additionally, if you have Facebook, I have a Facebook fan page for my future business now, so please become a fan of my work if you’d like to stay abreast of sessions, discounts, coupons, and the like.
