“The first time we met Kristen was when she took pictures of our newborn son. She was able to find time for us even though it was kind of last minute and our son was already almost 3 weeks. Kristen agreed to drive over an hour away to our house. She was so prepared for the photo session – baskets, outfits, sound machine and heater!  The most recent photo session we had in Canterbury park this fall. Once again Kristen agreed to meet us half way and meet us in the park not familiar to her. She was instantly able to find beautiful spots for us to take family pictures. I absolutely love the pictures and there are so many of them that it is hard to choose from. Still debating on which once to print and hang on the walls. Kristen loves what she does and goes above and beyond every step of the way. We are looking forward to many more family photo sessions with Kristen.”

“I can’t say enough great things about Kristen! She not only made our experience
enjoyable and fun, but the pictures turned out beyond what I could have asked for. She was so patient and understanding when my daughter needed a minute to just be crazy, and really read her cues. She listened to everything I wanted and I am in LOVE with the result. Her customer service and professionalism also stand above the rest in my opinion. It is safe to say we will be using Kristen for our next family shoot, and you should too!”

“…we just moved to the area and really wanted to find a photographer we can grow with each year. I am so happy we chose to go with Kristen! She was absolutely amazing with the kids and was able to capture amazing pictures even when my daughter was obsessed with collecting sticks the whole time. She maintained fantastic communication from the moment I sent my first inquiry until we received all of our photos. I will be using her again in the future.”

She was very patient with our 3 and 1 year olds.  Not only did she bring great ideas and props for our fall session at Spring Lake Park, she also embraced our props and thoughts as well. Kristen provided a quick turn around of our photos; even a few within a day for us to use at a birthday party. We were very happy with the entire process and would gladly recommend Kristen for family sessions.”

“From start to finish, Kristen made this an amazing experience. I had wanted family photos done for a while, so I was so excited! I ended up having to cancel and reschedule due to my son being extremely ill on the date we had booked. Kristen was nothing but helpful, understanding and super sweet!! We ended up re-booking and I couldn’t be happier with the pictures! I can’t even explain the amount of people calling and texting me asking me about her info!! She is so amazing with kids, my boys felt so comfortable and were themselves the whole entire time, having so much fun! She was so knowledgable about the sunlight and backgrounds/views where we were shooting, that I didn’t have to worry about a thing!! I will for sure definitely be using her again in the future!! As well as recommend her to everyone I know. Kristen, thanks for everything! And you now have us as a ‘regular customer’!!”

“We decided to go to Kristen Calgaro Photography for the first time because it had been a while since we had pictures done of our kids and we wanted an updated photo or two. We booked a mini session with Kristen and we were very impressed! She was running on time, well organized, had many options for props, and readily took suggestions from our kids on poses. We never felt rushed or cramped as we had in the past with other photographers. We ended up with many great shots to choose from and couldn’t wait to do another shoot with her.

Since our first session, we have worked with Kristen on two additional photo shoots. Once with just the girls, and most recently we had family photos done. At our family session we got some great full family pictures and some of just the kids. Kristen made sure to take individual pictures of each child and worked with each one to make them feel special and listen to their opinions. I really value that because every child has a unique personality and capturing that is so fun! It was hard to choose which photos to purchase in the end.

I would highly recommend Kristen Calgaro Photography. She is so easy to work with, gets proofs back to clients in a timely manner, and does an overall beautiful job.  We appreciate having these lovely memories because kids grow and change so quickly!”
