Hi there! Welcome to my blog. Other than photography, writing has always been a passion of mine. I regularly keep a journal, I'm known for my extra long emails, and yes, I even wrote a dissertation. So, as Kristine Pringle Photography began to grow, it seemed only natural to retire the paper journal and begin this online adventure. I will use this site for posting pictures and stories from weddings and other photo shoots, and also for sharing personal pictures of the people and places I love. To my super cool clients, I am truly honored that you chose me to capture your memories. I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek of your photos. To my prospective clients, hopefully this will give you a little taste of what it’s like to work with me, and the kind of images you can expect. Thanks for stopping by! ~Kristine **PS - to view exclusively weddings, engagement sessions, or lifestyle photography, use the "categories" link above.
I went to college with Sydney and Eric (go Hokies!), and although I didn't know them too well, we have a bunch of mutual friends...many of whom I can thank for referring me yet another beautiful family! When Sydney first emailed me, she mentioned that she loved the use of sunlight in photos, so I thought we should try to shoot at "Golden Hour".
I love the Golden Hour...that amazing time before sunset when everything is just glowing. Unfortunately it's also sometimes the witching hour for kids, because let's be honest, it's dinner time. Well, I have to say that Collin and Barrett did fantastic. We did 2 locations and 3 outfits, and though there were a few hunger cries at the end, it wasn't anything a few fruit snacks couldn't fix. :)
Golden hour, golden hearts...here are a few of my favorites of this sweet sweet family. Enjoy!
Meet adorable 5 year old Collin. He has the cutest laugh.
And the most amazing smile.
5 going on 25. He looks so grown up...like a little model.
Ahh, back to being a kiddo again. :)
What a gorgeous little boy. My camera just loved him...
And his little sister Barrett, who just turned 2. Precious!
Look at those eyes!
Barrett gave some kisses to Mommy.
But when Daddy held her she wanted to be spun around...
Ya think she liked it!?!
Part of the reason we started our shoot at their home was so that we could include their dog Cooper. Just perfect!
Cooper definitely earned his treats that day...
And Collin and Barrett earned theirs. So so cute.
While Barrett finished her lollipop...
Collin had fun running...
And riding his bike. Love that face!
Then after a quick outfit change, we were off to the park. We did a few portraits...
And more candids.
Love the smiles!
And the interaction.
Collin loved tackling Daddy...
And Barrett finally gave him a kiss. So so sweet!
Barrett, you are a doll!
I have no other words.
Golden hour love.
I wasn't sure we were going to get another "posed yet unposed" family shot, but we did.
And this one was just the icing on the cake. Thank you Golden Hour. Thank you Sydney and Eric! You have the most beautiful family and it was so fun to see you after all these years. Hugs! ~Kris
