I'm Kristy Berends, and thanks for visiting my photography blog! I studied photography in college, back in the days of film and medium format and gained all the tools to start a photography career but continue to learn and improve my techniques and master all aspects of portrait photography. I love working with people, and believe every person is uniquely beautiful. My style is best described as natural, bright, and relaxed. I love capturing the vivid life of my clients and giving them images that they can cherish forever. I am based out of Grand Rapids, MI but am open to travel the rest of the state, country, and beyond. In addition to photography, what I love the most is spending time with my husband and two sweet sons, friends, and enjoying the sunshine outdoors when it comes our way!
