Hello Beautiful! I am so excited you decided to stop by today. If you love fresh brewed coffee, a killer sunset, a great love story, and salty ocean air - we might be soul mates. I'm a big believer that the small ordinary moments are what ultimately make our lives so extraordinary. That happiness comes from humble roots and a grateful heart, and that the world needs more of exactly who you are. I believe in always choosing kindness, that beautiful light is worth pulling over for, and that those in-between moments of genuine laughter, connection, and emotion are the ones we treasure most.

If your ready to create some memories, get in touch! I can't wait to hear from you! 

Based on Vancouver Island, in beautiful BC

hi, I'm kristy

You want your session to be about making memories, sharing some laughs with your loved ones, and documenting your family as you are now, in all that beautiful chaos. 

You believe in documenting this beautiful life, and love filling your home with family photographs worth passing on for generations to come.

You're not a fan of overly posed images, but still want some gentle direction to make sure you're looking your best so that the images we create together can stand the test of time.

We might be a good fit if,

The middle child of three, I grew up watching my dad always behind the camera, eager to capture every waking moment of our lives. From the bookcases he filled with family photo albums, to the dozens of VHS tapes piled upon the living room floor, he documented everything from hockey games to dance recitals, to summer camping trips, backyard shenanigans, and every holiday, birthday and Christmas in-between. I remember being a kid and asking him why he always had the camera out when mom so clearly was not a fan of being on film lol, and his answer was simple: One day we'll look back through these photographs and tapes and realize it was all the everyday moments that made life so grand. As a kid, I thought that was as good of an answer as any, but as I grew older I realized how much I loved looking back on those memories. How close I held them to my heart, and how I wanted to spend my days capturing these moments of love, adventure, chaos, and beauty. 

As I fell more in love with photography, I realized being behind the camera was where I felt the most alive. Instantly Classic Photography was born while sitting in the bear chairs on my parents front porch. Wind chimes blowing, bundled up in a blanket and dreaming up what I could name a photography business. I had a love for black and white photographs, a timeless classic look, and loved to capture the unexpected moments. My dad suggested Instantly Classic, and I fell in love with the name. To me, it encapsulated not only the timeless, unscripted style that I loved - but also the feeling of knowing that a photograph will be loved even more so in the years to come by future generations. 

Instantly classic,

a love story.
