Unlike many photographers whose passion for photography developed long ago as a child, Kristi first jumped into photography about six years ago. She started with a point-and-shoot and then progressed to an SLR and 600mm lens. She has been studying photography and shooting ever since. Kristi is passionate about the natural world and loves to lean about new things. She enjoys shooting all elements of nature, especially birds, and she strives for portrait style images. Photographing hummingbirds using a multi-flash set up has become a favorite of hers. Kristi is a native Texan and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science. She and her husband Mike have a wonderful eight year old daughter named Emily. Kristi's goal is to have truly good pictures that are worth much more than a thousand words.
