Thanks for stopping by. It is my joy to bring you photos and artwork that inspire. I am a Jesus following, mom of two, Minnesota-based, natural light photographer as well as self-taught designer.  I love capturing authentic moments and meaningful milestones. I also thrive on creating and designing beautiful announcements, invitations, wall art, prints, gift tags, the list never ends. Meander around and then let's get in touch. I am excited to hear from you!


read more about me

Besides the obvious love and passion for photography and design, there are two beautiful girls that call me mom and a husband who couldn't be sweeter or more hilarious if he tried. I'm a mug-o-coffee every morning type of girl who loves Jesus Christ, spending time with friends and family, playing games, and investing in the lives of others.   

hi there, i'm Kristie

What inspired me to make my once lack-luster hobby of taking pictures into a soul-satisfying job? I was "wasting" time on my phone one afternoon when I stumbled across a man who had photographed his wife's battle with cancer. By the end I was in tears. Pictures had never done that to me before. I instantly fell in love with the power of photography.

Shortly after buying my camera, my first daughter was born, and with that came a wonderful model to practice on. I started to think, why not make a little money while staying home with my girl? But that would also mean I would be putting my artwork out there for people to critique and make judgements on. Psh, yeah right. 

After much prayer and leading from the Lord, I decided I would start my own business and Kristie J Martin Photography launched.

It wasn't until my sister-in-law asked me to design her wedding invitations that I took my hand-painted artwork to the next level. I learned how to digitize my art so that I could create beautiful pieces in many forms, officially adding design to my business. 

I have LOVED working and interacting with people, having a creative outlet, and I am actually ok with the fact that I have a lot of learning and growing left to do- It's what will continue to drive me to be great. I do this for me, I do it for you, but ultimately I do it for Christ. It is my aim to honor Him through this business and in my photography and design.

"Kristie has a natural eye for photography and captures more than a photo but a mood. Photos are important time capsules of your family. I would highly recommend Kristie J Martin Photography."
