Hi, I'm Kristina

I'm a PNW native, I was born in Seattle, WA and grew up in Maple Valley, WA and honestly I never wanted to leave this amazing and beautiful state. All my family is here and truthfully I don't mind the rain since it creates the breathtaking nature we get to experience every day just looking out our windows!

I love to take care and help people, it is the big sister to two younger sisters, wife, mother of 2 girls and 13 years of massage therapist in me. I've got a passion for reading, going green, making healthy natural life choices and taking photos of amazing people. While I've dabbled in a little bit of every genre I recently found and fell in love with the lifestyle personal brand photography. I want to help business owners, entrepreneurs, service based professional, coaches etc who value authenticity and want to showcase who they are to their target market. While being in front of the camera is not my favorite thing to do, but I do realize the importance of showing my face, my quieter, extroverted, passionate, small group person personality to you my future client. I want us to connect and work well together.

Let's explore our lovely state and go on a hike, walk around a small or big city, visit a café and go to your place of business. Lets go on an adventure together!

“Working with Kristina has been incredible... I can wholeheartedly credit her photography for significantly improving my marketing, website, instagram, and more. She was able to portray my brand better than I could have asked and not only delivered lifestyle images of myself but also a curated collection of personal "stock" photos I've been able to integrate into so many aspects of my business. This is definitely a worthy investment for anyone looking to grow their business and truly portray their brand in”

“Working with Kristina has been so easy. It's just her and her camera trying to capture those moments of you doing what you do. If she is taking posted positions she is great at directing you on how to position yourself. Lastly all the photos I have gotten from Kristina Pearl Photography have made me feel so beautiful and I absolutely adore all of them.”

“I would recommend Kristina as a talented professional photographer. She will work with you and to get your perfect photos. I was extremely satisfied with her customer service, communication and marvelous work.”

“Kristina was a pro! I felt well taken care of, she guided me through the process and made those small changes and adjustments that were needed to get a great photo. She captured the essence of me and my brand and also took every opportunity she found to grab additional photos of my pup, Zoey!”
