I am a natural light photographer, specializing in family/children portraits.  I am currently booking sessions in Tucson, Arizona at the location of your choice--or message me for recommendations!  

I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!) (Go Brewers!!) and have recently moved to Tucson, Arizona with my family. ​ Photography has always intrigued and inspired me, but it wasn't until we moved abroad to Santiago, Chile in 2012 that I decided to make my passion my profession.  We have recently moved from Chile to Arizona and I'm so excited to photograph your family here in these beautiful, new (to me) landscapes. Besides photography, I also love to read, cook, travel, ski & spend time with my family. 

Thank you for visiting & I can't wait to work with you!!!

"Kristen has a style that is so natural, not too posed or overly retouched.  She allowed for the personalities of my twin girls to shine through.  I love the photographs now, and I know I will love them even more in 5, 10 and 20 years when they will transport me back to this time full of silly four-year-old innocence." 

-Natalie B.

"Kristen, thank you very much for the photos.  They express many feelings that sometimes are not perceived.  You and your work are excellent and professional.  Thanks for everything"

-Krys & Marco

"Kristen, my mom and I were looking at these again the other night and I just wanted to say thank you because you really captured my daughter's personality in these pictures. You are truly gifted.  Thank you again!"

"What a treat to be photographed by Kristen Burkard.  Her attention to detail, her use of natural light and capturing moments; those singular expressions that only a mother can truly see has given us a spectacular treasure.  I look forward to our next session with Kristen."
