Hello there!

I am Kristen, founder and photographer behind Gingersnap by Kristen.  You might be wondering why Gingersnap by Kristen, it is more than just a "cutesy" name.  I proud to say that I have three precious ginger babies.  Yes...3 little red heads!  My desire to capture them and their innocence during childhood is what led me on this journey.

I am passionate about


"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

My Family 

I met my husband in college, we have been together for nearly a decade.  We have three beautiful children, Joel (6), Jordan (3)  and Hannah (1).  They keep me busy but I love every minute of being their mom.


I am sure I am addicted by now, I should probably seek professional help:)


I read really fast, my husband thinks I am a speed reader but really I just skip all the boring stuff most of the time.  And let's be honest, I am not sitting around reading War and Peace.

The Beach*

Nope, there is no smudge on your screen that is an asterisk next to "The Beach." Let me explain, I love love love the beach.  I love the sounds and smells and the feel of the sun on my skin.  What I don't love...packing up enough sand toys for three little ones, attempting to provide a sand free lunch for my kiddos, because no matter how hard I try sand will inevitably touch the peanut butter and jelly sandwich which fellow moms know is no bueno.  Lastly, the birds.  Yup, I have an irrational fear of those rats with wings that fly in the sky.   Oh! And there is always the possibility of me being eaten by a shark ;)

Exclamation Points!!! 

Okay, so I wouldn't necessary say I am passionate about them BUT I use them quite frequently.  I promise I am not yelling at you.  Why use them???  No reason other than I love to be happy and what better way to convey that in text than a well placed !.
