b. 1986, HK.


Hi, I'm Kristan!

I'm a Chicago-based photo & video journalist. I've been taking photos for just about half my life. I added video to my skill set while getting my MA at the University of Missouri's Journalism School. Telling visual stories is my passion and I'm always learning new and better ways to do that effectively.

I feel so honored that people let me and my camera into their lives and homes, even if it's just for a quick portrait session. I produce, shoot, edit, and everything in-between. I love to travel and would very much like to meet your dog.
