KRISTIN SEWARD PORTRAITS

EST. 2013

Hi Friend!

I'm Kristin and I've been serving RVA as a family photographer, portrait artist, and photojournalist for nearly a decade. I'm as passionate about building long lasting relationships with my families and clients as I am about providing them with beautiful & meaningful portraits.

"When I say I want to photograph someone, what it means is that I'd like to know them."

FYI

I'm a true homebody. I love hosting big parties but have zero shame in putting myself to bed by 10.

Christmas is my holiday (I start counting down in July).

I love painting and am slowly working my way through our nearly 100 year-old house. It's a form of therapy for me, and so is writing.

I have a degree in music and taught piano privately for years before I ever picked up a camera.

I'm a recovering pastor's kid, a fiery Aries and an unapologetic prankster. I'm quick witted & willful, intuitive & empathetic.

I almost majored in journalism. I love stories and how they link us to each other in our humanity.

"The way she finds and uses light in her photographs makes the simple, everyday moments between a family feel like the most sacred moments on earth.  Kristin has a special gift with families and children- she truly loves kids and knows exactly how to get them to open up and be themselves for the shoot." - Johnanna o.
