what's your story?

 

let our images give a voice to your story

 

Oh hello there, and thanks for stopping by! I’m Kristin and I love a good story.

 

If you would like to share yours with me, I would love nothing more than to learn it and the opportunity to capture you, your loved ones, where you’ve been, where you’d like to go, and how you see the world and yourself in it. Or how you’d like to be seen. 

That is what Sonder is about: 

It happens to be a German word fittingly meaning “special”. Because everyone has a story. And everyone’s story is unique and special.

 

Is yours just beginning? Or completely changing? Are you marking a milestone or grieving a loss? Have you won a battle or are bracing yourself for one? Hello to you seniors, littles, survivors, lovers, brides, mamas to be, new mamas, growing families, changing families, entrepreneurs, and boss ladies making your dreams come true.

 

Whether yours is a season of joy to capture and celebrate or a season of pain to process. A time to reinvent the way you view yourself or it’s your season of creating your life and your world as an entrepreneur, I deeply appreciate you sharing it with me and letting me capture it thoughtfully and with love through my lens. 

 

I have a passion for human connections and strive to capture them in an artistic way. It brings me deep joy to provide my clients with images that candidly capture their most precious memories and connections while simultaneously creating a piece of art for them to cherish forever. To have a tangible reminder of their own beauty and that of those they hold dearest. 

 

Let’s capture your story and the complexities of your very own art of living!

"Kristin helped me see my smile in a way I never have before. I felt comfortable, confident, and empowered while shooting with her. Her laid-back disposition helped me to relax and reflect on the achievement of high school graduation!"

"What a fantastic experience! Kristin made it super comfortable and so easy for us to be captured together, almost as if she wasn't there. We love her style and creativity and the images we received were better than we could have ever imagined. We will always choose her to capture our special moments!"

"This photo pretty much captures the essence of our relationship. When I saw this photo for the first time, I couldn't believe how one photo could capture so much. This photo Kristin took of us, will forever hold a special place in my heart by reminding me of the guy I fell for years ago, the guy that always finds a way to make me laugh no matter what. Thank you, Kristin."

"I couldn't believe how beautiful I felt when I received my photos! They really helped me feel better about myself and they gave me a little confidence boost. I had rarely ever shared a photo of myself, but I really wanted to show these off to everyone!"

Chamberlain

"Even though we never met Kristin before, she somehow made us feel incredibly at ease and comfortable. She captured our sweet moments and love in a way that hasn't been done before. The moodiness and feeling you get when you look at what she has captured makes you want to capture all the special times in your life. We were blown away by the pictures she took! We wished we would have used her on our wedding day! Thank you forever!"

"We had a wonderful family photo session with Kristin Sellman this week in the beautiful sunflower field in Cottell Park. I am in awe of her ability to capture our joy, warmth, and mostly, love. These pictures capture a moment in time and document Eloisa at 7. I'm so thankful to have them."

"When I saw my photos, it was like having all the thoughts and ideas that had been swirling around in my head and heart about what I wanted to be and do with my future business adventure come to reality. The photos made me believe in myself. She captured how I wanted to be seen by the world and I am forever grateful for that."

"Kristin allowed me to feel super comfortable during our time together. She used natural light during the photoshoot which turned out beautiful. Kristin is funny, made me feel at ease, she helped me decide on wardrobe choices and fixed my hair and poses when needed, it was like having my photo taken by someone I've known forever. My goal was to have a few new professional headshots and enjoy some girl time, the homemade crepes were a delicious surprise too! I would recommend booking a session with Kristin to anyone wanting to feel pampered and seen, in beautiful natural lighting."

Lindsay

"Capturing the birth of your child is one of the most intimate and personal experiences you can share with someone. Kristin was the perfect choice! She tastefully and respectfully shared this beautiful moment with us. Being able to look back on the moment my daughter entered the world with such beautiful photos is something I will cherish forever."
