Hey there! I’m Kristin!
I am a stay-at-home mom of one beautiful little girl named Brielle and I’m married to my incredibly supportive best friend, Matt. I also spend a lot of my time photographing some awesome and inspiring families here in Southeastern Michigan. A bit of a self-proclaimed hippie, I love all things vintage and all kinds of music and art. I’m also constantly trying to find a ways to live a slower, simpler life, which is not easy with a busy kiddo running around! And when you add in taking pictures of toddler grins and family snuggles and you have one happy (and incredibly grateful) girl right here.
My photography is all about celebrating family life. I’m a huge fan of real smiles and tickle fights. Of families who are overflowing with love for each other. Of embracing the silliness and getting the wiggles out with a dance party. Of sweet baby yawns and wrinkly little newborn toes. And I especially adore capturing the humor, real connections and beauty of every day life. There is nothing I want more than to create a beautiful and unique set of images that captures the true essence of your family and the love that you share.
About my family:
She: Wife & Mama. Obsessive reader and researcher. Outdoor flea market, art fair and farmer’s market enthusiast. Picture taker. Fixer Upper addict. Lover of real life, true love and gorgeous light.
He: Husband & Dada. IT Master. Fixer of things and protector of his girls. Die-hard Lions fan. Loves good home cooking. Drummer and music fanatic. The best husband and father these Sharland girls could ask for.
Brie: Our rad little baby girl. Inspiration and love of our lives. Future dentist. Or photographer, she hasn’t decided. Would spend every day with her cousins, if she could. Has her daddy’s eyes and her mama’s smile. Drives us crazy and melts our hearts on the daily.
We: The Sharlands. Plus Olive “Dream Crusher” Sharland, our slightly crazy cat. Vegetarian. Spontaneous dance party lovers. Singers of the ABC’s backwards, (we call it the “ZYX’s”). In pursuit of a life lived well, surrounded by awesome people and filled with memories. Experts at snuggling, giggling, tickling and playing together.
Now that you know a little about us, I can’t wait to meet you and capture your family’s story.
