David Krauss, a licensed psychologist from Cleveland, Ohio says,

“I think it is really important to show a family as a family unit. It is so helpful for children to see themselves as a valued and important part of that family unit.

A photographer’s job is to create and make the image look like safe holding space for kids where they are safe and protected. Kids get it on a really simple level.”


Printed photos build children’s self-esteem.

“I love getting my photos back from Kristen and picking my favorites to display in our home. She always takes a good variety, so I can pick the ones that best represent our family and look good on the wall. Kristen captures our personalities, and it’s so fun to see those little faces and personalities as they were at that time, a little piece of childhood that we get to hold onto.”
