Kristen Mackey

Son Kissed Photography

I graduated college in 2004 with a degree in Business Management.  After graduating, my husband and I moved to Tulsa and I began my career in corporate America where I worked in Human Resources for 5 years.  It was after having my son in 2007 I began my journey in photography.  I was completely inspired by my son; all I wanted was nice pictures of him growing up (hence the name Son Kissed.)  I began taking photography classes in 2007 and that hobby quickly blossomed into a passion.  My Human Resources background has been a great asset to my business; building and maintaining relationships is so important to me.  In addition to my full-time career as a custom newborn photographer serving the Tulsa, OK area, I have been teaching fellow newborn photographers from around the world how to properly and safely pose newborns since 2011.  I have taught over 1000 photographers and have spoken at newborn conferences both nationally and internationally.  I have captured over 1700 newborns in my 9 year career as a newborn photographer andI am truly blessed that God has given me this incredible gift.

Course Content : 

How to determine what your clients like and photographing for them.  Overcoming photographing for ourselves.  I will go through my entire process from client inquiry, posing and shooting, to finalising the sale.  I will demonstrate my biggest selling images and show you how to process those images as well.  It will be a jam packed class full of learning.

Photography for me is not only to catch the moments lived with children is also a record of my own emotions, sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker. My work are simple, quiet and there is a little bit magic in many of them. I want to show there is a magic in ordinary lives and the best things are the simplest ones. "
