Welcome to KNL Photography
I’m Kirsten the creative soul behind all this madness. I can’t wait to learn more about you but first here’s so more information about me.
Here’s (almost) everything you need to know about me.
I’ve pursued many passions as a career including carpentry, personal training, graphic design, engineering, and the list grows longer. Amidst all these fleeting interests, two things have always remained a constant. My desire to create and an unconditional love of animals; especially horses. Some other things about me:
- Trick riding and Vaulting are two of the disciplines I’ve competed in and performed
- I currently ride Dressage and I’m loving it
- I was in Equestrian 4-H for about ten years in two states
- I’m in love with my best friend who happens to be a kick-a$$ bodybuilder
- My brindle tiger dog, Kona, goes everywhere with me
- I love reading! Check out my insta-story to see my current favorites
- I have a girly side but I’m most comfortable in leggings, muck boots and a t-shirt
- My favorite bands include AWOLNATION, Bastille, Alt-J and Twenty One Pilots
- I have a serious addiction to popcorn

My portfolio is a compilation of images that my previous clients now enjoy on the walls of their home.
I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as they do.
Before the Session
You have a lot of things to plan before your session and I promise to help you with it. If you live in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus or Union county I will treat you to your choice of coffee, ice cream or a good ol’ donut. If you live outside of these counties no sweat, we will meet through Skype or Facetime to make preparations for your session. During our meeting, we will talk about what to expect during your session, what date works best for you and any other questions you may have. You will also receive a “what to wear” guide for yourself and a grooming guide for your horse.
The day of your session
The day of your session is all about you! I will get to your barn early to find places with the best lighting and backdrop then when you and your horse are ready I will take you through a series of guided poses and movements. A lifetime of horse experience and our pre-session meeting allow for the best results possible. After we are done shooting expect hugs and a social media preview photo within 48 hours of your shoot!
Get excited because this part is my favorite. I love seeing the looks on all of your faces when you see the results from out shoot. At our pre-session meeting, we will schedule your in-person reveal date during which you will have the opportunity to see all the carefully edited pieces of art from our shoot and order any digitals or prints.
After you’ve seen your images I will write a blog post about our time together and a few highlight shot. I will also send your order to my professional printing lab, It will take 2-3 weeks to recieve and ship your order.
