I love photographing Senior Portraits, it's such an exciting time of life; everything is right at your fingertips and you are ready to embark on your journey of life! All of those wonderful feelings shine through in the portraits and it's such an exciting energy to be around. It also helps that Megan is stunning and her and her Mom are sweet as pie! You gals were a delight to spend time with while we tromped around edgartown taking photos. Thank you!

The Doherty Family...

It was so nice to see these guys again and meet their youngest cutie pie! I photographed these two love birds on their wedding day and then again for their first family portrait when their first born was about 5 months old, it was great to see them as a fun family of four! We had a blast on Lambert's Cove Beach! Thank you guys for a great morning, and I hope to see you all again soon!!!

This family of three going on four is the cutest!I absolutely love photographing around the Edgartown Lighthouse and chasing around this little beauty was a pleasure! We had fun running all around the beach dunes and lighthouse itself! Thanks for a great morning on the beach you three! Hopefully I can meet number 2 next year!

The Boys are here!!!

These two dashing young men were quite a riot to photograph, we got to sneak away from the grownups and have some fun on the docks and Jetty out in Menemsha. Brothers and best buds; it was a pleasure to work with you both! Hope to see you again next year!!!

xoxoxo ♥ Kristen


The O'Brien Clan is back again!

I love this Family! Emily & Tom were one of my favorite Bride and Grooms and it's no surprise that their family is now one of my favorite portrait shoots all year! Your two Girls are absoultely adorable and it's so fun to watch them grow up and into their amazing and sweet personalities. You guys rocked the photo shoot as usual! I can't wait until next year! If you'd like to see the O'brien's past family portraits you can check them out here: 1, 2



GABE!!!! Is back!

He's back on the Island and he had company too! I'm sure you remember Gabe, we have literally watched him grow up over these past 5 years. I've been photographing Gabe's portrait since he was only 3 (almost 4) and Kristen Leigh Conklin Photography was only 2! It's just amazing to watch Gabe grow, from the adorable little tike to this handsome and quite dapper young fellow in his suit, of course he's still a major goof ball and just had to jump off the dock in his clothes! Sigh.  But that's what I love about him, he's a comedian, it's what makes me so excited every year to photograph his portrait. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful friend and loyal client in Gabe's Mom Wendy! You can check out all of Gabe's past portrait shoots, and watch him grow, here:  1 2 3 4 ! Thanks for Being as awesome as ever Gabe, Wendy and Family!!!

Can't wait for next year!!! xoxoxo ♥ Kristen


The Wolff Family...

You might recognize this adorable bunch from their family portrait last year, they are still wicked cute and the boys are getting so big! It was so good to see all of you, thank you again for a great morning of photos on the beach!





Edgartown Love!!!

These two love birds eloped quietly on Light house beach with their adorable 2 year old in tow. It was a beautiful night for a beautiful couple! I never once had to tell them to pose, just put them in a spot and started shooting, the love was just pouring out of them! Congratulations you two!

Courtney + Pat

These two love birds are getting hitched this Fall on the Vineyard! I am so excited for their big day! I was lucky enough to photograph Courtney's Sister, Lindsay's, Wedding, and now I have the honor of photographing Courtneys wedding! God I love my job! Just check out this love match; their wedding is going to be amazing! 

Can't waut for the Big Day!!!! xoxoxoxo ♥ Kristen


Summer Baby Love!

This young family couldn't be cuter! This little bella is such a character, she had so many expressions and what a smarty pants; she didn't take her eyes off the camera! I was lucky enough to meet these two love birds at a family wedding a few years ago, it's so nice to see the family grow and get to meet the newest edition! I can't wait for the next family member to come along ;).
