HELLO

Hi there and thanks for stopping by my page! My name is Kristin and I’m the owner of Kristin Erin Leigh Photography. Here’s a little bit about how I became the photographer I am today. When my oldest daughter was born I knew that I needed to capture every moment as she grew up. A month later with my first camera in my hand I was ready to take on the world! Shortly after opening my business I received the heartbreaking news that I had breast cancer. I wasn’t sure what life had in store for me but I knew that I couldn’t give up for me, my family or my two beautiful girls. Today I am cancer free and finally able to build the business I planned years ago. When I was a young girl my favourite things to do were singing, drawing and acting! Now capturing those once in a lifetime shots has become my true passion in life. I LOVE to do a little bit of everything so I offer a wide range of packages. Always growing and always trying new and interesting things to draw people in. Not everything I do is for everyone but I hope you’ll still stick around and see what I can come up with next…

Family is everything to me. I really don’t know what I’d do without them. I come from a broken family like many out there. Things weren’t always easy but the love was always there. We also have a rare cancer gene (Li-Fraumeni Syndrome) in our family and my sister is currently fighting for her life because of stage four brain cancer and my youngest also has the gene… We’re all still praying for a miracle for her. Because of these hard times we have become even closer and encouraged each other through both our cancer journeys. Over the years I’ve found myself digging deep into my emotions to help me cope with life by writing a song or playing the piano. I can’t read music but that never stopped me from trying anyways! Something I’d really like to get back to! I LOVE tattoos, like obsessed! I have a ton which may surprise you, but that’s just another way artists like myself express their creative side. I am also a firm believer that leggings are indeed pants. If you ever catch me wearing anything other than black leggings then it probably wasn’t actually me you saw. LOL! We are HUGE Star Wars fans in this house and have many lightsaber battles that sometimes end in tears.  I have two fun loving girls that definitely keep me on my toes and a husband that shares a lot of the same interests as me. I’d say we are both kinda geeky but he is worse! I mean he does work in IT…IT Crowd anyone?! Matt and I met at a Stag & Doe for mutual friends of ours which I literally wasn’t planning to go to. It was my first one ever as I don’t like big crowds due to severe anxiety. We met and talked and really connected and that was it, I was hooked line and sinker. Eight years later with two girls and two adopted cats just living our best life…
