Welcome, I'm so glad you stopped by! 

Hi! My name is Kristi Gayton. I am a newborn and maternity portrait photographer in the Reno area. I have a home studio in Sparks, Nevada and also offer in home lifestyle sessions. I serve expecting parents, new parents, and parents that have already "been there, done that" by providing an outstanding portrait experience and capturing images that will stand the test of time. Safety is my number one priority during a session. I am a proud member of APNPI and continually take classes and attend workshops to provide the best possible experience for my families. My style is timeless and organic with a touch of vintage flair. To see a video of me working in my studio and hear a little bit more about me click on the “behind the scenes” video tab below. In addition to my passion for newborn photography I also love the Northern Nevada community and have a heart for community service. I am proud to partner with the Ronald McDonald house in town to provide families that have had infants in the NICU with complimentary newborn sessions.

I was an Elementary School teacher for over 8 years before I decided to start my business. It was after my Grandma passed away that I decided to go all in and pursue photography professionally. I was reminded of how little time we are given on Earth and wanted to take my best shot at living my dream! When I am not cuddling babies I enjoy camping, reading, antique shopping, and channeling my inner Joanna Gaines.

Outside of having the best job every I am also blessed to be a wife and momma! My husband, Tyler believed in me from the very beginning! If I was all in so was he and I love him so much for that! We have two beautiful children together. Our son Declan is seven. He is attentive, curious, determined, and affectionate. Our daughter Esme is five. She is spirited, imaginative, and fearless. We also have a spoiled 10 year old yellow lab name Charlie and our newest fur pup Oliver named after my Grandpa's favorite tractor.
