Welcome, I'm so glad you stopped by! 

My name is Kristi Gayton. I am a newborn and maternity portrait photographer in the Reno area. I work out of my home studio and 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. Parents often refer to me as the “baby whisperer” and quickly follow that up by asking me to stop by their home around 2am so they can catch some zzzzz’s (all kidding aside I absolutely LOVE my job and it means the world to me that parent’s trust me to capture the fleeting newborn phase).

Safety is my number one priority during a session. I am accredited with APNPI and I 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.

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 of the Ronald McDonald house in town to provide families that have had infants in the NICU with complimentary newborn sessions. 

Outside of having the best job every I am also blessed to be a fire wife and momma of two! 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 2 year old terrier mix named Oliver. 

The things I am most passionate about in life are preserving memories, brunch, browsing through antique shops, organizing, channeling my inner Joanna Gaines, camping with my family, reading, and just trying to make my little corner of the world a little bit brighter.
