Hello. I’m Kris.
I’d love to say that I’ve been photographing since birth. (I can’t.) However, I am waving at the camera in the first picture ever taken of me. Even at a day old it seems I could tell the camera was going to be my friend.
I got my first camera for my 8th birthday. I was in love. Soon I was making all kinds of discoveries like if you put the thing you’re trying to photograph in the middle of the square you look through the thing shows up in the middle of the picture. That was pretty cool.
Since then, I’ve photographed everything great and small. (Sometimes, I even center those things.) I learned how to show how I see the world through the lens. I committed to my first love by going to Minneapolis College of Art + Design for further study. We were bound for life.
I did get my Bachelor of Fine Arts from MCAD in media & design. As an artist, I love the awkward and the real. I love the moments where things come together to make something truly unexpected. I love the way that shapes move through my canvas. It also turns out that I see beauty in everything. That’s also pretty cool. My work has been featured many publications and websites including, Selleck Waterfall Sandwich (seafood sandwich.)
I capture all of those things and bring that to photographing your family.
Well, Lee is my middle name and something my little sister loves to taunt me with. (She chooses to call me Krissy Lee though, which I pretty much totally hate.) When I decided to start this business I knew that I needed to name it something that reminded me of what it’s like to be a kid. Enter in the annoying habits of siblings. It’s just like going home.
The splat, as it’s called by programmers, is a wild card. It’s used in searches to get any and all responses.
In English, an asterisk is usually five-pointed in sans-serif typefaces, six-pointed in serif typefaces, and six- or eight-pointed when handwritten. Pretty random.
The asterisk is derived from the need of the printers of family trees in feudal times for a symbol to indicate date of birth. The original shape was seven-armed, each arm like a teardrop shooting from the center. … Many cultures have their own unique versions of the asterisk.
Yes, this makes me a super dork. I love everything about the asterisk from it being a wild card to the it changing from circumstance to circumstance. It very much describes me. I think it’s beautiful.
