It is hard to measure the success of a year. The financial analyst in me wants to look at the revenue goals that I beat, the profit margins I improved, the number of sessions that I booked, or the average sale that I raised. But 2016 was about a lot more than numbers. In 2016, […]
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Kirstie Marie Photography! “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Can you still be a horsewoman without a horse? Miranda Lambert penned a song about the house that built her. The lyrics portray her revisiting her childhood home to collect old memories – hoping that by touching the place she grew up, and reliving milestones in her life, she could stitch the pieces together to find herself. This […]
Tahoe sent me off to college with a “world champion” belt buckle and an athletic scholarship. The climax to a four-year goal was an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. Followed by an overwhelming sense of “what do I do now?“ What do I work towards? Who do I want to become? What do I want to […]
When I asked him to lope off, he bucked instead. Tahoe hadn’t been ridden in two years when my parents drove me three hours to Bend, Oregon to try him out. He also wouldn’t load into a trailer since his last ride ended in stitches. Miranda Lambert penned a song about the house that built […]
I’d never seen a prettier horse. I had to have him. He had to be mine. Miranda Lambert penned a song about the house that built her. The lyrics portray her revisiting her childhood home to collect old memories – hoping that by touching the place she grew up, and reliving milestones in her life, she […]
A feisty bay pony with a potbelly taught me everything I know about people, and almost everything I know about myself. Miranda Lambert penned a song about the house that built her. The lyrics portray her revisiting her childhood home to collect old memories – hoping that by touching the place she grew up, and reliving […]

Miranda Lambert penned a song about the house that built her. The lyrics portray her revisiting her childhood home to collect old memories – hoping that by touching the place she grew up, and reliving milestones in her life she could stitch the pieces together to find herself. For as long as I can remember I have been […]
Camera in tow, I got to visit one of my favorite rodeos with my family this year. Nestled in the tiny town of St Paul, Oregon, the St Paul Rodeo is one of the major stops of “Cowboy Christmas” — also known as Fourth of July weekend.
As I assemble my favorite images over the last year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I can’t thank my clients, friends, industry peers, and sweet husband enough for all of the love and support they have shown me over this last year. Over the next several weeks, I will share my favorite images, most popular […]

20 Questions with Kirstie Marie Photography 1. Where do you call home? I grew up just south of Portland, Oregon, so a part of me will always consider that “home”. But let’s face it… I belong in Texas. Right now I call Dallas, Texas home with my husband and my puppy named Dion. 2. […]
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow gone, how much more will he clothe you” – Luke 12: […]
Miss Taylor deserves two blog posts. If you missed part one, be sure to keep scrolling. I jumped the gun on this one and posted the digital photographs I took before I even got the film rolls back from PhotoVision. But I kind of like the opportunity to sift out the film images and showcase […]

Here goes the very first blog post, and I decided to make it personal: very personal! A very special boy named Jake came into my life during my freshman year of high school: We became friends with mutual classes together, but soon we started hanging out more and by the time freshman year ended we […]
