My name is Kristen Self, mommy of three and wife to Chris "Honey" Self. I used to think I was defined by where I worked, what I wore, and who I was friends with. Now I know nothing is more rewarding then staying home with my kids, lovin my honey, working on my photography, and following the word of my savior. I hope you will follow the exciting, blessed and sometimes sad events that come though this world around me. Enjoy all of the photos provided by myself. Look forward to reading all of your feedback as well.
My dedicated husband, soul mate, and father to our babies. Met in 1989,married since 2003, our happiness is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Honey is the most virtuous man on Earth, he has developed patience and a terrific work ethic. I know this love of ours will continue to grow and blossom until we are brought before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Our 1st born baby is the life of the party, he excels in every sport he plays, LOVES the 2nd grade and may be a little bit of a Mama’s boy. Can you blame the kid, he has been joined at my hip since August of '00.
Olivia is the princess and the only baby girl in the house. When the ball gown comes off she loves sports, dancing and this lil lady can throw a tea party like no other. We were blessed with her big baby blues in March of '05.
The baby of the family, he is so sweet, a dancer, and singer. We are loving all of the new words he is learning and watching him explore everything. Liam completed our family in October 2007.

Excited and super busy getting everything together for my first photography workshop for beginners right here in sunny Gilbert, Arizona. I am keeping it small for my first workshop, maybe around 8 students max. It looks like I already have 7 that have paid, I have room for one or two more. If you would like more info please visit my website, there is a section titled photography workshop.
Delivery room births or home deliveries? Seems like so many moms are now choosing a more natural way with a midwife, doula, and a birthing tub. I do love attending a birth where a doula or a midwife is present, it really sets a different mood.
Here are some images I captured from one of my favorite hospitals in Gilbert, Mercy Gilbert.
After the new year I made the decision to solely photo maternity, delivery room/ labor & delivery, and newborns. I could be happier for the time it has freed up for my family. I realized soon after starting Kristen Self Photography my love for newborns. I simply can't get enough of them!
It has been so busy, now that the holidays are over and my business is only focusing on new little bundles of joy I will have more time to update my blog. I am so missed it along with stalking all of the others out there in blogland.
Here are a few photos to show you what I have been up to....I can't complain, look who I am spending time with!
