My Story is Art – An Artist’s Book

If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know my big news.  For the last year or so I’ve been writing a book pitch and soon after I finally got up the courage to submit it to publishers, I had a contract!  It’s long been my dream to author a book.  I decided that yes, I wanted to be an author and yes the experience is something I consider to be bucket-list- worthy, but no I don’t intend to simply show pretty photos.  Friends #kristysbook (as my intstagram hashtag boasts) will be a book to make you think, one that will carry your ideas beyond Pinterest to a place where real visioning happens.

{So you might be thinking….What would a book from an artist-stationer-stylist look like?}

Well,, let me explain…Over the last 6 years I’ve traveled to some of the most iconic places in this country and world, leading teams of photographers and artists alike in creating editorial worthy productions.  You get the drift, I’ve styled imaginary scenes of wedding delight crafted to get your creative juices flowing and make their appearance on/in some of the best know blogs and print magazines.

So with my manuscript due in December I have my work cut out for me and the teams of like-minded artists who’ve agreed to travel the distances.  So far we’re scheduled to be near Yellowstone National Park, Normandy, France and the plans for a Philadelphia location are in the works!  To get a peek at the fourth shooting location we’re hoping for, follow me on instagram, starting this Thursday!

{Some of my favorite editorials are below, staged everywhere from locations in my back yard to the Amalfi Coast in Italy!}

Just the smallest peek at some things in the works for the book!


We’ll be shooting for two days in Normandy, France and surrounding areas, inclduing a special spot I haven’t seen since I was in High School!
These photos don’t need much narration, right? Looking forward to some glamping!
