We capture the moments that actually matter

So you and your family can remember them forever.

Hey there, Im Kristi!

I’d like to say that I am both a lover and a fighter. I love my life and I fight fiercely for my spouse, my family and my friends. I love the Lord, and I choose to not stand idle when I see injustice, prejudice, racism or judgement. I believe that love is a human experience and expression that everyone has the right to have, no matter what.

My family loves to travel, because we love the simplicity of being outdoors and the connection it brings us. Check our travel schedule to see where we will be next!

In my work, I strive to create an emotional connection for my clients. I want my images to make you feel something, instead of just creating a beautiful photo for your instagram. I want you to have the opportunity to travel back in time when you look through your gallery or album. I want you to be able to relive the magic and feel the moment all over again, as if it’s happening for the first time.

“Hey all! It’s me, Sheila, and here’s the run down on me!

I’m married to my absolute best friend, Josh, and we have a beautiful little girl, Lyla, a husky named Kenai (aka bubba/bubbles/fluffy fluff) and horse thats almost the size of a house, Big Guy. I love being outdoors, exploring, every animal that has ever existed and just soaking in the simple moments. I’m definitely a morning person and movies after 6pm are basically a no go. I’ll crash so hard!

2018 Took us on a 1500 mile (one way) road trip to the west coast and we are planning another in September of 2019, which is only going to be better!

I wish I can rate higher than 5 stars! Kristi made our wedding a total daydream come to life. I couldn’t be happier with the pictures that we’ll have for life. I’ve never worked with a professional photographer before and she made me feel totally comfortable during my bridal portraits, like I was taking pictures with a friend. She made me feel beautiful. I still hear comments from my bridal party about how great she was, and I see people go wide-eyed when I show them photos of our big day. She is a true professional and very flexible. I was sitting in the makeup chair at the salon when the location for the bridal portraits fell through and she took care of everything. She found a place that was more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. When I told her my ‘must’ photo on the wedding day was in a canoe at the venue, she responded with “no problem, I’ll make sure to wear shorts so I can get in the water.” She was very organized and stepped in when our timeline wasn’t going as planned. If you are looking for a true artist, you won’t go wrong with Kristi at The Dogwood Collective.

We have already had two shoots with her- the most recent was an “after the wedding” shoot to do some more styled photos than what we got on our actual wedding day. We met at Devil’s Den (yes, in my wedding dress) and took off hiking. The photos were BEAUTIFUL & we had so much fun!

“Kristi’s moody and romantic style matched us perfectly! She was accommodating to our idea of engagement/ family photo combo shoot. She helped us get the best angles and very cool shots. She even had the idea to shoot in front of the place we met which will always be a special photo for us! Not to mention, she was excellent with my 4 year old daughter, making her giggle and laugh to get that great photo. She has a God given eye you won’t believe!”

?Kristi is an absolute DREAM to work with! Not only did she travel from Arkansas to Colorado for us, she went above and beyond to make our day seamless and carefree as possible. She was so adventurous and knew exactly the look we were going for! As if the trip itself weren’t exhausting enough, I received my pictures AND video after only a few DAYS!!! They were better than I could have imagined and I would recommend her over and over again! ?
