Kristin is a wife and mom of two beautiful girls, one baby boy, and a crazy little dog. After receiving her masters in social work, Kristin spent the first years of her professional life working with children and families as a school counselor. Once becoming a mom, Kristin struggled with finding a photographer for her daughter that provided the experience she was looking for. There was a true void in Monmouth County for a photographer that had timeless props, a patient and warm personality, and a meticulous eye for design. Rather than expanding her search outside of the area, Kristin Baker Photography + Design was born.
Kristin sought out the best in the business and traveled around the country to learn her craft. Working under the world-renowned photographer, Ana Brandt, Kristin learned the importance of newborn safety and posing. Kristin then honed her craft learning from other trailblazers in the industry including Charlotte Gamache, Amy McDaniel of Dewdrops Photography, Jessica Guzman of Jessica G. Photography, and Theresa and Erin Rouse of Hello Little Studios. In the first three years of business, Kristin has photographed over 250 newborns. Her work has been recognized in several publications and by photographers around the world. With an eye for design and a love for all things timeless, organic, contemporary, and beautiful, Kristin has handpicked the highest quality props, wraps, and backdrops from around the world to highlight the precious details of your little one!
Voted Most Loved Monmouth County Photographer in 2019 and 2020, Kristin is a registered and insured business serving the Jersey Shore and greater Monmouth County. Kristin's studio is located right outside of Wall Township, NJ.
