Welcome to Fiege Photography and thanks for stopping by my site! My name is Kristine Fiege and here is my story on how I fell back in love with photography many years later.
My passion for photography came early right when I graduated high school and was accepted into college. Like most high school grads, I really had no idea what I wanted to study or become in life. So I decided to get a full time job. My first 'real' job was a photography job working at a studio for 5 years. I loved it, from the people I worked with, to the customers and connecting with the children. It wasn’t long before people started to request me as their photographer!!! About 1 year into working there I was nominated as photographer of the year (it was a huge recognition for me seeing that there were 600+ studios) I did not win but it was a step into the direction that would take me to where I am now. I decided about 5 years after I had worked there that I wanted to get more into a corporate field and left working at the studio and started a new path.
Fast forward to where I am now. I have two adorable children Tyler (Age 4) and Easton (AKA the “Beast” age 2) and I found my passion again leading me back into the field of photography. After my older son Tyler turned one I bought myself a camera to capture their youth. I taught myself everything on that new camera and posted my pictures on online. Friends and family loved my picture and the requests took off. I had people writing to me to see if I would take photos of their families! I was giddy and happy that people still liked my work!
Wanting to learn more and take my business to the next level, I decided to take workshops and classes to learn more about my camera. I attended the SCP workshop back in 2013 which enhanced my newborn photography skills. From their I started taking request, mostly with newborns. I really love photographing these babies and creating timeless art. Newborns and kids are only small once and these moments go by too fast. I started to get very busy and decided that I needed space for a studio. In early 2014 my dream came true! We have a full, functional studio in Elma full of props, space and everything required to make your pictures timeless and beautiful. I can’t believe how far I have come in such a short time and I can’t wait to see where this path will take me.
