Kirsten Lewis is a family photojournalist based in Denver, Colorado however her work brings her all over the world, from New Zealand to Dubai, Brazil to Canada, Italy to Hawaii. Although she has been shooting and teaching for over a decade, it was her 3 day and 2 day classes on Creative Live that really brought her approach to documentary family photography to the forefront as a desirable alternative to the traditional family portrait. Her Day In The Life sessions are completely raw, 24hrs of coverage of a single family usually producing incredibly funny and touching images depicting real life as a kid as well as a parent. She has been mentoring photographers internationally not only within her genre of photography, but a coach guiding them to find their own unique voice by embracing their personal experiences and letting them reflect that history through their photographs. Kirsten's talks are known to make you laugh one minute and tear up the next, inspiring her listeners to go out and make new work to be proud of. She is most excited for the biggest job she began undertaking in April,as Mom to her first child, daughter Byrdie Mae with her husband Greg.
