Kristi Calderon



Hi, my name is Kristi. I am a photographer based out of New Westminster, BC. I began photographing my younger sister when I was 14 and my love for photography grew into a passion. I would dress her up as a fairy or a princess and we would spend hours in the woods creating photos.

When I was 18, I got my first paid photography job and the learning curve was steep! One cold Thanksgiving weekend, I went on a date.. with a very inspiring man named Josh; I didn’t know it at the time, but as my future husband and I walked around my hometown and talked about our goals and dreams, he convinced me to go full time in my business and follow my passion. I gave my notice at my healthcare job and took the plunge!

As I’ve grown in my photography I’ve fallen in love with the process of creating connections with people, hearing their stories of growth, and capturing their individuality through a single image. I feel the most inspired while working with creative entrepreneurs who are starting their own businesses and need images that share a part of their unique personality, reflects their brand, what they are passionate about, and the spaces they create in.

If you are in need of a creative portrait that encapsulates your personal story, get in touch with me! And let’s begin the process of creating your unique portrait.

Artist Statement

As a young teen, I would spend hours in the forest outside my family home exploring and documenting everything that caught my eye. I remember staring at a water droplet about to fall from a leaf and being so thankful for how photography had changed the way I saw the world. It made me stop and look. It made ordinary life seem extraordinary.

The work I do today explores the attitude individuals have towards the day to day life. I have set out to encourage positive thinking, calm the anxieties of life, and celebrate all life. I am taking the study of colours, nature, shapes, and the feelings they evoke to express my creative voice in the form of photography.
