Art & Life with Kersten Carrington

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kersten Carrington.

Kersten, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I’ve always been the girl with a camera in her hand but when my daughter was born in 2011, my love and passion for photography really took flight. I wanted to learn everything I could about photography so that I could learn how to best capture my daughter’s milestones. Fast forward seven years to now and I am so unbelievably grateful that I found my calling and can truly say that I love what I do!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’m a portrait photographer that freezes your moments and memories in time so that your family can cherish them for years to come. I love LOVE. Whether it’s photographing families, new babies, children, or special events such as intimate weddings, I am there to capture the love. I want my clients to walk away from our session together with smiles on their faces, excited to see the finished art that will fill their homes.

Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
I think the hardest thing about being a photographer in this day and age is that our society has become so obsessed with digital images that many people never actually print their memories. As a photographer, I love the moments when my clients receive their printed artwork and can’t wait to display it in their homes. As a child, I can remember days when my mom and I would get out boxes and boxes of old photos and she would share her memories with me. In a world that revolves around social media, our children and grandchildren won’t have printed memories to look back on. I think cities and communities can help by having art fairs and contests where people can submit their printed photos to be viewed by the public. Restaurants, stores, and really anywhere where people might spend a good deal of time can help by allowing local artists to display their artwork in the stores. It not only helps the artists, but helps the restaurants/stores/other locations be more aesthetically appealing.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
The best place to view my work is on Instagram (@kerstencphotography) but I’m also on Facebook as Kersten Carrington Photography and have a private female-only boudoir Facebook group called Boudoir by Kersten Carrington. Any kind of engagement on social media is the best way to show your support! On Instagram, likes, comments, and follows are the best way to show your support! When it comes to Facebook, sharing posts and photos helps us get the most attention. Any and all forms of support are always appreciated! I love to get feedback from clients and fans!
