"Life is like a camera - Focus on what's important and you will capture it perfectly."
Born in Denmark, Kristine Boel has traveled the world, living in Brazil, Costa Rica, Spain, New York before ultimately settling in Los Angeles, where she currently resides in Culver City with her husband and 2 daughters.
Kristine got her first film camera when turning only 14 years old, But it wasn't until much later in life she really understood the possibilities of capturing through that lens. In 2012, working as fashion assistant at V.s. Magazine, she became super inspired by the photographer Guy Aroch, even though t wasn't until she became a mom in 2014, she was encouraged by her fellow mom friends to pursue her interest in photography. While shooting her way through playdates and family vacations she refined her personal style and embraced new and experimental photography techniques .
While the people she’s met and places she’s been have inspired her style enormously. t’s also her Scandinavian heritage that plays a huge influence in her work.
In Kristine's native Denmark, weeks of endless sunlight are followed by long, dark winters where every ray of natural light is treasured. She is fascinated with how the light sets the tone of her mood and uses the dramatic lighting schemes to create emotion in her photos. She always seeks the light, but hunts the shadows.
Kristine’s style is relaxed, yet dreamy. She lets her focus serve as the main inspiration. Whether she is shooting playful, cheeky, shy or thoughtful children, camera conscious families or expectant mothers, Kristine prefers to be the observer, and meet the subject in the moment.
