Durham Family Photographer & Maternity Photographer | Kristen Borelli Photography

smooth. seamless. enjoyable.

Besides the obvious of creating gorgeous images of you, I'm here to make a task in your life flawless. From start to finish your photography experience will be smooth, seamless and enjoyable. My years of knowledge has allowed me to put in place a system that takes away all the guesswork, letting you know you are in good hands.

the process

  • Once you have filled out an inquiry form you can expect to hear back from me within 48 hours. I will provide you with all the information you need to solidify why you came my way in the first place.
  • My booking calendar will be sent your way which makes it easy to secure a date and time for your photo session. At this time a signed contract and retainer are required.
  • From the moment you book to your session date, I will be guiding you through everything you'll want to know (even answer questions you didn't even know you had!). You'll also fill out a questionnaire that will help me better understand your vision. I'll suggest a location(s) based on the vibes your putting out.
  • Now this is where it gets fun; STYLING. Weeks before your shoot, we will work together at perfecting your look. You'll get full access to my beautifully curated client closet that is loaded with dresses, skirts, tops, jewellery and hats. To make it easier on you, I offer a styling service that helps you dress every member who will be joining us for the session.
  • I'll be sure to look at the upcoming weather forecast (1 or 2 days prior to your photo session) and if it looks miserable, I am always happy to reschedule.
  • There's nothing for you to worry about on the day of your photo shoot besides showing up on time and having fun. I will give my professional opinion on all aspects and be sure to guide you into poses and prompts that best reflect who you are.
  • A teaser photo will be shown to you within 48 hours and your full gallery completed within 3-4 weeks of our time together.
  • From here you will have the option to invest in high quality prints and products through my online store.

I'll hold your hand for every step of the way. Having your trust is not something I take for granted. It's valuable to me and it's what helps us create magic together.


  • All the help/support/information you require leading up to your shoot.
  • Access to my insanely amazing client closet.
  • Personalized styling for each member attending the session.
  • Customized location suggestions.
  • Your shoot (time dependant on the package you've chosen).
  • An online gallery with your artistically edited images (image number dependant on the package you've chosen).
It's the most magnificent thing everrrrr that my past clients rave about (I'm not lying... see yourself by checking out these reviews). I've spent all of my husband's savings (ahahaha) on pieces that photograph like a dream. The items have been chosen based on textures, sizing, movement and colour. Most pieces fit a wide range of sizes (with the help of elastic waists, ties and adjustable straps). I also offer intricate jewellery and stylish hats to add a little extra pizazz and personality.
If the weather is predicted to be too wet or cold, I am happy to find another date that works! I like to look at the hourly forecast and make our decision based off of that (since we all know how quickly the weather can shift!).
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind

To add, it's an investment you'll never regret. You'll look back on these photos for years and years and then pass them down to your children who will continue to appreciate them. There's no other product that you'll purchase in your lifetime that you'll value more than this one. I promise.
