Kirsten is a documentary family photographer based in Denver, Colorado. However her work takes her all over the world, from New Zealand to Dubai, Brazil to Canada, Italy to Hawaii. Although she has been shooting for more than 20 years, it was teaching on Creative Live that really brought her approach to documentary family photography to the forefront as a desirable alternative to the traditional family portrait.
Currently, she divides her time between mentoring, private commissioned shoots, commercial work and personal projects. Despite the many accomplishments including being regularly featured on the Huffington Post, it is her role as a mother and wife to her daughter Byrdie Mae and husband street photographer Gregory Bethmann that brings her the most pride and joy. Well that and any Scrabble victory, which are countless.
