Meet Kristia

As a fashion and portrait photographer, based in Daytona Beach, Florida, Kristia Knowles will take your vision to a new level with fresh ideas and incomparable creativity. With her impeccably styled fashion photo shoots, Kristia specializes in creating portraits for model comp cards, actor's headshots, business branding, boudoir photography, senior portraits and more.

Here's what she has to say about her passion for portrait photography:

"I see your beauty, charm, and unique traits with an artist's creative eye. I enjoy capturing a fleeting expression or exchange; that very second - in a gorgeous photograph to last a lifetime.

Ever since I can remember, I have been mesmerized by faces, especially eyes. My intention in every professional photo shoot I style, direct and photograph, is to frame feelings and present a sense of one’s soul in the images I produce. My goal is to make you feel and look the best you ever have.

Photography is truly a gift given to me by God, and I cherish it greatly. The joy I experience from the delight my clients express in their wedding photographs, family portraits, and modeling portfolios is new and a thrill every time.

With a career in modeling and acting for over 20 years, I’ve been on both sides of the camera. This rare advantage enables me to know a perspective uncommon to most photographers, and guide in a manner that instills confidence and puts people at ease.

Those closest to me know that I am forever a student - always thirsty for learning and new ideas. So to enhance my skills as a professional photographer, I studied photography at the Southeastern School of Photography. This training was integral in expanding my knowledge of equipment and lighting technique.

I love creative freedom and the ability to change at a moments notice. The same is true of my photography. I cannot define my style because it is constantly evolving and growing. Rather, I let my photographs tell the story.

I hope to see you in front of my lens soon!"
