Copyright 2017 Aurora Dawn Photography | Springfield, Missouri Portrait + Wedding Photographer

I’m Kristin, Lady Boss, adventurer, cool mom, and photographer behind Aurora Dawn Photography. I specialize in all things love for free-spirited and creative individuals and I love making life-long memories and magical moments through the images that I create. It drives me, motivates me, and gives me a reason to smile every day.


When I was ten years old, I wanted to be a ballerina, dancing her way through life. Now instead of dancing, you can find me traveling the world and exploring new ways to be inspired. While I love jet-setting, I am based out of Springfield, MO and it’s where I call my home and where I raise the light of my life, Nola. Speaking of inspiration, she’s my number one and the shiniest star in my nighttime sky.


This amazing (seriously, in every way) relationship that I have with my family is what makes my job capturing other families the absolute easiest. I’ll tickle toes and bellies like no other photographer I know. I want the emotion and expression to be the first thing that’s noticed. I don’t pose, I capture real memories; real moments. I pride myself on getting to know my clients and inviting them in as family and as friends. That way, I can tell their story as I would tell my own, with an abundance of heart and magic.


I truly believe in what I do and I believe that every day is filled with its own art. It’s beautiful and meant to be remembered. No detail is too small, no day too short.  



I want to be the photographer for your family and to create that “magic” for you. From the day we create your images to the day that we place them on your walls. Whether it’s your wedding, family, newborn homecoming or your daughters’ fifth birthday, I want to be there for you to capture these irreplaceable minutes.



Let’s do it, let’s start a journey together. Message me today to begin a conversation that will end with a lifetime of memories of the best times of your life.
