My name is Kristina Hubschmitt and I live in Jupiter, Florida. I have lived in Jupiter (Jupiter Farms even!) most of my life. I attended University of Central Florida where I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology, however, from the time I was a little girl I was always fascinated with photography. I was blessed with having an amaed me to continue on with my passion in photography.
I am now a mother of two and I understand how important it is to capture these moments before the memory slips away. I lost my father in 2010 and the pictures that I have of him are now priceless. The picture of my daughters tiny hand wrapped around my pinky finger seems almost surreal now that she is no longer a baby…and the picture of my grandfather with his childish grin, captured less than a month before he passed, is now forever captured for my children to remember. This is my draw to photography, this is my artwork, and I am so delighted to share it with you.

I do my newborn photography inside my house in Jupiter Farms, Florida. I have a large room (well, large enough – one can always wish for more space!) with great natural light. I also use strobes when needed. I have a variety of backdrops and props available for use during your session. I shoot with all professional equipment including Canon 5D Mark III’s and several L glass lenses. My favorite lens to shoot with is my 85mm 1.2.
I do the majority of my child and family photography at my 'outdoor' studio which is located either on my property or in a barn on approximately 2 1/2 acres out here in Jupiter Farms. The property is beautiful and it also houses my large variety of props ranging from vintage carriages and cribs to an assortment of vintage toys. I am also available to shoot locally at Parks and the Beach although I do tend to shy away from doing in home shoots and events but I will make exceptions to this rule depending on my availability.
I am determined to capture your life, and that involves letting your children show all of their unique personalities. I try not to set time limits on sessions (my listed times (other than minis) are the norm – but I will give you as much time as I have available!) I completely understand that children need breaks during their session! Whether it is playing breaks, snack breaks, cuddle breaks, and potty breaks! I hope that you can think of our session as one big break from your day to day life to capture a moment that will last forever!
Please take a moment to look at my work and give me the chance to capture a memory for you. Please know that I pray before every photography session and put my heart into my work. I look forward to working with you and your family to give you that priceless picture that will always warm your heart.

Some general information on me.
I am a mom of 2 children. Therefore, I am available for pictures when my husband is available to watch the girls. This is usually Saturday, Sunday, and the occasional Friday. However, I am available for all newborn sessions in my home studio Monday - Friday from 9am- 1:45pm.
Where is your studio?
My newborn studio is my house. I have a great photography room with lots of natural light but I also have hot lights available when needed I also have plenty of props and closets full of boutique girls clothing from ages newborn to 14 years!
I also have an 'outdoor' studio located in my backyard or in a barn on my parents property. This barn is loaded with props and is located on 2 1/2 acres of beautifully landscaped property.
I also love outdoor shoots out at the park, beach, or barn!! These are some of my absolute favorite sessions and I would love to work with you outdoors! (Please note: permitting fees might be needed depending on the location).
Please note, we do own a cat and a dog. They will be locked up during photo sessions but those with allergies might want to avoid home studio pictures (please advise me of allergies in any situation though!) - and when working outdoors at the park there is always the possibility of mosquitoes, ants, or other stinging insects. For barn sessions there is also a barn cat that might be curious and wander upon us during a session. Please inform me of any allergies your child might have before our session!
What do you photograph?
I specialize in portraits of children, however I also offer sessions for high school seniors, families, engagement, newborn, and maternity sessions. I do not photograph events or weddings.
When are you open?
I am available by appointment.
What time of day is best for pictures?
It is highly recommended that all outdoor sessions be done in the late afternoon hours or early morning hours to allow the best light possible and a more comfortable experience.
In door sessions are best done during daylight hours.
When should I have maternity portraits taken?
Around 30-36 weeks is ideal. That way you have a nice round tummy. Please keep in mind when scheduling that I am often booked weeks out. So try to schedule your maternity session well before your desired date.
What age do you recommend my baby be for newborn portraits?
If you want true newborn portraits like those shown in my gallery, we must do baby’s session before he/she is 2 weeks old, with about 1 week old being the best age. We can sometimes work with a baby up to 3 or 4 weeks old, but in general you may not be able to get those cute little scrunched up, sleepy portraits with a baby after the first week or so.
If you would like to schedule a newborn session, I strongly advise that you book your session while you are still pregnant. We will work on changing the session date if it is needed (if baby comes early or late), but by reserving your spot before baby arrives it ensures that I don’t fill my calendar and can fit baby’s session in as soon as possible!
What other ages do you recommend if we miss the newborn stage?
The next age I recommend is 4 months old. Babies between a few weeks, up to around 3 months old do not yet have the muscle control needed to prop themselves up, or hold their head steady. And for this reason, sessions with babies in that age range can be very limiting. If you wait until baby can at least prop up on his elbows and hold his head high on his own, you can have a much better variety with your session images.
After 4 months I recommend a session when baby is sitting alone. Whether baby reaches that milestone by 6 months or 8 months, I always encourage you to wait until baby is sitting well on his own, instead of booking the traditional 6 month session just for the sake of his age. The milestones are so much more important to document than the number!
The 8-9 month old age is one of my favorites. At that age baby is usually sitting, laughing, crawling, and sometimes even standing with assistance. There are lots of fun things we can do with this age baby, so don’t let it pass by!
And of course, the 1 year session. Bring a cake and balloons, and celebrate baby’s first year!
What if my little one gets sick or gets a bruise before the session?
Basic retouching is included with your session fee, so if your little one has a bump, bruise, or bug bite we can correct it. If your little one is feeling sick or suffering from any type of rash, I do require we reschedule. We want your little one to shine for their session, and no one feels like shining when they’re under the weather. I also have to avoid exposing myself to sick children so I don’t pass anything on to other clients.
Can we bring a change of clothes? What type of clothing do you recommend?
Of course! Sessions generally last 1 – 2 hours, so clothing changes are welcome. But with the teeny tiny ones I do recommend we keep it simple. Newborns and young infants are often lost in clothes. Collars cover their chins up, and things just don’t fit right. For this reason, I like to keep it simple…bare skin!
For toddlers and children I encourage a few different outfits so we can have variety. Simple is always popular. Basic jeans, khakis, and plain dresses with bare feet. But I also love colorful, funky outfits! Don’t be afraid of color and layering things up for a modern look. Don’t forget – I also have a wardrobe of clothing that you can choose from!
When will my pictures be ready?
I strive to have all pictures ready in about 2 weeks...but occasionally I might take longer. Please let me know well ahead of time if you are in a rush to get photos back to you so that I can work my schedule around it. Please be aware that I take my time and hand edit every photo so that you have the best quality picture returned to you.
Can I get prints of my pictures? What is included in my session?
Your session fee is for time and editing of the final gallery and digital downloads of the edited files. Prints are not included. Prints can be purchased from your final gallery.
Is their anything else I should know?
For outside shoots please remember that we are shooting in Florida. There might be mosquitoes, ant piles, or other biting bugs on our shoots. I always try to have repellents available but please bring your own so I can avoid any potential allergies. Also please inform me in advance of any medical conditions or allergies that might be triggered while on one of these shoots! Please also be aware that I am not liable in the event of a wildlife attack (be that snake, alligator, shark, dinosaur, or whatever is prowling that day! When we are shooting in the woods or at the beach you are doing so at your own risk!) :)
