Welcome to the website for Americana Portraits, photography by professional photographer Kristin Hemenway of Bellingham, Washington. As my professional life is expanding from professional photographer to also professional engineering, my availability and pursuits are changing too. I am offering very limited portrait sessions while I am focusing on balancing family and work. My goals remain to capture the heart, soul and adventures of not only my own family, but yours as well, and I am working on developing Americana fine art photography. These changes are only a slight detour, as Americana Portraits has always been rooted in authentic portraits and photography of places I visit and people I love.

Photography is a journey, and I invite you to follow along as I continue to focus on shooting film, using modern and vintage film cameras to capture the life and beauty that surrounds me. Check back often as I work on evolving my site to focus on the captures of Americana family and life.

If you are a former client, thank you for your support through the years. Each and every person and session that I have seen through my lense has changed me in unimaginable ways. The personalities, bonds, and moments have shaped me. I cherish you for trusting me and changing me. You thanked me, but really, I am thanking you.

Please contact me by e-mail if you want to purchase a print or start the conversation to plan a portrait session. xo Kristin (kristin@americanaportraits.com)
