Meet Kirstie

Hey There! I'm Kirstie! Wife. Mom. Photographer. I Love watching my kids play soccer. Love Pizza. Love my dogs. Always wishing I was at the beach. 

I will be the first person to admit that family pictures are hard to get perfect. Maybe you have been trying for years to get that dream shot where everyone is actually smiling. Or maybe you have just accepted the fact that someone is going to end up crying anyway.

Girl, I got you! I have photographed toddlers who refuse to sit still, the kids who would prefer making any face at the camera but a smiling one, and the babies that never seem to stop crying. Oh and let's not forget the Dad who is being forced into it too. That perfect moment may only last a split second but you can be sure I will capture it. I capture it all, the love, the crazy, the happy and the tender moments in between. That's where the real memories are made. 

I began my journey into photography like most, wanting to capture every moment of their new baby doing all the cute baby things. That was 15 years ago. I began my professional journey almost 13 years ago when I was pregnant with my second child. What a journey it has been!

Newborns, babies, toddlers, children of all ages, high school seniors, families, engagements, weddings and the list goes on. Even though I only take on the occassional wedding these days my focus and love is with babies, children and families. I find the most joy in these sessions.

Time goes by so quickly. I know how cliche that is but dang if it ain't true! Now let's get together and make some memories!

See you soon!

Testimonials

Kirstie is an amazing photographer! I first saw her work when she took pictures for our school’s soccer teams. She captured every player hard at work and not just the stars of the team. Her attention to detail was breathtaking.  I’ve also seen how she photographs her own children. She captures their personalities as well as their beautiful faces. As we have been in these different times with social distancing, I knew I needed someone who could take my daughter’s senior pictures in the comfort and safety my own home, which is even undergoing renovations. I was confident she could do amazing work. She was kind and attentive and made my daughter laugh and feel good about herself.  When we got the pictures back we were blown away. You would never know these were “backyard” pictures.  It looked like we had visited an enchanted garden.  She brought out my daughter’s beauty inside and out. Kirstie helped bring a highlight to this difficult time for my senior. I highly recommend Kirstie Goodman Photography. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I are recent transplants to Kentucky.  When we found out that we were expecting our first child together this spring, I began to do my research on photographers in the Elizabethtown area.   To say that I stalked photographer’s social media pages might be an understatement, but I knew just how important these photos would be for us.  I needed to choose the right photographer to capture these precious moments as we began to expand our family together. After many months of following different social media accounts, I made the choice to go with Kirstie.  My husband and I have been thrilled with that decision.

 We’re currently living in uncertain times with COVID-19. Kirstie made both my husband and myself feel very comfortable with her photographing our newborn son. Upon entering our home, she immediately washed her hands.  As a previous surgical RN, I can say that Kirstie may have been more thorough than some surgeons that I’ve witnessed throughout my career. (HAHA)  Although our house was 76 degrees, she didn’t dare think of taking off her mask for the duration of the photo-shoot. During the session, I admired how patient Kirstie was. She took her time and ensured that she was able to capture all of our visions.

 My husband and I were speechless when we received our proofs.  Every photo was more beautiful than the last. Her ability to capture these gorgeous photos is truly a gift.  Kirstie’s photographs are keepsakes that we will cherish for years to come. 

 As if the photos weren’t enough, today we received the most beautiful box with our newborn son’s photo on it.  In that box held a personalized USB port with his photo.  This is such a beautiful touch that really sets Kirstie above and beyond other photographers that I have worked with in the past.  This is the type of photographer you want to invest in.

After we had our first son we started looking for a local photographer to capture precious moments with our sweet boy. I had been searching Facebook looking at the different photographers my friends had used. The one that really made an impression was Kirstie Goodman. Yes we saw lots of awesome pictures but something about Kirstie’s work really stuck out to me. It’s like she’s  able to capture the soul of the family in her work. I reached out to her right before Cooper hit 3 months and we’ve been hooked ever since. She captured him growing up his first year and beyond. When I got pregnant with our second son I knew for sure she would be doing our newborn pictures! She came to the house and made everything so comfortable. Kirstie is down to earth, beyond flexible, and is AMAZING with kids. She has gotten cooper(5 yr old) to do things so easily. And he has fun doing it! We just got done celebrating Declan’s first birthday with Kirstie taking pictures. Let me tell you they are the best I’ve seen!! I showed them to everyone that would put up with me.

We look forward to many more years with her, celebrating milestones, birthdays, and holidays. Our boys absolutely adore Kirstie as do we. Kirstie is more than just a photographer. She becomes family!!!

I would recommend Kirstie Goodman photography all day every day! She has a way of making adults who don't like to be in front of the camera feel comfortable. And, kids? She's a wizard with children of all ages. She's patient, engaging and willing to do what it takes to capture your family's essence.

I feel like a review in writing could in no way do her justice, but I will try!! Kirstie's gentle soul and huge heart ❤️ definitely makes our family completely comfortable every time and she has this knack of getting all the kids to pay attention with her silly personality and her crazy techniques to capture every perfect moment.  Every time we have difficulties trying to pick "the one" to hang on the wall because it's impossible to choose.  ❤️❤️❤️ LOVE, LOVE, LOVE KIRSTIE GOODMAN... forever my photographer she will be.   -Angela Roberts

I remember seeing the art of Kirstie Goodman’s pictures when she was recommended to me as our wedding photographer. 8 years later, I can honestly say that booking her for our wedding pictures was one of the best decisions we have ever made! Since then, she has captured so many beautiful memories of our growing family- from minis to family sessions, we fall in love with her photography a little more each time. But it’s not just the photos that make her unique, it’s the effort she puts in to making picture taking enjoyable. My husband has even set stipulations- “I’ll take family pictures, but only if Kirstie Goodman does them!” Thank you, Kirstie for capturing our special moments- from our wedding 8 years ago, to portraits of now with two little ones, you have been there every step of the way.

I am always so amazed with your talent! Every single session I have had with you I say “these are my favorite photos ever!” You capture those perfect little moments, smiles, laughs, your eye for that is unreal AND you make the experience so fun!  Thank you for giving me photos that I will treasure forever.

When I walk through our home and see the framed memories surrounding me it reminds me of how happy I am for the investment we have made in documenting important milestones in life. Someone once told me when my husband and I became engaged just how important it is to find a photographer who can capture moments for you to last a lifetime. I knew without a doubt Kirstie was that person - her work simply spoke for itself. Since that time we have grown to a family of four, and Kirstie has been there to capture all of the important moments. Engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, and now family photos. There is nobody I trust more than Kirstie to document these moments - the beautiful images she captures are a true testament to her talent and dedication to her clients. I am forever grateful to Kirstie for the memories surrounding me and will cherish them forever.
