Hello, I'm Dominique and I'm the photographer behind Dominique Kristina Photography.
It's always been a passion of mine to capture memories of special events or just in day to day life. Knowing how important and special to look back at those images in years to come, I decided to do more with photography in 2012 and started DKP. A couple of years into being a portrait photographer, I found my real passion, photographing newborns and babies.
After training with one of the UKs leading newborn photographers, I haven't looked back! Since then, I have invested in education for newborns and portraits to study posing, lighting and safety techniques with some of the UK's and world's best photographers and instructors including Kelly Brown, Sue Bryce and Ana Brandt.
Due to my love in this area of photography and of course my tiny clients, means I am also passionate about keeping them safe. I am a member of BANPAS (Baby and Newborn Photography Association), who promote the safe practice of newborn photography - which I believe is absolutely vital when photographing newborns, making sure their comfort and safety take priority throughout a session. I am always partaking in training in photographing newborns to offer you the best I can.
My home studio is based in Stanton, a short drive from Bury St. Edmunds and Diss and easily accessible across Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and Essex. I have a little studio at my home, designed to give you and your new baby a relaxed and enjoyable experience. I keep the session very relaxed and baby led, ensuring you can relax for a few hours, knowing your gorgeous new bundle is in safe hands.
Away from DKP, I am also a primary school teacher, which I also really enjoy!
'This is the second time that Dominique has photographed my daughter. Dominique is always so patient and aring towards her clients and we are always made to feel so welcome in her studio. In each situation Dominique always has the skills to get beautiful and natural photographs, be that a ten day old who is unsettled or a ten month old who just wants to crawl away! I recommend her all the time to friends, and family who have also been to her studio and have been so happy with the photographs. Thank you Dominique for capturing our daughter so perfectly.' - Lauren
Dominique did a photo session with my four children (between 12 and 4 years) and we have got some beautiful photos to treasure from it! They all really enjoyed the photo shoot itself as it was in the forest, and because she was relaxed and friendly all four of them were also relaxed and happy to smile and pose. She made great suggestions for pictures but also followed their lead so we got some spontaneous pictures too. Her communication was quick and she was flexible with booking the session, and her prices were very reasonable for the amount and quality of pictures we got. I would highly recommend her. - Luisa and family
