About Tulsa Photographer Kristen Mackey

Tulsa Newborn Photographer Kristen Mackey

I have the two best jobs in the world; I am a mother to two beautiful children and I’m blessed to work with babies and children to create lifelong memories.

I graduated college in 2004 with a degree in Business Management.  After graduating, my husband and I moved to Tulsa and I began my career at QuikTrip Corporation where I worked in Human Resources for 5 years.  It was after having my son in 2007 I began my journey in photography.  I was completely inspired by my son; all I wanted was nice pictures of him growing up (hence the name Son Kissed.)  I began taking photography classes in 2007 and that hobby quickly blossomed into a passion.  My Human Resources background has been a great asset to my business; building and maintaining relationships is so important to me.

In addition to my full-time career as a custom newborn photographer serving the Tulsa, OK area, I have been teaching fellow newborn photographers from around the world how to properly and safely pose newborns since 2011.  I have taught over 1000 photographers and have spoken at newborn conferences both nationally and internationally.

I have captured over 1400 newborns in my 9 year career as a newborn photographer and  I am truly blessed that God has given me this incredible gift.
