Morgantown-Fairmont West Virginia | Wedding-Senior Photographer | Meet Me Monday - Kuirsta

February 23, 2015  •  1 Comment

In the hope of shedding some light on who we are behind the lens, I thought doing a series of Meet Me Monday posts to introduce ourselves with a few facts might be fun.   With that said, here are some interesting things about me, Kuirsta.

  1. I fell in LOVE with photography as a child.  I was that little girl running around snapping pictures of anything and everything.  Using my little sisters and brother, and all my friends as models.  I'm pretty sure I even dressed up a cow or two.
  2.  I'm a farmers daughter.  Born and raised in rural North Western Michigan.  I've milked cows, learned how to drive using a tractor, played hide and seek in a corn field, and once brought my prize cow to school for show and tell. (Yes it's all true. This girl has country roots.)
  3. I was in spandex for 14 years of my life, playing volleyball, 4 of which were throughout college.  
  4. Dt. Mt. Dew is King.
  5. Salsa is my ketchup.
  6. Skinny Caramel Macchiatos and back massages are the way to my heart.
  7. I have the cutest little boy eva!! His name is Greyson Cooper, and I never knew I could love someone so much!
  8. My husband, Seth and I met while serving at Cracker Barrel in college. 
  9. I graduated college with a BA in Elementary Education.  Went on to teach as a long term Special Ed. teacher, until I made the decision to pursue photography as a full time career. 
  10. I LOVE to laugh.  A lot.  I'm not afraid to make a fool of myself.  Prepare yourselves, your session will be nothing short of entertaining.
  11. I'm addicted to LIPSTICK! Currently bright pink or a deep purpley pink.
  12. I will splurge on a beautiful pair of boots or Big Star Jeans.
  13. I didn't get the "Crafty Straathof Gene", so everything I pin on Pinterest will 1. never happen, or 2. I will pay someone to do it for me.
  14. Tripp (Goldendoodle) and Marley (Shih Tzu) are my fur-babies.  
  15. I'm extremely bashful.  But don't let it fool you, once you get to know me, I won't shut-up.
  16. My first car was an '89 Ford F-150 farm use truck.
  17. Traveling the world is a must.  I love taking in the beauty of other countries and their cultures.
  18. My favorite food to snack on is pistachios.  
  19. I was named after a woman from Germany.
  20. This is no-brainer, but I absolutely LOVE my life, family, and job! 

 

Hope you enjoyed learning a little about what makes me, me!
