Lifestyle Photographer in Salt Lake City - Kirstin Roper

I am a documentary photographer, a visual storyteller, from Salt Lake City, Utah. I am passionate about capturing powerful, intimate experiences in the sometimes messy but beautiful story of life. My images embrace real people, real emotion, and real life. My work can be seen in the permanent exhibits at the Natural History Museum of Utah. Also, In 2012, I traveled with the Museum to document the techniques and lives of Navajo Basket Weavers in south-eastern Utah, for a special exhibit entitled, Weaving a Revolution. Images were utilized in large exhibit form in the traveling space at the Natural History Museum of Utah, as well as a large coffee table style book, both designed by the team at the museum, documenting the Renaissance that these incredible Navajo artists started in the Monument Valley region. Additionally, I was commissioned by the Natural History Museum of Utah to create thousands of portraits for the Genetic Trait Tree, the local aspect to the special exhibit developed and produced by the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History entitled Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code. I have also had the honor of traveling with the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champions Ambassador Tour for the past 3 years; documenting the Champions as they meet with their state representatives, celebrities, corporate sponsors, and even President Obama and First Lady Michele Obama. Events included: ceremonies on stage, concerts, fund raising, and behind the scenes relationships to provide an overall feel of the exciting and high energy trip. My Education: I have an Associates Degree in Photography, and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Visual Communications from Weber State University. Working towards a Masters Degree in the near future.

I love photographing family energy... been doing it in the documentary feel for 17 years. Family sessions are one of the most cherished things for my camera. As proof, despite nearly two decades as a pro, and being published from music albums to museums, my most cherished honor in the medium is an image of my late Uncle Ron, on the front cover of his funeral program. It captures a wily smirk and was made at a large family gathering one sunny Summer day in New Hampshire. It meant the world to be surprised with that. The natural moments of connection of your family, through big open hearts, is what I'm after. It's a mix of documentary, lifestyle and fine art. It's real. It's slow and soft or loud and crazy... it's everything. The goal is to become one of your family photographers through life, one session at a time. Often we'll put something physical that you already share together as a family. Could be cooking. Could be basketball or surfing or soccer or skiing. You enjoy, and I'll document the magic. For more of my history and accolades, please head on over to my website.
