Kristina Kelly

Ireland

Hello! My name is Kristina, and I've been calling Ireland my home for the past 20 years although my origins are in Lithuania.

I've been blessed with an amazing husband and 2 beautiful girls that are my world, and recently Teddy - little Bichon Frise puppy - our newest addition to our family. We're all big geeks that love to do everything and anything that involves music, travelling, movies, food (we looooove food!), gardening, technology and obviously photography. I always loved photography, my mum and I used to sit on the floor and go through boxes and boxes of photographs she had that each told a story. When I first came to Ireland I became obsessed with documenting all our adventures on this incredible land and that obsession had grown even more when my girls were born. I could sense how fleeting the time was and how important it was to capture those moments so they're not lost forever in our ageing minds.

I was a tomboy when I was growing up...bruised legs and arms were part of my look back in the day. My little girl is totally following my lead on this one...I used to love riding my bike that took me on all sorts of fun trips. This is a huge part of why I particularly love documenting adventures in Ireland's stunning scenery.

Also, I'm a die hard romantic and I see love stories in every day moments...I love giving people memories to look back on that bring a heartfelt reaction, making moments of connection, laughter and fun to be remembered year after year. I believe love is love in all of the languages and in all of the circumstances! I therefore welcome and celebrate all BIPOC, LGBTQ+, differently-abled and non-traditionally structured families.
