Self Portrait


Hi! My name is Kristen Higgins, I’m an independent portrait photographer and writer for New England Sounds. I am a student of The New York Institute of Photography, and possess my certificate in portraiture through the school. Over the last 2 years, I’ve used my photographs as opportunities to expose just a moment’s expression of human experience, particularly in my portraits. I enjoy taking on portraits with artists in particular, and using my training in portraiture as an opportunity to create a cinematic atmosphere for my clients, complete with custom lighting and concept design. I take a lot of inspiration from the movie industry, and believe having your portrait taken is an experience, a telling of your own story, and is a chance to fully expose who you are through theme and mood.

I have a fully equipped studio for a range of work, from simple headshots to complicated projects. I am also available for location shoots. To inquire about portraits, feel free to fill out the contact form and I will be happy to customize a package for you!
