Let me start with my story....

Hi,

I'm Kristie. Welcome to my blog! I am the owner of Kristie Kuo Photography and I'm also a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate for Omaha, Nebraska and its surrounding areas.   Allow me to share a bit of my story and background with you.

 

My love for photography started in childhood. My mother used to dress my sister and me in matching outfits for photographs. At 12, my family emigrated from Taiwan to Argentina. In Argentina, photographs allowed me to capture good memories with friends as well as surrounding architecture and landscapes. It was in Buenos Aires where I began to hone my passion and my craft.

 

Twelve years later, on a missionary trip to Tijuana, my camera documented the three days I spent enjoying the culture and hospitality of the people. It was then that I realized the power of photojournalism.

 

After marriage and three kids, I was inspired to pick up the camera again because I realized that I was not capturing enough memories of my growing family. So on May 11, 2014 (Mother's Day) I went to Target and got myself a DSLR camera. The rest is history!

 

In June 2023, I achieved a long-time dream of mine by obtaining my real estate license and embarking on a new career as a real estate agent. It's something I have wanted to do for a while, and I am thrilled to finally have the opportunity. I am eager to assist my friends, family, and past clients with any real estate inquiries or needs they may have. If you're interested, feel free to contact me for a complimentary consultation on your home's value or a detailed report on your home equity for investment purposes.

 

Explore your dreams and discover your passion. True passion never dies!

Christine Lind - A writer and author from Omaha, Nebraska

July 18, 2018

Last year, I had the honor and privilege to photograph headshots for a local writer... Christine Lind.  During our headshot session, we chatted about family, dreams, and our calling.  At the end of the session, I felt like I found a good friend and sister through Christ.  I know where I can go if one day I need any type of Christian Counseling.  If you have time, take a look at her beautiful website... www.christinelind.com and don't forget to sign up for her stories.

MIKAELA M. // MARIAN HIGH SCHOOL - CLASS OF 2018

MIKAELA // MIRIAM 2018 (NE)MIKAELA // MIRIAM 2018 (NE)

Two weeks ago I had the chance to take some senior portraits for this sweet, lovely girl named Mikaela.  Her parents and friends love to call her "Kaela" which is one of my favorite names for girls.  Kaela loves to read, watch movies, and be with her friends.  Her favorite band is One Direction and she also enjoys listening to Broadway music.  One of her favorite memory from Mirian High School was the Freshman Retreat; in which she stayed overnight and had the chance to connect and bond with her classmates.  Her dream is to go into a good college, travel, and have a good job and family.  We wish you the best for your last year in high school and good luck in college.

Today I had the honor and privilege to take Sam's senior portraits.  He was so easy to work with and on top of that ..... PHOTOGENIC!  Sam will be attending Pius X High School in Lincoln, NE this coming Fall for his last year of high school.  We knew Sam and his family for years; usually, we see Sam at tennis tournaments around Nebraska and the surrounding states.  He is always sweet to our family and to all his friends.  We love him for his kindness, friendliness, and politeness.   Sam is a very good tennis player and we also discovered that he has the ability to remember the scores to almost every tennis match of all his tennis friends!  We want to wish you a very successful and fun senior year!  Kristie Kuo Photography

 


WINTER WONDERLAND JANUARY 2017

June 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

On January 16th and 17th, we had freezing rain in the area.  Schools were cancelled due to the hazardous road conditions.  Because of this we went out to explore our front yard.  Below is a video (listen to the sound of ice crystals crushing against each other) and a collage of some pictures I took during these couple days.  Feel free to share! :)

Have a great week everyone!

KRISTIE KUO PHOTOGRAPHY LANDSCAPE SLIDESHOW 2016

June 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I remember writing my first blog post featuring the famous photographer, Ansel Adams.  He is considered America's greatest landscape artist.  He once said, "You don't take a photograph, you make it."  Like Ansel Adams, my dream is to travel to different countries and capture their natural beauty through photography. But before I embark on that journey, I have an abundance to photograph and explore right here in Nebraska! I love the breathtaking landscapes of the Midwest prairies along with each day’s spectacular sunrise and sunset. 

For those of you that love landscape photography as much as I do—below is a music slideshow of some of my favorite landscape photos.  If you enjoy the slideshow, please remember to like my Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/kristiekuophotography) and feel free to share.

SLEEKLENS.COM Strike A Pose Portrait Presets and Strike A Pose Brushes

December 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I am in awe of these new Lightroom portrait presets and brushes I got from SLEEKLENS.COM (Strike A Pose Portrait Presets and Strike A Pose Brushes).  I absolutely love how easy they are to use and the results are fantastic!  For Lightroom Presets, you just need to click your favorite presets and apply.  For the brushes, all you need to do is apply over the areas where you want to edit and click done. Because of these presets and brushes I cut down my editing workflow time in HALF and got really good results.

Below are the links to two of their workflow products for portrait photography:
