First of all - THANK YOU for visiting the new Christina Kjar Photography website & considering the studio for your portraits!

Christina Kjar Photography has been one of the most sought after photographers in Northwest Iowa for over a decade.  Before I tell you more about the studio experience, let me share a little about myself!

In 2003 I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art, with an emphasis in Photography & Graphic Design.  I wasn't quite sure what area I wanted to go into, but soon found myself working for a local portrait photographer - AND LOVED IT!  In 2007 I purchased the studio I had been managing in Storm Lake for the past 4 years, and Christina Kjar Photography was born.  After relocating to Holstein, I soon moved the studio there.  In 2015 I purchased a building downtown & completely remodeled the space to make my perfect studio.

Whether I'm photographing a senior, a wedding or a family.......my goal is to tell their story & to give them memories that they will cherish for a lifetime by not only providing you with beautiful images, but giving you an amazing experience!  I look forward to meeting you for your portrait session!

Since 2003, Christina has won numerous awards on state, district, and international levels.  In 2014, Christina received her Master of Photography from PPA.  In 2012 she received the Don Knop Award, given to the top wedding entry at the Professional Photographers of Iowa convention.  Other awards include 2 Fuji Masterpiece awards, 2 Bronze Photographer of the Year awards through PPA, and many others.  She has been in the Top 10 photographers for Iowa and currently serves as President for the Professional Photographers of Iowa.  Christina also travels to various state conventions to speak to other photographers in the professional industry.

unique & modern portraits

I fell in love with the way Christina captured my personality through her photographs!
