A Snapshot in Time with Kristy Wolfe

Update: 2021-02-04


When Kristy Wolfe’s son was born 8 weeks early, she spent 54 days in the NICU with camera in hand. Her intention was to document the journey for herself, her family, and her loved ones. When she offered to take pictures for some of the other patients, hospital regulations led her to seek other avenues to help those who wanted their medical experiences captured. The result was a foray into the world of professional photography and she has been telling stories through her enthralling photos ever since.

As an educator and public speaker based in Canmore, Alberta, Kristy’s passion for helping others tell their stories of strength, love, hope and resilience gives families confirmation that they are not alone.

One of her biggest passions is helping caregivers see themselves in the story through her captivating photography. In doing so, she is creating a space for people to share their struggles, providing a means to support one another, and generating a medium for healing.
