Photography. Design. Art. Wilmington, NC

Kirsten Boehmer

I’m in the middle of a rebrand at the moment, broadening my focus from strictly photography, to include other forms of expression – so bear with me along the journey please, until I get my website to reflect this new direction.

I’ve been a professional photographer for 9 years. I love photographing people. Landscapes and things are lovely, but for me personally, I think a photo is missing something without a human in there.

I appreciate genuine people with good intentions, kindness, and not filling every moment with conversation. I like things that are real – like stone and wood and a rainbow appearing in my kitchen from a crystal in the window. I like bare feet on moss and the sound of bamboo wind chimes. I make a ritual of coffee and Cuban music on weekend mornings.  I love light and the earth and the sea and a well-timed “that’s what she said” joke.

I love to rollerskate and I play roller derby for the Cape Fear Roller Girls.  Starting that adventure truly changed my life.

I love capturing an image that makes my heart skip a beat, and I love putting on an 80’s movie and pushing paint around on a canvas all afternoon in my studio. I love the feel of a tool cutting through a slab of clay, and losing the world while at the same time finding myself in art.

So if you’re still reading this, that’s a little about me. Right now, I’m re-learning who I am as an artist by going back to the pure things that inspire me. I am still doing photography – But I’m also web and graphic designing, painting, constructing, and a whole lot of things that I hope will lead me in a new creative direction.

I live in Wilmington, NC in a house that I still can’t believe is mine, with a husband who still makes me laugh after 20 years.
