Today I present to you another photographer friend, Kjrsten Madsen! Despite having never met in real life I know she has killer style (in every way from her shoes to her website) AND a killer eye because her work is gorgeous. She also makes me insanely jealous that she lives in Europe, looking at photos of the trips her family takes makes me groan with how much I wish I was there too:)
