This week’s featured member is KrisD Mauga of Krashing Motions Photography and KrashSets  from sunny Long Beach , California.

Kris is a triple threat in the business, she is an amazing mom and wife, an uber talented photographer and she also runs her own preset and design company. Feel like you’re an underachiever now?? Plus, all of this was just accomplished in the last four years.

KrisD is known for her fun and real moments between couples. I asked her what she loves to photograph and where she gets her inspiration from, she answered, ”  I love capturing couples engaging with each other and being in the moment.  I am inspired by the real moments, their interaction with each other.  I deem my style as editorial journalism.  I am inspired by editorial photography and street photography.  With these inspirations, I feel I am able to capture work that is unique and powerful.”

KrisD started her photography business in 2008 and her design business this year.  Although she is still fairly new to the industry, I asked her if she could go back in time and give herself some advice what would it be? She said, ” Embrace your failures as the stepping stones towards success.”

Of course, as photographers we always want to know.. Hey what’s in your bag? KrisD replied, ” For every day 7D 50 1.4/, 20 2.8 LED Video light, batteries & cards, iphone. For weddings 7D, 5D MarkII, 35.14, 50 1,4, 135 2.0, lens baby composer, 60 2.8 macro, 580 ex II, 2 back up flashes, 2 led’s (of course card n batteries) h2o, energy bar, 5 hour energy, and iPhone.”
