After a two year hiatus from professional photography, Candid Gems was launched to merge some ongoing photography work with personal blog writings. This blog also archives the past works of Kristine Atienza Photography.
The name Candid Gems originated from Kristine’s own personal ‘Speak Project’ to provide chronicled adventures, spontaneity, and honesty that her most precious gems, her kids, could one day look back on. The author, Kristine Atienza, is a mom of three, a photographer, and a NICU RN devoted to creating the sweet life for her family.
