HairSTORY Exhibit

The Photography of Krista Stoltzfus

Krista Stoltzfus is co-owner & lead photographer at Higher Focus Studios (HFS), based out of Garrett, PA. A little over 10 years ago, Krista & Kristen (co-owner & associate) met during greeting time at church, quickly realized their common love of photography and thus HFS was born. Higher Focus Studios was founded on a specific quote, as a simple reminder of what they want their focus in life to be; "Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things." Colossians 3:2. Over the past 10 years, Krista has photographed well over 100 weddings, as well as a vast amount of family & senior portraits. She describes her style as timeless and authentic. With a love for nature and sunsets Krista Stoltzfus began photographing landscapes back in high school as a way to remember the brilliant colors & textures. Growing up, her father always had a Nikon film camera and would teach her how to expose correctly during their family portraits. Her father was a big influence & supporter for Krista in her budding photography career. Even after taking several college level photography courses & earning a BA in Art, her passion for photography has continued to grow. A dream that had its roots in nature photography has grown into a successful wedding & portrait photography business. Authentic emotion & fleeting moments are what captivate Krista’s passion to photograph people over nature. To capture a person’s purest, natural smile is her goal of every session and every wedding celebration. Krista Stoltzfus, along with her husband and daughter, currently resides on their family run farm in Garrett, PA. When she is not working on HFS business, she is often helping her husband in the produce fields, heading up marketing campaigns for their farm business, or simply being a mom of an energetic 4 year old.

HairSTORY exhibition will be on display in the Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center Gallery from July 3, 2019 - July 26, 2019. A FREE opening reception will take place Saturday, July 6, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.
