“You can’t compare someone’s middle, or where they are, to your beginning.”

— Kristen Brown

Bio:Me llamo Kristen – that’s Español for “My name is Kristen.” Not too long ago, it was love at first wipeout after my first surf lesson in New York City - -  within a year of that first lesson, I retired from the hustle and bustle of the NYC corporate banking world and traded in my heels for a surfboard and camera in Costa Rica. Most days you can find me surfing beautiful Costa Rican waves, photographing a breathtaking sunset, or playing on the beach with my Chihuahua, Gidget. I’m a sunset chaser, soul surfer, and photographer for the sunset dreamers + wild at heart. You can check out my brand and editorial work here, wedding and family photography work here, bring a piece of paradise home with you via my sunset and beach prints at The Sunset Shop, and chase sunsets with me on Instagram @sambatothesea!
