Founded by photographer Christina Kling-Garrett in 2011, Klings & Things Photography specializes in artistic prints, sports sessions, personal branding sessions, and corporate shoots. Based in St. Louis, MO, Christina is an on-location photographer who believes that beauty can be found anywhere and should be found everywhere.

What’s in a name…

Christina’s parents opened the original Klings & Things in 1974 as an eclectic brick-and-mortar gift store. Located in Osage, Iowa, the store set out to bring art and beauty into people’s homes and lives. Although that store has since closed, Christina shares their mission through her photography.

Christina’s perspective, though, most certainly is…

By seeing the ordinary in an unusual way, Christina produces photographs that speak to a variety of individuals. Since 2011, she has loaned her unique perspective to CEOs, parents, children, coaches, and alternative performers to elicit emotion, enhance professionalism, and inspire confidence.

“Christina has a great understanding of color depth and composition; this might be due to the fact that she grew up with a dark room in her home. She has a very classical style of image making that is often lost with the digital age.”
