was  what I was hanging this afternoon downtown Bethel, CT. My show is called:


The Upstairs Gallery in Molten Java

Featured Photographer- Kristen Jensen

On exhibit April 23— June 9th

Public Reception May 2 4-6 PM

The Housatonic Valley Cultural Alliance presents Milk & Cookies, a new photography exhibit at The Upstairs Gallery of Molten Java in Bethel.  Photographer, Kristen Jensen will be featured as part of HVCA’s 2012 Accessible Art Project from April 23 through June 9.  The exhibit can be viewed during Molten Java’s normal business hours.

Bethel, CT based, Kristen Jensen of Kristen Jensen Photography is a lifestyle photographer that has an editorial feel to her advertising, portraits and magazine assignments.  Kristen is also a published author, an image strategist, a spokeswoman, a single mom, a dog lover and she has a real sincere interest in little people (kids) and what make them tick. “I adore kids and love chocolate chip cookies.” The title of this show is a natural for me and feels effortless.

Photographing kids came naturally for Kristen. She had a great model, her son Noah to practice taking photos with. After spending years in front of the camera as an International model with Ford Models, it provided Kristen with a wealth of knowledge as she transitioned to the other side of the lens with ease and an exceptional eye for detail. 

A sample of Kristen’s portfolio, DVD slide shows, rate sheets and references are available upon request. Please visit her website at, email her directly at or call the studio at 1-888-278-1011
