Hi, and welcome to the page where I let sponsors and companies know all about what I love to share! If you haven’t read all about me yet, you can do that HERE. But in a nutshell, I love to work with brands and share products on my site that I love, and that my family will love. I share year round evergreen content, as well as focusing on celebrating holidays with my family throughout the year, and I love to inspire my friends on the internet to do the same. The ideas I share all center around creating lasting memories with my family.


Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke started in August 2012, previously called Kristen Duke Photography for 8 years before that. The site began as a place to share photo tips and portrait session sneak peeks, but evolved into sharing Do It Yourself {diy} home projects, recipes, fashion, and life story telling. I reside in Austin, TX with my handy husband and 4 children.

When it comes to working with brands, I’m open to discussing opportunities including:

  • Sponsored Blog Posts
  • Recipe Creation + Food Photography
  • Press Trips
  • Social Media shares
  • Facebook LIVE discussions
  • Speaking Engagements
  • Brand Partnership
  • Brand Ambassador
  • Video creation
  • Giveaways
  • Conference Sponsorship
