Coastal Virginia and Northeast North Carolina Yearbook Representative

My Story

Having been a professional photographer and a former school fundraising consultant, I bring a unique set of skills to help your yearbook program excel. I will teach you and your staff how to use the tools, products and resources Walsworth has to offer. I believe an experience where you feel supported and guided from start to finish will lead to a successful year and a quality publication that delivers on time and on budget.

It is very important to me to be a valued member of your yearbook team. I am extremely passionate about helping our youth learn and expand on their creativity while preserving memories.

Let's chat about the one-of-a-kind service only Walsworth and I can provide. Together we will accomplish great things!

Get creative when planning your 2021 coverage

Planning your yearbook coverage is a whole new ball game this year. Previous years may have allowed you to take last year’s ladder and tweak it for the upcoming year, but some schools are completely reimagining their coverage approach. That may sound scary, but it’s actually a great thing!

Yearbook Snap makes crowdsourcing a breeze

Yearbook Snap, Walsworth’s mobile app, makes your crowdsourcing efforts easier than ever. It is the free app for our web-based Community Upload.

What People Are Saying...

Kirsten is unlike any sales rep I have ever worked with. Her warm disposition and true care for yearbooks, the students, and me as a yearbook adviser is always appreciated. Time and time again she bends over backwards to help us out no matter the situation we find ourselves in as we have worked on our publication... Whenever I have a question, I can call, email, or text Kirsten and it is never long before I hear back from her. She has a true passion for making our yearbook the best it can be.

Kirsten Smith provides unlimited support. She checks in with me on a regular basis, is available whenever needed, responds right away and has solutions to any issues that may come up. She makes it a point to meet not only me, the yearbook adviser, but has come to class on more than several occasions to meet with the students, talk about the process of creating the yearbook, related careers and to give hands on training to get us started or on something specific we were interested in. She is my biggest cheerleader and knowing that I have five other classes in addition to Yearbook, she is able to steer me in the right direction in order to be successful.
