Christy Martin Photography » My Life... clients, family & specials!

  • Christy… The Girl Behind the Lens

    Every great success story starts with a dream. For me, my dream was to always have a camera in hand and a great story behind every shot. In Kindergarten, it was bringing my camera to Show N’ Tell when everyone else brought toys. In middle school, it was getting to know the employees at my local photo lab. In high school, it was an essay I wrote about my 'dream job' of being a photographer.

    I have been truly fortunate to watch my lifelong passion of photography bloom into a career and source of happiness in my life. Part of that happiness comes from my love of children and embracing that in my business. My adoration for kids allows me to engage them in a way that makes sessions feel more like a play-date! Whether it’s chasing them around trees or fields, chatting with them about their favorite flavor of ice cream or watching them laugh while I make a funny face, I find it truly uplifting to be a part of their world.

    In the same way that every picture tells a story, so too does my blog. I use it to capture pieces of both my professional and personal life. It includes client session photos, engaging stories behind those clients, and even little glimpses into my own family, friends and interests. The curls in my daughter's hair and the cool rock my son found are just a few of the things that inspire me every day!

Tinsley

Having the rare privilege of photographing the same child for TEN years provides lots and lots of special memories! Over those years, Tinsley has given me so many moments that I’ll always treasure!  I’ve been so fortunate to meet “Bubba”, photograph all her room details, watch her play in her yard, meet all her closest […]

Kate

Want to know what quality I absolutely LOVE seeing in children (…especially little girls)?  It’s confidence. It’s not at all the kind of confidence that comes across as prideful or sassy.  Instead, it’s the rare characteristic that simply allows that child to be happy with who they are inside. As I’ve photographed Kate for the […]

Matthew, Catalina, Jackie & Kate

Sweet lil’ Jack and I talked about how long I’d been taking his pictures when he stopped to ask me, “Did you know that I was a cute baby?”  My response was pretty instant.  “Yes, I DEFINITELY know that you were a SUPER CUTE baby!  (I’ve posted a few from our previous years together at […]

Michael & Maddox

Excitement and joy are feelings associated with going back to Georgia to visit my family.  However, as my mouse hoovered over the ‘publish‘ button on my blog that would announce my available Georgia sessions the following month, I was filled with doubt, worry and insecurity.  A month later, just hours before my first session was […]

New Inspiration

Being intentional about pursuing a slower way of life has been so beneficial to me and my family. But there IS something I miss so much… the excitement, relationships and passion that PHOTOGRAPHY always gave me. Although I still brought my camera along to snap my kids sticking their heads in the fountain downtown or […]
