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!

Kylie

Kylie is the kind of person who quietly and humbly serves 4-year olds at church each week.  Not only does she patiently reassure RUTHIE ‘crying children,’ she often brings her friends along to serve within the church as well.  When she told me her dream to work with children one day as a career, I […]

Tieg, Melissa, Grayson, Kensley & Maddox

Although I didn’t recognize the number when my phone rang, I certainly knew the familiar area code.  When I answered, a very nice man explained that all his wife wanted for Mother’s Day was for him to call me and arrange a photo session when I came back to Georgia.  (I told him that was […]

Tinsley

Shortly after Ross was born, I began to DREAM of being a ‘real‘ photographer.  I use to think the best part would be getting to do exactly what I loved to do- taking pictures!  Although I STILL love the creative process of capturing memories and moments, I quickly realized building RELATIONSHIPS were actually one of […]
