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!

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 […]

An Evening at Hanna Family Ranch

Pulling out of Will and Waltina’s long driveway, I secretly wished I could drive home, grab my toothbrush, extra clothes, my Bible and just MOVE-IN to the Hanna Family Ranch for a few weeks. I would gladly take care of their animals all day. I would eagerly wash dishes (and lick all the bowls!) after […]

Buffalo River highs… and the truth about the lows

As much as I enjoy taking photographs of our family’s memories, I enjoy taking videos just as much! I love being able to document highlights from our trips, vacations and milestones.  My kids also love choosing a few to watch at bedtime. But there IS a problem with our family videos.  It’s the same problem […]

Naomi’s Story

Normally, when my sister and I talk on the phone every day, our conversations are usually centered around something we’re cooking, somewhere we’re going or something too immature to share with anyone else.  But there WAS one particular phone call with Hannah almost two years ago that I will ALWAYS remember. I asked her how […]
