  • 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!

In one relationship, I desired more than this person wanted to give.  This caused me to feel bitter, resentful and judgemental. Ironically enough, in another relationship, it was […]

Maui (…a little late!)

Which is crazier…? Matthew taking me to one of the most BEAUTIFUL places on EARTH for the about the same cost as it would have been to go to Florida? Matthew taking me to one of the most BEAUTIFUL places on EARTH and me NEVER posting ANY photos?  Those may seem unbelievable, but BOTH are […]

Our Christmas “Gift”: 2017 Santa Fe

Like most kids, my kids also enjoy gifts.  That’s why, 3 years ago, Matthew and I gathered the kids around and nervously ‘pitched’ our idea of skipping Christmas gifts and taking a family trip instead. Rayna and Ruthie were instantly on board. Ross, however (with his primary “Love Language” being GIFTS), first inquired about whether […]

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 […]
