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!

Something to Celebrate

Although our family values good grades, school plays, new karate belts and finishing piano books, it’s far from where our praise is found. For our family, there’s NOTHING worth celebrating MORE than seeing God’s plan being carried […]

Naomi Joy

After lots of years of waiting, she was created. After lots of cautious weeks of developing, her announcement was made. After lots of prayers, her CF test results came back negative.  (Praise the Lord!) After all of this, we all believe God has a very special plan for Naomi’s life. Here’s my newest and most […]
