  • 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!

Dave (and a plug for head shots)

I met Dave two years ago at a wedding I was photographing.  He was the pastor and I was so impressed with his meaningful and symbolic words throughout the ceremony.  Since that wedding, I have received several calls from Dave, just wanting to make sure I haven’t decided to go back to photographing weddings.  He’ll […]

When we heard the news my niece was going to be in a musical, we were so excited to make the 6-hour trip to be there for it.  (My mother-in-law drove even longer!) Madison is sooooo talented, sweet and funny.  It’s not a surprise why she has so many fans! There’s more coming soon, but […]

Jeff, Kresta & the kids

This past week has been the busiest and most demanding time I ever remember having.  A new website has created issues I never thought possible.  But each day, I looked forward to sharing the Fosters family session.  Although I’m a few days later than I wanted to be with their Sneak Peeks, I finished all […]
