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!

Brian, Kelly, Maggie & Sally

Photography sessions should be as much as a priority as eating well, new tires and family trips to the zoo. However, it’s true that sometimes scheduling a session can get overlooked with the rush of life. So, I LOVE when people are given the GIFT of a PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION! A friend and NWA real estate […]

The Cooks

I’m crazy about any lil’ girl who asks me to make her shrimp pasta, surprises me at the end of our session (see last photo!) and gives her brother REAL squeezes! In Photoshop, I added extra space to this photo below. I’m going to show Jamie some printing options (ie: notepads, dry erase board, family […]

Baby Crew

WAIT… we were JUST celebrating lil’ Cohen getting a baby brother, right?!?! Well, all of a sudden, baby Crew is SOOO big that my lower back starts tingling and going numb after holding him longer than 30 seconds. Big… but cute and sweet!
