  • 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!

Happy 1st Birthday, Grant!

I absolutely LOVE photographing birthday parties! I strongly believe every mother should consider giving herself this gift to celebrate her child’s special day!  Not only does it allows all the hard-work and details to be documented, it gives the mother the opportunity to actually be IN the photos!  My clients are always so happy that […]

Campus Special

Over the past 3 years, I’ve loved being Chau’s family photographer and documenting his ridiculously-adorable children’s lives.  If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve seen their cuteness in a field or during a Lifestyle Session in their home. So, when I got an email asking if I would do head-shots for his company, Campus Special, […]

Happy Birthday, Tinsley

It has been so neat watching Tinsley grow-up.  I’ve photographed her family each year, so I was tickled-pink (no pun intended) when I was asked to photograph her very fancy 5th birthday party this year! Here’s a slideshow with a few more…   Also, if you liked this of Ross or this of Rayna, you’ll […]
