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!



Hypothetically speaking, of course, if I were to have a nose-bleed just as I squatted down to take the first photo of a session, there’s NO ONE in the world I’d rather it happen with than my childhood-friend, Jason! Living just a few minutes away, Jason was one of my closest buddies growing-up. I watched […]

That ONE Missing Thing

The Fortners have a LOT of wonderful things. * They’ve grown-up eating and cooking Southern food that would impress any top-notch chef.* In the words of Hank Williams, they “can catch catfish from dusk ’til dawn” and “skin a buck.” (In other words, they all still have their Man Cards.) * They all have an […]
