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!


Choco and his family

I had been home less than a mintue on Sunday when Ross turns the corner and says, “You take pictures of dog, Mama?  I wanna’ see!  I wanna’ see!”  Ross wasn’t the only one excited about Choco’s pictures!  I think Choco himself got a kick out of someone following him, well, chasing him, around for […]

Little Da Vinci

I have photographed for Little Da Vinci twice before for Kids Celebrate Magazine.  However, I was happy to work with them again doing event coverage for their first Art Exhibition!  All of the kid’s art work was displayed for their parents, friends and family to view.  They also had different stations set up where the […]

My Home Away from Home

I found myself at New Way Learning Academy once again!  This time, instead of photographing seniors or staff, I was asked to get some fun, candid shots of the kids for New Way’s website and marketing material.  Fun is easy at this school!  Most every student, although it was an early Monday morning, was ready […]

Jack & Jenny

Jack & Jenny… Aren’t they adorable?  Jack was so patient with his little sister.  You could tell how much Jenny loved him because she wanted to do whatever he was doing.  I love how Jack is holding his skateboard in the shot.  To me, photographs are more than just smiling kids looking into the camera.  I think […]

Sneak Peek: Addison

Addison and those beautiful blue eyes… This was a candid moment when her dad was putting her dress on.  I just love the contrast between his manly arms and those tiny, girly ruffles! I had to add this picture because I think it’s so funny.  This is the pitiful look their dog was giving us […]

Sneak Peek: Shane & Alison

It was so hard to choose my favorite images from this session!  These boys were so cute and great to be around.  The shoot was filled with running, playing, watching the ducks and a trip to the playground when we finished.   I received an email from Alison the next day which I have to share.  […]

Sneak Peek: Mack & Jack’s MARKETING SOLUTIONS

I photographed Michaela, President of Mack & Jack’s MARKETING SOLUTIONS, for their website and promotional photos.   While it was my third time working with her, I still learned more and more about the history behind her company.  (There’s some great stories which illustrate how dedicated and customer-driven she is.) Please check out Mack & Jack’s website […]
