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!


Professional Photography… PRICELESS!

When I started my blog several years ago, the purpose was to show families some highlights from their session a few days before their entire gallery would be ready.  But before long, I started sneaking-in a few personal post of my kids on the days I wasn’t photographing clients. Even through I read lots of […]

Sarah, Roberto & Melina

I’ve met a lot of babies, but I don’t think I’ve ever met a baby more fortunate and blessed than Melina. Not only will Melina grow-up speaking two languages, traveling the world and experiencing many cultures, she will grow-up being surrounded by deep love and affection from everyone lucky enough to have met her. But […]

Nick and Jules

If you schedule a session with me, I promise to take longer than 6 minutes to do your photos. UNLESS, of course,  your brother wasn’t able to join us for your senior session a few weeks ago and you just want a super-quick photo together while he’s back in town for Thanksgiving.  Then, I can […]

The Glaros’

Tonight, I’m sending a virtual, late-night hug (and lots of pictures) to Jessica many, many states away! Not only did she trust me to capture her important family and generation photos, she was also put up with me texting her camera-phone pictures off my computer screen of Zachary and Kayla while I was finishing-up her session.

Alex, Andrew and Nathan

Becky was SOOOO smart. She wanted pictures of the boys, so she set-up an appointment, told me all about them over the phone and drove them to me.  That’s it. Instead of coming with us and taking the chance of over-worrying about fake-smiles and wrestling matches, she sat in her car and relaxed while I […]
