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!

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 […]

Kyle, Rania, Adam and Aiden

Rania’s last words to me on the phone before our weekend session was, “If you can get Aiden to be still, I will clap for you!” Well, although the boys DID do a lot of running (as posted a few photos down), I was able to pull-out some tricks and capture Aiden’s attention long enough […]

Jeremy, Becca and the boys!

There was plenty of licks and running during this session with Judah, Caleb, Isaac and their new puppy! (Don’t you just LOVE their outfits?!?!  Great job, Becca!) Enjoy your pictures!

Robbie, Marcy and Tinsley

I have had the JOY of photographing Tinsley many, many times!  One of my favorite sessions this year was her 5th birthday party!  Another great memory for me was when I did a Lifestyle Session at her house a few years ago.  I remember laying on the grass in her backyard- watching Tinsley play tea-party […]
