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!

Maui: Favorite Spots

For our 15 year anniversary several years ago, Matthew and I traded-in some hotel points and booked our first trip to Maui. The warm breeze, beautiful waters and scenic coast quickly told us we would be back again (…and again) (… and again) (…and ‘let’s go ahead and plan ‘Road to Hana’ for next year’s […]

Adventures in a New Season

As quickly as our house sold and I began boxing-up books and craft supplies, Ruthie started specifically praying we could move into an apartment. Based on her heart-felt conversations with God, I guess it shouldn’t have surprised me when the house we planned on moving into didn’t go through. You can imagine the SMILE on […]

On the road again…

If me or my crew ever have a chance to take a trip, we’ll ALWAYS say “YES!”  Even better when our final destination includes cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and a beautiful backyard to enjoy! Matthew’s the most talented dude I know! Matthew’s dad sends out a Bible verse everyday, but before he does, he takes […]

Naomi’s Story

Normally, when my sister and I talk on the phone every day, our conversations are usually centered around something we’re cooking, somewhere we’re going or something too immature to share with anyone else.  But there WAS one particular phone call with Hannah almost two years ago that I will ALWAYS remember. I asked her how […]
