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!

Jeff, Kresta & the kids

This past week has been the busiest and most demanding time I ever remember having.  A new website has created issues I never thought possible.  But each day, I looked forward to sharing the Fosters family session.  Although I’m a few days later than I wanted to be with their Sneak Peeks, I finished all […]

Farredeh

I recently listened to someone who was interviewing Farredeh.  After the man made a comment that she looked like a super-model when she walked in the room, Farredeh was quick to set the record straight that she was just a ‘normal, stay-at-home mom.’ When I met her for the first time, it was clear by […]

Caleb

Caleb’s request was simple:  “Just a few head-shots.” However, during the session, I kept finding myself enthusiastically saying, “Caleb!  I just thought of the coolest shot for you.  Can we do what I’m thinking?” He would just laugh and say, ‘just head-shots.’ I could have photographed Caleb for a lot longer than I actually did, […]

12Stone Village

Eight years ago, Matthew and I found ourselves quietly slipping into the seats of a new and somewhat intimidating church.  Coming from a Baptist background, I looked around at the greeters and ushers and wondered why these people were dressed so casual at church.  Most people’s attire consisted of shorts, overalls or leather motorcycle jackets.  […]

Joshua

Is it just me, or does anyone else out there think Joshua could make his parents a LOT of money modeling?!?!   His sister jumped in for a few pictures with him.  Except for the occasional head-lock, they really did enjoy being together.

Dylan

Have you ever experienced a moment you’d like to freeze in time?   Dylan and I had been talking non-stop as we hiked down to the Chattahoochee River.  In just a second of silence, a bright red bird landed on the worn path in front of us.  As the bird flew away and the path quietly turned, I suppose I was not prepared for the beautiful […]

Kenneth

Sometimes when Matthew is driving alone, he’ll take the wrong exit to get home.  Lost in thought, he continues to make a few more wrong turns until he finds himself pulling up to our old driveway.  It’s no wonder he still misses that house.  The memories of bringing home our new baby, watching first-steps, finally decorating a house, get-togethers and reading […]
