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!

New Way

There’s a LOT I love about Arizona, but New Way Learning Academy is right up there with the beautiful mountains and Nando’s Mexican Cafe.  My first assignment with this school was several years ago when I photographed their graduation ceremony.  Since that time, I have been able to work with them several times each year.  I just love […]

Oriana is straight-up BEAUTIFUL.    Wanna’ know a secret about her?  I don’t think she even realizes just how gorgeous she is.  And really… what’s better than a beautiful girl who is equally sweet and nice?!?!  Nothing!  That’s why I simply adore Oriana!

I saw Ianna and her family walking to our meeting spot long before they ever spotted me.  As I watched them from a distance, I noticed how happy they were.  They looked like they were having a blast simply being together.  Although I already knew Ianna, I couldn’t wait to meet her family! During our session, I […]

Mike & Denise

What a couple!  Between the two of them, they are overflowing with kindness, laughs and RIDICULOUSLY good looks!  I could go on and on about both of them, but I think they’d rather me finish-up their online gallery where they can view all of their other proofs!

Stephanie & Jenny

This session was all about Stephanie & Jenny, but I really wanted Kathy to be in a few pictures with her daughters.  And although we managed to have a fun time without the girl’s brother Tim, Kathy has already said he has no excuse not to be part of the next family session!

Atlanta Center for Dental Excellence

Before leaving for Arizona, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the ATLANTA CENTER for DENTAL EXCELLENCE.  Howard Farran, DDS, MBA, MAGD (Owner, Founder and CEO of Dentaltown) and Breven Clark flew in to visit the ACDE and hear the board members (listed below) share their passion for the state-of-the-art learning center located in Suwanee, Georgia.  Frank Clayton, DDS Brenton Young, […]

Jenn has accomplished many of her goals this past year.  Since I can’t take any credit for her internship with Disney or the children’s mentoring program she works with, I can at least pretend to be somewhat involved in her most recent goal to have professional pictures taken…
