Based in Howard County, Maryland, Christina Tundo Photography serves all the definitions of family within the DMV area, preserving the authentic moments, both big and small, that you want to hold onto forever.
I’m SO excited to share that it has been five years since I took the leap and started my photography business. These last five years have been incredible – lots of fun, not always easy, but always worth it. In the last five years, I’ve photographed 145 families and I proudly wear my badge of “photographer for life” for many of them as repeat clients. It’s truly been an honor and I couldn’t have made it these last 5 years without any of you!
According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 50% of businesses have failed by year five. If you know me, you know that I like to beat statistics. When I was in college I was told that most spring transfers are not successful going in and I did even better in college than high school. When I moved counties in teaching, I was one of 2% of the 7,000 applicants that got the job. Don’t let a statistic scare you from pursuing your dreams. Take the risk and do it!
When I look back at the last 5 years, I know that I truly couldn’t do this alone. First and foremost, thank you to each and every one of you who has trusted me to capture your special moments. I want to say thank you to two other people too:
To Rocco: Thank you for pushing me to do this. Without you, I wouldn’t be here. (If you want to read more about my journey to starting this business check out my post here!). And…
To Christina’s Click: Thank you for opening up your lives and homes to let me in. Thank you for your vulnerability and warm hearts. Thank you for sharing my name to friends and on social media so that other amazing families can find me. Thank you for cheering me on over the years. Thank you to repeat clients for growing with me. Thank you for all the replies to images and galleries with too many exclamation marks. I am so lucky to get to work with all of you.
I’m so overwhelmed that I’m here, celebrating 5 years. Thank you for taking a moment to share my joy and this success. It means the world to me! Happy 5 years, Christina Tundo Photography!!
