Chrissy is such a job to work with! From initial emails, to in-person meetings, prep for our engagement photos, the session itself, and gallery delivery she has made this processes smooth, seamless, and filled with joy. – Bethany

Photographer | Mama | Educator

As mama to two little humans, I understand the struggles of parenting and just general adulting. Some days we feel like we are nailing it and other days it’s a total fail. 

But one thing you can never fail at is being photographed. There is not one thing you can do that will mess up your session. Even chaos contains beauty.

Oh, did I mention I’m also a teacher? 

Any time I’m not photographing clients or spending time with my family, I’m teaching in my second-grade classroom. 

 As an early childhood educator, I understand the importance of recognizing individuality in children and creating an accommodating experience that will let their true personality shine.

Your Photographer for Life

My goal for every session is for you to feel comfortable enough to invite me to be part of your family (even if I’m the crazy aunt). While I’m partially joking, the truth is this: 

I will never stop feeling honored that I get to know my clients at such a personal level that they welcome me into their lives.

Your kids grow up in front of my camera. Your love evolves right before my lens. 

And through it all, I promise to...

Christina had the hardest job of taking shots of another photographer's children. She kept my kids engaged and helped create authentic photos that I will treasure forever. I was impressed with her ability to calm the chaos. – Tj
