hi, I'm christina!
I am first a Wife and Mom to 3 kids - Jake – my carefree teen boy, Emorie – my artsy, sweet girl and Kenzie – my spunky, inquisitive youngest. I am married to a dry humored, wonderful, supportive, dedicated husband and father, Tim.
I worked in corporate America for most of my life after graduating from college. Most of my years were spent as a pharmaceutical sales rep. After a life changing, horrible accident my husband was in, I decided that life should be lived with fulfillment, with compassion, with purpose. In February 2013, I resigned from my pharmaceutical career and decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my passion and dream in photography. I knew I could offer more to this world. Come join me in finding your light!
How Did I Get Here?
In high school, I was always that person making scrapbooks, framed collages of all my special teen moments. In college, I took photography classes and was able to experience the wonderful film and dark room days. My love of photography has always been a big part of my life. Back in August 2011, my husband was in a terrible car accident. We almost lost him twice. There were many days I walked around lifeless, scared, depressed wondering what future days would hold. I used my camera as pure therapy. I wanted to document everything my children were doing because their Daddy couldn’t be there. I didn’t know if these daily moments would be first or last moments that he’d see. After a year of struggles and frustrations, he made it through. We made it through. God pulled us out of this darkness slowly each day. From there, I prepared myself to switch careers with various photography classes, built my portfolio, upgraded my camera/lens, built a website, etc.
I am passion driven. I love emotion & authenticity. I look for playfulness, fun, the real you in every session. I am a mix of lifestyle and portrait photography. I quickly find your soul – your connection with life and exude it in still photos.
