My passion for photography developed at a young age. Truthfully, I believe it runs in my veins. My mother, grandfather, and great-grandfather were driven by all forms of art. My mom is a wonderful artist and crafts her own jewelry. My maternal grandfather was a brilliant painter, and my maternal great-grandfather was a passionate glass blower and cherished his camera dearly. Capturing beautiful memories runs deep in my family and soul. 

Beautiful imagery stems from an organic, documentary, and journalistic standpoint. I focus on the connection of your family + tell your story from an emotional, raw viewpoint. Motherhood can be challenging, and often, mamas don’t get in the camera enough. I will make my mothers feel empowered, goddess-like, and fierce. It’s unbelievably important to me that I tell your family’s story just as you are. Not only do I strive to make you fall in love with your family’s art, but I also want you to print and view your cherished memories for many years to come.

My family is pretty darn amazing. I love my kids and husband to the moon and back. Gia is my oldest child and extremely talented when it comes to art. She’s my stubborn one but also loves deeply. Charlie is my wild middle child and fears nothing. She is also immensely kind and a little mama at heart. Seriously, I think she is going to have 8 kids one day, and she loves approaching moms and asking if she can pet their baby (LOL). And Dominic is my youngest and, by far, most sensitive sweet child. He is also a total boy and loves everything car and super hero related. I was so darn happy when I finally got my boy!

Besides my family, traveling is by far my FAVORITE thing—ever. I always have a trip planned. It gives me something to look forward to and fuels me with so much excitement. I have traveled to many amazing places, but my faves are Turkey, Italy, New Orleans, and Costa Rica. My bucket list destinations are Thailand, basically all of Europe, Japan, and the East Coast during the peak of fall foliage (I am fall obsessed)!

I am very passionate about health and living my best life. I love learning about herbs and natural remedies! A good farmer’s market is my jam. I believe great mental health is the foundation to a healthy lifestyle. I also believe our family ended up in the mountains because nature speaks to my soul and allows me to slow down.

Why invest in photography
 & artwork? 

Quality matters.
You matter.
Your family matters.
So let's document your family the right way and create breathtaking imagery together. 

Christina created some beautiful lasting memories for my family and myself. Her eye for detail and capturing the essence of a moment is incredible. As soon as I saw her work on social media I knew I needed to book her for our family photos. The end result was far more than I had imagined. Our shoot consisted of extended family and young children. Even with all of the moving parts she worked effortlessly and was so patient and kind with all of us. It was more than just showing up to have your picture taken she really took the time to make the photo shoot special. I’m very thankful and recommend her to anyone looking to take beautiful photos to look back on.

We were lucky enough to just do our second family session with Christina and absolutely loved everything about our time with her. She is so easy to work with, she makes it fun for the kids, makes everyone feel so comfortable and then captures pure magic. She has captured some of my very favorite photos of my family. I honestly can not wait to book with Christina again! 10/10 recommend using Christina

Christina was a dream to work with. She found the most perfect location for us, and she was a patient and kind with our toddler for our family photoshoot. She helped me from the start to choose outfits for our family and brought beautiful gowns for me to wear. We couldn’t be happier with the way she told our family’s story through her art and cannot wait to hang them in our home!
