Raleigh Newborn Photographer | Raleigh Family Photography
Christy Johnson | Photographer & Business Coach

Hi, I'm Christy. I'm a photographer, educator, and business coach. I'm also a mom, a wife, an introvert, a lifelong learner, and a lover of nature, books, animals, and children. Oh, and coconut chai tea lattes.


Over the last 12 years, I've photographed hundreds of newborns, babies, and children in the Raleigh area! Most notably, I owned Be True Baby, a boutique newborn photography studio, for six

amazing years. My work has been featured several times in Click and Professional Photographer magazines, and once on the cover of Parents magazine in France.


I've since retired from studio photography, but I still love doing outdoor family photos for returning clients and new friends. And I devote lots of time to coaching other photographers, locally and beyond, on how to operate their own passion-filled yet profitable photography businesses.

Business & marketing coaching

for photographers

It takes more than pretty pictures for a photographer to stand out and book clients in a crowded photography market. But most don't have a business or marketing background, so they'll follow and mimic what others are doing, or sadly, they'll quit altogether.


That's where I step in. With more than 12 years experience in the photography industry, including 6 years operating a busy 6-figure studio, I have the expertise to guide you in branding, marketing, pricing, and customer service so you can pursue your passion and book more clients.


What does success look like to you?
