Lover of coconut chai lattes, married to Mike, and mom of two kids, three cats and a German Shepherd who never leaves my side. I've recently beaten leukemia and am back to work with a lot of excitement but a lot less hair!

I opened my photography business in 2009, and have served hundreds of happy Triangle area families, just like yours, who are sentimental about capturing all the fleeting moments and milestones of their growing families.

I've been awarded the Master Newborn Photographer certification by the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. Many clients refer to me as the “baby whisperer!” I have won several awards for my work, and my images have been published in a variety of places, including Professional Photographer magazine and even once on the cover of Parents France (ooo, la, la!) I also have a 5-star rating from clients I’ve worked with over the years.

From your first inquiry to the delivery of your beautiful artwork, you'll find my customer service and attention to detail to serve you well throughout our experience together.

Say Hello »

The word photography comes from the Greek for painting with light, and I love to approach my work in that manner. I'm so inspired by beautiful light, honest emotion, and the tiniest of details.


With two teenagers involved in lots of activities, I'm on the road a lot! Luckily, car chats are some of the best ways to stay up to date with all their goings-on. We also try to have regular movie nights, cook dinner together, and get away when we can.


My Favorite Things

My husband and I were on the fence about maternity photos but people kept telling us we might regret not having those memories captured so we decided to take the plunge...and WOW! We are so glad we did. Not only did we book her for maternity, but after seeing her work and having such an excellent experience, we decided to book newborn, 6mo, and 12mo session, too! I am pretty positive that we now have a photographer for the duration. Best money we ever spent.



Christy has a very easy way with children and babies, and her aesthetic is elegant and soft. Her customer service and communication with clients is always personalized and kind. I would highly recommend her and the studio for babies and family photography.



Christy epitomizes what a newborn/family photographer should be. She is easygoing, adaptable, energetic, and most importantly, a pure joy to work with. Additionally, the quality of products that Christy offers are phenomenal, from small prints to large canvases. I highly recommend Christy!
