Hi, I'm Christy, a wife and mom of two. I'm a heart-centered photographer creating simple, organic, timeless portraits for your home that show your child just how fiercely they are loved.

Over the last 13 years, I've photographed hundreds of newborns, babies, and children in the Raleigh area! My work has been featured several times in Click and Professional Photographer magazines, and once on the cover of Parents magazine in France.

I also love to devote time to coaching other photographers, locally and beyond, on how to operate their own passion-filled yet profitable photography businesses.

I specialize in newborn and baby's first year photography. my clients call me "the baby whisperer."

"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 has an amazing eye for photography and her pictures are beautiful and organic. She is so wonderful with babies and children and she captures the most perfect moments each time we have used her. Not only do you get gorgeous photos from Christy but her customer service is excellent. I would highly recommend Christy Johnson Photography to anyone looking to capture those precious moments of their little ones.


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!
