About   Christy

hey friend!

I'm Christy. 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 beat 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 Raleigh and Triangle area families, just like yours, who are sentimental about capturing all the fleeting moments and  milestones of their growing families.

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.

i'm so glad you are here!

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.

BEAUTIFUL LIGHT

With two kids 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 and cook dinner together.

FAMILY TIME

Traveling has been limited recently with the pandemic and chemo, but we love to explore new places! Of course I always have my camera in hand - I find myself so inspired by landscapes and street scenes!

THE OUTDOORS & TRAVELING

I love to read, but find I have to make time for it every week. These days, I'm into thrillers that have quick pacing to keep me interested and coming back for more! I also love to read business books as well.
