Portfolio & Info



Nervous about being in front of the camera? I know exactly how you feel. When you step in front of my lens, I will guide you exactly on how to stand and where to place your hands.


Mixing candids and posed shots, you’ll receive a variety of images that will stand the test of time.


Ever scroll through someone’s Instagram feed and instantly identify the 2009 photos because of their filter? With Captured! photos, you’ll receive true-color memories that you’ll be proud to post this year and in 2040!


As a mother myself, I truly understand the potential stress walking into a family photography session.

What if my kid has a meltdown? What if my husband just wants to be done and go home? What if that darn pimple won’t go away in time?

My promise to you is to treat your family like my own. I will work as hard as I possibly can to keep everyone happy, work quickly and efficiently, get at least one shot where EVERYONE is looking AND smiling for the camera, and capture the candid moments that you want to remember when those tiny shoes and cute bows no longer fit. While editing, I will also remove any of those undesired blemishes so that your final product is print-worthy.

I will work as hard and long as I have to in order to ensure you absolutely love the memories I’m capturing for your family.

"She got all of them smiling and having a good time."

I am so happy we booked our session with Christine! I have been reluctant to do professional photos with young kids given how unpredictable attitudes can be for new experiences. But Christine was so good with them! She got all of them smiling and having a good time. Our pictures turned out wonderfully, and I have already recommended her to several friends.

"In all honesty, I can't think of one thing I would ask to be changed."

My favorite part of the session was Christine’s willingness to spend time with my family. I knew the photos would be great but they surpassed my expectations. Having eleven people in our family, it takes a lot of patience to deal with us and our goofy personalities. Christine did a fabulous job and I look forward to hiring her again and again! In all honesty, I can’t think of one thing I would ask to be changed.

"The pictures she captured were very 'us'."

I loved how comfortable Christine made us feel in front of the camera! Neither my husband or I consider ourselves to be models by any means…but Christine made us comfortable and we we felt that the pictures she captured were very “us” and reflected the happiness and joy of our day.
