What to Expect


If you’ve never hired a professional photographer before, the whole process could feel a little intimidating.

That’s where I come in! I’m always here to answer your questions – large or small – so that you walk into your session fully confident and excited.

Click through these slides to learn about the planning process, what the session will look like, and when you can expect to see your beautiful memories.

First Steps


After receiving your initial inqury, I work with you to find the best date and time of day for your experience. Once those details are hammered out, we lock your session in place with a portrait agreement and retainer.

In the time left before your session date, I’m there to answer any questions you may have about styling or custom photo requests!

The Session


Let’s get the party started! Throughout the session, I’m carefully selecting the best angles and spots on the location in order to provide you with a variety of images in your final gallery. I also give plenty of directions on how to stand and where to place your hands. No stress if you are a brand new model!



The moment you’ve been waiting for! You’ve received the email announcing your online gallery is ready and you click to view.

For those who have purchased The Deluxe package, now is the time to view and download your beautiful memories in all of their magical glory. These photos are ready within 2 weeks of your session date.

For those who purchased The Classic or The Mini, your online gallery includes all available images. You then select the number of photos included in your package, and then I will have the retouched images delivered to you within 2 weeks of your final selection.

Timeless Keepsakes


Every online gallery includes the option to easily turn your memories into gorgeous wall art. When you order through the gallery, not only are you investing in professional printing quality and material, but you will also be receiving the most color accurate product possible as my editing screen is calibrated with my professional distributor.

"She captured some special photos that my husband and I will cherish forever."

My family of 3 had a really great experience working with Christine for our fall mini session! Her work is beautiful and she captured some special photos of my 3 month old son that my husband and I will cherish forever. Christine was even prepared for littles ones and had a fun lady bug toy to go around her camera lens which I think helped get my son’s attention for some pictures. We would definitely like to work with her again and will be recommending to friends!

"I appreciated her direction and attention to detail."

I worked with Christine for our maternity + Christmas card photos — she’s was fabulous! Super responsive, timely, and worked fast onsite! I appreciated her direction and attention to detail. When she delivered the photos, we were both so excited! They were all so beautifully captured. We would recommend Christine to anyone! Hope to work with her again in the future.

"Her great gift as a photographer is making you feel comfortable in your own skin."

Christine has done some professional photo shoots for me and taken plenty of casual photos as well! Her great gift as a photographer is making you feel comfortable in your own skin. I’m not natural at posing for the camera, but she is so supportive and excited, it’s easy to lighten up and feel confident! Her pictures are amazing and they’re the only ones I use for professional headshots and resumes.
