Meet the Photographer


I am a photojournalist at heart. My photographs convey my passion for stories. For more than 23 years, I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to call my work my passion.


We all have a story, every person, every family. Every child I have the privilege to photograph is uniquely made. Every couple I work with has a love story that deserves to be told. Who you are in your rawest state is infinitely more interesting and beautiful than you will ever know. I want your images to reflect the most authentic you so that in years to come, when you revisit your story, it will take you home.


I love to seek out the moments in-between. Life is what happens in those big moments. It is the subtle glances from across the room, the laughter emerging from the corners of a child’s mouth, the way a parent’s eyes fill with tears of joy as they listen and watch their child saying their wedding vows. It is in those moments that life is abundant and genuine. These are the moments my photography captures.


I find myself continually chasing the light to satisfy my need to grow as a professional photographer and storyteller. The light I see fuels these passions. During our session, we will work together to catch this light and preserve it for generations to come.

What Clients Are Saying

 "Cristie is so gifted at making us feel comfortable enough to be ourselves. That one moment we will look back on for years to come and smile as we remember; THAT was a perfect moment. And I’m so glad someone was there to capture it for me."
