This was the best out of town photography experience we’ve ever had! We have a very big family with a variety of ages, and sometimes it’s difficult to get kids, and even older kids ready to be still for one second to take a photo… Christine did an amazing job with our crew! She knew each one of their names, was very quick (as we were fighting the minutes of the remaining sun) She was vibrant and personable herself, which fits right with our big family!! BEST EVER Mountain shots and tons to choose from!!

Christine was an incredible photographer for my baby announcements. I am an awkward person when it comes to taking photos and I don’t photo well and she put everything at ease. She made the session extremely fun and enjoyable. She responded to the request the same day and was on time for the meeting of the photos. She took her time to make sure the poses were perfect as well as the lighting and background. She was an absolute blast to work with. I highly recommend her!

Christine is a professional, she should be taking photo shoots of things better than me! She made me look better than I actually am, while not falsifying the photos, which I am grateful for. Highly recommended!

Christine was absolutely amazing! We needed a last minute photographer to capture our family of 15 & she was quick to respond, easy to work with & definitely knows what she’s doing. We saved her information because we can’t wait to use her again in the future! She knew exactly where to go for our “vibe”, how to pose us & how to make us feel comfortable & relaxed. 10/10 would recommend.

We were visiting Arizona from out of state and hired Christine to take our extended family photos. Christine did an amazing job! She is great with communication, she had suggestions on where to take the photos and what color clothing would best fit the Arizona landscape. Christine is very personable, the photo shoot was a lot of fun and the pictures turned out so good! We could not have been happier. I would highly recommend!
