HI, I'M CHRISTY.  When I was a little girl, my first camera was a Kodak Pocket Instamatic camera that used the 110 film.  (I'm pretty sure I still have a few negatives and photos from the fourth grade.) My sweet mother would save the film cartridges and mail them to be developed, always making sure to check the "double negatives" box. Receiving the new pictures felt like Christmas morning.  As a teenager, my parents took me to K-Mart where I picked out a Fujifilm 35mm; I took it everywhere.  It was official—I had the bug.  I was always taking pictures of pretty things and of things I shouldn't.  The worst photo I took as an evil teenager was when my sister was in the "ladies room."  I pushed the door open, took the shot, and ran!  (Yes, I still have it and often use it as blackmail.  The look on her face was priceless!)

Many cameras later, I grudgingly switched from film to digital; I'm stubborn like that.  However, I've never looked back.  The digital age is amazing and there is no limit to my creativity.  The majority of my training I received while living in the colorful state of Colorado.  I worked for a company which gave me the opportunity to hone my skills in portraiture.  It was an honor to work with such a brilliant group of photographers.  My other credentials consist of a few photography courses taken at a community college.  These courses taught me the basics and film development.  In this business there is always something new to learn.  My favorite part is meeting people and learning about their life through my lens.  We get so busy with our everyday lives that we forget just how important family portraits really are.   Unfortunately, we cannot go back in time but we can document that moment you will cherish forever.
