I’m Christina: a 25butlooksabout14 year-old, awkward millennial, who fits the stigma of my generation by always taking “too-many pictures”.
I first fell in love with being an artist with my passion for dance. I got my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Theatre & Dance from the University of Memphis, and while studying movement in college, I discovered a new-found love for stillness through photography.
“Photography fragments time; a single image is a vision of one moment torn from its context."
- William A. Ewing
I pride myself on being a versatile photographer, so I don’t claim to be focused on only one niche of photography, but am drawn to capturing candid, honest moments.
I like to describe my photography as “motion & emotion”. I truly believe that movement is a universally understood language, and as long as you can connect to yourself and the moment you’re living in, I can capture it!
this is me:
some fun-facts about me:
I have two cats- Ollivander & Batman- and a dog- Nebraska Jones- all of whom I rescued and love more than anything else in the world! (and coincidentally are all black & white, so they match!)
I binge-watch way too much Netflix and have an on-going rotation of The Office, Parks & Rec, Friends, It’s Always Sunny, and 30 Rock.
I’m a forreal choco-holic and might die if I don’t have some form of chocolate once a day.
Chai-Tea Lattes with almond milk are where its at.
Music is a driving force in my life, so please don’t be surprised when I bring my awesome playlist of a bazillion different genres out at your session.
I love puns and will laugh at any dad-joke.
I’m Harry Potter fanatic, and have won awards for my HP knowledge such as AR champion of the 3rd Grade, and first place at Trivia. (I’m a Ravenclaw, obviously…)
I’ve been with my partner, Matt (who is a musician), for 6.5 years and we’re probably the most married but not married couple you will ever meet.
I’m only 5’1, so if you’re tall be prepared for me to balance on crazy things to get the best shot of you!
I currently have 3 tattoos- two are song lyrics by the great Bon Iver and Manchester Orchestra, and the other one is a grouping of stars on my shoulder.
I choreographed and danced in Julien Baker’s “Appointments” music video!
I started photography as activities editor for the yearbook in high school, and fell in love with capturing memories for others to share, but developed most of my camera skills and knowledge from film & video class, even though I prefer capturing still images over videos!
