Let me introduce myself. I’m Christy and I live, work, play and take pictures in the San Francisco Bay Area…mostly south bay, if you want to be specific. This includes executive head shots, corporate events, architectural, families and high school seniors. I love working with clients and will travel all over the San Francisco Bay Area.
I was raised in Fremont…went to Chico State for college, (which definitely helped develop my laid back attitude) then moved back to the bay area. I am creative, by nature. I worked as an interior designer for 14 years which morphed into my own photography business. I enjoy being active and have a lot of energy…I like playing cards, going to Tahoe, camping, and cooking (not every night though!) That is not all there is to me, there is plenty more, but in a nutshell, I like to be active and I like to create. I am married to a very supportive husband (who ironically does not like to have his picture taken) and have two wonderfully active kids.
Head shots and corporate events have become a large part of my business. Everyone seems to need a profile picture and I am really good at getting my clients to relax so we get a natural and professional portrait (if I do say so myself.) Do you need images for your website? Let me capture your unique brand. Are you having a company event that you need pictures of? I will record your corporate milestones.
I enjoy children/family photography because I like the challenge of capturing the essence of each family. A photographer needs to be spontaneous with kids because you never know what they will do. You also have to be patient with a quick trigger finger on your camera to capture just the right moment. I will follow them around and get that magical shot you want. Whether it’s little kids or high school seniors, they all have a unique story and I love capturing it.
The Photo Session
We do the photo session “on location” as I like to say. Outdoor photo sessions gives us a place to explore and be spontaneous, which sets up wonderful opportunities to capture great photos. I will work with you to select a location for the photo shoot, I have found a few special locations over the years.
Each session lasts 1-2 hours. Be warned-I take A LOT of pictures during the photo shoot. I figure that if you are going to make the effort of coordinating outfits, getting your family dressed and at the location (which in itself can be stressful!) then I want to make sure that I get the perfect shot of you and your family. But don’t worry, I make it fun and as relaxing as possible. So, isn’t it time to record the moment? Time doesn’t stop and the kids keep growing. They will never be a young as they are right now.
Let’s schedule a session-you won’t regret it. Contact me and we can get started on your very own photo session.
