Christine's Approach to Photographing Children in her Own Words:
"As a mother of two, it is my joy and my passion to photograph children. I love their natural curiosity, their innocence and spontaneity. Capturing these wonderful qualities in photographs is what makes my job so rewarding. My desire as a child portrait photographer is to capture the essence of your child. Whether it's a silly giggle or a thoughtful stare, I want to catch them being themselves. Time passes so quickly and before we know it our babies have grown on to the next stage. I want to give you a lasting memory of your child, by catching true moments in time. My approach is fun and relaxed, so my camera can capture your child being just who they are."
Christine's passion for photography began while she was traveling Europe. Visually, she was awe-struck and wanted to be sure to remember it all, but from her own point of view. As a result, she spent three wonderful years in Barcelona studying photography.
She met her husband years later in New York, where they were both working in the film industry. After having kids, Christine couldn't be away from them for a typical 12 hour film day. She wanted to raise her children yet continue her career. Children's portrait photography was a natural progression.
"I had no idea how much love I had inside of me, until I had my children," says Christine. "It's what I try to capture in my portraits - a love and reverence for this special stage of life called childhood. Starting a family is such an incredible time of life and I am thrilled every time I have the privilege of documenting it for someone - from the joy of holding your newborn, to the endearing preschool ages, to the we-can-rule-the-world attitude of pre-teens. It's all so amazing and passes by in a blink. I think it's important to have it documented so you can look back and never forget."
