Artistic, gifted, exceptional, sensitive, relational, patient, fun —just some of the words to describe Christen’s photography and the lovely person that she is! Our family of 8 spent a morning on the beach with her, and we now cherish all our photos that captured that beautiful summer morning. If you are thinking of a session with her for your family, don’t hesitate!! Just do it! ~ Kathy N.
Christen has the ability of beautifully capturing who we are as a family. The sessions are fun, playful and laid back which helps the kids be themselves and allows them to be photographed naturally. She has such a kind and giving heart, and we love working with her! ~ Julie M.
Even though our kids were uncooperative, she somehow got some really beautiful pictures of our family. Miracle worker!

We loved having our family photos taken by Christen! She spent time getting to know us and our desires for the photo shoot, in order to give us a personalized experience. She struck a great balance between planning and spontaneity to make the shoot go well. We felt comfortable, understood, and valued by the whole experience. The finished product was special and well worth it! We will definitely have our family photos taken by Christen every year. ~ Noel S.
Christen has done an amazing job over the years of capturing our family. We LOVE having Christen take our picture. She does an excellent job of capturing who we are as a family, which is no small feat since there are 11 of us! ~ Erika H.
Christen is a talented photographer and truly great to work with. She loves people, and that comes through in her work.

My husband and I hired Christen to photograph us for our 6 year wedding anniversary. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with her. Both the experience itself (which felt like a romantic and fun date!) and the photos were simply wonderful. Christen really captured “us” in an uncanny way. One of the photos she took which hangs prominently on our wall – I often point it out to visitors because it’s the perfect metaphor for our relationship. I’m not sure how she captured it so perfectly in a single photo, but there it is. The quality of the photos is gorgeous, so vivid, colorful, playful and beautiful. They’re a lifelong treasure. If you’re thinking of booking her for any occasion at all, do! You’ll be so glad you did. ~ Corinne B.
Christen has a talent and giftedness for capturing the beauty of the moment and the essence of the people/family in her pictures, which speaks to her ability to engage the people being photographed. Her candid shots of our family remain in prominent and fixed places in our home even though we have more recent pictures to replace them. The pictures from the candid sessions that we have had are treasures to our family and I look forward to having many more of these types of shots in our home in the years to come. ~ Shanna C.
Christen is an exceptional photographer and person. Working with her was an enjoyable experience and we loved the end result. I highly recommend her! ~ Andrew L.
Christen is professional and personal. She takes pride and joy in her art and she has near boundless warmth to draw out the best in her subjects. We loved working with her for our family portraits and we’re still in love with the photos after several years. I recommend her to anyone for any type of work! ~ Dan C.
Christen did an outdoor family session for our family of 10, ranging from age 2 to 93. She was amazing at engaging all of us, even 3 young kids, and her style brought out genuine smiles, and we all looked very relaxed in our photos. She was confident in her own ideas for our session but also very open to our requests. I knew Christen from years ago but walked away from the session with a new appreciation for the true gift she has at bringing out the best in people and then capturing it. We are beyond happy with the photographs and we look forward to hiring her again! ~ Amy D.
My family had the pleasure of spending a morning with Christen and we are in LOVE with the results! My 5 year old and 1 year old were not very compliant at first (and are painfully shy) and yet she helped my kids feel comfortable and silly. Christen captured my son’s true goofy personality as well as some beautiful pictures of our whole family that we will love to remember this special season of life by♥ ~ Anna D.
Christen recently photographed our family following the adoption of our newest daughters, and we were so blessed by her talent, skill, and kind heart! These were the best quality photos we’ve had taken of our family in the past 8 years of yearly family photos. Beautiful! We had 6 squirmy, wiggly, opinionated little kids dressed up in special clothes which is not necessarily an easy situation for parents or photographer to micromanage. I know that as a parent, it is easy to get stressed and rushed during a photo shoot. But Christen was super chill and efficient, helping us draw certain kids out of their bouts of stubbornness and she captured a variety of very natural, truly joyous memories for us. Certainly pleased with the results! I highly recommend Christen to you if you are looking for a quality, professional, personable experience! ~Anna K.
