For as long as I can remember, I have held a fascination for photos. I love the idea that both the ordinary and extraordinary moments can be preserved.
I was born and raised in a small town in Virginia. I left my town to go to college at Christopher Newport University, and again for graduate school at George Mason University.. I returned to my home town in 2009 to put down roots. Since that time, I have gotten married, and became a mother to two precious little boys.
Having children has been a true inspiration for me artistically, and I have greatly benefitted from practicing on them regularly. They are both conditioned to be camera-ready, and as they have grown, I have worked hard at honing my skills behind the lens.
I love to capture both the big and small moments in photography, and often find that some of my favorite images are the ones that take place organically, laughter, a hug, or a private moment of contemplation can convey such great feeling and emotion.
Please feel free to take a look at some of my work and browse the site, and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!

"Christy was one of the many photographers who had contacted for my newborn son’s photo shoot, but the reason we choose her because of her wonderful previous work and professional behavior while explaining the way she is going to do the photo shoot. On the day of photo shoot, she was before time, came with all the props we asked for and started working with my new born, and immediately we saw the intense professionalism in her working style. She exactly knew what was she doing."

"Christy did an excellent job with our engagement photos. She recommended the perfect place and was even able to work with the cloudy overcast that happened that day. We are so pleased with our pictures and would highly recommend her for ANY occasion."
