a little love from our clients!!
“Christina – I frequently find myself looking at the beautiful photographs you took of my daughter Violet over eight months ago. Every time I look at them, I am profoundly moved. What amazes me is your gift and skill at capturing Violet’s soul in your photos. Her personality leaps out. The composition is so creative, yet natural, and fits her perfectly. I also want you to know that my wife thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being with you in your studio – very professional, yet at the same time so friendly, kind and relaxing. She and Violet had fun. Thank you SO much! We will be back.” Tim Lees
“Natalie – Can I use one of the photos of him as my Facebook picture? I think John would wallpaper our house with this picture if it was possible.” – C.M.

“The kids adore Christina. She has helped us capture moments outside and has made it fun for the boys.The kids are having a ball and are very relaxed. She has captured some fabulous photos. We will not go back to a studio.” – The Grantz Family

“Christina, I love your work, you are a fabulous photographer. I have gotten more compliments on the pictures you took of my kids than on any other pictures we’ve ever had taken! That includes compliments from people I don’t even know….my sister called me from work the other day asking for your website because a coworker of hers saw the pictures of Teddy & Ruthie on her desk and loved them. Both of my sister-in-laws wish they lived closer so that you could take pictures of their kids (we’re still talking about trying to do a giant family session with you if we are all together at the same time, but just haven’t figured out when that will be). Most of all, I appreciate how unique all of your pictures are. I never feel like I see the same pose over and over again in your pictures; you focus on capturing the child’s personality as opposed to a prop or a ”say cheese” smile. You are great at what you do! I recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to have their children’s portraits taken! ” – Sincerely, Shelly Bellrichard
“Love these so much! You are so very talented, Natalie. Thank you for capturing her personality so beautifully.” – A.P.
“It is amazing what Christina is able to capture. Her pictures tell a story. I have three very busy, active boys. The first time I brought them in, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Christina was calm, patient, and made the session fun for my boys. Although they were climbing on chairs, jumping around the studio, Christina never missed a beat. The pictures reflect their personalities and are a joy to look at. Christina also photographed my 10 day old baby. It was a wonderful experience. She was so calm, and the studio was so serene. I was able to nurse my son when needed, and even when he was a little bit fussy, Christina sat and waited patiently for him to calm down, never rushing us. Needless to say, the pictures are beautiful, and I receive compliments on them all the time. I am looking forward to our upcoming photo shoot in November!” – Molly Strand
“You are so talented Natalie! The boys were not in the best of moods and the pictures look great. Looking forward to having you do more photos next year!!!” – S.J.

She possesses the ability to able to capture raw emotion in her photographs and the pure innocence of a child. She works with you to ensure you will get exactly what you are looking for. We have been thrilled with our experiences with Christina, and our photographs have beyond exceeded our expectations. She’s stuck with us, because we wouldn’t go anywhere else! ” – Heather & Mark Robison
“Oh my word! What an amazing job you did on some of these photos Natalie! We LOVE them! You captured Jack in some of his purest moments.” – J.S.
“We had such a great experience with chrissie marie photography in April 2009. My husband, Nolan and I met with Christina at her studio in Hopkins. The studio was spacious and she had it nice and warm for Nolan. She was so patient and gentle with him. The shots she captured are priceless. I was so excited to get my photos and CD back that I had to email her website to family/friends immediately so they could see the great pictures. No detail was left untouched and the expressions she got were awesome. Christina’s eye for photography is 5 stars. We look forwarding to having her take more pictures of Nolan in December. “ – Jill Zimmerman Roddy
“Oh my God Natalie. I love those pictures. What a fantastic job…seriously…you’re so talented…but I am sure you have heard that before. Don’t even know what to write or say, and for me that is saying something. I am speechless. I may pick you up and hug you the next time I see you. WATCH OUT!!!” – J.W.z
“Christina has been taking my children’s photos for almost 3 years. Each time we have a session with Christina, my two children are crazy wild, uncooperative and chaotic. Somehow she captures great photos and I am totally impressed. Christina has a real talent! She has the ability to capture a child’s personality, innocense, and sweetness in the middle of all the chaos. She is great! We have been so happy with her.” – Sheila R.
