Meet Christy

Hello! I'm Christy! I'm a published greater Orlando area photographer specializing in custom portraiture of preteens, women, and children.

A little bit about me

I search for the simple joys in everyday moments. I am a chaser of dreams and beautiful light.  I put all my energy, heart, and soul into every session. I want to empower women to see themselves the way others see them. 

I am a mom of two tiny humans and one sweet pup. A Pittsburgh native who moved to Florida for warm weather and sunshine with no plans to leave. I have a soft spot for shelter dogs and have a heart that's ready to give.

Three things I love: board games, dirty chai lattes, my daughter's goofy grin.

My Journey

When I first picked up a camera in middle school, I didn't know where it was going to take me. I documented everything I could--photos of friends, snapshots from vacation, and the beauty that surrounded me. When I got my first professional camera many years later, I began to create portraits of my family and friends instead of just snapshots. While completing my Bachelor's Degree in Photography, I didn't quite know how much I would fall in love with the beauty of a great portrait. The way someone's eyes light up when they smile. The scrunched noses and wide mouthed laughs never fail to make me smile. Every wrinkle, scar, and freckle is a story to be told.


It’s been 12 years since I began my journey as a professional photographer, and I have been running my business full time since 2013.  My goal is to empower and support women of all ages and to create long lasting portraits to be shared for generations to come. I love seeing my clients' faces when they see their photographs for the first time and riding along on the emotional journey with them.
