Why should your family photographer make photo sessions fun and easy?

Because life moves fast and these moments are important! You don't want to risk wasting time and money only to be unhappy with the pictures. You want a family photographer who can make your family feel instantly comfortable, laugh genuinely, and show their real smiles. And you want someone who can do all of this while providing beautiful photos that you can't wait to share with friends and family.

You want me.

“This was our first time doing a professional photo session... I couldn’t have been more pleased... She made all of us feel very comfortable and did an amazing job.”


I. Book the session. Easy.

Send me a message to get started! We'll look at the calendar, discuss locations, and get it scheduled! Then I'll send my Client Experience Guide and the pre-session planning questionnaire so you know exactly what to expect.

II. Actually have fun taking the photos.

I like to focus on fun and movement so that no one gets bored and we are sure to get those genuine smiles and emotional moments.



III. Beautiful photos you can't wait to share!

You will fall in love with your gallery and walk away with beautiful pictures of your family to share online or on the walls of your home. It really is that easy!


Hi, I'm Christian!

Occasionally I'll hop in front of the camera but my favorite spot is behind the lens serving families like yours!

Let's start planning your perfect photo session!

I specialize in lifestyle family photography for Chattanooga, TN and the surrounding areas.

I want you to feel like we're family so that you are comfortable and free to be yourself in front of my camera. It would be my honor to be YOUR Chattanooga family photographer for everything from yearly family pictures to all the small moments and milestones in between. If you want beautiful family photos made fun and easy, then I'm your girl! Let's get coffee or have lunch! I can tell we're gonna be friends.







This 2023 season I'm offering 2 Fall mini session dates and 2 Christmas Tree Farm mini session dates. Get all the details and request more information from my mini sessions page!

“Christian made it so comfortable for our little one. The photos turned out amazing and I’m so happy and can’t wait to share them with our family.”

Do you like to have fun?

Good, because I do too! Are you worried about how to stand or what to do in photos? Don't be; I've got you covered! This is literally my job so I'll help you feel and look relaxed and natural in your family photos and we will even have fun while doing it.

I make jokes and use fun prompts to get the whole family laughing and participating genuinely.

I'll also keep an eye on your necklace or whether or not you forgot to take off your smartwatch so you can focus on connecting with your family and sharing moments with them.

I'll let you know exactly where to stand and what to do with your hands and then I'll ask a question or give you an activity to do so that I can get some candid and unposed photos in addition to the smiling ones. As your family photographer, I make it easy and fun so that you will forget about the camera and will focus on the memories you're making instead.

“Christian did such a great job with my family. My son is usually not a fan of getting pictures taken but she truly took the time to make him laugh and feel comfortable... We are super happy with our photos... She asked me what I was aiming for and she made it happen!”
