Christina specializes in beauty, product and lifestyle photography but also enjoys photographing homes and interiors for designers and real estate companies as well as photographing families and portraits.
I love taking photos and showing them to clients and seeing their face light up. Photography is such a special art. It is so much more personal that any other art form. You are capturing moments in a persons life that they will have forever and giving them life through the vivid colors and contrast in each image you take. Each image illustrates a memory for a family or a vision a client has for their brand. Photography can be so challenging at times, but the reward is so vast and always there in the end.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many shoots for beauty brands taking on the creative direction as well as the art direction for each shoot. I love building a full campaign for clients and brainstorming creatively for each shoot. It gives my work more meaning rather than having clients arrive with their products and me only focusing on the technical parts of the shoot like lighting. I enjoy the entire creative process that goes with a photo shoot instead of just clicking the shutter.
