So, Let me introduce myself, my name is Christy and I am a mom to three beautiful kids, Stephen (T1), Lauren (T2) and Leah (T3). I am married to my best friend, Steve. We live in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. We are far enough from the city to be considered the “country” but with in an hour to all that Chicago has to offer.
My photography journey began 7 years ago when my son was born. I wanted to capture every milestone of his life. The only problem was I was going through a roll of film, if not more, a day. Needless to say, processing all that film was getting a bit expensive. So one day I decided to go out and purchase a brand new digital camera. It wasn’t anything special, but it allowed me to take as many pictures as I wanted.
Fast forward 4 cameras and add 2 more kids. Here I am today! I still have that passion for photography. I actually think it’s stronger today than it was 7 years ago. I am constantly learning new techniques so that I can continue to create beautiful images. I love that photography can capture time. It is those milestones, a newborn, a child’s 1st year, a family portrait, that I wish to capture for you.
