Photographs are traditionally a way to preserve memories and while that is true, they are so much more than just a keepsake. As your photographer, I strive to make the images we create raw and timeless. I cherish the art of photography for its transcendent ability to show us our true selves. So often we are too caught up in the busyness of our days and we are unable to appreciate our own beauty and strength until we are able to see from a different perspective. My goal as your photographer is to create artwork that represents this season of your life, honestly portraying your story in a way that is organically, uniquely and beautifully you.
"It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”

Central Virginia Family and Birth Photographer
Hey! I’m so glad you're here. I'm Christi, a birth and family photographer living in Lynchburg, Virginia. I wasn't raised in Virginia, but this is the place my husband and our three children call home. It's where I became a graduate, a wife and above all, a mother. I'm honored to be able to serve the community that has served me so well. We're so fortunate to have an informed and supportive birth culture here and I'm truly grateful to be a small part of that.
Things you should know about me.. writing this about me page makes me feel super uncomfortable. I love chocolate, iced coffee (no matter the weather!), and anything with melty cheese and/or bacon. I have a bad habit of binge watching entire Netflix shows from start to finish when I'm stressed. I’m the proud owner of a mini van. I have a dog (Riley) and three chickens (Lil J, Midnight, and Barbie). I’m passionate about birth and desire to see all of my family, friends, and clients have an educated and empowering birth process, whatever that looks like for each birthing person and their family. I believe in equality, regardless of race, gender, or religion.
