I feel so grateful for every client who has trusted me with their family memories. My favorite part about this business is the privilege of watching families grow and change as clients return year after year. I would love to become your lifetime photographer, too.

We have worked with Cristy on a couple of occasions, and I will continue to turn to her for future jobs without question. Her work initially impressed me because her use of light is truly inspired—her images always seem to have a magical glow that brings the PNW alive. For my daughter’s first birthday cake smash, we had to reschedule due to weather, and Cristy was super communicative to help me to make an informed decision when the storm rolled in. My daughter has been notoriously hard to work with in front of a camera, and Cristy had great tricks up her sleeve to engage with her and make her smile! My husband and I are also a little self-conscious when it comes to photography, so I was skeptical of the experience overall, but Cristy put us all at ease and somehow made us look good! Even 3 days postpartum during my son’s newborn and family shoot, she made us all feel comfortable during a potentially uncomfortable time. I only regret not booking Cristy for a maternity shoot—capturing these moments is so important, and I look back on all of her photos often. She takes so many fantastic shots that I don’t question purchasing the entire gallery. Though we’ve only spent a couple of hours with her over the years, I feel like she is a good friend. She has an air about her that is disarming and warming, and we just love her! Not only that, but she has a gift, and we are so lucky to have her here in Bellingham.

Cristy is an incredibly gifted photographer who has become our go-to for family photos. We've done three very different sessions with her (maternity, an indoor newborn/family session, and most recently an outdoor family session). Each time, Cristy has exceeded our every expectation, making each session feel fun and natural. She puts everyone at ease, and interacts so effortlessly with our children, making for natural smiles and capturing sparks of magic in their little faces.

Cristy thoughtfully plans session times and locations, and is attentive, flexible, and responsive. Her recommendations and styling suggestions are so helpful, especially in the overwhelm of late pregnancy or in sleepy newborn days.

The results are beyond our expectation each time. The quality and variety of the photos she delivers is excellent, and her style is unique, natural, and beautiful. The way she's able to capture our family's energy reflects her talent and passion for what she does.

All the stars for C Photography. I enthusiastically recommend her time and again.

We had an absolutely amazing experience with C Photography! Wow! The quality of photographs is amazing and Cristy was SO friendly and warm. Truly exceptional. We have found our photographer for years to come!


We have had the pleasure of working with Cristy multiple times and each time we’ve been amazed by the moments she has captured of our family. Cristy makes everyone feel relaxed and natural in situations that can often feel awkward and we always leave the shoots having had such fun. The pictures she has taken of us are among our favorites and will always be treasured.

What a joy it has been to work with Cristy over the past few years! She has captured so many moments and phases of our growing family. When I look at the different photographs it takes me right back to those sweet moments in time. Thank you for using your gift to keep these precious memories alive.

My husband and I finally decided to get our pictures taken professionally 4 years back to document our growing family before our son was born, and I am ever so thankful that we chose Cristy to take them. We turned to her the year after that when he was just a few months old, then at a 1.5 years old, and now again as a toddler and soon to be older brother. Every session, she has made us feel so comfortable, so joyous, and playful that the photos truly document us, as we were at each stage. Thank you Cristy for using your talents to capture those precious moments that now decorate our home.

We can’t say enough about how much we love working with Cristy. She has taken photos of our family since 2018 and always manages to capture who we are, while framing the most beautiful Pacific Northwest backgrounds. I love that our photos are a piece of art. She is always very professional and a pleasure to work with.
