I'm so glad you are here!
My name is Cristyn and one thing you should know about me is that I unashamedly love Jesus and strive to see the best in all people! I love a good caramel vanilla latte, Chicago deep dish pizza, nature, spending time with those I love, and of course anything chocolate!
I was a high school special education teacher for 7 years before I decided to to photography full time! I have two beautiful boys who are my whole world and an amazing husband who has supported me in all I have ventured into with my business. I love all the people I get to work with, and hope I get to work with you!
Life is beautiful and so are you! This is why I am a lifestyle photographer. As a mom and wife I know how important these milestones are. I want to take these memories and make them tangible for you so that you can always have a keepsake of these milestones and precious moments.
I can't wait to meet you!

"“ We have worked with other family photographers in the past, but none made us feel as comfortable or at ease as Cristyn. She was great with our kids, easy to schedule, and really listened to what we wanted with our pictures. We could not be happier with the outcome and have so many of the pictures she took framed in our home.”"

"A perfect experience!
I cannot recommend Cristyn enough. Before our wedding, Cristyn was organized and available and directed us to think through specific shots and parts of our day. Her advance thinking was a big help in the wedding day running smoothly! Day of, Cristyn was fabulous to have around: she's high energy and quick working but she encouraged us to slow down and enjoy the celebration. She had plenty of poses ready for us (we needed the help!) and made sure not to miss any of our requested group"

"Best photographer EVER!!
Cristyn is an absolutely wonderful person and an extraordinarily talented photographer. She is detail oriented, has incredible follow up and follow through, and makes you feel amazing—even if you’re typically uncomfortable in front of the camera. She is a blast through and through and we couldn't give her a higher recommendation. All I can say is if you can have her shoot your wedding, you absolutely should!!"

"Cristyn is so incredibly talented at what she does! She came to set with props, multiple ideas for poses, and did an amazing job at helping my 6 month old daughter smile . She is the most pleasant person to work with and her fun, kind, and outgoing personality is infectious. When we received our family photos, I was in awe at its beauty. She is THE BEST! My go to photographer. I highly recommend her!!""

"Cristyn has photographed our daughter’s senior pictures last year, our son’s senior pictures this year and most recently our family picture and she is nothing short of amazing!!!! She finds the most incredible outdoor backdrops, has been extremely flexible and accommodating with our crazy schedules and has such a warm and welcoming approach to her clients. Her photos are simply stunning! Our most difficult task was finding our favorite out of the dozens she captured!! Cristyn is awesome!!"
