Hello!

IMG_09_editHello there! I’m Christen, and I’m so glad you’re here.

Let’s start with the basics. I am a believer, wife, mother to our two sweet boys, and a photographer and designer. I love ice cream, Elvis, having dance parties with my toddler, and cooking while never actually following a recipe. When I was fifteen, I saw the movie Step Mom and wanted to be just like Julia Roberts (she played a photographer) so I signed up for Photography in 10th grade. That’s when I fell in love with the camera and the darkroom. In college, while I studied Photography and Art Education, I became obsessed with typography, which led my new(er) love of design.

For the past few years, I have taken on design, calligraphy, and photography jobs as they have come to me. People have told me, “you should really start a business!” but I was always too scared or thought I wouldn’t be able to make it happen. Well, this year I was blessed to have three wedding photography jobs literally just fall in my lap. So, after three years as a stay-at-home-mom, I thought, “Hey, maybe now is the time!”

Here I will be sharing my work with you, both current and past. I hope to see you here again soon!
