What's in a name?
Hi there! I'm Christina. I love a good cup of coffee or chai, a great new craft beer (preferably an IPA), and hanging out with my mostly male dominated household (or my new bestie "Izzy" my Aussie and the only other estrogen in the house.) As a past fashion and accessory designer, I've done my fair share of photoshoots...only I was just in charge of wardrobe. :) I was always so excited to get the emails from the pro photographers after the shoots, knowing I was about to see my work documented so beautifully. All of the photos really tugged at my heart, and I started thinking "I wish I could do this!" Soon after, I actually bought a pro camera to take shots of my designs for my online store, and one day I just decided to start messing around with it...taking it along on hikes, capturing the dog...the kids...A LOT of the kids. Good thing my youngest guy is a total ham. Haha! From there, I've taken whatever courses I could get me hands on ...Both with real live professors and online. I am so thankful for the talented photographers (and friends) I've worked with because their work has inspired me beyond all imagination. So I guess you could say that sweetly stitching away at headbands, purses, and even wedding gowns, has led me to finding a love for capturing images of you...and so was born...Sweetly Stitched Images.

"Christina helped us through a difficult multi-generational family photo shoot. She was most patient, creative with the settings, and poses. She took full advantage of the existing light, backgrounds, and locations. The pictures have great depth, focus, and are very personal. Thank you. ~Marty P.

We've not had the best of luck with family pictures and she got some really good ones that I just love so much! She was SO awesome with our 3 crazies and their 394,852 special pose requests!
