Nicole & Nick Sells,
My best friend talked me into doing maternity photos because while I was thrilled to be pregnant, I was not one of those women who took well to it. I was constantly uncomfortable and achy, and I felt enormous just 3 months in...the last thing I needed was pictures documenting it all (or so I thought). But I'm so glad I chose to do this! Christine loves everything about babies and pregnancy, and is so knowledgeable about the whole process that it makes the session with her valuable on multiple levels. Most of all, it is her approach--her bedside manner of listening and celebrating and encouraging--that makes her photos strong, because there is nothing in them that is contrived. She has a magic to her; she draws out and celebrates the moment before you recognize it--and then gives it to you in a photo to have forever.
I went into it this photo session with reluctance because of my own body issues; I walked away feeling beautiful, having a new-found appreciation for my pregnant body, and gorgeous photos that already have me missing being pregnant. Plus, my husband loves them! Christine's work speaks for itself--tasteful maternity photos that capture the beautiful facets of this unique season of life, one worth every photo.
--and then came baby--
Christine came to our home and took the most precious photos of our newborn baby boy. Her work perfectly captured his newborn sweetness, and all without the gimmicky stuff—just her natural style and fresh approach. And being a new mom, I didn’t even know that I wanted some of the pictures that she just knew to take—those close ups of his tiny toes, baby fuzz and perfect ears! And while she came with lots of great ideas, she was also open to our ideas and super easy to work with. She left us with exactly what we wanted--timeless pictures that really represent our little one and the special newborn season.
Kara & Sean Strozyk,
My maternity session with Christine was extremely special to me, and she knew that. From the moment my husband and I arrived, she welcomed us with her outgoing personality and her ideas of what she hoped to capture, but also keeping in mind what we wanted. We instantly felt comfortable. We did my maternity shoot at a river, and it could not have been more magical. My pregnancy was high-risk, and it was important to me that we captured the bond I had with my son, and the love my husband had for us because those photos might be the only ones we would have as a family of three. Christine went above and beyond what we were expecting and captured the most beautiful and scariest time of my life. She went above and beyond what we hoped for. Her passion for photography is definitely present in each photo. She gifted us with stunning images and a day we will never forget!
Gretchen & Dominic Bossio,
It isn't every day that you meet a gifted photographer who travels through life's milestones with you. From my graduation to my wedding to maternity photos and then the birth of each of my children (with family photos tucked in between) Christine has blessed our family with freeze frames of timeless memories I'll cherish forever. With an eye for color and design, Christine's skill and patience meld perfectly to create a fun photo shoot and priceless photographs. We're eagerly anticipating our next session!
Amanda & Matt Nelson,
We have had Christine do two different sessions for us, our engagement and maternity pictures. She was able to capture such special moments of our lives! The pictures from both sessions turned out amazing and still to this day are some of our absolute favorite shots of us!! We love you Christine and are so grateful for your patience and awesome eye for photographing others!
Devyn & Jordan Cameron,
We have had several great experiences working with Christine. She photographed our wedding reception and took our engagement photos. She was fantastic to work with on both occasions- funny and creative, with lots of ideas but very open to our ideas and always included us in the decision making. Our engagement photos were beautiful and I loved that she wasn't afraid to climb around in the woods during the shoot! The photos from our reception were incredible, she truly captured a magical night. They were classy, yet unique and very much "us". We will definitely be using Christine again to photograph our future life adventures!
Carolee and Jay Hall,
I have had the pleasure of working with LCS Photography for both professional and personal photography needs. While her professionalism and attention to detail are above comparison, it is her heart for her craft that makes her a real stand out. She knows when the lighting is just so perfect and will move subtly in these times to capture the moments you will treasure for a lifetime. In my vow renewal she struck the perfect balance of telling our story while honoring our space of celebration. In doing so, she was able to hear what I valued most in my photography needs and captured the picture of my dreams, a picture of our family from that day. It was beyond my expectations. It was stunning, a work of art, an heirloom. I am so grateful for the moment she gave me. She did this all with a subtle professionalism that honored the day, and the images she gave me are priceless.
