Hello! My name is Chrissy and I'm a San Diego family photographer. I am a sentimental mama who cherishes the little things. I'm the type to save every single birthday card ever given to me, every drawing my beautiful girls have ever created, and every wilted flower picked just for me. I keep memories preserved in photographs and scrapbooks. I stay up late editing images; my own and client's of course. I love to feel the way I felt the very moment I snapped the photo.

Speaking of family, I have been married to my husband since August 2007, and together we have two blonde-hair, blue-eyed girls. We met through a friend, got engaged in a month, married after 364 days, and here we are...parents! Our girls have really added more to our lives than we could have ever imagined. And I cannot forget about our first-born, Sadie. She is our 10-year old pitbull and probably the greatest dog on planet Earth, no joke. Together, we love camping in the desert, off-roading, weekday beach trips, BBQs, and game night! If you follow me on facebook or instagram, you will get to know us more through our hashtag #wearethewalthers!

As a photographer, there are two ways I can describe my work: authentic connection and beautiful light. In my images, you will often see the essence of childhood and parenthood, connection between my subjects, and beautiful light illuminating an equally beautiful setting. I have often heard clients say they thought they wanted the perfectly posed shots yet when they received their galleries, they loved the candid shots more. I love a great portrait, don't get me wrong, I just feel your session is far more important to stop there. I am documenting you and your family right now. Childhood lasts only a short while. There isn't a time where we are more filled with awe and wonder at the world around us. There isn't a time where popping bubbles or playing tag is more exciting. There isn't a time where we look to mom or dad for a hug or a loving kiss on a boo-boo more. All of life's moments, big and small, deserve to be remembered forever. My hope it that I will be the one to do that for your family too.

Thank you for stopping by!

Your friend, Chrissy.

I never change, I simply become more myself.
