Chrissy Walther is a San Diego Family Photographer capturing authentic connections within families and expecting couples.



Hello! Landing on my site means you're at least semi-interested in having your beautiful self in front of my camera. I hope there is nothing holding you back. Don't let how you might perceive yourself, the struggle to find matching outfits, or your fear of not knowing how to act or pose get in the way. I am not THAT photographer. I believe beauty is found in the uniqueness of your connection with your loved ones. The way they look at and embrace you. The way their hand fits perfectly in yours. These are the photographs I live for. I am SO glad you’re here.

When should I book my session? Honestly, ASAP. I am currently booked 1-2 months in advance. 3 months in advance for fall months (October/November).

Maternity sessions should be booked asap for when you are 30-34 weeks pregnant when you have a good size bump!

Lifestyle Newborn sessions are best booked as soon as possible. We’ll plan the session date for when baby is 1-14 days old.

Fresh 48 sessions are booked based on delivery date. I will rely on you to notify me when you go into labor and/or notifying me as soon as baby is born. This will allow me time to find care for my 2 little ones. I do have back up photographers just in case I am sick or unavailable for any unforeseen circumstances.

Can I book an extended family session with you?

Unfortunately, at this time, I am not taking on extended family sessions. I like to keep sessions smaller, with immediate family members, to really highlight the emotional connections you have with each other. Bigger family shoots tend to be very posed in nature and that is not in line with my style. I am happy to refer you to some amazing photographers that do though! Just ask!

What is a lifestyle newborn session and can't you just do a few posed shots?

Lifestyle newborn and traditional newborn studio sessions are very different. My approach is to capture your family with your new addition in the most authentic way possible. I also include portrait shots of just the baby, but after I wrap him or her up, I allow the baby to move, stretch, and settle in naturally. I do not provide props or outfits of any kind. There is absolutely nothing wrong with posed/traditional newborn shoots, I just do not provide that service at this time. Need an example? Click HERE for featured sessions! Not your style? Ask me for recommendations to my favorite posed newborn photographers!

Do you have a studio?

No, I don't. I am a lifestyle photographer so outdoor locations or in your home are where we will be shooting. No exceptions.

What should we wear?

I get this question a lot. My only requests? No logos, no matchy-matchy, no white t-shits tucked into blue jeans. I have put together a Pinterest board to give you some ideas. If all else fails, mom should pick what she is most comfortable in and everyone can coordinate around her. 

Do you offer any discounts, return client discounts, or offer mini-sessions?

I give small discounts when clients book more than one session at at time. Please contact me for a customized quote.

Once you become my client, you are now eligible for mini-sessions throughout the year. These sessions are 30-45 minutes long, perfect for those super cute milestones of baby, or a quick family shoot for holiday cards.

I give a 15% off first-responder & military discount on FULL Family & Newborn sessions. Thank you for your service!
