I’m Christina

 I've been a professional photographer for 17 years and I'm still loving it. I'm an adventurer at heart, and I love creating something truly unique for my clients. I've been known to posthole through deep snow, climb on rocky terrain, go up mountains, bop around town, or come to your home to create incredible artwork that will be treasured forever.

I've lived a pretty fun life so far, starting in New York, traveling extensively in the US, Europe and beyond, and living in France and London for several years. I passed through Colorado with no intention of leaving the city life, but somehow 17 years has passed since then, and I own a house in Boulder with my husband and six-year-old daughter who is the light of my life. I love that I can be biking by a farm or hiking up a mountain within a few minutes from my house. Or I can hop on a bus and be at happy hour in Boulder or Denver's Union Station in less than a half hour. We have a little garden in the summer and my daughter bikes to school every day during the school year. We travel to the mountains or to the coasts as much as possible for work and fun, and in between my husband and I both work from home. It's a nice life.

I love creating beautiful photos that connect and remind people of the love, freedom, inspiration and fun in their life. Through the ups and downs of life, gorgeous photos remind us of what truly matters.

MENTORING with CKP

It’s possible

What do you do when you read all the advice and watch all the videos but none of these feels authentic to you? Your path needs to be just that, your path. Take a breath and learn to know yourself. Hone your craft, learn how to work well with people, learn where you really excel. As a personal and commercial photographer with a full-time, year-round business, I can give you insight into the workings of photography, the skills you need to succeed in your specialty, and how to rise to the level of a professional. There is way too much unprofessionalism and misinformation out there, let’s raise the bar.

  • Do you dream of being a professional photographer but don’t know how to get there?

  • Are you feeling stuck and unsure of where to take your business?

  • Do you want to explore a different type of photography and don’t know how?

  • Do you want to get access to a live shoot and see how it’s handled by an experienced professional?

  • Do you need help turning your shots into masterpieces in Lightroom?

  • Do you need to know what equipment you need to create the work you want to create?

  • Do you feel pulled or pushed in different directions and unsure of what your next step should be to to really blossom as a photographer?

  • Have you lost your connection to why you became a photographer?

Photography is a combination of technical skill, lighting knowledge, creativity, emotional connection, working with people, listening well, understanding your value proposition, being an entrepreneur, and creating an exceptional customer experience. It’s a full right brain + left brain challenge. Developing your skills across this full spectrum of challenges in a way that feels authentic to your creative expression is the key to long-term success. It's totally possible.
