Hi there, I'm Christina
I am so excited that you are here and feel honored you would consider me as your family photographer. I started Hatched Photography in 2013, after having my two boys. Looking at their little faces and seeing how fast they grow and change, I wanted to capture all their little moments. My husband had bought me a fancy camera while I was pregnant and it became my mission to learn how to use it. Once I picked it up I never looked back.
I feel incredibly lucky to have a career I love. I am passionate about ‘Lifestyle’ newborn and family photography because, as a mom, I understand first hand how fleeting all these moments are. I look at each family and see such beauty, a beauty that I feel fortunate to get to capture in my lens and share with the world. The beauty that I see is not just what is pretty but also what is real... your love, connection, laughter & joy.
WHAt Makes me different
Experienced with Babies, kids & Teens
I have years of experience working with all types of kids and I am known for my relaxed, laid-back personality. I can soothe an upset newborn, chase after a wild toddler, or spend a little extra time with the child who is shy and quiet. From crying babies to anxious teens...not much can ruffle my feathers.
Clean Timeless Editing
As a digital shooter, editing is a big part of what I do. I go for a bright, clean edit that looks authentic and timeless. I do not put heavy filters on or drastically alter colors in a photo. I make sure your skin tones are natural and I fix blemishes and light up wrinkles. I want your images to be a true representation of you.
Images that are AUTHENTICALLY you
As a 'Lifestyle' photographer I guide you through poses and prompts that bring about real smiles and expressions. I help you be in the moment and just relax; because the best portraits are when everyone feels like they can be themselves...and then I'm capturing the story of YOU.
A little about me
Married to my man crush
I've been married to my wonderful husband for 15 years! We met right after college on a trip tubing down the Guadalupe river. He is from OU and I'm from UT, but I was able to look past that and fell in love ;)
He is the rock of our family and without his support and encouragement I would have never been able to follow my dreams of starting my own business.
We added this sweet fur baby to our family summer of 2021. The kids named her Nova (no special meaning, just liked the name). She is the source of much joy in our house. She is the best cuddler and always greets us with a smile and kisses.
My little mEN
I am blessed to be the mom of two rambunctious, sweet, loving boys. These boys are the light of my life! And they are growing up so fast (too fast!). I am trying to hold on to every moment that is given to me while they are young, because I know they will be all grown up in just a blink of an eye. Most weekends you'll find me cheering them on at whichever sporting activity is in season OR carting them and their friends around town (because they are almost teenagers AHHH!).
