Christie | Portraits

Ever since I met Christie I have been wanting to take portraits of her. :-) She's just so cute I knew she'd be great in front of the lens! She was so kind to oblige me and we spent the early afternoon yesterday around Woodstock Square (yes, again) doing portraits. It was a little challenging to try to get different pictures than I got last time I was there, aside from having a different model; but we hit a couple of different alleys and brick walls, as well as the same spots from different angles. I've got another shoot there soon so I'll have to see what new things I can come up with for that. :-)

Thanks, Christie, for being such a sport! I love how the pictures came out... I hope it was worth it for you. :-)

Her mom and friend hand-paint silk ribbons and other wearables, and Christie is wearing one in her hair.
Pretty, isn't it? Check out Silk Life Studio's website or Etsy shop!

Two favorites for sure!

C is for Christie!
(or cookie... or chocolate... or creme brulee)
The C was hand-painted by her sister! Artsy people in this family!

Love the one on the right particularly

I just love it when my model is willing to be hoisted into windows!

Laughter is good medicine!

We went inside the opera house and looked around just for fun, and got a few fun shots too!
If I ever did a bridal shoot on the square, I would use this window. It's cool.

The real us. *cough*


  1. you have such talent, Kathryn! oh and "C" was originally for Christie but I liked the C even more when I married a man named Crandall:-)

    1. All the glory to God! It also helps when you've got a really great model. :-) See, now you need 2 C's! Thank you so much for modeling for me, I had a great time shooting you (hehe) and just hanging out!

  2. Hi Katheryn Grace, I don't know you yet, but i like you. Your photographs have a fresh honesty. You captured Christies essence, which means she really trusts her photographer. It is a fine quality to have your camera "disappear".

    1. Thank you so much, Lora! It's great to hear that the photos capture who Christie is, especially coming from someone who knows her better than I do. :-) Your silk art is beautiful!

  3. I LOVE the ones inside the opera house; just stunning. and the black-&-white laughter ones. beautiful shots as always, Kathryn. :]

  4. I recognize those locations!! :D

    Those window shots are particularly remarkably lovely.

    1. Ok, both you girls give me your opinion - did you like the lighter or the darker of the opera house indoor window shots? I keep fluctuating between them and can't decide which ones are better.

      Oh, Laura, I have a feeling you'll be recognizing those locations rather often. You got me hooked on Woodstock Square. :-)

    2. I liked the lighter ones better. all that light flooding in those big beautiful windows. :)

  5. Your pictures are beautiful!!!! Love love love all the shots. :D

  6. Beautiful pictures, beautiful gal,
    I also like the background wall with the ivy growth. real nice background,
    Love your pictures as always! Oma

  7. OOoo! So pretty, Kathryn! Amazing model, amazing venue...I'm allllmost jealous... :)

    1. You can understand why I would do 3 shoots there all within one month, right? :-)
