Timeless • Modern • Heirlooms

From planning your session through guiding you on where & how to hang your artwork,
I am there with you through every step of the process. You're in great hands.

The entire experience working with Cristina was unlike anything I have had before.  We were so thrilled to be able to capture this moment in time to look back on.

She has an amazing eye for capturing genuine moments which translate into beautiful photos. From start to finish, Cristina walked us through what to expect, and helped with location and wardrobe styling - Lena was so excited to pick out a dress to wear! On the day of the shoot, she was AMAZING with both of the kids, including making it fun for Lena (which if you know how 3 year olds can be, is not an easy task) 

She makes turning your photos into works of art in your home super easy. 

Family Session

Sarah & Jon

It was such a beautiful day, and our experience was emotional yet peaceful. It was so nice to be in our home with still recovering from delivery. Cristina worked her magic making us look good and feel comfortable.

Somehow, someway she got shots of the dogs too which was so special for us! We will always cherish that day embracing our new little family and holding our precious baby Olive while she slept.

Cristina’s photos are hard to put a value on...she captures precious moments with loved ones that will be cherished for a life time. Not only are the photos amazing and of high quality, but the way she works with her clients is amazing and she definitely has a knack for working with newborns.

My favorite part of being photographed by Cristina is her eye for creativity and again capturing moments that you had no idea would be so special. I have and will always highly recommend Cristina, as she has done at least five separate shoots for me and my new family and will always be my go to photographer for all occasions in her field of work.

Cristina Hope offers one-of-a-kind, full service photography. She has taken newborn and family photos for me twice now. She has helped me style my family’s wardrobe, providing me with beautiful and flattering studio wardrobe each time.

Once our photos were ready, she came to our home to show us and help us select images. Each time we selected images to have printed, matted and framed to hang in a gallery collection she helped us design for our home.

I absolutely love the moments in time that she has captured for us and whole heartedly recommend her.
