While we all have thousands of photos saved on our phones, there’s still something magical about having printed art featuring the ones you love most on the walls of your home. It allows you to actually freeze those moments in time and remember when you were pregnant with your first baby, those newborn cuddles that just melt into your chest, or when your children were still tiny and snuggly.

From us saying hello to hanging your artwork on your walls, I'll guide you through it all.

During your in studio styling and planning appointment we will finalize location and choose wardrobe suitable for the setting.
From newborn to plus sizes in a variety of soft color tones, I have something for everyone, including dads!

1. styling & planning

2. hair & makeup

I believe every mommy should feel beautiful and pampered. It's my job to help you tend to the tiniest of details.
My amazing team of professional hair and makeup artists maintain a natural yet polished look that is reflective of your style. Ensuring you feel beautiful for your stress free portrait session.

Once your images are ready to view, we'll set up an in-person ordering appointment and view all the images together. I will guide you through the different image display options and help you choose the best method for incorporating the gorgeous art we have created into your life.

3. image premier & ordering appointment

I know as a new mom you're busy soaking in all that newborn goodness and taking care of your family.  Instead of leaning your new frames against a wall until you or your partner find the time to hang them, (I know I'm not the only one) I take care of that for you!

The entire experience working with Cristina was unlike anything I have had before.  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. Cristina worked her magic making us look good and feel comfortable for the first time in a long time.

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...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.

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