Although Moberly, MO is the home of Ivy and Ink Photography, there is virtually nowhere I won't go! A little gas can get me anywhere in the state, and my passport and suitcases are on standby to meet you in whatever special place you want to create memories. I have traveled extensively in order to photograph elopements, weddings, and just for fun! I love the magic of being in a foreign place with new friends and creating a moment that will never exist again. I hope to meet you soon!
Your life is a series of little moments - some good, some bad, but all of them beautiful because they add up to who you are today. That's where I come in. I love to capture a moment in you and your loved ones' lives that can never be dulled or forgotten. With a lens and the right lighting, I can tell the story of who you are on a given day. As a wife, I know how important it is to celebrate your love and have something to look at as a reminder of where you were and how you have grown together. As a mom, I definitely know that time flies and moments are gone too fast if we don't do something to immortalize them. And as a human being, I automatically have love for you and live to have shared experiences. Because I treasure love, connection with others, and authenticity, that's what I focus on capturing when I'm with you. I work to create permanent evidence that we are all beautiful humans who deserve love and respect.
My goal is to capture the real you during our session. Your beauty can't fully shine until you let go and just exist in the moment. That's why it's so important for us to talk and get to know each other first. Let's chat more to discuss how we can get the most out of your photoshoot! I would love to get together if you are local, but video calling works great too if we can't meet up before the session date. I am willing to put in the time to make sure everyone is comfortable for the day of your session by talking as much. I truly want to be your photographer, but meeting and connecting with other awesome people is the most important thing to me!
Tell me Your Story & let's create something extraordinary together.
“I remember when I first booked Christine for a Mommy & M session years ago and how excited I was. When I got that session back, I was in love. They captured so much more than my daughter and I. Her pictures tell a story. Every session I look back on with Christine it brings back a feeling of a chapter in my life.. An announcement, a Christmas card in the mail, first family pictures, and a newborn session that completed our family. I tell Christine what I want and she makes that happen better than I could even image. I told her how simple I wanted our lifestyle newborn session, and the simplicity of that session took my breath away. She has an eye for every detail and environment in which she photographs in. Christine will be a forever friend and photographer. I can’t wait for her to capture the next session of my sweet girls"
“Christine was our photographer for our wedding on June 9, 2018 and I could not imagine choosing anyone else to do the job. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable. My husband is not much of a talker or photo taker, and even he was having a good time. She made the process so easy and traveled to St Louis for both our engagement shoot and for our wedding. She captured everything I wanted on our big day and went above and beyond all of our expectations. She even helped me get into my wedding dress after a few minor (possibly major) setbacks! She creates such beautiful moments and you can tell she has such passion, love, and knowledge for what she does, and she truly cares for each and every couple she works with. My husband and I loved sharing our day with her, and we now get to look back on all the amazing memories she captured of our beautiful wedding.”
“Christine has captured my family since 2012 including one of the most important moments in my life, when my last baby and only daughter was born. I wouldn’t pick anyone else to capture my moments. Not only in her work beautiful, but she thrives to make it better with every photo she takes. She captures the beauty of every moment and allows me to feel those emotions all over again. She takes her job very seriously and she’s not afraid to step out of the box to give you exactly what you want. I highly recommend that you allow her to capture your special moments too. Her work speaks for itself, but it’s your moments she froze in time that you get to look back on.”
“Christine did an amazing job capturing our special day! We planned out the day beforehand and it helped calm my nerves. We talked about my vision and came up with a picture list so it all went smoothly! The pictures turned out better than I could imagine! After your special day is over all you have to look back on is your pictures! My husband and I are so happy with our choice!”
