MEET christina 

Hi there! I'm Christina Sanders, a Family Lifestyle Photographer located in the heart of Virginia Beach, Virginia. I know life is busy so I'm so happy you're here! I want you to get to know me, what I do and what I love, so I can get to know you, too!

As a photographer and military wife, I enjoy meeting people from all over the country; listening to their what, when, why, and how transforms my clients into lifelong friends. How lucky I am because I get to illustrate a tiny chapter of your life through photographs!

Honestly when I don't have a camera in hand, I love just being a mom! I have 2 daughters + 1 son who light up my life. We enjoy being outside + exploring this beautiful city of Virginia Beach.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition and dietetics. Health + wellness is something I've always been passionate about and I admire others who navigate life whole-heartedly healthy.

More about me - I'm a minimalist wannabe with a neutral obsession. I love iced chai, organizing spaces, Montessori learning, sunflowers + succulents, salt + sand. :)

meet my family!

Christina was able to get a brilliant shot of me and my little family even though I forgot a nice shirt for my toddler and my baby fell asleep after nursing in his carrier. I really thought we had ruined the opportunity, but it ended up being a favorite photo of all time. 

She makes real life look amazingly beautiful.

WOW! I can't say enough about Christina and the wonderful photos she took of my family during our vacation. I found her online as we were coming in from out of town and I wasn't really sure how it was going to go but thought I'd give it a try and I'm SO glad I did! 

She was amazing with my daughter, she was patient with our wild puppy and she was able to beautifully capture a very important time in our lives. 

I will cherish these photos forever. I only wish she lived closer!

We love Christina!! Throughout the process she was professional and prompt, but also friendly and easy to work with. She was even willing to reschedule us due to crazy Cleveland weather. She scouted our location beforehand so we knew where and when to meet, and what to bring.

During the session she worked so well with my daughter, who is a pretty wild toddler. This was the most important thing to me in a photographer. It's not easy getting kids to cooperate for photos, but with Christina there was no pressure.

We got plenty of posed shots, but mainly we just played together as a family. I am blown away by the photos and will definitely book again in the future!

Christina is the most amazing photographer I’ve ever worked with. For our photo session we gave her a challenge, two adults, two children and a giant dog!

Christina knew how to handle everybody in the group including the six-year-old who wanted her picture taken everywhere and the one-year-old who just wanted to run around and play!

It was amazing to me that she worked so freely with them and came up with amazing photos! She was absolutely born to do this and I suggest her for your family photos.

Christina took photos of our family during my wife's pregnancy and we couldn't have been happier with the photos we received. It was a windy day and our one and a half year old did not make the photo shoot easy but Christina took it all in stride and captured some wonderful moments. 

She was also excellent to work with for scheduling and had a quick turnaround time with the photos. I would highly recommend her for family/maternity photos.
