Christie took pictures of my photo-averse family this summer. My husband hates to get his picture taken! My 3 year-old son is painfully shy, and my 5 year-old daughter usually produces this unnatural grimace/smile when a camera is pointed at her. Despite all that, Christie took some truly beautiful pictures. She must have some kind of magical calming power. She came to our house and immediately put us all at ease. She is very patient and was able to produce and capture some natural happiness. I was thrilled with the pictures and the experience.
