Christy Stevenson's photography career began as her fitness career-- simply as a hobby. She moved to Ridgefield, CT in 2014, and was so in awe of its woodsy beauty, of the wildlife, that she couldn't stop taking pictures on her iphone. Her husband wisely gave her a Nikon that first Christmas in CT, and her new hobby took off. She began simply, as a mother capturing moments of her children, then as a hiker, blogging about her hiking adventures, then as a wanderer, snapping shots of every scene she found lovely. She continues to read, research, and above all, practice and play with her camera, now in the beautiful area of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
Christy believes that every person has a beauty and a light that can be captured. As a former high school teacher, she had a gift of seeing the best in every student, of making them feel seen and valued. As a personal trainer and fitness instructor, she strives to help clients, especially women, see the best in themselves, to stop negative self-talk and an endless cycle of deprivation. It is only natural that as a photographer, she has the same goal and focus of showing others their true beauty, inner strength, and light.
Christy loves when clients come with ideas, too-- you know your family, your kids, yourself better than anyone- who better to help direct the shoot? She makes sure to provide a variety of settings, poses, prop options to ensure you more than enough amazing options but also prefers the lifestyle/editorial style, which is more natural and less formally posed.
