Hi, I'm Tina Christian, and I am a photographer in the northeast Dallas suburbs, taking photos of special moments in life. I grew up in a small South Texas town in a large family who cherished time spent together on holidays and vacations. I have had the love of photographs in my blood since I was a child when my family would often reminisce about our life's experiences by perusing old photos or filmstrips. We would hang a white sheet on a wall, get some snacks together, and watch 16 mm filmstrips on our home projector of family occasions. I loved seeing my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings when they were younger doing activities that created a lifetime of memories. These times are memories that often pop up in my head when day dreaming. I treasure the old photos I have of my great-grandparents and grandparents because it gives me a keepsake of my strong familial foundation. Because of my personal experiences from these photos and occasions, I thought, why not create a service for others to embrace this as well, to have these treasures to display and bestow on others many years from now.
I have no studio; I borrow from God's light and canvas to create memories. Capturing special moments in essential stages of life, catching the way natural light enhances a scene, snapping up various angles to complement a photo, and freezing natural moments in a photograph is my passion. I dislike awkward posing or forced scenarios, so my goal is to capture the essence of the people in the photos during natural interactions, but I will do some staged posing as necessary. I am open to creative ideas from clients and appreciate their input for this very personal endeavor. Loving your photos and sharing them is my goal for your investment.
