Welcome! I'm Christi and I am a Destin photographer



Memories are precious.

The memories we have, we hold dear in our hearts.  Photography allows us to immortalize those memories and experience them every day.

Let me help your family document your wonderful memories.  I pledge to not only produce beautiful pictures you will cherish forever but to provide a fun, engaging experience you will not soon forget.

I specialize in Destin family beach photography and couples photography, but also love maternity, fun gender reveals, engagement, children, headshots, and high school senior photography.  I service the Destin, Fort Walton Beach, 30A, Niceville, and Santa Rosa Beach areas.  

Being a photographer in Destin FL is truly a privilege.  I get to experience the serenity of the ocean and feel the wind against my face every day I photograph families on the beach.  I am certain all Destin photographers can agree – Destin is one of the most wonderful and unique places on Earth to be a photographer.  Let me take this pride and passion of my work to create something truly special for you.

If you are looking for more than just Destin beach portraits, I also write extensively about Destin so check out my blog posts for tips on where to eat, drink, visit, take pictures, and more!  Anything you want to know that I haven’t already written about? Please, let me know!  If I don’t know I will find out and probably write about it, too.

Christi took our family pictures while in Destin this past week. She is very professional and great at what she does. We were pressed for time as there was a storm moving in, but she didn't let that stop her from taking amazing pictures.

Notable Expertise!

Ever wondered how to properly pose and photograph large groups?  Leave it to me!  

The secret to capturing couples is all about authentic moments.  I know how to capture that love and you will feel comfortable and at ease at every step of the way.

Everyone knows children can be challenging, especially little ones.  I have two of my own and I excel at getting them to behave for pictures.  Trust that I can do the same for you!

Some situations call for a prop!  Whether its a gender reveal or a high school senior session, I know when to use and when not to use one.
