Your BFF Portrait Photographer

I'm Christina :)

I live for the moments spent with my family, especially on our beautiful farm. With four energetic kids and the most supportive husband a girl could ask for, our farm has become our sanctuary, a place where we can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse ourselves in the tranquility of nature. Our family doesn't sit still for long, and laughter is abundant in our house. Whether we're lounging in the peacefulness of our surroundings or embarking on adventures in our trusty RV, every moment is filled with laughter, love, and cherished memories. These moments with my family inspire me and remind me of the importance of capturing life's precious moments through my lens.


My Favorite Things

As a true PNW girl, I'm absolutely obsessed with trees and blue skies. Seriously, those towering giants are my lifeline! And there's just something about a crystal-clear blue sky that instantly lifts my spirits. You'll usually find me outdoors, fully embracing everything nature has to offer. It's my ultimate happy place, where I feel totally at ease. Growing up surrounded by all this beauty was such a blessing, and it's a love I've definitely passed on to my kids.

Trees and blue skies

After welcoming our fourth child, I embraced a childhood dream and welcomed my first horse into our lives as well! Since then, my love for horsemanship has only deepened. Working with my horse provides me mental clarity and keeps me grounded. Trail riding with friends has become a cherished activity, and we enjoy competing together in Mountain Trail and Equine Trail Sports events. There's simply no better way to spend a weekend than with my horse and the wonderful friends we've made along the journey.

"Christina was awesome!! She was so great with the kids and at giving us direction. She has a true eye for photography! It was a very comfortable and relaxed experience! I can’t wait for our next session!"

Family Session


"I recently had an equine photo session with Beyond the Stables Photography and it was such a wonderful experience. Christina was not only skilled in capturing the beauty and personality of my horse, but also had a great eye for unique angles and lighting. The final photos turned out stunning and truly captured the essence of the bond between me and my horse. I couldn't be happier with the results and I highly recommend Christina to any horse lover looking to capture the special moments with their equine companion."

Christina is so much fun to work with! She has so many great and creative ideas and poses to help create a really wonderful collection of photos. Not to mention she is one of the kindest people you could ever hope to meet! Patient with those hard to wrangle kiddos and still comes out with great photos to keep for a lifetime ❤️

Family Session


Beyond the Stables photography is a wonderful business run by an even more wonderful woman! Christina is talented in many ways but especially knowing how to best capture animals in all their beauty. She’s taken beautiful photos at our rescue farm and also supported our cause with her business in more ways than one. Highly recommended for a great positive experience!

Horse Session


We loved working with Christina and our photos turned out amazing! She also said it would take 2 weeks to get photos back, but it only took 1.

Family Session


I had such a great experience with my photo shoot with my mustang. It was calm, relaxing with great guidance in finding the poses that worked best with the scenery and lighting. I loved that her energy was fun, upbeat, and just right to keep Miss Nova focussed and up for the shoot. I definitely recommend her. Now to pick out my favorite photos, that’s the hardest part for me, so many to choose from!
