Watch Kayleen Grow | A Baby’s First Year Series

Better late than never… This year I made goal that I wanted to capture my little one’s first year, her growth by taking monthly photos, and everyday moments in between. Although it was hard work, I honored my commitment and have completed her first year series! I’m so glad I did this with her and I wanted to share it with all of you.

2 Year Anniversary | Photography Business

November marks the 2 year anniversary of Christina Z Photography and I couldn’t be more proud of my “baby”. While November is also a time to give thanks, it really means so much more. I really want to thank all my wonderful clients that have had the opportunity to get in front of my camera. I have enjoyed so much capturing all your smiles, laughter, smooches, and memories and I wish to do it for many many years to come.

I’d also really like to thank my husband and my family. Without the love and support of my wonderful husband I would absolutely not be where I am today (especially because he purchased me my first “real” camera). I’m so thankful for a family that has encouraged me to follow my dreams, and let me stick my big ole’ camera in their faces time and time again. And of course, I want to thank my little baby girl. She has been the absolute perfect model the past year and is the real reason my passion for photography has grown oodles, not to my mention my business has allowed me to spend my days at home with her.

Within the year, I have zoned in on my true passion within photography – high school seniors, couples, and families. I have really began to brand my company and transform it into the dream I’ve always had.

But of course, I would be nothing with out my very first paying client, whom I wish wasn’t so dang far away. The McBride Family trusted me with their family photos year after year, even when I had just purchased my first camera. I’m so grateful. Putting a dollar value on my product wasn’t easy back then, which leads me to also be so thankful for all the ones who stepped in front of my camera before I had the confidence to call myself a professional. Practice makes perfect right? Also, a huge thanks to my returning clients, who must have loved their experience as much as I did, to want to come back and do it again!

I’ve come a long way and only have the biggest hopes and dreams for the future. I appreciate each and every one of you that support my little dream. Let’s make it another great year!

Here’s a little walk down memory lane…

Who needs to work out when you can chase a toddler around for an hour begging for a smile?! Haha. This little munckin made me work for it, let me tell you. But after countless ant bites, sweating my tush off, stubbing my toe, and jumping around like a circus clown… I managed to capture some real magic for this family.

Christa + Jame | Bradenton Couples Photographer – Christina Z Photography

Christa + Jame  have been together ever since I could remember (we all went to high school together), they’ve been married for 3 years now and are just the sweetest. When Christa came to me to plan her photo session I already knew what she was looking for, it was just a matter of finding the perfect location. She wanted a country themed photo session, tall grass, open fields, wood fence, jeans , and boots.. you know, the works. Finally, the morning of the photo shoot I did find the perfect location. (One of the difficulties of living out of town is not being able to scout locations ahead of time, but I make do.)

How I Got Out of My Creative Rut | Christina Z Photography – Orlando, FL

Sometimes You Just Have to Get Out of the Box

I mean really jump out of the box to jump start your creativity again! I have been wanting to photograph at night using car headlights for a while and just hadn’t gotten to it yet. I have to say, when your in a rut of any sort – mine being a creativity rut within my photography, you must do something for yourself. That’s what I had to do, and it really turned out just as imagined it. I plan to a lot more  shoots for myself in the future. My passion is what got me into this biz, so sometimes I need to rejuvenate that passion. Anyways, my step-sister was coming into town and I knew she’d let me get creative. We picked out the perfect outfit, did her hair and make-up, and off we went…

Your Photos Deserve a Spot on Your Wall

When we first moved into this house I looked at the big bare wall above my couch and thought a huge canvas needs to go there. Months went by and the wall remained empty, because well… I couldn’t commit to just ONE huge canvas. So then I started thinking, what about a photo wall, done with style. So I convinced my handy husband to build me a few shelves. He had no idea to the extreme I wanted these shelves, he soon found out hehe. Once we got them up, the few frames I had weren’t going to do, so I began collecting frames and ordering photos from my professional lab. The best part is I can switch out the photos when I want.
