I love this black and white senior outfit it would be perfect for one your downtown Bradenton looks during your senior pictures. I love how it’s a timeless look with the black and white and red lips are so in right now. The trendy scarf adds an element that can be added or removed to create different looks throughout your senior portrait session. Bring flats and heels is always a good idea as well.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Christina Z Photography!
I’m extremely grateful for each and every one of you that decided to choose little ole me to capture your holiday portraits or any of your precious memories this year. It’s always such an honor, as there are so many talented photographers out there and you chose me, and that makes my heart so happy! Continue reading →
Stephanie is a Class of 2013 Early Graduate at Braden River High School. Upon meeting Stephanie I knew her Senior Portrait Session was going to be different, different good. She is an edgy girl and I was excited to show that in her senior photos. Stephanie enjoys photography, cosmetology, and the outdoors. She was going for an urban look for her senior photos, but also wanted to include nature and her outdoorsy-ness (is that a word? it is now).
Grant and Brittany are high school friends of mine, good ole Lakewood Ranch High School Alum. They are expecting their first child, a little princess. Brittany was a glowing 35 weeks and 2 days at the time of her maternity session. Which is during my favorite time to photograph an expecting mama. 27-35 weeks is perfect, you can usually push it to the later end with a first time mom.
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.

IT’S HERE! Cyber Monday is here! So I opted out of having a Black Friday Sale because I was out of town, spending the holiday with family. But I am having my first EVER Cyber Monday Sale and I have super excited to tell you about it because it is the BIGGEST SALE I’ve had this year, wait – scratch that – the BIGGEST SALE I’ve had EVER! I’m bring you not one, not two, but THREE ways to save HUGE this year! So without further ado, here are the details for Christina Z Photography’s Cyber Monday Sale!
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!
This Holiday Mini Session with Chelsea and Robert was so much fun. I had a chance to use some of my new holiday props and get creative! I love working with couples that have such great chemistry, it makes it so much easier to pose them, not to mention this is their second photo shoot with Christina Z Photography.
