What age are these sessions for?

You Glow, Girl was originally designed for girls ages 8 - 14, however, after requests, we have expanded this offering to girls from 8 - 18 years old.

Is wardrobe included?

Christina has a growing collection of couture gowns in various sizes for girls of all shapes and sizes. All You Glow, Girl! participants will have access to use any item in her client closet. However, should there not be a gown that fits your teen, or you have your eye on one you love, please ask about the "Buy Back" Program Christina offers.

What if I don't want my daughter to wear makeup?

As a mom of 3 young girls herself, Christina understands not wanting your daughter to wear makeup at such a young age. For her own daughter's session she only had on mascara and a nearly clear lip gloss. If you decide to not have makeup applied to your daughter and want her to be shown in her natrually beautiful state, we are all for it!


A Note From Christina

Did you know a girl's self-esteem peaks at age 9?

Why did I choose this project?

As a mother of 5, including 3 girls, one of which is currently in the pre-teen age range, and one will be in just a short two years, I want to encourage my daughters to pursue their passions and know that they are beautiful works of art created by God. I remember my own formative years and remember how self-conscious I was, and I can already see my daughters dealing with confidence on a daily basis. It hurts to see our children doubt themselves and I want to empower them and show them that they can do anything they dream of. They are capable, caring, smart, talented & beautiful young ladies. If I can help them FEEL that during a 2 hour session and then they can remember how they felt each time they see their beautiful portrait in our home, then I want to do that. I want that for every young lady. When you feel good, you do good. And we all need a little more good in the world.

You Glow, Girl!

Meet Christina

As a child, the only portraits Christina had of herself were the awkward school portraits every year. Our family was never displayed on the walls of our home. It wasn't for lack of love, just that her single mother was too busy working multiple jobs and caring for five children...and before she knew it, Christina was off to college and married and starting a family of her own.

Christina's mission as a photographer became clear over a decade ago. To help her clients preserve their precious memories of their children & families and to celebrate every stage of a child's life and decorate her clients' homes with beautiful custom artwork of what is most important - FAMILY. Artwork that matters.

No matter what stage your child is in, there is no wrong time to have him or her photographed. We invite you to set up a time to meet with us for a portrait consultation to see how to create heirloom artwork for you and your family to enjoy.
