I'm Christine Wright
I'm a south-central JERSEY photographer, mom of two MIGHTY girls, and life-long LEARNER and CREATOR. Current obsessions: podcasts, the power of PLAY, and my husband's hair. I've been documenting childhood and parenthood since 2011.
Are you my people?
We might just be a perfect fit if you identify with one or more of the following:
You recognize, or yearn to recognize, the beauty in your everyday life.
You loathe the idea of setting aside time for family photos, schlepping the kids in the car, and resorting to bribery for a few nice photos.
You’re uncomfortable being photographed.
Your family runs away screaming when you announce it’s time for family photos.
You have a million candid photos of your family but you’re not in any of them.
You work like a dog to create a meaningful life for your family and you want proof that it’s all worth it (because IT IS, my friend).
You roll your eyes every time you see another Pinterest-perfect family portrait on social media.
You know the moments are whizzing by, and in five, 10, 20 years, you will not just want to remember, but you will want to FEEL like you are there again.
I come to you with no judgement or expectations and I document your truth. Then, together we build works of art - heirloom photojournalistic albums and timeless wall pieces - that become part of your family’s legacy.
Why i do what i do
I'm a bit neurotic about leaving a visual history for my own children. When I'm long-gone, I want my girls to know I was there. And that I SAW them. Together we navigated this crazy human experience and it was raw and beautiful. That's why I document my own children. That's the gift I can help you give your family.
More About Me
Most days you can find me decked out in jeans, a Star Wars t-shirt, and a top knot. It's not that I'm THAT big of a Star Wars fan. It's just that my husband gives me a Star Wars t-shirt for practically every holiday. I'm still trying to figure out why.
If I’m not on my computer, culling and processing pictures or doing other savvy-businesswoman-type things, you can usually find me with my kids. we hang out at home a lot doing messy play, after which I sometimes kick myself. We frequent the local parks, library, our CSA farm, and Panera. I walk a wire trying to empower them to be who they are, while struggling with keeping my sanity as they assert their independence and individuality.
A REALLY cool thing happened. One of my photos received an honorable mention in the Documentary Family Awards. This is an international competition created and judged by the TOP documentary family photographers in the industry. I was watching the judging via livestream and started jumping up and down wildly as my image made it to the final round. My kids thought I had gone nuts. I'm truly honored to be ranked among such fabulous artists.
But enough about me. Let's talk about YOU.
