My experience with a Christie was phenomenal! My 3 week old son was used for a modeling session. He was less than cooperative for a good majority of our session which was stressful and frustrating for me. But Christie was so patient with both my son and I and the photos turned out amazing. I loved how she was willing to capture the little things, like his hands and feet, the things that most photographers don't take the time to notice, let alone capture. The props that she used only enhanced the photos and weren't distracting like some props can be. I highly recommend Christie to anyone looking for a photographer who is patient and creative. She was amazing and I look forward to working with her again when we need photos again.
Christie was a ton of fun to work with! Her creativity truly brought out my personality in my pregnancy photos and I couldnt have been happier with the outcome.
It is rare to find a photographer that has the talent, charisma, and patience to work flawlessly with newborns - but those are exactly the characteristics that Christie posesses. My husband, 8 year old son, and I had amazing maternity pictures taken by her, and then had her take the pictures of my newborn son about a month later. Both sessions were held in a comfortable environment, and produced absolutely amazing pictures for our family to treasure forever. During the newborn picture session, my son was being a stinker and was wide awake - not wanting to go to sleep. Christie encouraged us to cradle him and get him to drift off….which took nearly an hour to accomplish! During that time, she visited with us and exhibited extreme patience - and never made us feel uncomfortable or awkward. When the little man eventually drifted off, she was able to gently position him so he never woke up, and the pictures that were captured are incredible. Christie took photos of my sons that highlighted their innocence and beauty, and I would highly recommend Christie as a photographer for anyone that is searching.
I stumbled upon a Aloha, Light! while searching for a local photographer to take our first ever professional family photos. We couldn't be happier with our choice! Christie had wonderful recommendations for several outdoor locations in our area that resulted in really unique and beautiful photos. She worked with our large family and we ended up wonderful photos. These are lasting memories that the whole family will treasure. Thank you!
Excellent service. She takes the time to listen to what you want and create something beautiful!
I love the work that Christie does. She is good at what she does, I highly recommend her!
Back in 2012 Christie Petersen did some pictures for my family. She was referred to me by a friend and so glad to have contacted her. She did individual, kid groups and family, they were amazing and so was she. My 5 kids at the time ranged from 15 down to 2. She was professional, fun, and quick. We received the most wonderful pictures! I still have numerous ones hanging in my house and receive compliments all the time on them. Anyone who is thinking of using Christie will not be disappointed. I wish she still lived in the area because we would be using her still.
Your photography skills are impeccable! The memories captured are priceless. Thank you!
Christie did such an amazing job doing my newborn's pictures. She was so patient and had lots of fun props and ideas to share. She was the right person to capture images of my precious little one!
She did a amazing job and answered all of my questions. I would use her again and again!
