Hi, I'm Christy Stalnaker and I live in Hartselle, AL. I have always had a love for taking pictures.  Through high school and college and every family vacation, I was the girl with the camera - the one you could count on to have photos to look back on. It all comes down to one thing - savoring the moments. So, I decided to take this passion and run with it. 

"We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone."

I am married to the man of my dreams, Jacob. We met at church when we were thirteen and were close friends growing up. After college, life led us back to one another and I am so thankful for that. He is an amazing dad and can design or fix just about anything. He's my better half and biggest supporter. I have two wild and crazy boys - Jackson and Preston, and one fur child - our dog Axl. I absolutely love being a boy mom.  My boys are opposites, but best friends and I hope that friendship last forever. If you know me, you know I am slightly obsessed with dogs, especially big mutts.  

Photography is a precious way to go back and relive a moment.  I love details - the fuzzy arm hair on a newborn or the wrinkles on a grandmother's hand as she hugs her granddaughter on her wedding day. I feel so blesssed to be able to meet new families and take photos that they will cherish for years to come. 

My photography style is simplistic and natural. I aim to keep true colors and I do not make people look fake by over-editing. If you want your photos to look bright, colorful, and full of love, then I'm your girl! I promise to make your session enjoyable, even if I have to bribe your kids with candy. Whatever works, right?
