When you’re not working, what do you enjoy doing? Spending time with my family. I have 2 lovely daughters (15 and 17) and time is running short when they will both be at home, so I cherish EVERY moment I get to spend with them and my husband. We love to do anything active outdoors: skiing, boating, swimming, hiking, biking, walking our dogs etc. I also love to read in the sunshine.
What makes you different? I have been capturing moments in central MN area for long enough (since 2004) that for some families I have been able to capture many stages of their lives…childhood, graduation, marriage and then their own children. A large part of what makes Christina Johnson Photography so unique is the friendship we build with our clients and the detailed session preparation and guidance we provide. We want each and every client to have beautiful, meaningful photos that they can proudly display in their home and share with friends so we take a bit of time to plan and get to know clients before the session.
What do you enjoy the most about being a photographer? There isn’t a day I think of going to ‘work’ … I just get to do what I love. I love capturing candid, genuine, real personalities and showing clients the best versions of themselves. I’m all about details and the little things that take you back to another time. So naturally, I want to capture every eventful moment in my life and the lives of others so it can be remembered forever. In a similar sense, there is a great deal of variety that comes with being a photographer. As someone that shoots any and all kind of portraits, my job takes me everywhere, so I get to visit and explore areas of MN and the world that I’d never normally have reason to check out. When it comes down to it, I just love the personal connection photography provides. So many new relationships, conversations, and special moments have been shared solely because of photography in my life. Oh, and the thank you notes…I get so many warm fuzzy feels from clients. You don’t get that with other jobs. I could go on and on…
