Thank you for stopping by! I'm christina...

I’m an outgoing, fun-loving mother to two beautiful little girls and a handsome little boy! I live in Napa, CA…WINE COUNTRY, but don’t much care for wine and would much rather have a margarita! I love Jesus, my family, dancing, dinner dates and photographing my incredible clients! Photography has been such a blessing in my life; an outlet to touch other people’s lives with my passion, providing images that are truly worth a thousand words…if not more.  Making my clients feel their importance, beauty and uniqueness is what I strive to bring to them in their sessions and the photos I capture.  It is more rewarding than I ever thought possible and I can’t imagine doing anything else.  I look forward to meeting you and sharing lots of laughs, and telling your story through my lens.

ARE YOU STILL READING? I have just a little more to share…

My true passion lies within photographing people. I have photographed just about everything you can think of since I started my business but I have learned that my images really shine when I’m capturing love, beauty, emotion, passion, and individuality.  My ideal client is creative, passionate, daring and sexy.  Capturing killer style, confidence, sass and sensuality make my heart melt.  Because of this realization, my realm of photographic expertise lies in shooting weddings, intimate portraiture (you can see my boudoir work HERE!) and people portraits.  I take a select number of family sessions per year but they go very fast. Please take a look at my PORTFOLIO to get a feel for the style that defines and sets c.m.elle studios apart from the rest.

My Minis

Lailah Amber – 8 Years Old
She’s compassionate, hilarious and learning Spanish as a second language. She’s smart and has her mother’s personality and loves Jesus with all her heart. She consistently blows my mind with her faith and kindness.

Lincoln Grayson – 3 Years
This photo is from his 2 year shoot, and no I haven’t shot his 3 year photos! I’m so behind. He loves his Mama but really is a sweet heart to anyone. He’s got quite the personality and will talk your ear off! My spunky little man!

Lynlee Quinn – 6 Years Old
My love bug! She’s strong willed and gets frustrated easily but will never turn down the opportunity to cuddle! She also adores her brother so much so that she can’t keep her hands off him and his chubby rolls.
