"Christina photographed our daughter when she was 6 days old at our home. She was down to earth, professional and very easy to work with. She was extremely patient with our baby and obviously very comfortable working with newborns to ensure that she gets the best photos. We ordered prints from Christina which arrived very quickly. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of photos and services she provided to our family. We would highly recommend her to all of our family and friends. Thanks Christina!!"
"We had a wonderful experience with Christina. She was warm, friendly and worked so well with our newborn daughter :) She truly has a gift for working with newborns and for being an excellent photographer. We would recommend her services to anyone looking for a photographer!"
"Christina demonstrated great confidence and professionalism throughout our newborn session and easily created a relaxed environment for both us and our baby. Her emphasis on safety while posing our son helped us feel comfortable and allowed us to enjoy the experience greatly. We loved the photos and were pleased with how quickly we received them. We are so grateful for this great memory. Thank you!"
"Almost immediately after finding out we were pregnant with our second child, we knew we wanted to book Christina for a newborn session when our new baby arrived. We were so pleased with the photographs she took of our first daughter 2 years earlier, there wasn't a doubt we would be just as satisifed the second time around. The luxury of being able to do the session in our own home helped provide a relaxed and calm experience, as did Christinas' gentle demeanor and timely patience...especially with our spunky toddler ;) Thank you Christina for giving us such precious images that we will treasure for a lifetime."
"Christina took pictures of our son when he was 7 days old, she came into our home and made me feel comfortable, she was so kind, understanding and patient. Christina has a talented gift with newborns but was also able to include my 3 year old son in the process making him feel special too. I will cherish my pictures forever and I'm so thankful to have shared this amazing life experience with her. Christina, Thank you so much!"
"Christina did a fantastic job taking pictures of first our son and then a year and a half later, our daughter. She came prepared with so many props and ideas to work with. We appreciated her kindness and patience with us as we worked together to capture some amazing moments. We highly recommend her creative talents to anyone!"
"It is my pleasure to recommend Christina Claus Photography. Christina's gentle nature and undying patience with my son was so greatly appreciated.
Christina not only captured several traditional family portraits, but she also managed to capture the intimate interactions of me, my husband and son as well.
Christina's professional approach combined with the superb colour and clarity quality of her images made Christina Claus Photography the perfect choice in photographers for my family!"
"I'm so happy with the pictures that Christina took of my family. Everybody just loves them! She did an amazing job. She was very professional and also very patient! The photo session took a little longer than expected because my newborn daughter just would not go to sleep. But Christina waited for a whole 2 hours! She was so understanding. I guess it's because she's a mom too, and she knows exactly how unpredictable babies can be sometimes. All the pictures turned out great. I would definitely recommend her. She was able to capture a beautiful moment in time for us, one that we will always have and be able to look back on."
"My husband and I had Christina take both pregnancy and newborn pictures. With my husband working out of province she was able to work around his schedule. When we were supposed to have our belly pictures we had a huge wind storm and lots of rain, Chrsitina went out of her way and found us the perfect outdoor location and thanks to her our pictures turned out perfect. When we had our baby she came to our house and brought all her props with her, she was amazing with our son! He was fussy that morning and she was calm the whole time and very patient, she was very gentle and a natural with him. With him being so fussy I didn't think we were going to get a lot of good pictures, Christina took beautiful pictures and there were a lot to choose from which made it very hard to pick which ones we wanted. Christina is an amazing photographer and we would recommend her to everyone!"
"Christina is an incredibly talented photographer. She did our maternity and newborn pictures and we were so happy with how everything turned out. She has this way of capturing the most amazing angles and poses with different focuses and perspectives that result in a very creative, one-of-a-kind finished product with just the right amount of touch-ups and editing. We were so impressed with her natural ability with newborns - the way she can so gently, patiently, and lovingly "contort" and position babies to get the most adorable poses... and newborns love her too! Our daughter didn't even wake up in the several hours that Christina moved her about and the pictures captured this peacefulness. Christina has a quiet confidence about her that makes working with her a joy - she always accommodates the client and provides a most professional experience and final product. I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone that is interested in nothing but the best in the way of a beautif"
"When we decided to have newborn photos taken of our daughter, Eloise, we spent a lot of time checking out the local photography scene. After several uninspiring emails/phone conversations with potential photographers, we received a response from Christina. What impressed us the most was her enthusiasm about her line of work. She was genuinely excited to discuss ideas and better understand our vision, and she always responded promptly to any emails we sent.
On the day of the photography session, we were amazed at the arsenal of cutsie props and backdrops that she brought with her. As any mother of a newborn can attest, anything that takes the thought and planning out of your hands in those first weeks is a welcome thing. We literally did not have do anything. Christina brought so many adorable accessories that we couldn't possibly use them all! Also, the backdrops and props she brought were stunning. Several friends and family members couldn't believe the photo session took place in "
"Christina did such an amazing job for my maternity and newborn sessions. The location she chose for the maternity shots was stunning and made for GORGEOUS pictures. She was fun, professional and made us feel very comfortable. When the time came for our newborn session she brought a TON of different props and outfits to my house and set herself up in no time. She was very patient with my son and knew just how to keep him calm and posed to get the great shots. She was also flexible with a bunch of shots we wanted to get of our son on a snowboard which turned out to be some of our favorites. All in all I would recommend her to anyone and have already. She is professional and fun and very prompt on replying and responding to any of your needs or concerns."
