My name is Cristel and I am a mom to two beautiful daughters and a wife to a talented Raleigh wedding photographer. These three incredible beings are my inspiration (and the focus of some of my best work!).
There are very few moments in life that are so emotionally charged and beautiful as seeing your newborn baby. Each photo I take is lovingly captured to help you bring back these precious memories for years to come. Together, we will create memories that last for future generations, your children and grandchildren, to look back on and enjoy.
My skills extend beyond photography; I act as a quiet, gentle presence for your baby. Most of my clients are less than two weeks old, and they aren’t used to this world. I conduct all of my sessions in my home studio, which has plenty of natural light. There won’t be any harsh flashes or complicated lighting equipment. My sessions are peaceful and enjoyable for parents and baby.
I would love to have the opportunity to take pictures of this special time in your life. I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
"I want to give a "shout out" to Cristel at Teeny Beans Photography. She did an amazing job taking pictures of my family and my newborn baby. She was very professional, patient, and willing to make me us feel as comfortable as possible. She was gentle and sensitive with my baby and run the whole session based on his timing and needs.
I would definitely go with Cristel and Tenny Beans Photography for another photo session in the future. I am very satisfied with both, the session experience and the final product!"
"Cristel did my youngest daughter Cloe when she was only 7 days old. I had a great experience. She is very professional and the shots were stunning. What a great memory of my newborn! 100% recommended!!"
"Cristel photographed my twins after they were born. She was so very patient as we tried to get them settled, taking as long as we needed. We got beautiful pictures of them both individually and together. I do recommend her photography. It's a decision you'll never regret."
"Cristel did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable during our daughter's infant photo shoot. The room was kept dark and warm with a sound machine imitating a heart beat. This kept our daughter encouraged to stay asleep for the photo session. There were tons of cute props and she was very gentle and respectful during the session. We LOVED the way our photos turned out and were very happy to use them for her birth announcement and baptism invitations. I would highly recommend Teeny Beans!"
"What an amazing experience we had with Cristel and Joe. They're amazing and very professional. The studio was kept warm and with background noises for our baby's comfort. Our DD was sound sleep and seemed to be very pleased because of the peaceful ambience.
Their work is AMAZING !!! We couldn't be happier or more satisfied.
Thank you for the amazing job and for capturing such a special moment in our lives, the birth of our beautiful daughter !!"
