"A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it." Edward Steichen
I began shooting portraits in 2007 and have never looked back. With the birth of my first son in 2010 I began my venture into child and family photography.
As a mom of two little boys I understand that my littlest clients and their families usually require a bit more time and patience and I am always happy to oblige. Calm, comfortable, and relaxed are all synonymous with true emotion shining through in pictures.
Aside from photography I am also an avid bookworm and am usually in the middle of three books at any given time. I homeschool my first grader and when my youngest is ready for Kindergarten he'll join the fun. I am in the process of my third consecutive Project 365 (a photo a day, everyday, for a year) and I also moderate the Oh Shoot Photo Group on Facebook open to anyone with a passion for photography.
I Love: Snow, coffee, Supernatural, reading, writing, my family, clean carpets, salty things, live music, makeup, electric blankets, planning parties, cleaning (yes, I'm that weirdo), Misha Collins, and finishing a workout.
I Loathe: Tea, rude people, folding laundry, hot days, socks with holes, lizards, seafood, broken guitar strings, cliffhangers at the season finale, and hangnails.
For a visual representation of my photography journey check out my blog post, Evolution.

About Chrissy Mazer Photography
As of March 2017 I am thrilled to offer sessions at my studio conveniently located right off of the 35W in Burnsville, MN. With both natural light and studio light bays I am more able than ever to provide you with gorgeous images regardless of the weather that Minnesota throws our way!
Also available onsite is a gorgeous field as well as a tree-lined path for those beautiful midwest days that I've come to love since moving here.
