Chrissy Mazer | Minneapolis St Paul Photographer

"A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it."  Edward Steichen  

Minneapolis Headshot PhotographerI was born and raised in Central Arizona so don't be surprised if you catch me wearing a coat in 65 degree weather.  My family moved to the Twin Cities, Minnesota area in May of 2016 and we absolutely love it here!

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.
