My family and I booked a mini session with Christina at Rockwood Park. We were late and unprepared...as usual. Christina was a professional to the max and never batted an eye. She never rushed us and came prepared with props! We had a wonderful time walking through the park while Christina snapped away. We had a few posed pictures but most were candid and snapped on the fly. Every photo came out beautifully! Every. Single. One! I couldn't be happier with our session and CANNOT wait to schedule with Christina again.
Christina is a joy to work with and makes you feel very much at ease. She is excellent at what she does and captures expressions that most people cannot. You never feel rushed during a session and she takes the time to make sure you get as many poses as you want. I would highly recommend and I have recommended Christina to everyone I know to have their portraits taken with her, her work is just beautiful.

I've been blessed to work with Christina on a few occasions, and every time I am blown away by the amazing photos and skill she has! She's always pleasant to deal with, and she's more than happy to accomplish anything I ask her to! Thanks for always putting so much time & effort into everything you do, and always giving exceptional photos <3

I would highly recommend Christina Ridge! I challenged Christina with a hard task....just capture me! With no real direction, other than a few props and some cute outfits. I had just been through a life change and wanted to document me on film. She accepted the challenge and together we came up with some amazing shots. On a dusk morning (the day before Hurricane Sandy), she found the brightness and essence of me, and captured it. Her creativity in coming up with multiple settings as well as ideas for how I could pose was priceless. I did not once question how many photos she gave me, because the quality of them was so amazing, I couldn't imagine needing to see more!

Our family could not be happier with our photo session with Christina! From the time I booked the session until the delivery of my ordered prints, the experience was great. I had many questions prior to booking and also when ordering but I always received a prompt and professional response. The day of our shoot, Christina took the time to listen to my requests and also made suggestions for great shots for our family of five. I can honestly say that the first photo taken was as great as the last shot. I love how she was able to capture the children's personalities! I would recommend Christina Ridge to everyone looking for family photos that are affordable and awesome - cannot wait til our next photo session!
It's not easy to keep two little kids clean, happy and out of the dirt, so I was afraid I would be a sweaty mess from wrangling two little ones by the time we sat down for a family picture. Instead, Christina made the process fun. We were able to play as a family and she captured those sweet moments for us. Even our shy son took to her quickly. Rather than dreading our next family portrait session I am actually looking forward to what new ideas we will try next time!

Our family photo session was the best experience ever! When I first booked with Christina, we had the intention of just getting our daughter's first birthday pictures. But after talking with her we decided on getting family pictures taken (which we haven't done before). Our family includes me and my husband, 3 children, so without even saying it you can just think about my concerns. Christina was so amazing the children! They took right to her. She was very calm, relaxed and was having fun with them! She also took pictures of my husband and I, which was very important and meaningful since we don't have wedding pictures. She gave our family a wonderful morning and amazing pictures.

We have had multiple photo shoot done with Christina. From hot and humid to freezing in the snow. She is great with children and so patient! We found her a year ago and I can honestly say I will never have anyone else do our family photos except her. I have always loved and cherished every single picture she has taken of us. These are precious moments in our lives and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her prices are reasonable and her personality is awesome!!

We love our photos from Christina Ridge! We were concerned not only about getting 2 little ones to look at the camera (at the same time), but that they’re both pretty shy too. Christina did a great job, and was patient with us. The kids warmed up in no time! And, our photo order arrived earlier than expected. Can’t wait to take photos with her again!

Our photo shoot with Photography by Christina Ridge, was such a fun, laid back experience. I wasn't sure how it was going to work, with trying to get my toddler to sit still for more than 3 seconds to pose for the camera, but it turns out that the shots I loved most were of him roaming around doing his own thing. Christina has a way of capturing the sweetest moments, and has an incredible eye for color, as well as a knack for setting you up against the perfect backgrounds. You can tell by the care she puts into each and every photo, that she has a real passion for what she does. We are so happy with our pictures. I would highly recommend Photography by Christina Ridge to anyone for any occasion.
We had our second session with Christina and after only seeing a preview; I’m blown away once again by her talent and professionalism. Our usually happy two year old picked the morning of our session to have a melt down. Christina never once made us feel rushed and went out of her way to make sure we were able to get some great shots despite the circumstances. She is just as sweet as she is talented. I look forward to her capturing the years to come.

Christina is a pleasant and child friendly photographer who has captured beautiful images of the children in my family. Each time Christina photographs them, she is professional, polite, easy going, and extremely patient. Christina goes above and beyond to ensure a picture perfect memory for her clients to enjoy for years to come. Thank you Christina for every picture you have taken of my family and I can't wait until next time!

We used Christina 2 years ago when my daughter was born. We loved how laid back she was! I reached out to her to see if she would shoot us again and if she would travel a little further to our new home. She replied back immediately(which I love) and she said she would be happy to! Christina not only was professional, she also handled my son (crazy little man) wonderfully and spent as much time as we needed to get all the shots we wanted. We are excited to have her in our new home and to capture it the same way she did our last! Thank you Christina!
We had our family shooting with Christina last year at the Rockwood park. As a mother of two young kids, Christina absolutely knows how to approach and entertain my little one and capture invaluable moments of kids. We have printed some on canvas and put them in our living room. As our little one grows a lot throughout the year, we are looking forward to having our shooting this summer with Christina again!

Christina has captured so many amazing memories for my family over the last three years. She is so patient with all of my children and always captures the most incredible shots. She truly is an artist and it shows in her work. I am so thankful for all of the memories on my wall and we look forward to many more sessions.
