The only Victoria-based photographer to offer portrait sessions on authentic analog film
I’ve developed some tried-and-true secret recipes to help even the most camera-shy people feel at ease in front of the camera. Each portrait session is designed to create something that truly represents you and the people you love. My inspiration is anything that makes your heart sing. I photograph families of all ages in Victoria, Vancouver and Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.
“To the one and only Christina Craft: once again CRUSHING our annual Family photo sesh. Word’s cannot describe how much I value having these done – we spent hours last night looking through our past sessions, and watching our family grow (and multiply!). You have a true talent for capturing our personalities in a way I’ve never seen in pictures before.”
Family Portrait Photographer Victoria, Vancouver & Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
I’m so glad you’re here! My custom approach to portrait photography is a little bit different than what you may have seen from other studios. I’ve designed an effortless way for you to preserve your memories for generations to come. It’s going to feel so good when your artwork is on display in your home, or when your children ask to look through their storybook album one more time (they even have a museum-grade coating to protect them from sticky hands).
How does it work?
The only thing you need to do is be your beautiful selves and I’ll take care of the rest. When your preview photographs are ready I’ll come by your home (or we will video conference) and we can decide what prints will look best on display or in a storybook album.
You will love it when your photographs are already framed, matted, laid out and sized perfectly for *your* space. And if you’re excited to share your memories on social media, you’ll also receive digital copies of everything you choose to have printed.
Where are you located? Do you travel for portrait sessions?
I am based in Victoria, BC and I frequently travel throughout Vancouver and Vancouver Island for portrait sessions. I also spend a few months every winter in beautiful Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica and I’m available for portraits of you and your family enjoying your vacation in the jungle or at the beach.
I’m a professional photographer in Victoria and Costa Rica, Canada specializing in maternity, natural newborn, candid and fine-art child and family portraits. I also photograph fashion portfolios and glamour portraits. I believe printed photos are one of the most important gifts you can pass down to your family. During our portrait session, we will work together to make images that highlight your family’s love and connection. I want you to be THRILLED with your portraits and that’s why I put my heart and soul into creating one-of-a-kind photographs you’ll cherish forever.
Have your portraits in your home, on location or in my beautiful natural-light studio loft in downtown Victoria. I also offer hair and makeup services. You can have custom canvases, framed giclee prints and beautiful heirloom albums created.
