Hello Gorgeous! My name is Christina. I’m a 30-something, hopeless romantic who loves dancing, friends and a great iTunes playlist. I have danced for 27 years, have three beautiful children and know all about your insecurities and the lies you have been forced to believe your whole life about how you aren’t good enough or pretty enough. I’m here to show you that you are meant for so much more than trying to live up to impossible beauty industry standards and that your beauty lies within! But the really cool thing about that whole “beauty on the inside” thing…when you truly believe it, you reach a level of outward beauty and sex appeal you never thought possible. Let me show you who you really are…it’s going to be amazing!
I have been wanting to do a boudoir shoot for a few years but couldn’t find a photographer I loved. Searching Instagram one evening I stumbled upon Christina’s site and fell in love with the composure of her photos! Christina was prompt with her correspondence while we worked to schedule an appointment and she had a hair and makeup gal to recommend. I had no idea who I was going to go to for hair/makeup so that was a huge relief! Leading up to our appointment, Christina was available via email and text to provide feedback on my outfit selections and confirmed my hair/makeup appointment (talk about a custom experience!). The morning of our shoot I knew I was in experienced hands and working with a quality team when the makeup artist mentioned certain tricks she uses when working with Christina, per her specific request, to ensure small details within the photos come out a certain way! I loved knowing, before I had even met Christina, that she was considering all the little details – that’s a quality I can relate to and absolutely love! Arriving on site, Christina blew me away with her warm and energetic aura! I was unsure if I would be bashful at all but I was pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the studio was. Christina has a natural way of creating a non-judgmental environment and bringing out your natural confidence and beauty! During my follow-up visit to pick photos, I couldn’t stop smiling! It was such a chore to narrow down my photo selections – I loved them all SO much! Don’t bother searching any further! You have found your boudoir photographer!!
I’m so glad I found Elle Division when I was looking for a boudoir photographer – I had looked all around the bay area but nothing compared to Christina’s work. Her studio is GORGEOUS and she knows exactly how to pose you to get stunning shots; just let her guide you and you’ll look natural and effortless! I was blown away when I saw my photos. It was such an eye-opening (and fun!) experience for me, I think everyone should do it at least once. I was nervous before my session but Christina is so sweet and funny that I felt comfortable from the start. I can’t wait to do it again! Thank you so so much Christina!!
So I had been wanting to do a shoot like this for a while but had no idea where to go and the thought of being in front of a camera made me so nervous. I found Christina through instagram and decided why not?! So I scheduled a shoot with her (SO GLAD I DID) and was super excited but still really nervous. The long awaited shoot day finally came and Christina immediately made me feel so so comfortable and made the shoot so much fun! I would 10/10 recommend her to anyone thinking of doing a boudoir shoot (or any shoot at all), she’s literally so awesome and SO great at what she does and I would do it again in a second!!
Christina is seriously AH-MAZING. 2018 was the first year I shot with her. My first shoot with her was for my college graduation and my second was a boudoir session. I cannot say enough how incredible Christina is to work with. I had absolutely no experience at all being in front of a camera but she made everything so easy, laugh out loud fun, and memorable! She told me exactly how to pose, where to angle my body literally head to toe, and how to get out of my comfort zone if I was holding back. My senior photos turned out utterly spectacular. So spectacular I booked my next session with her 6 months later. My boudoir session with her was completely empowering. She is so easy to feel comfortable around, even when you’re in lingerie, and she continuously gives you direction and confidence boosts throughout to keep you open and truly showing the incredible woman inside that we sometimes forget. All of her work is outstanding, but her boudoir is especially classy, and tasteful. Christina has helped capture truly pivots moments in my life, and memorialize them forever in the most beautiful photos. My next sessions with her will be my engagement and absolutely my wedding day. If you are looking for an incredible photographer with a rocking personality, utmost professionalism, and seriously top notch work, look no further. You’ve found her!
After hearing so many amazing things about Christina, I had to have her for my wedding and engagement photos! After having an absolute blast at our engagement session, I decided to do a boudoir session with Christina, as well. I am beyond happy that I decided to do it! I was so nervous at first, but her happiness and confidence is contagious and I instantly felt at ease as soon as we started taking photos. Christina is truly able to capture your inner and outer beauty!! I had such a hard time deciding which pictures to choose, and I never thought I would love so many photos of myself! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her and will be coming back for more photos in the future!! <3
There aren’t enough stars or thumbs up in the world to ‘rate’ Christina, not only as a professional photographer but as human being. Shooting with her makes you feel fearless, bold, seductive and outright sexy. She knows what poses are going to work best for you, and is very clear with directions as she goes through the poses with you! She makes you feel comfortable and by the time you’re done you want to walk to runway. I would recommend Christina a million times over! You won’t regret booking a boudoir session with her; it will be one of the most memorable things you do for yourself.
Where do I begin? This woman is an absolute magician at what she does. After going through a bit of a weight gain before my wedding, I had been feeling very down on my self-esteem and she COMPLETELY broke me out of my shell, made me bawl my eyes out explaining to me that she is capturing how HE sees me every day and made me feel like an absolute stunner! I was extremely upset that I didn’t get her for my wedding pictures because her quality, personality, ethic, and everything else you could imagine is off the charts wonderful. Christina holds a very special place in my heart for the positive body image she gave back to me, I cannot thank her enough for what she shared with me. I look at the pictures more than my husband does!
