portraits of a photographer: christie mickelson
Meet Christie. Not only is she super fun, talented and a blast to be around, she is also a photographer in the tiny town I live in. I had randomly found her on Instagram shortly after I moved here from Vancouver Island, and after referring a client her way (because I was already booked that day) we instantly bonded. It took us a while to finally meet up in person due to busy schedules, but when we finally did, she was just as awesome -if not more- in real life as she was online.
We met up again last week to shoot for fun and took advantage of some yummy golden sunset light. It’s a little daunting to photograph fellow photographers, but those nerves were soon brought to ease once we began shooting. Christie, you were such a joy to photograph and I am so incredibly happy to call you a friend. I can’t wait for all the adventures ahead – she even invited me to second shoot a wedding with her next month and I just cannot wait!
Here are some of my faves from our time together…
Christie, gurrrrl…you are a STUNNER!
She also has the most incredible laugh…
