Christie Brown | San Francisco Bay Area Family + Child Photographer bio picture
  • Hi there! I'm Christie, and thank you for stopping by! I am a lifestyle and portrait photographer serving the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Cruz County. You’ll find that my style is modern and fresh with a twist of sunshine, infused with vibrancy and sprinkled with that little thing we call LOVE.

    During our time together, I want to capture the laughter and real moments that you see daily and love about your children. When we meet, show me your heart, the joy and magic of your family. I can't wait to meet you!

bugs + butterflies photography

Hello Friends!

I am very excited to announce that I have now partnered with Bugs & Butterflies Photography, a beautiful studio in downtown Los Gatos! Bugs and Butterflies Photography specializes in maternity, newborn and child portraits.

After 5 years of owning my business, I wanted to continue to grow professionally, expand my work and take my art to the next level.

Michelle Tibbils, the studio owner of 8 years, focuses on portraits of babies, children and families. I will be focusing primarily on capturing outdoor family sessions.

Bugs & Butterflies Photography creates beautiful wall portraits and groupings to help warm your home in addition to offering beautiful keepsakes such as the Butterfly Box, a collection of your favorite session portraits inside a custom designed box. We create timeless legacies for our clients.

Please visit us on our website and like us on facebook!

lovely lake tahoe

Last week for spring break, we ventured up to Lake Tahoe. The piercing sound of silence that the lake gives is beautiful and breathtaking. The place is simply magical.

“The water is clearer than the air, and the air is the air that angels breathe.”
-Mark Twain (describing Tahoe)


spring has sprung

My lovely hairstylist referred Breanna to me, and after two reschedules due to rain, we finally set our date. It was certainly worth the wait, as we had one of the best sunsets of the year that evening. Her hair. Their love. This ridiculously amazing light? Just perfection. One of my favorite sessions to date!

happy new year

The new year is HERE! I am excited for what 2014 holds. I have an entirely new pricing guide, I will be supporting a friend’s new non-profit by hosting an event sometime this year, and I will also be offering “the mini split” this year (limited dates TBA). Keep checking my facebook page for the latest!

To my 2013 clients: Thank YOU for not only allowing me to do what I love so much, but for inviting me to be the one to capture your sweet families. I never take that invitation for granted and am always honored by it. I love, LOVE seeing all these babies growing up each year! Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your world.

Happy 2014, friends!
