Born and raised in Houston, Texas.

I began my journey into digital portraiture in 2008. After working in Corporate America for over 7 years, I took the leap of faith in 2011 and started Christin Marie Photography.

As a mom and wife, I’m constantly kept busy (who isn’t!?). Our daughter is in the 1st grade and son is a high school freshman. My husband works for the Houston Astros, so we spend lots of time at the ballpark during baseball season.  I am the ultimate DOG-LUVAH and have 3 puppies: Max the Mini Schnauzer, Leila the Pomeranian, and Ari the Australian Shepherd.

Random things I like? Music wins over television any day. Romano’s Pizza on West Gray is the BEST.EVER. (trust me on this one).  I’m often a health-nut and enjoy cooking clean meals for my family and weightlifting. My all-time + favorite movie that I could play on repeat  is “When Harry Met Sally”.

Every Spring I participate in the RivALZ Blondes vs. Brunettes Houston flag football game. The past four years I have played for Team Brunettes in honor of my grandfather who lost his battle to Alzheimer’s many years ago.  RivALZ Houston is the largest game in the country – Spring 2017 , we raised over $300k for the Alzheimer’s Association.
