My name is Cristina and i'm your Houston Heights Studio Photographer
Hello everyone! My name is Cristina Seal and I am your studio photographer, centrally located in the Sawyer Yards Arts District community in Houston, TX. I grew up way down south, in McAllen, TX, and have been in Houston since 2016. I enjoy all types of photography, but specialize in newborns, milestones & first birthdays and sweet littles.
That first year of life is just something that truly has my heart and I love working in my little space.
I'm a mom to two crazy girls that you'll see a lot of. They fill my world with daily deep belly laughs, sister drama and non-stop activity. I've got a fantastic hubby and i'm also a dog mom to our pandemic pup, June Bug. During the crazy year that was 2020, aside from all the unknowns, chaos ,and lockdowns we all went through, I was hit with a breast cancer diagnosis and my sub-type was not a nice one. It took up most of my energy for a good year and a half but I came out on the other side of it all with a clean bill of health and two new gals. I'm here for all the life-loving moments that get thrown my way and i'm so glad to continue to do what brings me the most joy: creating lasting memories for families.
Beyond being a photographer, I see myself as a storyteller of sorts. Anyone can take a picture of what your child looks like, but I revel in the moments of capturing who your child truly is. My sessions include a variety of posed and unposed shots and I always try to make room for self-expression. I also like to leave some decision making up to your littles, whether it be with a couple of poses, silly faces or even a prop or two.
It's easy to stress over so many parts of life, but there are always those fun, photo-worthy moments to cherish that will forever stand still once photographed. Families go through seasons and capturing these along the way is something I find to be so important. I aim for clients that embrace their seasons and want to freeze moments in time to look back on and share.
