Today, we’re featuring an artist who captures amazing imagery through photography! Christina, of Christina Walker Photography, has an incredible eye for capturing memories, nature, and Texas scenery. We love traveling the state through her photography and her prints will help bring a slice of the Lone Star State into your home. We can’t wait to share Christina’s art and story with you today!
Hi Christina! Thanks for sharing your story with us today! Can you tell everyone a little about yourself?
I was born in Florida and lived there until high school when my family moved to Virginia. I then decided to go to college in Texas and I have been in Dallas ever since! I fell in love with photography and art at a young age and continued pursuing this love in high school and college where I received a minor in Photography. I take photos of newborns and families in my free time and also focus on my art photography!
We love that you are following a lifelong passion for photography! Who inspires you?
I am inspired by so many photographers (both new and old), artists, my travels and love fashion/color theory but look up to my mom who is the person who taught me about art. I’ll also credit my dad who first put an SLR camera in my hand.
What a beautiful way to gain inspiration from your parents! Tell us about Christina Walker Photography! How did you get started?
My business is called Christina Walker Photography after me! I had brainstormed a lot of ideas but always came back to my name as simple as it is. After college, I needed to fill my creative void while working full time so I started taking photos for my friends and it grew from there. That was over 10 years ago and I have been taking photos ever since!
That’s awesome! We’re so glad you got started and that you’ve found MMC! Why did you get involved with MMC?
My friend and sorority sister, Taylor Crosby of Taylor Custer Jewelry, mentioned I should apply to be a Maker and she inspired me to put my prints out there! I love the community of MMC and the amazing support and mentorship that comes with it. It’s so fun to see my prints in store!
We’re so grateful for you and what you add to our community! What is your favorite part of your job?
That I get to take photos for people that capture a moment in time that they will cherish forever. Photographs are so special.
Agreed! You capture such beautiful moments that will last a lifetime! If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
The Amalfi coast in Italy! I would need to bring a lot of memory cards for all the pictures I would take!
We hope you make it to the Amalfi Coast someday soon! Can’t wait to see the photos you’ll take! Thank you for sharing your story with us today and for being a part of the MMC community!
