Christine is a lifestyle, wedding and portrait photographer based in Canberra who is very partial to the use of the smiley face :).  She can often be found Instagram-ing her one-year old sidekick, daughter Pippa, who is a happy little dream.

1. What is your favourite time of day to shoot and why?

Around 3pm… we have a massive backyard and we’ve only just begun gardening and spending a lot of time out there… 3pm is when pippa is most energetic, having had a long nap and big snack, and we’re outside watering our veggies and fruits! 🙂

2. What lens do you use most often to photograph Pippa and why?

My 24mm. i can’t seem to get close enough! ha! i love that i am experiencing everything with her, and i’m able to concentrate on shooting while also having one hand on her in case she falls over on the steps or off her chair, or whatever else she’s climbing! 🙂

3. How do you present/store/display your family photos?

I adore albums and books. i have about 12 books of our family adventures, from even before pippa came into our lives! clinton and i love books and adding to our little library, so it makes sense that all our pics are in book form as well! 🙂 I use Vision Art mainly for my albums.

4. Which photo of Pippa (taken by you) is your absolute fave?

Hard to narrow it down but i suppose if i had to pick one, it would be the one above of her painting 🙂
