Lisa Christianson Photography | About


My style is fresh, elegant, and fun. I'm a family life photographer, photographing everything from newborns to families. Having three children of my own I know how fast time really flies and photography is a way to capture those wonderful moments. I hold these memories very close to my heart for my family and I strive to give families the same memories that I want for my own; a story about relationships, love, laughter, genuine smiles, and thoughtful moments. Photographs are a family’s story; moments captured in a way that no other medium does. Photographs are timeless, priceless, and a wonderful way to hold on to those memories forever.

I use both natural and studio lighting and have been creating portraits since 2009. I have been a member of the Professional Photographers of America since 2011. I'm active in the fine art and fashion communities as well as the family portraiture and newborn communities. I'm a jury member and moderator in modeling/ photographer/ MUA forums, helping to mentor and keep the aspects of fine art alive. My beauty work has been published in Elegant Magazine. 



I am a mother to three very fun children and my wonderful husband is my biggest supporter. I enjoy being very active in life. My family is my number one hobby and after that the list goes on. Indoors I love to read and I’m a sucker for arts and crafts. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and Friday night is family movie night. Outdoors my kids and I like to garden. I have a flower and a vegetable garden. I love to run and’s my thinking time. 

Looking into my background, I was raised in the little town of Sebastopol, California. I served in the United States Army for 11 years as a Nutrition Care Specialist. I served at duty stations such as Ft. Carson CO, Landstuhl Germany, Ft. Lewis WA, and served on deployments to Kuwait and Iraq. I’ve traveled to countries all over the world and have very much enjoyed learning about different cultures. I received my BFA in Photography from The Arts Institutes International MN where I graduated with highest honors.
