Capturing your most precious moments to cherish for a lifetime

Newborn, Children, Family & Senior Photographer located in Wallingford, Connecticut 





Let’s capture the magic

As your photographer, my goal is to provide you a warm, cozy, friendly session, capturing the details of your life and have fun while doing so. "The days are long but the years are fast". When I first became a mother, was when I really realized how true that statement was. The love you have for your child is the most amazing love ever. There is nothing more amazing and wonderful, then that new baby, that adorable toddler, the curious child or that independent teen. Photography is a way to pause that time and capture that moment forever for generations to come.  

I am a photographer, located in Wallingford, CT, who specializes in newborn, children, maternity, family and senior photography. Newborn photography though, is my love and my passion. Nothing is sweeter than that new little love, that sweet new baby smell, those little rolls, tiny toes and those darling little smiles. 

I'm Christy, the owner of Christy Mitchell Photography, and I'm so glad to have you here. 

Let me document your life-your beautiful moments and the realness you want to remember! 

Life is beautiful. Count your blessings, and let me capture the special moments!

Patience is key when photographing newborns & children. With my newborn sessions, I provide a very calming atmosphere so we are able to capture those beautiful natural photos. Little ones, let’s face it, they sometimes don’t want to sit, they want to get up and explore, they want to run and play! That’s ok. At my sessions, I take the lead from your littles. If they want to run, and play, then that’s what we will do and capture them doing what littles do best, having fun! I will capture both posed and candid moments during your session.
