Welcome to Cristi Snapp Photography! I specialize in newborn, children, and family portrait and lifestyle photography in the central Kentucky area and I love to help my clients keep their beautiful memories! I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography and Midway University. I grew up in Nicholas County and I live with my wonderful family, our 4 pooches, 2 cats, and a bunny named Ernie. I love Star Wars, vegetables, and I have a mild obsession with unicorns.
specializing in maternity, newborn, families,& children
what to expect
I really love what I do, and I have a photojournalistic approach to photography. That means I'm not into a lot of strict posing. I love photographing children because they WON'T pose. You can expect me to try to make your session fun and to try to bring out you in your photos and not some stylized, Pinterest version of you.
Once the session is over, you will receive your images via online gallery in 2-3 weeks. You will be able to download the full-resolution files and/or order prints from your gallery.
scheduling a session
Outdoor sessions need to be scheduled before 10am and after 3pm for better lighting conditions. If you want the BEST lighting, schedule your session an hour or two after sunrise or an hour or two before sunset. If you are expecting a new addition to your family, contact me as soon as possible with your due date so I can a put reminder in my calendar. That way I can keep some time open for you. Newborn sessions are typically scheduled within the first 14 days after birth, when baby is still comfortable being folded into womb poses.
Appointments are required for all sessions and are made at least 2 weeks in advance. First time clients must pay a deposit. You will need to pay your deposit within the specified time frame to keep your appointment.
You may also book your session online, but all online bookings require a deposit.
