Christina was born in San Francisco, and currently resides in Gilroy with her husband and cat. Her life consists of long walks, kitty cuddles, photographing, and traveling the world to visit non-profit organizations with Sam. They are expecting their first child in January 2018 and they're thrilled for the adventure of parenthood to come.
Jesus has changed the trajectory of her life, and He is one of the reasons Christina places such a high value on photographing weddings and families. She has experienced God's grace and love in her life in amazing ways.
Christina has a B.A. in Professional Photography. She has been photographing portraits and weddings in the Gilroy area and beyond since 2008, starting Whittaker Portraits in 2010. Her style is natural, emotive, and modern, with hints of fine art and an air of traditional portraiture throughout. She's passionate about photographing her clients in a way that will accurately preserve their memories and create heirlooms for generations to come.
Michaela + Ed are now a family of three with baby Alessandro. Here he is, at two months old. Just the cutest little baby!
Caught him in the middle of a sneeze, haha! Baby sneezes are just too cute.
