In the Spotlight: Christin Rose Photography

Who:  I would like to introduce you all to the fun and energetic Christin of Christin Rose Photography who also happens to be one of my best friends that I have known since I was 10.  Christin shot our awesome engagement photos last year, which was such a fun experience for both Matt and I!  Christin is an LA based photographer, but comes back home to her roots (Oregon) often to take photos.  We did a little Q&A...

Why did you become a photographer?
When I was 15 in Italy, I took a photo of an old couple laughing and eating ice cream on a bench.  When I got home and got the film developed, I thought, "oh my gosh, that is the sweetest thing, I wish I could give this to them!"  So I started taking photos of sweet moments and really never looked back.   When I've got my camera in hand - I'm the happiest.  It's the one thing that makes complete sense to me. 

Where do you find inspiration (what inspires you)?
The here and now.  Truth. Real-life love stories.  Everything that's happening at age 25 feels so fresh and exciting.  The new people, new places that I get to meet and see are what fuel me. I'm constantly ripping pages out of magazines and pulling bits of inspiration from my everyday life - I put it all in my "dream book"…so if I ever need inspiration, I just start flipping through that. 

What makes you smile?
My parents kitchen table.  Fleetwood Mac.  First Dances.  Going places I've never been before.  Rooftops, sunsets, convertible rides, acting like a kid, seeing my friends truly happy.

How would you describe your style? What makes you, YOU?
Haha, well it's definitely energetic.  It's a little wild even. :)  I don't take myself too seriously & that is all in hopes to make people comfortable and willing to just be themselves.  The best photos come when people let their guard down so I joke around a lot and try to make my clients smile and enjoy.  My photos are about happiness, laughter, & love...so my style as a person and a photographer strives to be just that. 

What direction do you see your company going?
It's crazy, building a business.  It's constantly evolving and taking on a life of it's own.  I see myself continuing to shoot weddings and lifestyle.  I want to be in peoples lives, tell their stories through photos…& well beyond that….we'll see! ; )
