I photograph business owners, families, children Tuesdays to Fridays, and the some Saturdays.
From Sept through June, two mornings a week, you can find me surrounded by small children, that call me, by a variation of my childhood name, "Miss Chrissy". I have a camera in my hand, as I teach and take daily photographs at my own preschool, called "Playtography". I create a custom photo album for each parent, by capturing how their child is learning and growing, through their year. Playtography runs Monday and Wednesday only, so I can be available on other days to create and preserve quality keepsakes for you!
Sundays are reserved for the Sabbath Day, and spending time with my family.
"My son just finished his last year of preschool with Miss Chrissy. He attended the Playtography preschool when he was 3, and again this year. My son absolutely LOVES Miss Chrissy. He often tells me that she is his best friend and how much fun she is. And when you drop your child off, it’s a place you wish you could stay and play at too. She is so creative and has different themes every single day. You never know if you are walking into a super market, a vet hospital or a bear cave. She puts so much imagination into helping the children learn a concept, I’m always awestruck. She even brings in experts related to theme to further help the children’s development and understanding. I particularly love how she sends live or still video or pictures from the day, and the personalized professional photo book she gives at the end of the year that captures all the great adventures and things my child learned that year. What a wonderful keepsake! We love Miss Chrissy so much my middle child and nephew are registered for her class next year. I highly recommend Miss Chrissy and her Playtography preschool!" -Bonnie Parker (no relation) Calgary, Alberta
I am always up for an adventure, especially if it involves driving across America, or on a roller coaster at DisneyWorld. I made my Bucket List #1. Driving Across America, from Calgary, Alberta to New Jersey, USA. with 2 teenagers and my mom! 5 weeks, 19 States, and 3 Provinces.
I love the warm spring wind, rainy days, and puddles to jump in unexpectedly, especially if holding a child's hand!
I love serving the world by fundraising through photography that will especially benefit children and families.
I enjoy the indulgence of a hot bath, just for the chance to warm up and read a good book...I always have a book on the go, as I usually end up falling asleep in the tub.
I am a wife to my super supportive and marathoner husband Mike, and a mom to our four children, and one daughter in love.
My photography style is playful, with natural expressions and connections. I also have candy for incentives, if allowed, of course!!
