Hi. My name is Christina and I’m a story-teller.
Sometimes I tell stories through words, sometimes through photographs and sometimes with those magazine collages we all made in elementary school.
And sometimes I joke.
I’ve been blogging since 2006 and still love it. My internet-home has always been Not a Local, but you can also find me over at The Camera Phone Diaries and Belong to the Day. And on Facebook. And Twitter. And Etsy.
Most importantly, I am a disciple of Christ. I love Jesus and everything that comes with Him. My constant passion and pursuit is to be more like Him in thought, word and deed. I also love people. Yep. I’m an extrovert. I love to learn and watch people learn. I love progress. I love reconciliation. I love the word reconciliation. Then there are the things that make me a nerd: rock climbing, crafting, photography, and Charles Dickens.
Professionally, I was a graphic designer and photographer. I went to school for music production and television production and after college I taught myself graphic design and photography (thank you, Mr. Internet). I fell in love and couldn’t think of doing anything else professionally. That is, until I became a mom. Now everything that I loved before has become a hobby.
I unofficially started up Belong to the Day Photography back in October 2005 when I agreed to shoot my first wedding. Since then, my camera has met families, brides, friends, children and landscapes all over the globe. I feel incredibly privileged and honored with every subject I encounter and hope that is communicated in my work.
Currently, I work as a Home Engineer with a focus on Breastfeeding. I promise not to blog about the latter.
