"We hired Christina for a newborn shoot. I booked her when I was still pregnant and was nervous I’d be too tired, too sore and not in the mood to take pictures but I am so glad we did it!!! Christina was amazing, professional & so sweet. Our son was good most of the shoot but when he began to get fussy she swaddled him perfectly and settled him down. She takes amazing care of your newborn, is so patient (let me feed him during the shoot as well), and her pictures are absolutely stunning! The perfect bright & airy keepsakes I always wanted. I’ve already booked her for a Holiday session as well!"

"Christina is truly the best! I have worked with several photographers in Massachusetts and feel as though I finally struck gold! There is no doubt that we will continue to use Christina as our photographer for years to come. She has such a tender way with children that my kids warmed up instantly, and knew how to keep the time for the shoot managed while also being patient and allowing my kids to explore and take breaks as needed. Christina had tricks up her sleeve to reign in a distracted toddler. She also had such creative ideas for unique, fresh family photos. Nothing felt staged, it all felt so natural and beautiful. She captured so many lovely shots that we will cherish for a lifetime!" -Brianna

One of my claims to fame is how quickly I deliver my photos to my South Shore photography clients! You will receive your photos within three weeks, but often times I am able to return them to you within a single week!! I am trained to take photos that hardly need to be edited! Because of this, my editing process is very quick!
When choosing a South Shore photographer, you should definitely seek out a photographer with experience and training! An experience photographer will have professional gear. An experienced photographer will also edit your pictures with high-end editing software. An experienced photographer will also know how to control light, so that your photos do not appear hazy or as if they have a strange filter on them!
Many people arrive at their session a little nervous, which is totally normal! But have no fear, because as an experienced South Shore photographer, I will pose you and your whole family to look your absolute best. I will give you guidance throughout our entire shoot, trust me! We will not only take posed, “smiling at the camera shots." In fact, if you have little children, we will probably only take a few of those! It will be relaxed and we will capture many beautiful candid moments, which are my absolute favorite.
The light and airy photography style is highly specialized. This style gives your pictures a luxurious and high-end look. Furthermore, the light and airy style gives your skin a beautiful and flawless glow! This style also allows your pictures to look more "true to life" than many other styles of photography. As a South Shore photographer who specializes in light and airy photography, I would be happy to answer any questions you have about the style. To ask questions or contact me, simply email me!

Navigating a pandemic while having our first child was a challenge, and I questioned whether to even do a newborn shoot.

Christina was wonderful in the brainstorming process to figure out best locations, scheduling and day of adding some "props" to make it personal and reflect my daughter's vision. The session was so fun for my daughter and the end products far exceeded our expectations. Christina is so talented and has an amazing artistic eye. She captured my daughter beautifully. So many choices it was hard to pick the "one" for the yearbook. I highly recommend Christina Runnals Photography! -Amy K.

Christina is an amazing photographer! She made our daughter's senior photo shoot a truly magical experience resulting in absolutely beautiful photos! I highly recommend her! -Michelle D.
Our family has worked with Christina for the past few years and we are so thrilled to have found her! Her talent and professionalism are unmatched, but it’s her patience and ease with our little ones that make her our absolute go-to South Shore photographer. She works some kind of magic, managing to capture the moments of snuggles with our busy, wiggly infant and the big personality and silliness of our sweet 4 year old. Christina photographed our daughter and her older cousins two summers ago, our newborn son this past early March, and then our family for holiday photos in late November, and as a mom, there’s just something so special in knowing that she has been with us along for the ride as our family grows. I cannot recommend Christina enough and rave about her to anyone who is in search of a wonderful photographer! -Katie K.
Christina is the BEST photographer. Her photos are always absolutely gorgeous! She makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed so they look their best. I’ve used Christina multiple times for different occasions and every time I’m so impressed with the photos. Every single shot is frame-worthy. -Kelly L.
Christina was AMAZING! The pictures came out AMAZING! She was professional and she was able to connect with all of us! I have been waiting to get a full family photo and it was worth the wait! She even captured my puppy at his best moments!!! I would highly recommend her for any and all photo shoots! I look forward to senior portraits up next! -Dawn Q.
Christina is a rare gem! Being a photographer myself and also new to the area, I was super picky about who I wanted to do our family shoot. I kept seeing Christina's beautiful images on social media and I knew she was the one! Not only did she give me the gift of having beautiful memories of my family she is the most kind, warm and patient person. She's the type of person where you feel like you've been friends for years yet just met. She cares an incredible amount about her work and has such a passion for capturing beautiful light filled candid moments.
Christina even scouted the location for our shoot beforehand and had a plan to ensure the best possible light and made it so easy for us! I highly recommend Christina a thousand times over, you won't be disappointed! We feel lucky to have found her and look forward to having Christina capture our precious milestones! -Jackie A.
Christina is the absolute BEST! It is clear that she loves what she does and makes each session so fun and feel so natural. I cannot get over how amazing all of our sessions come out. Truly the best out there. -Cassandra C.
My two children surprised us with a beautiful canvas from a secret photo shoot with the amazing, talented Christina Runnals. Christina also shot Megan’s senior portraits last year. I cannot believe they pulled this shoot off back in the fall without me knowing. All of the photos are gorgeous. All I ever want is for the kids to smile and Christina captured them perfectly!! Thank you Christina!! -Tara F.
Christina’s photos are truly works of art! She captures so much magic behind her lens and makes the process seem effortless. Christina knows how to work with families, whether it’s a rambunctious toddler, a mom striving for the “perfect angle” or a husband that was handed an outfit that morning and dragged to the photo shoot to just get “one good family photo.”Interacting with children comes as a second nature to Christina, which makes it so much easier on parents. There is elegance about Christina’s photos that make her photos suitable for much more than just another page in a picture album. We’ve framed several of Christina’s photos because they’re too beautiful not to share. To our surprise, there were so many great photos to choose from. It’s nice to have choices! My favorite part about Christina is that she wants all of her clients to look and feel their absolute best. Her styling tips were so helpful and honest. Christina takes pride in her work. Thank you, Christina! We are so grateful to have you as our family photographer! -Jess F.
