Scituate Family Photographer | Petite Sessions
I have another beautiful Holiday Petite Session to share with you all today! As a Scituate family photographer, I have photographed many Scituate families these past few years!

Frequently Asked Questions about Family Sessions
As a Scituate family photographer, I am used to getting many questions about family photo sessions! Here are some answers to your most pressing questions!
Will my session price include digital images?
Yes, all of my packages include printing rights to digital images, unless specifically specified! You’ll want to make sure that whoever you book as your photographer, that they include printing rights to all of your images. If you do not have printing rights to your images, you could even be sued by your photographer for displaying one of your photos in your social media!! Yikes! This is why I prefer to keep things simple and include printing rights in my price right off the bat!!
As a Scituate family photographer, what do you do if it rains on the date of my session?
If it rains on the date of your family session, we will reschedule of course! I can usually reschedule within a week or two of your original session date. I personally prefer to shoot on a sunny day for that beautiful glow, so I will even offer to reschedule if it is simply cloudy!
How much does a Scituate family photographer cost?
My packages range from $450-$625, depending on the length of session you would like and the number of images you would like in your gallery. You can view all of my packages HERE.
How do I book a session with you?

What time of year should I schedule my family photographs with a Scituate family photographer?
There are so many different ways to answer this! As a Scituate family photographer, I consider myself a bit of an expert here! For me personally, this year I chose to have my own family photos done in October because I wanted to do our photos during that beautiful “golden hour” right before sunset. However, I knew that timing would ONLY work with nap times/bedtimes if we did it at a time of year when sunset was later than nap time, but earlier than bedtime! If you have older children, you don’t have to worry about nap times/bedtimes so much, so you have much more flexibility with this which is so great. There also is no rule saying you HAVE to do your pictures right before sunset. In fact, I do many of my sessions for young families in the morning a few hours after sunrise! So in conclusion, I suppose my final answer is this: you can do your photos any time of year you’d like. If you want the “golden glow” and you have little ones, I’d choose late September or early October!
What Others Say About This Scituate Family Photographer
As a Scituate family photographer with over five years of experience, I have had the honor of photographing so many wonderful families! I love helping families plan their sessions, shooting the sessions, and editing my photos in my light and gorgeous signature style. However, the BEST part of my job is when I hear feedback from my amazing clients. Feedback like:
“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! We feel lucky to have found Christina and look forward to having her capture our precious milestones!“
“Navigating a pandemic while having our first child was a challenge, and I questioned whether to even do a newborn shoot. After several conversations, Christina came to our home and did a newborn shoot of our baby girl. She was beyond amazing! Christina was professional and made us feel very comfortable. I am so thankful to have the most beautiful photos of our baby! I highly recommend Christina!“

“Christina is amazing! My daughter wanted her senior pictures to be unique and had some ideas on settings. 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!“
“Christina’s talent and professionalism are unmatched, but it’s her patience and ease with our little ones that make her our absolute go-to 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!“
It Keeps Coming!
“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.“
“Christina is so sweet and personable, that taking photos with her seems so natural. She captures the pictures we want plus so much more. We cant wait for her to continue taking pictures of our family for years to come!“
“So grateful for our beautiful photo sessions with Christina! She captured the sweetest moments with my kids and took the most flattering photos ever of a very tired mama!!!“
“We’ve been using Christina for our family holiday photos every year and can’t imagine using anyone else! She makes us rag-tag bunch of Boston-ites look like models using some sort of magic we can’t figure out and our holiday photos are always perfect. You can’t go wrong!“
“My family is so happy with the newborn photos captured by Christina. The shoot was stressful for me being postpartum, juggling a newborn baby’s schedule, and chasing after a two year old – all while trying to still look nice for the photos. But Christina being a mother herself, helped us wrangle our energetic two year old and managed to capture the most beautiful family photos. We loved her work so much, we enlisted her skills again recently for Christmas photos. We look forward to continue working with her as our family grows.“
?Christina has been taking photos of my family since the beginning. Starting with sunrise maternity photos at 5am and most recently family holiday photos with my VERY active toddler. Being a mom she knows exactly how to capture amazing shots of little ones who can’t sit still. She has an amazing ability to make everyone feel at ease and above all the photos come out absolutely phenomenal. You won’t regret going with Christina!“
“Christina is a wonderful photographer! She did my daughter’s senior pictures and they were so good I set up a session for my other daughter. Christina is fun, easygoing, and just a very nice person. The quality of her pictures are amazing.“

“Christina came to our home to shoot maternity photos and did an amazing job capturing such special moments in our family’s life! Christina has the ability to make you feel like you’ve known her forever and therefore all of her photos come out looking so beautifully natural! We can’t recommend her enough as your family photographer!“
“If you live on the South Shore, and want some professional family, engagement, newborn, graduation (insert reason for photos here), look no further than Christina Runnals! Christina lives locally with her husband and 2 boys, and knows all the best local photography spots. And she’s great with children. We did a family shoot at Turkey Hill with our 3-year old and (then) 6-month old. My 3-year old was “onto donuts”, but Christina did an excellent job of keeping them engaged & interested, and the finished product was the best photos we have of our family. I recommend Christina enthusiastically, and look forward to our next shoot!“
Why Book a Scituate Family Photographer

Many families arrive at their session a little nervous, which is totally normal! But have no fear, as an experienced Scituate family photographer, I am highly trained in posing your whole family to look their 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! We will play games and capture many beautiful candid moments, which are my absolute favorite.
2. An Experienced Scituate Family Photographer
When choosing a Scituate family 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!
3. Fast and Reliable Service
One of my claims to fame is how quickly I deliver my photos to my clients! You will receive your photos within three weeks, but often times I am able to return them to you within a single week!! My editing process is quick, because I am trained to take photos that hardly need to be edited in the first place!
