A little about my story
I was your typical little bush kid who loved searching for stones, playing with the menagerie of farm animals, helping dad in the yard or mustering on the motor bikes. Thankfully I have married a wonderful cook as I was a bit of a tomboy and never really spent much time in the kitchen.
We spent our childhood on properties outside Tambo ,Mitchell and then Aramac.
We were primary School of The Air kids, and then started lots of long bus trips to boarding school at Downlands in Toowoomba.
When I finished high school in Toowoomba and not being entirely sure of what I wanted to do, I decided to travel and let it work itself out!
To cut a long story short, after an amazing two years of traveling through Europe and working as a nanny in London I returned to Australia for my brother’s wedding. After chatting with a careers adviser, I decided to apply to Queensland College of Art to study photography.
I spent the next four years rushing between full-time work and study, often until late in the night, but I had realsied my passion and would do anything to achieve this. In my final year of study I married my best friend Andy.
The next stage in my life was starting my business and having babies – at the same time! In 1996 Katrina Christ Photographer, was born!. The challenge of balance between starting a business and family was tricky, thank god for wonderful husbands.
In 2001 I decided to specialise in b/w family portraiture. All of my blood, sweat and tears paid off because the business took off.
We now have three gorgeous girls and two crazy dogs, and wonderful family and friends.
We are now 22 years on and still as passionate as ever about photographing families.
My challenge through all of this has been to maintain a healthy work life balance, which is why I work 4 days a week, try not to work weekends and evenings and play hockey to keep semi fit , and its a good laugh!
Thank you Thank you Thank you to all my gorgeous family and friends and a special thank you to my sensational team, love you lots!
