Christy Hendrickson / Western Loudoun, VA

Hi I’m Christy! I fell in love photography after I had my first child and realized that buying a “fancy” camera and learning to use it was more economical than hiring someone for every time I would want pictures taken. After numerous DSLR classes and practice over a decade with now 5 kids, capturing those sweet moments are still one of my favorite things to do.

I am a licensed teacher in Western Loudoun. My background as an educator helps me take a fun and organized approach to photography education. One highlights of being a photographer was getting the opportunity to photograph Miss America! When I’m not teaching middle school Family and Consumer sciences, you can find me running around with the kids, painting, gardening or starting another house project.

My first Momtography Club meeting changed everything and I knew I needed to be a part of this! As a mom of many, I was like many others that have that feeling of losing myself and my own passions. Momtography helped find my tribe of other like minded ladies and our passion for photography. I lead a monthly lunch Club meeting in western Loudoun – Can’t wait for you to join me!
