• Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Christina... a wife, a mommy of two gorgeous little ones, a dedicated (addicted) shopper and a baby & child portrait photographer located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    I specialize in newborn, baby & children's contemporary photography & I love what I do! My style as been described as part contemporary, part classic and part lifestyle. What could be better than capturing a moment and creating art that will be cherished for years to come?

    We were honored to be nominated in Nickelodeon's Parents Pick 2010 for Best Family Photographer in Minneapolis & St. Paul. We made the cut from 35 amazing local photographers to the top 5!

    chrissie marie photography is a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers & United Professional Portrait Association.

    Every year I promise to be better about "blogging" and well...I am still not very good. I have good intentions about posting more sessions, sharing my shopping finds, doing "what to wear" features but honestly balance is huge to me & rather than blogging I enjoy spending time with my family, enjoying life or being behind the camera! Maybe next year "blogging" will be a focus...maybe!

    Take a peak...leave some love & I can't wait to meet you & capture your life! xo

bellasaluti {baby & child photography} | photographer in minnesota

Hi! I would say happy Spring but I am pretty sure Minnesota has not received the memo that Spring should already be here?! I think as a trade it should be in the 70s until November… just saying!!

2013 has been a fun & busy start! Lots of sessions, busy making some changes to our site & how we do things! All very exciting! Our bellasaluti site has been down the past few weeks while we have been doing a re-design! I love the new style & feels it is a much better representation of our style, our work & vision! The site should be up again in the next day!! Yay!!

Since part of blogging is about pictures… here is a picture from a newborn session we had yesterday!! Love!! We are now booking summer & into fall!! info@bellasaluti.com to book your slot!! xx! Christina

It’s mid November & Thanksgiving is next week?! Where in the world did fall go?! Somehow we made it through our crazy fall rush & now we are just working on catching up. A huge sincere Thank you from the bottom of my heart to my amazing team… Anne, Molly & Cassie on getting us through fall!

For those that have open galleries please get in your orders within your 10 day ordering window. That ensures the workflow keeps moving & that when you place your order you get it as soon as possible! Thank you!

Anne is having her baby & we are so excited!! Her baby girl will be in the studio next week! Yay!

Here are a few peeks of some of the stinkin cute little ones that have some to see us this past week!! Have a wonderful week!! xo
