Why Choose Christina

“Christina Claus is hands down the best photographer in the Niagara Region!  We have used her for both of our children (with Maternity photo shoots too) and have never been anything but blown away with her and her work.  The way that she can interact with the children and handle newborns is beyond amazing. You would be crazy not to book with her!”

– Kathleen Jabs

“Christina is the most talented newborn photographer I have ever come across.  Her work is truly art, and the pictures are beautiful and classic, not tacky at all like some newborn pictures!  She is also the most patient person I have ever met, she is truly a baby whisperer and it’s amazing to watch her work the babes into the poses that she does.  She has captured both of my children when they were small, and those photos are keepsakes that our family will cherish forever!  I recommend her to everyone I know who is having a baby; your little ones are only that small once and having her capture them is really an investment that is SO worth it!!!”

– Amanda Adam

“Christina is without a doubt the best there is if you are looking for a photographer to capture any of the very precious moments in your family’s life.  She has truly been blessed with a wonderful gift as the images she captures are full of genuine emotion and breathtaking in their beauty.  It is obvious that she loves what she does and was meant to do it, after watching her photograph our newborn baby girl.  She is gentle, patient and often gets lost in the beauty of her own work.  We look forward to having Christina photograph our family as it grows.”

“I cannot say enough great things about Christina Claus and her fabulous work!  Her photography speaks for itself but it is also her warmth and personality that we were so thankful for during our newborn lifestyle session.  Christina has a calm and peaceful presence which instantly makes you feel so comfortable and at ease.  Her grace, patience and kindness towards both of my daughters during the photoshoot was so genuine, you can tell Christina truly loves what she does.  We feel very blessed to have these photographs that took place in our own home; where our family began.  Not only did Christina capture special moments of us with our newborn daughter, but also the interactions between us as a family of four.  Because of the way they are captured, we will always feel like we can step back into those precious days, snuggled in our bed with our sweet newborn babies.  Christina gave us the greatest lasting gift – the most natural, beautiful photographs that captured the moments, love and very essence of our new family.  We are forever grateful!!”

– Matt & Robin Veenendaal

“Our experience with Christina was absolutely wonderful.  She makes you feel very comfortable right from the start.  She is kind and has the patience of a Saint!  She literally will sweat over your baby until she gets the right shots.  She worked with my family tirelessly in a 90 degree room while she was 9 months pregnant.  A perfect example of how dedicated and passionate she is about her product.  In addition, she was very hospitable offering snacks and drinks and allowing me to use her family room so that I could have a comfortable place to nurse my baby.  I have recommended Christina to many people and will continue to do so.  Please consider her for all your family photography.  You will not be disappointed!”

“I had been following Christina’s work for years, dreaming of the day when it would be MY baby in those photos … well the day came, and the pictures of my little princess turned out better than I could have ever asked for.  Christina truly did an amazing job, and there is no one I would recommend more than her!  Being a first time Mom, I was a little nervous before the photo shoot, not knowing if my newborn would cooperate or not … I was stressed with making sure everything went okay.  Christina was extremely patient and so re-assuring.  She made me feel comfortable, and was willing to do whatever it took to get amazing shots of my little peanut!!  I honestly could not be happier with how they turned out!!  Christina Claus is hands down the best baby photographer out there!!”

We used Christina for our baby photos for our new daughter and we could not have been happier with the results!  She was very easy to work with and extremely flexible when working with our family.  She has an endless supply of props and staging materials and always has a lot of good suggestions of poses.  One of our favourite photos came from her impromptu suggestion to dangle my son over our daughter so that he could lay his head on her!  Great stuff!

– Chris Heikoop

“Christina photographed our daughter when she was 6 days old at our home.  She was down to earth, professional and very easy to work with.  She was extremely patient with our baby and obviously very comfortable working with newborns to ensure that she gets the best photos.  We ordered prints from Christina which arrived very quickly.  We are extremely satisfied with the quality of photos and services she provided to our family. We would highly recommend her to all of our family and friends.  Thanks Christina!!”

– Brianne Freiwat

“Christina did such an amazing job for my maternity and newborn sessions.  The location she chose for the maternity shots was stunning and made for GORGEOUS pictures.  She was fun, professional and made us feel very comfortable.  When the time came for our newborn session she brought a TON of different props and outfits to my house and set herself up in no time.  She was very patient with my son and knew just how to keep him calm and posed to get the great shots.  She was also flexible with a bunch of shots we wanted to get of our son on a snowboard which turned out to be some of our favorites.  All in all I would recommend her to anyone and have already.  She is professional and fun and very prompt on replying and responding to any of your needs or concerns.”

– Alicia Sferazza

“Christina is the ‘baby whisperer’!  Great session and gorgeous photos.”

– Carilynne Yarascavitch

“When we decided to have newborn photos taken of our daughter, Eloise, we spent a lot of time checking out the local photography scene.  After several uninspiring emails/phone conversations with potential photographers, we received a response from Christina. What impressed us the most was her enthusiasm about her line of work. She was genuinely excited to discuss ideas and better understand our vision, and she always responded promptly to any emails we sent.

On the day of the photography session, we were amazed at the arsenal of cutsie props and backdrops that she brought with her. As any mother of a newborn can attest, anything that takes the thought and planning out of your hands in those first weeks is a welcome thing. We literally did not have do anything. Christina brought so many adorable accessories that we couldn’t possibly use them all! Also, the backdrops and props she brought were stunning. Several friends and family members couldn’t believe the photo session took place in our house. The layouts she created looked amazing!

We would highly recommend Christina Claus Photography to anyone looking to have photos taken of their young children. She has a wonderful demeanour that puts them at ease…she even managed to get our 19 month old to pose for some pictures with his new baby sister. Overall, Christina was prompt, professional and a joy to work with.”

– Lorne & Erika

“Almost immediately after finding out we were pregnant with our second child, we knew we wanted to book Christina for a newborn session when our new baby arrived. We were so pleased with the photographs she took of our first daughter 2 years earlier, there wasn’t a doubt we would be just as satisifed the second time around. The luxury of being able to do the session in our own home helped provide a relaxed and calm experience, as did Christinas’ gentle demeanor and timely patience…especially with our spunky toddler  😉  Thank you Christina for giving us such precious images that we will treasure for a lifetime.”

– Will & Jodi Thompson

“Christina is an incredibly talented photographer.  She did our maternity and newborn pictures and we were so happy with how everything turned out.  She has this way of capturing the most amazing angles and poses with different focuses and perspectives that result in a very creative, one-of-a-kind finished product with just the right amount of touch-ups and editing.  We were so impressed with her natural ability with newborns – the way she can so gently, patiently, and lovingly “contort” and position babies to get the most adorable poses… and newborns love her too!  Our daughter didn’t even wake up in the several hours that Christina moved her about and the pictures captured this peacefulness.  Christina has a quiet confidence about her that makes working with her a joy – she always accommodates the client and provides a most professional experience and final product.  I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone that is interested in nothing but the best in the way of a beautiful keepsake of this amazing time in life!”

– Josh & Colleen

“Christina did a fantastic job taking pictures of first our son and then a year and a half later, our daughter.  She came prepared with so many props and ideas to work with.  We appreciated her kindness and patience with us as we worked together to capture some amazing moments.  We highly recommend her creative talents to anyone!”

– Brad & Christine Morgan

“Christina did our maternity and newborn pictures and the whole experience was great, our pictures turned out beautifully, that we couldn’t pick and choose, we had to buy them all.  She is not only an amazing photographer but she works well with what she has, especially when your baby wont sleep when he’s suppose too – haha.  I would definitely recommend her for pictures :)”

– Leah Batchelor

“It is my pleasure to recommend Christina Claus Photography.  Christina’s gentle nature and undying patience with my son was so greatly appreciated.Christina not only captured several traditional family portraits, but she also managed to capture the intimate interactions of me, my husband and son as well.  Christina’s professional approach combined with the superb colour and clarity quality of her images made Christina Claus Photography the perfect choice in photographers for my family!”

– Andrea

“I’m so happy with the pictures that Christina took of my family.  Everybody just loves them!  She did an amazing job.  She was very professional and also very patient!  The photo session took a little longer than expected because my newborn daughter just would not go to sleep.  But Christina waited for a whole 2 hours!  She was so understanding.  I guess it’s because she’s a mom too, and she knows exactly how unpredictable babies can be sometimes.  All the pictures turned out great.  I would definitely recommend her.  She was able to capture a beautiful moment in time for us, one that we will always have and be able to look back on.”

– Melannie

“My husband and I both enjoyed both of our sessions with Christina.  Our maternity shots were stunning and we loved how she captured these moments before our daughter arrived.  When she came for our newborn session, Christina was well prepared and it was so amazing to see her creating such special moments.  The photos turned out so well it was hard to pick a favourite, we love them all!  Christina was very professional and did such an amazing job!  We would recommend her to anyone looking for newborn shots!”

– Clementine Bugeja-Fortis

“I am so glad I brought my baby girl to Christina for her newborn photoshoot. She is a very talented photographer and makes your experience extra special. Thanks to her I now have beautiful photos of my little girl that I can cherish forever ”

– Emily

“We had a really amazing experience having Christina do our newborn session.  She’s a baby whisperer.  She knows how to handle newborns with very good care.  Her pictures are timeless.  Our family shots and newborn pictures turned out so great.  She is very professional in terms of photography, taking care of newborns/babies, helping us positioning ourselves for the pictures, and helping us to relax while taking the pictures.  After our photo session, we received our slide show online within 2 weeks.  Now we’ll have all these joyful memories captures in the pictures forever.”

– Janice Dodd 

“Loved every moment I spent with Christina, she did an amazing job getting great shots of my newborn and wrangling my toddler in a few pics.  What makes me most happy though is the pictures she got of me with my daughter, only 4 days post op I wasn’t feeling my best and yet the pictures she took make me look beautiful and happy.  Babies are always adorable, and men look good no matter what they do (so unfair) but we as women who have just had babies who are aware that our body has changed who may not be feeling that we look our best, well getting shots of us that make us happy that make us feel beautiful again, that is a challenge that Christina met and excelled with.  I love all the pictures but the special ones of me and my daughter will always be my favourites. Thank you Christina for your patience, your vision, your caring and your talent, but thank you most of all for making me look and feel beautiful so that I can exist in pictures for my children.”
