The Embodiment Experience
“The photoshoot with Cristina was life-changing! I felt like the goddess self that I only dream of being — because of Cristina’s presence and photographic gaze. She is beyond supportive — she makes you feel divine and beautiful during the actual shoot — even before you see the amazing photos! After a few difficult years for me, health-wise, where I was struggling with some anxiety issues, this photoshoot was better than therapy — it was a healing somatic experience in itself. I felt transformed by the day we had together! I think anyone who goes into a shoot with Cristina should do so with the intention to be fully present, to be free to be led by her into a version of you that you forgot about! And the photos were incredible, I wanted them all!! They connect me to the magic of that day every time I use them. Thank you so much, Cristina, for your vision, your love, your guidance, your gentle support & your beautiful work. You helped me find myself again after years of hiding. 🤍

My name is Cristina and I am a portrait photographer. I’ve learned through the years that photographing the lives and hearts of women runs so much deeper than just getting your picture taken. It’s an emotional experience, one that exposes vulnerabilities, but all the while empowers and uplifts. It’s an experience I want every women to have. One where she realises her beauty is unmistakable and the role that she plays in this world is both irreplaceable and imperative. My promise to you is that once you step in front of my camera, this will happen. And it’s an experience you won’t forget.
I look forward to seeing you in my studio.

"I was overwhelmed with the posing and smiling, but after a while I was really enjoying the fact to be in the spotlight."
"Everybody should do that to pamper yourself for one day. I had the pleasure to do it with 2 good friends and that was the best experience at all. To share these moments together and discussing the impressions we made back and forth was really great."

During my experience with Cristina, I was a bit shy in the beginning and felt quite insecure, but she created a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere so that I could just be myself without any artificial postures and facial expressions.

"I really enjoyed the day at your "studio" with getting styled and put into poses how I had never done before. So it was a very special experience of feeling beautiful and discovering new facettes of myself."
