I'm Cristy Becker, the lead photographer of CL Becker Photography. I specialize in family, children, and couture portrait photography and am based in Burlington, Ontario.
I've always been fascinated by images. I love how an image can tell a story, create an emotional response, or just document a moment in time. When I was 11 years old, I received a Polaroid camera for Christmas, and it quickly became one of my most cherished possessions. Over the years I went through many other cameras, and my family and friends all confirm that I was always the most likely to have a camera on hand if needed.
My interest in images led me to obtain a degree in Film Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara. I then spent over 15 years working in the film and television industry, both in California and Toronto. Studying movies helped me to understand the mechanics of how an image is created and how an image can provoke an emotional response.
I have always loved photography, so after my years of working in film production, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a professional photographer. After studying for several years, I launched CL Becker Photography in 2012. I truly love working with people and enjoy collaborating to produce images that reflect the spirit and personality of the subjects. My goal is always to provide my clients a relaxed, fun atmosphere that will bring out the best in people of all ages.
I'm a mom to three kids, a daughter and identical twin boys. They're my pride and joy. A public thank you to my kids for being such good sports when I say "There's amazing light, let's go do photos!".
I do hope to have the pleasure of working with you!
