South Orange County Portrait Photographer

Hello, and welcome to my site!  My name is Christine Ziff and I am a Lifestyle Portrait Photographer living in South Orange County, CA with my wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and cute little Bichon.

Being a Lifestyle Photography is all about capturing those special moments. Those that are not posed or planned but occur naturally.  To me, these candid images are priceless as they tend to reveal ones true personality that sometimes gets lost when posing for the camera. While I enjoy capturing images of all kinds, I specialize in Children, Teens, Family, and High School Senior Portrait Photography.

My love and passion for taking pictures started in Junior High and has continued ever since.  After years of taking pictures for friends and family as a hobby, I decided to make it into my own little business. I am constantly learning and exploring different photographic techniques and researching ideas in an effort to enhance my creativity and offer my clients a more unique experience.

"Chris was a Referral to me from my dear friend Melissa.  We have a 2 year old daughter and had waited until the last minute for our Christmas Card photo shoot.  Chris was MORE than accommodating and professional in dealing with us as to scheduling the shoot, providing proofs for our review, etc. She was also more than patient in dealing with my father, my mother in law as well as our 2 year old daughter at the beach!  She even brought her own darling props and accessories that I would have never thought of.  The pictures turned out AMAZING, made for a beautiful Christmas card, and quite a few have been put into frames around our home.  I highly, highly recommend Chris for any photography needs!  We will be using her for future birthdays, holiday cards, really any and all photography needs.  She is the BEST!"
