About the Photog

Hello. My name is Christi. I’m a 40 something year old. At the age of 13, I was formally diagnosed with anxiety and depression later attributed to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and I also suffer from a chronic form of the auto-immune disorder called Mucha Habermann disease. Living in Greenwood, Indiana I have three children. My children are my heart and soul as well as my main source of hope in this world.

I am known as shy, dorky, opinionated, caring, and strong woman who is prone to random acts of stupidity. I have no preconceived notions of fame or fortune, nor do I expect anyone to even like anything that comes out of this head of mine. I’m of the simple minded view that if you don’t like me it isn’t my problem.

I am LGBT friendly. Love is love.

I believe in all paths to God.

I vote based on issues and beliefs; not party lines.

I do not believe in discrimination and will not tolerate it at any time for any reason.

I am a proud Autism and ADHD mom.

I love photography. I’ve had my eyes behind a lens for much of my life. There’s something special about capturing memories for others that brings my soul peace in a world of chaos. Am I perfect? No. I’m rather unconventional in appearance with my multiple piercings and tattoos, but I can promise you one thing: I will never pretend to be something I’m not.

Photography is not just a passion, but a therapy. While I am behind a lens I don’t feel anything but absolute joy. No anxiety. No PTSD. Thus Three One Seven Photography was born! With that said, because of my illnesses my time is very valuable and very scarce. I do not do photography full time, nor do I make a living of it. I schedule around my disabilities and ask that my clients consider this when making appointments.
