Spuddle: a feeble movement
Funk: a state of depression
I feebly move through a constant state of depression. Fitting, eh?

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; not party lines.
I do not believe in discrimination and will not tolerate it at any time for any reason.
I am a proud USMC, 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 Spuddle Funk 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.
