Meet Christin Khan of Christin Khan Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Christin Khan.

Christin, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I loved photography ever since I took my dad’s camera out on a field trip to the North End as part of a high school photography class. Even in those early days, I found myself gravitating the most towards photographs of people, and over the years I began taking more and more photographs as a creative hobby. One Christmas I presented the family I was working for as a nanny with some beautifully framed black and white prints of their children, and pretty soon all of their friends wanted to hire me.

Years later, I was reluctantly convinced to photograph the wedding of a friend, and was delighted to discover just how much fun it was! Everyone was dressed up and so full of happy emotions – I felt like a kid in a candy store with so many amazing photographs all around me just waiting to be captured. From that day on, I started photographing weddings and I love getting to play with my camera in an atmosphere so filled with love, friendship, and raw emotion.

I love to play with the sunlight in my photography and to use wild and natural places as the backdrop.

All these years that I have been photographing, I have also been pursuing a career in marine biology and nowadays, in addition to photographing family portraits and weddings, I am also lucky enough to conduct marine mammal surveys and photograph whales from an airplane!

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have wandering off the road many times, but my love for photography always seems to draw me back again.

I initially decided not to pursue a degree in photography in college because I didn’t want to live the life of the starving artist, or more importantly to me at that time, I didn’t want to have to wait tables anymore. So, I chose to major in biology instead. However, of course I didn’t go down the practical route of medical school but instead became more and more fascinated with animals and marine biology. Ironically, I found myself supporting my marine biology habit in graduate school by working as a photographer!

Nowadays I am lucky enough to have somehow managed the impossible and get to do both!

Christin Khan Photography – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I specialize in natural outdoor family portraits and weddings. I love to play in the dappled sunlight, I love to photograph in a wild place, and I love to travel! I love the giddy feeling of excitement when I have captured a truly stunning image and I love the joy of sharing that with my clients.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I fall in love with every family I photograph and so somehow each and every project I work on becomes my new pride and joy.
