“Collect Moments, Not Things” 

Welcome to the Christine Robin Photography Studio

At Christine Robin Photography we specialize in capturing the wonder of pregnancy, miracle of newborns, baby's first smile and baby's first steps, birthdays, sibling bonds, joys of parenthood and family blessings. 

At Christine Robin Photography we take pride in making each photo session a custom one-of-a-kind experience for each-and-every client.   Our specialty is creating original images of you and/or child using classic, timeless, props, and backdrops or natural settings of your choosing. 

Your photoshoot includes pre-portrait planning and our pre-consultation planning process and communications will ensure I capture the portraits you have been dreaming of.

At the studio there is an extensive inventory of props, outfits, and backdrops for you to choose from.  While we offer a large variety of session types to suit your needs we also offer custom designed sets tailored to your unique taste and interests. 

For outdoor locations and settings, our studio has direct and easy access to stunning coastal locations including but not limited to a lighthouse, secluded beaches, forests, and flower fields.

Feeling camera shy? Most people are, but I invite you to let me take the best photo you've ever had taken of yourself. I take great pride in transforming the self conscious "camera shy" client to confident in front of the camera employing my experience and knowledge of flattering angles, poses, lighting and locations (either outdoor or in-studio) combined with a comfortable, friendly, non-judgmental environment throughout your session.  Don't be surprised when you fall in love with the images of yourself from your photoshoot.  It is an empowering experience you won't want to miss and it is an incredibly rewarding process and journey for me as well.

The Christine Robin Photography portrait studio is located in a small Northern California coastal community called Half Moon Bay.   Our portrait studio is located at the Half Moon Bay Harbor, also known as Pillar Point Harbor and Princeton-by-the-Sea.  Located directly off the scenic Pacific Coast Highway One, we are nestled between breathtaking coastline and endless acres of protected open space.

Our 775 square foot portrait studio is located at the "Shoppes at Harbor Village" which is a quaint cluster of small unique service providing businesses and restaurants adjacent to the Oceano Hotel and Spa. The legendary Mavericks surf contest is held annually not far from the harbor entrance.  What better excuse to take a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway than to come visit us at our studio. There is ample free parking by our studio which is located at 270 Capistrano Road #20.

Professional Grade Gear

Only the best technology and equipment will do when it comes to you and your family.  At Christine Robin Photography we use the Nikon D800 Digital SLR camera to capture your most precious moments with extremely low noise, incredible dynamic range and the most faithful colors. This 36.3 megapixel professional grade camera offers the highest quality, superior performance, speed, handling and a fully integrated imaging system.

The Nikon D800 digital camera is paired at our studio with the AF-S Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 lens. A professional grade lens that enhances sharpness and contrast, and enables ultra high-speed auto focusing with pinpoint accuracy. Praised for its overall image quality, this is a long-time favorite lens of passionate professionals. This lens provides both fine resolution and natural representation for the best possible image quality for our clients. 

We use natural light, strobes and constant light sources in our studio. Our constant light source is the "Peter Hurley Flex Kit" which provides flattering professional grade studio lights, and produces clean, crisp, contemporary images while flattering a variety of skin tones of all ages.  Our strobes produce our white backlight look which is popular, modern, contemporary, clean and crisp as well. 

Lastly, professional editing to every image in your gallery is done is subtle, natural, and will make you and your family magazine worthy.
