Welcome to

Prickly Pears Photo!


I'm Christine, an Indiana-based pet and lifestyle photographer!


I believe in the power of photographs being physical representations of memories and bringing you right back to the emotion of a moment. Often, we move through life so quickly that we forget those belly-aching laughs, heart swelling sights, or genuine pride in achievements we've made. I want to help keep those memories alive for you!


I wholeheartedly feel that candid, genuine moments produce the best portrayals of who you (or your pets) are and, therefore, the best photographs and memories.

"Christine did such an amazing job with our pictures! Her creativity is out of this world! She made it so easy with our 4-legged guy as well! You can tell she loves what she does with the dedication she puts in, I can't thank her enough! I always told her one day she'd make it big and by golly she's right there! Love you girl! Keep killing it out there and seriously anyone who needs pictures of any kind she is YOUR girl hands down!"
