Christmas in Branson

Since this year we are all spending Christmas with our in-laws, my family decided to do our own Christmas early in Branson. We only stayed for a weekend...I wish it could have been longer. I love my family dearly and miss them when we are away. We are a very close family!

We stayed at a log cabin not too far from Branson http://www.loghavenlodge.com/
It was a very nice cabin, just not secluded like we had hoped...I'm sure we'd have to pay a lot more for seclusion. The weather was on the lousy side, so we stayed inside most of the time; hanging out and spending time together. My parents below were pretending this was their own house.

Some of these pictures were taken with a small point and shoot. There was a ton of fog and it left spots on all the images...oh well, you do what you can. The giant tree behind Paul and I was my favorite part about Silver Dollar City. It was lit with millions of lights which lit up in sync to music....very cool!
We walked around for hours!
Great American Shootout

The guys always have to have their video games!


Paul and I are heading for Minnesota for our Christmas with his Dad...hopefully I will have some images from our time there to share when I get back. Merry Christmas to all!

Engagement Promo Video::

Now that wedding season is over, I have been working on a few promotional tools and gearing up for the 2008 season. I've got some video software that I am still in the process of learning how to use, in the meantime, I found some shortcuts to making some basic videos. Below is a sample of my engagement promo.

Tis' the Season



I began December with a couple of family portraits. I didn't have much time this year to advertise for holiday portraits and cards, however, I love this time of the year and love creating images my clients will use to send to those they love.

The Johnson family came mainly for some 2yr old shots of their son, Brayden. He was such a cutie, but was not feeling too well, and on top of that....he was two, and two yr olds will be two year olds :)

Despite not feeling well, we did manage to pull off a few good ones. His "elephant sounds" were the best!




Nicole and I go back a few years. I captured her daughter, Taylor, right after she was born last May, and now I had the honor of their family holiday portraits. Taylor is growing so fast!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
