About Denver Photographer Robin Christman
I am originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and grew up in a family with several photographers. My dad was an amateur photographer with his own darkroom in my childhood home, and my uncle was a professional photographer and videographer for television. I guess this sparked my interest in photography, and throughout my teens I began to document my life with my friends and family. This has been an innate quality for me, to watch and enjoy people interacting with one another and to capture these intimate moments.
I took this interest and decided to make it a career. I graduated from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science in Photojournalism. I worked as a professional news photographer for seven years. In college I placed as a semifinalist in the national William Randolph Hearst contest. As a professional, I’ve won several state and national photography awards.
I lived in Maui from 2002-2017 and photographed family portraits, newborns, children, pregnant Moms, weddings, vow renewals, and other special events. I relocated back to Denver in the fall of 2017 and am now specializing in interior photography, family portraits, and senior portraits.
Why I Do This
For me, photographing families is special because I think it is so important for families to capture special memories and times in their family’s lives. I lost my father at a very young age and only have one family photo of us, above, that my Dad took on the side of our house. I will always treasure that photo, and it has made me realize how important it is to capture times with our families.
As a Denver portrait photographer, I try to make your photo session fun for the whole family. I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed so that your images convey that. With a background in photojournalism, I am a trained observer. I love to watch people interact in loving and intimate ways and, because of that, I feel I am great at observing and capturing these moments for people with my camera. My experience as a news photographer has trained me to wait for and anticipate these special moments. To check out my photojournlism gallery click here.
I now also specialize in photographing interiors, vacation rental photography and real estate photography. I have always LOVED interior design so this specialty fits in well with my personality and skills as a photographer. I started shooting for Airbnb and Airbnb Plus in 2018, and interiors have quickly become one of my favorite things to photograph.
