Chris Henning has been taking photos of my family for several years now. The quality of her work is amazing! Chris has managed to catch my children in fun loving natural poses doing what they love best--- playing! Most recently Chris photographed my daughter's 3rd birthday party-- complete with photos of my daughter in beautiful poses, as well as shots of all of her friends and the birthday events. Chris pays wonderful attention to detail, with the final pictures looking as though my children were beautifully airbrushed-- even the dog looks great! I know I can count on Chris for beautiful family photos for all of our special occasions!- Jennifer Martinez

I have seen several different photos that Chris Henning has taken over the years and think she does a wonderful job capturing the spirit of her subject.  When my third child was born last year, I asked if she would take pictures of him with my two older children.  With grace and seeming ease, Chris worked with my three young children and produced several quality shots.  I was hoping to get one good picture of the three of them and found myself torn trying to choose the best picture out of many perfect pictures! The quality of Chris Henning's work far exceeds any photos I've ever had taken of my children and I will hire her for all our future yearly portraits and special occasions.- Jenny Patton

"We were beyond challenging as photography subjects -the weather was rainy; my dog was hot on the trail of a squirrel. My toddler was shy, my preschooler was wild, and my husband was feeling it was somewhat unmanly to have his picture taken. And I had not actually had the chance to comb my hair. But Chris was delightful and professional. She persevered. She improvised. She made friends with the kids and worked with the weather. And the family photographs we have are delicious. She captured the essence of our family, and the resulting pictures are beyond snapshots or memories. They're heirlooms."-- Carrie

"I highly recommend Chris Henning photography.  She takes amazing, photo-journalistic quality pictures that really capture the feeling of the moment.  Her work is both high-end and approachable.  Also, she's great at working with children and families to get that perfect shot." - Robyn Dahlgren

My favorite pictures displayed in my house were taken by Chris Henning at my daughter's 5th birthday party. She took an amazing assortment of photographs that completely captured the excitement of the party. I was very impressed with her array of candid shots as a whole group and the lovely close ups of each girl. I highly recommend her to my family and friends and will use her again as she has such a beautiful and artistic quality to each picture she takes. - Suzanne Talbert

I just wanted to write a brief statement to let anyone that may be intrested in Chris doing your photo's that I am absolutely pleased with her work. Not only are her photo's astonishing, she was very patient and more than professional. She makes you feel absolutely comfortable. My daughter was only 6 weeks old when she captured some amazing shots. You wont be disappointed. Chris is now my photographer of choice.:):):) ~Rachel Aston

I recently had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot with Chris for some fall photos. Although my son was not cooperating as I would have liked, Chris just went along with it and was still able to get such fantastic shots. She makes you feel so relaxed and at ease during what can be a very hectic experience with an active 4 year old. I had such a hard time narrowing down the choices but I finally did it! The quality and color of Chris' photos are like nothing I have ever seen before. I couldn't be happier!~Sandra Ramsdell~

"I was recently referred to Chris through a friend. I went onto her website and absolutely loved the images – especially of the children. We have a 6 year old daughter who does not relish having her photo taken. The last professional session we had was when she turned a year old! From the very beginning Chris was professional yet extremely personable. We selected an atypical setting for our shoot - an old dilapidated ice factory in Midtown. I was expecting Chris to shy away from this location opting for a more traditional setting but she didn't. In fact, she admitted that she was excited to work on something different which delighted me. She suggested we meet prior to our session so she could meet Madison, see the setting and discuss the types of shots we wanted. What a great concept! Maddy warmed up to her right away and actually was looking forward to the day of our shoot. That day went better than expected – Maddy was comfortable around Chris and that translated in wonderful images; the session was quick which thrilled my husband; and the end results are gorgeous photographs that we will treasure forever. I can not thank you enough, Chris!"~Mollie Nelson~

I recently had my 3 children's pictures taken with Christine Henning and it was the best experience we have ever had. In a studio, the kids are acting silly or being shy or not posing together. We agreed to meet her at a nearby park. It was fun for the kids because Chris is so great and patient with them. This way the kids are relaxed and there were no "cheesy smiles". Chris is also very professional and her involvement from beginning to end shows that she cares about her clients. I chose to order black and white photos and now have them hanging at the top of my staircase. I get compliments every time someone sees the photos for the first time. I would recommend Christine Henning to anyone that wants an amazing and memorable experience while getting family photos taken.Joni Huffman

Chris, I wanted to let you know that i am really thrilled with the photos. You did an amazing job and I'm so excited about them. Thank you so much. i know there are a lot of photographers out there and it's a rather competitive field. We've worked with professionals in the past and I think a lot of your work is as good if not better. You really have a gift and I will continue to recommend you to friends and family. I know it's hard not to love photos of your own child, but you captured the colors beautifully and the little moments that mean the most to us and I love that. Great job on the photos and also on getting a stubborn three year old to smile and enjoy himself. I'm already working on reasons to plan another session. :)With great appreciation,Rachel

I proudly display the photographs Chris has taken of my children and I can't count the number of people who literally stopped in their tracks to compliment those images! While my children undoubtedly make lovely subjects, it is Chris's talent as a photographer that make the images so special. Chris always puts my kids at ease and, as the session goes on, I realize I can let go of the usual concerns (will their shirts stay clean? will they smile at all?) and enjoy the experience. She has photographed my children at birthday parties, "on location" at the Sacramento Zoo and I am already looking forward to our next session. The photos are reminders of the happiness of the day; the kids are relaxed and natural. I am consistently thrilled with the results and I am always proud to refer my friends and family to Chris.Julie Snoke

I wanted to put something on Chris's testimonial page because we had such a good time at our photo session in November 2008. Chris being a mother herself, definitely has a good rapport with children and my daughter Lauren was completely at ease with her. She took some great photos that day. We loved the location she choose, the falls leaves turned out beautiful in our photos. We were also very happy with the quality of our photos and how quick it took Chris to get our photos on- line for us to view. We loved one of the photos with our daughter so much that we made it into this year's Christmas card and you should have heard all the wonderful comments we got on it. Chris is very talented!Viv Nolan

I just took a look at your website and it's very reflective of your photographs...creative without being fussy, stylish, timeless and overall beautiful! I thought of you this past month as I finally framed the gorgeous photos that you tookof our family last October. Thank you for providing us with such a variety and for capturing the tears and messy faces amongst the smiles and kisses. I appreciate having photographs that truly represent my children and their personalities and you didn't miss the opportunity to deliver that. We included a photo of Noah and Evelyn in our Christmas cards and there was no nicer compliment than having people say, "That photo just made me smile." It was so nice to be able to give that to our family and friends. We look forward to seeing you again this fall for round 2!!~Blanca Nelson
