I met Christine by chance in December when my friend Rodellee invited me to a small gathering at her studio. Besides being the proprietress of Camillia Heirloom + Modern, Christine also manages a studio space shared by a number of creative women.
She was one of those sweet people whose kindness and creativity just radiates from them. Not only that, but she was wearing a beautiful wool 1950s dress almost exactly like one I used to own and still sadly miss.
As we chatted, I learned that in addition to her photography, Christine was interested in moving into art direction. I’d just started looking for an art director.
A couple of visits, lunches, and chat sessions later, I invited Christine to join our little team. She’ll be mostly helping guide the aesthetic and photos over at Seamwork, but she’ll also be working on various other projects as they come up (like shooting some updated imagery for the patterns!)
Christine has a passion for beautiful vintage details, which I’m sure you’ll see in her work. She does an incredible job of combining vintage and modern and telling a story through photos. She also feels strongly that women should love themselves as they are, another value that makes her a good fit here, and that I’m sure you’ll see shine through in the coming months.
She’s also a mom to 3 kids, a plant lover like me, and makes some killer chocolates. Since she’s been working with us, we have not wanted for fresh flowers or little chocolate treats.
Please join me in welcoming Christine!
