Hi, so happy you've come across my work! I’m Carris Bennett Christianson, a photographer with a passion for shooting portrait, lifestyle, product and art photography.

My photography mission is to produce honest images that give aesthetic pleasure, focusing in and highlighting the already existing integrity and beauty of the subject.


I’m most passionate about Photography, Music, Motherhood and producing content that has a positive effect in the world.  After 15 years in Los Angeles, we've relocated to Portland. With a background in Interior Design and Merchandising, my transition into Photography came organically.  When I’m not working you can find me with my children exploring our new city.

One of my favorite recent shoots was at the Ace Hotel with a client and her adorable son. They sat in the lounge enjoying croissants while I weaved through patrons capturing candid shots.  We then ventured outside into the rain where she sat under the awning of a Parisian style cafe table sipping her espresso, and I photographed from the street!  The shoot came out awesome and one of the cafe portraits was published.

My work has been published in Luxury Magazine, Portland Tribune, Mindbodygreen and I have worked with companies such as: Toobydoo, One Potato, Seedling, Jord Watches, and more.
