Mikayla Christiansen Photography

OH, Hey There




Hi, friends! My name is Mikayla. I am the branding and portrait photographer here at Mikayla Christiansen Photography. I serve the Lynchburg, Virginia area. I just re-located from Sanford, North Carolina and have specific availability in the Raleigh (RDU), North Carolina area.

I love loving people, traveling, and Jesus. I am obsessed with "The Office" and big cups of coffee. Take me out sometime, I will impress you with my coffee drinking skills.

If you are looking for cookie cutter and awkward poses, I'm not your photographer. I love capturing the little moments as well as the big. I love capturing the genuine smiles and the silly. 

My hopes and intentions are to put something different, possibly even quirky and daring out into this world.

I create images for all people of different ages and life paths: families, seniors, professionals, models, boutiques, and local businesses. I love telling your story through photos. I adore being able to work with so many different people and brands that are impacting the world. Ask me about travel! I am always down to coming to you! 

Let's get coffee and chat more about your creative session. 



I strive to capture the authenticity, transparency, and beauty in your life. My vision is provide a service that isn't generic but one that flows with passion and creates conversation.
