Le Petit Studio - Christine Petit

Your Bio

Le Petit Studio is owned and operated by photographer Christine Petit in Connecticut's Farmington Valley. She photographs a variety of subjects: children and families, headshots, portraits, weddings, cause-related events and marketing imagery, fundraisers, product and more. She is a graduate of the Professional Photography Program at Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts.

Christine combines her background as a newspaper editor with her creative eye to capture photographs that tell a story rich with emotional detail.

Her news background not only helped train her to identify the right moment to click the shutter, but also how to write a bio in the third-person. Photography is the medium that allows Christine to aspire for the perfection she believes is possible in art if not life; while simultaneously driving herself crazy trying to attain it.

Though currently enthralled with her Nikon D800, one thing Christine can't do without is her iPhone camera. It has allowed her obsession with recording and sharing daily beauty to fit perfectly into the palm of her hand; essential to not missing a moment. Best invention ever.

Another thing she can't live without is her newly-acquired husband, Bill and their new baby boy, William Arthur Petit III. The Petits are quite involved with local charity work, especially through The Petit Family Foundation. The events they attend coupled with their love of travel and new experience keep them away from home often; one reason that Bill won't let Christine get a puppy.

Her passion for all art includes music and performance. Starting out on her bike at 15 teaching piano to neighborhood kids, Christine has since traveled the world as the Music Coordinator for Up with People; visiting Europe, the Philippines and Mexico. Recent trips have included coastal Maine, Sanibel Island, Charleston, and two trips to South Africa; camera always in hand.
