"Christina is the perfect person to catch that precious moment of your family pet. :) She brings such patience, joy and creativity to her work. My 2 dogs loved her! She has a wonderful eye for lighting and making your photograph unique and special!!!"

"Christina is wonderfully gifted with a talented eye and feel. I cannot stress enough how patient, creative, and adaptive Christina is. Working with animals can be a challenge for pictures or film, but Christina specializes in working with all sorts of animals. She has taken pictures of my dog, cats and horses with and without myself in the photos. I personally hate my picure being taken. I just know that every picture will turn out confirming my worst fears about my looks, but when Christina Hyke is behind the camera I have complete faith and trust in her abilities. I have never seen a picture I didn't love from her, every next one is my favorite and gasp worthy. Some of my animals have passed on and I can't tell you how much the pictures she took mean to me now. I wholeheartedly recommend her work." -Chrystal S.

"We are a non-profit animal shelter and a few months ago, Christina contacted us offering her services to photograph our adoptable animals. She is fantastic! She is so patient with the animals, very professional, and her pictures are absolutely beautiful. She has a way of capturing personalities of the animals and I know that her lovely photos have aided in getting some animals adopted. We are extremely blessed to have someone as talented as Christina volunteering her time and talent to benefit the animals in our care." -Sara Lastusky, Community Outreach Coordinator Humane Society of Jefferson County

"Christina completed a "last moments" memorial shoot for my first horse, Rhia. Sadly, I had to release her due to medical issues. The photos Christina captured were absolutely beautiful in every sense. She was able to capture the loving bond Rhia and I had during her last days, as well as the sadness of our parting. I urge you all to view these pictures on her website. Rhia was a beautiful paint that I rescued from a hard life. You will be able to see in the photos just how loving she was at the end. Thank you Christina for the lifelong memories you captured"---Kim LaChance

"Blast from the past! I was able to contact the photographer from a 2011 dressage schooling show (my and my old Saddlebred's first dressage show), and was able to get the remaining 8 photos from that show. (THANK YOU Christina Hyke, you are AWESOME! And I do believe this is the ONLY show photo of me actually smiling." ~Thereasa Wirkus
