My name is Christina Forêt. It's French. I'm not. But my husband is and obtaining a circumflex in my name is my greatest accomplishment to date.
My story starts in South Carolina where I was born. Followed by a few entertaining chapters living on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and another year in Nashville. I finally found my home in a man named Blaise and a little hippie town in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Circling back and settling only an hour from where I drew my very first breath, the south has an inescapable charm about it. And Asheville has a rebellion against it's own geographical location that I find comforting. We are together changing and growing and shifting and learning while we are still, somehow, remaining who we are.
I'm a photographer, a writer, a stylist, as well as founder of Asheville Folk, a community of artists, makers, and dreamers. I have a message of hope and a heart for community. Sometimes that translates best through photographs, sometimes through words, and sometimes gathered around a table with a bottle of red wine and a cheese spread in the center.
I photograph people in love and people I love, things I love and things I want to love. After being a wedding photographer for the past 6 years, my creative path has widened to include styling, hosting and planning events.
