Hi There!


I'm Christine Yodsukar.

‍‍‍I educate photographers on turning their passion into their business so they have more time for whatever (or whomever) it i‍‍‍s that makes them wake up each day. I'm also a photographer. I split my work/live/play time between Los Angeles, Ca, Portland, Or, and the rest of the world.

Want a starting point? Watch me Design Art that Sells here


When I'm not fulfilling my duties to human kind, I'm spending time with my own reason for living; my son Forrest (aka FLY), and my husband Rich. I wear glitter on my face and I stay up way too late scheming (because, ya know, I wake up at 6am every day with FLY. That's super fun). The reason behind any thing that I do in my life? Because it makes me happy. We all should DO because it makes us happy. Thats why I'm here. To help you find what truly makes you happy again, and make it possible to do that every day, because just because you're an artist doesn't mean you don't deserve to make a living what you're doing.

Event Photography





This guide comes to you as 45 pages full of Reception Lighting Education. As the most non-technical technical lighter I know, I give you both the nuts and bolts behind working with your lighting equipment as well as a more artistic understanding of how it all works. Along with diagrams and example photos, you will have step by step instructions for building lighting set-ups for multiple situations, as well as what gear to use from beginner to advanced. There will be no Reception Lighting rock left unturned.

Reception Lighting Guide Coming Soon.

Wedding photography


I truly believe that as Wedding Photographers we have a gift. How can we let that gift die just because we are scared of 'being a salesperson' or have a fear of putting ourselves out there. Life is about the people we love and the adventures we go on with them. There is no better gift we can give our clients that tangible proof of their love and adventures. Wedding Albums change lives. Both your clients' lives, and yours.

When you work with me one-on-one, there is no limit to the questions you can ask and the problems we can solve together like the "what-if's" and the 'but, I can't because". You will quickly see the impact of working so closely with me in your business, because not long ago I was exactly where you are. You CAN be the success you want to be. You just have to give it your all.

Push Yourself.

I want to share my motto for business with you.

"Doing is the engine of more."

I couldn't find who originated the phrase, but my motto is a riff on, 'Done is the engine of more.' But sometimes done seems so far away. DOING is attainable now. And to DO, we must get out of our comfort zone, move around with likeminded people, get excited, get motivated, and make shit happen. 

Because if we don't do now, we will never have that moment of change that we so desperately need.

Let's do this together.
