About the Company Name

"Cricket" was a childhood nickname given to me by my grandfather. I have always been very thin and tall and though i do not sing well, I sung all the time. Although I personally do not like bugs, and too many that can't understand why I named my compnany after tiny little creature I do not like, this just made sense because of the special person who gave it to me. So as tribute to him memory "Creative Cricket" was born!

Meet the Photographer

My name is Christine O'Meara of Creative Cricket Photography, I am a wife of 25 years and a mother of to precious young adults. I started the company in 2006 in the town of Prince Frederick, Maryland I have loved art and photography since childhood and decided to take the hobby to career status. I moved the company to Gastonia, North Carolina in 2007. From there I started a formilzed training and graduated from college in 2009. Not happy with just a degree I wanted to learn more and to push my skills further, thus I started my journey to the CPP certification in the fall of 2012 and received my CPP in the Spring of 2014.

I have met and become part of such a wonderful and growing professional community since 2012. I was able to join in partnership with three fabulious photographers in Charlotte, North Carolina in July of 2012 and was finally able to accomplish a longtime dream of opening a traditional brick and mortar studio outside the home. Now I operate both on location and in studio to better serve my clients needs. I love what I do, I love to meet and talk with new people and learn there needs and desires and I am proud to be your photographer. I am passionate about light, color and composure. I like to do traditional as well as artsy styled photography. My goal is to give your family the fine piece of art that all will love for generations to come.
