Honeymoon, Autumn in Las Vegas + Animals & Love

Here is a collection of photos, mostly of me, my mom & Tolga, lots from our honeymoon. We had so much fun when she was here this month. November 2011 has been one of the happiest months of my life, so I’ll celebrate and memorialize it with one more photoblog full of orange, brown, yellow – autumn colors. These are locations in or around Las Vegas. One more blast of autumn love to me, my mom, and my spectacular new husband.


Our Romantic, Storybook Wedding

tolga and christine marie katas

After many wonderful years of being in love and dreaming that we would one day get married, we finally officially became husband and wife. On 11-11-11, Tolga and I had a storybook, rose-filled, Bohemian wedding at Chameleon Studios – the Moulin Rouge of Las Vegas. (Well, in the decor anyway.) We broke tradition and did … Continue reading

From “The Pink & Purple” Shoot

Another batch of photos Tolga took.

I Went to London to Perform & I Discovered Something Incredible!

Photoblog: England a couple weeks ago. Producer John Hyde  showed me around a bit of London to help calm my nerves before my gig at Royal Albert Hall.  John, by the way, is the colorful musician who produced the sparkling children’s songs for my  Gingerbread CD.  I wore pink because I was hoping people would … Continue reading

The Mob Experience, Tolga, Friends, & Vanilla Ice

Last night Tolga, his little brother Kutan, some friends and I went to The Mob Experience in Las Vegas. It was like  going to a museum, only you walked through it and interacted with mob members. Below is one of the exhibits from the mob days, they had lots of exhibits. Below is Tolga with … Continue reading

Photos in a Ghost Town

Christine Marie

Tolga and I went on a drive in search of a welcome summer breeze in the desert country, and we ended up miles from sweltering Las Vegas.  I was working on my iPad the whole time. That is – until we found a ghost town. We didn’t see any  ghosts, unfortunately. There was one “store” there … Continue reading

Wasn’t I Cute?

Christine Marie

This is why I was picked on as a child, hehe. And why I have such a tender heart for children who are bullied. It’s also why I involved my own children in school assemblies we did called “Too Cool to be Cruel.” Teaching children to be kind to one another and to stand up … Continue reading

Love Break

I’ve always had a believing heart. I am getting married to someone I have been with for 9 years, but even for me, that is hard to believe. I’m counting the days until I get married to the man I love. My sweetheart, rock, visionary, comedian, motivator, genius and best friend. He is always taking pictures … Continue reading

Tax Day & Ethics

I figured April 15th called for a serious look.  This is black Friday because of taxes anyway right? The truth is that Tolga wanted to try some “one light” photography to practice where the shadows were cast on my face. He said I need a tough cookie look to complement my sugar cookie look, so … Continue reading
