Grassroots Photography

When I was a RA at the University of Kentucky from August 2005 to May 2006 I met lots of people and got to experience lots of new things.  One of those people in particular was one of the most energetic, fun-loving, goal-driven people I’ve ever met in my life.  As a freshman at UK in the fall of 2005, Christina Layton came to Jewell as a quiet, polite young lady from a small town in Northern Kentucky…That did not last long!  Soon after the semester started Christina met lots of new people and quickly became a smiling, positive aspect to the worst place I’ve ever lived!  Christina soon became one of my good friends and a wonderful resident to have on my floor, always participating in events and floor meetings and being very active in Campus life in general, and soon learning more about Trav and I than she ever wanted too ;).  To sum her up, Christina is just an all around good girl who I’d recommend for any thing she attempted.
You may be wondering why I’ve gone on for so long about this girl none of you know!  Well, it’s because Christina has decided to take the chance of running her own photography business and I want to help her succeed as much as possible.  Even though we don’t get to talk a lot anymore, I know that Christina is just as dedicated to her photography as she is UK and I’d like to let everyone who visits this site know how to get some great pics taken!  Visit Christina’s website at (or click the link in the special offers section to the right) to see what a great photographer she is, and please feel free to let me know if you need more information about Christina, or her fiance Jeff Gora, who made Christina’s website his first as a programmer!



Oh my goodness Becca…I googled my name and this is what I got!!!  You are one of the SWEETEST people I have ever gotten to know and I really appreciate all of your kindness.  You have taught me a lot about being a college student and I am so thankful we were able to become friends-for life.  You and Travis are so awesome and I am so glad you all are having such a happy and loving marriage.  You all are such a great example to look up to!!  I love you to pieces and we need to get together for coffee sometime!! (and dip and dots…haha).  Tell Travis I said hi!!


I have known Christina since she was born. Her and my daughter grew up together and attended the same school. She is a wonderful person and I too wish her the best in her chosen field. I know she will succeed because she has the drive to get it done. I saw her the other day and I just can’t get over how beautiful she is inside and out. If you have her as a friend you have one of the greatest gifts in the world.


I love you too Christina!  I wish you the best with your business, and also with your engagement to Jeff!  I know that Travis and I were your influence on your short-lived dating, and let me tell you, I wouldn’t change anything about it!  If you know you want to be with someone the rest of your life, I think it’s great to go ahead and commit yourself to them!  To anon: I’ve only known Christina a short while, but I’m sure what I’ve seen of her has been her true self, you are lucky as well to know such a great person!
