If it moves I want to shoot it.
Specializing in candid and event photography.
I do my best to capture the spirit of your event and be as fun and extreme as the subjects I photograph which means if your getting wet and dirty so am I and loving every minute of it.

We had Patty out to take pictures of us during a show last weekend and she way above and beyond to make us look good! The pictures turned out great and she is a great person to work with and really knows how to capture great moments.
Response from Porch Pig Productions:
Thank you so much.. I can't wait to see you all again I had awesome subjects.
Patty captures it all! The clumps of mud flying through the air as our boys are wildly riding the track, the worry on this moto-mom's face, the pride on dad's face, little sister running and playing while her brothers are riding their dirt bikes as crazy as can be! Patty is SO TALENTED! She froze all these memories to be cherished by our family forever! I can't say enough how much I LOVE her work!
I would highly recommend this Photographer for your events as she does amazing photos of our event.
After coming down to Springfield from Houghton, MI for the NCAA DII Men's basketball regionals, we decided leaving the game that we should crash the St. Patrick's Day parade. Patty's pictures really captured the spirit of our band and the craziness that comes with crashing a parade on a last minute decision. Thanks for the great photos!

Thank you so much :) You are the definition of living life "Keep Making Memories" Patty
I am apart of the Midwest Chuck Wagon Racing Association (MCWRA) of Missouri and have had the honor of working closely with one of the most talented and dedicated photographer around. Patty, of Porch Pig Productions LLC, has gone above and beyond to capture some of the best action shots of Chuck Wagon Racing I have seen. But even more amazing is the fact that she not only captures stunning photos of the races, but also the intricate details leading up to and after the races. This extra, behind the scene photography, provides her clients unique shots that allow every part of the event to come alive every time they look at the photos. I can’t say enough about this lady, I have watched her at other events and she never rests until she has photographed every last detail.
She gives a 110% plus in all that she does and her dedication and professionalism is why I hired her to photograph the most important day of my life. My wedding day was spectacular and Patty captured every detail. Her hard work, patience with me, and enthusiasm made even the group photos fun to take. It’s beyond words how happy I am with the quality of the photos. They don’t just make wonderful keepsakes but they show every little detail so vividly that I am taken back to that day as if I was living it again.
This lady does an amazing job! Her pictures of the National Chuchwagon races capture the essence of what Clinton is all about. The everyday of it. Love what she does!
Porch Pig always has the best images of everything you want to see. Great quality & always very enjoyable to look through all of the albums. They do a great service being able to share their images with friends & family!
Response from Porch Pig Productions:
Thank you so much Tracy!
Happy People are always always fun. But those who are as passionate about life as the people I photograph are an inspiration.

Pets are not only welcomed they are encouraged from horses to reptiles we love them all.
Family times can be family reunions, Birthdays, or special mile markers.

Dads and what we term pose-phobics( Porch Pigs head sow Patty included) tend to do very well with our baited approach to the family Photo.
Will I fit into your vision?
Here is what I capture
I am not bound by convention . I have to use unique methods to capture unique people. I will get down in the dirt and mud , lay in a creek or tie myself to the scaffolding if that is what it takes to get the shot.
In my heart and eye everyone has a winning moment. that moment happens even if they don't take home the ribbons. Capturing that glory and what it took to get there is my goal.
For event promoters my goal is simple
I want to portray your event in the best light possible this includes not only the guests but the team that made it happen. I want people to want to attend your next event.
Why don't I take portraits? There is nothing worse for myself and many others than being told to hold still to have a photo taken. You get hot all over, your face freezes into some tortured grimace instead of a smile, you close your eyes, and it is horrible.
I don't do this type of portrait photography because it tends to make me start to sympathize with the tortured and I find myself sharing their pain and wanting to close my eyes with them
Will I take an unplanned shot where you and all your friends or loved ones get together really fast for a photo? Of course! and they are usually "Fantastic even if I do say so myself.
Family picnics and fun days I love them because they cater to posing cowards such as myself. Eventually every one gets comfortable after eating and playing together and it all works out fine.
Flashless indoor photography
When you request my services it is because you and your team or animal are moving towards a goal . I shoot flash-less for safety purposes. I do not want to ever spook an animal or blind an athlete. No photograph in the world is worth your safety or mine if you thought my flash cost you reaching your goal.
My Wedding style is Journalistic and I am extremely cautious about which weddings I will accept. If I do not feel I will be a good fit for your vision I will happily recommend another photographer
2 hour minimum of $150.00 on all private shoots
My name is Patricia Rustin-Christen, If it moves I want to shoot it, . I do my best to be as diverse as my subjects from hanging out of airplanes to laying in a muddy river or sweating it out in the heat.
If your in it so am I.
Representing my clients and their events is my only goal, from the fast and the furious of bulls and blood, the amusing and candid of two old friends greeting one another or the moment a musician makes a connection with a fan amid the excitement I want your event to come to life and my photos to be the keepsakes of bragging rights and time well spent.
My Images have been utilized to represent numerous events in various media and can be seen in print on the front covers Of Saddlebags Dispatches , Mules and More Magazine , Mishka Press, and most importantly in homes across America.
