I have this ultimate dream to live in a rural area and raise a small hobby farm.  Our kids would spend their days running barefoot through the backwoods, getting dirt under their nails, daydreaming while watching clouds pass.

hey, it's Crystal!

Wife and mama to 3, I understand the chaos of having your picture taken.  You can typically find me indulging in a little too much coffee, short-order cook to 4 picky eaters (including my husband), showcasing our crazy on Instagram, or traveling on the weekends. 

a little about me

A huge part of my heart is greatly fulfilled when I get to help create this with others. Bringing you into this magical world of mine is the best gift I know how to give.

I've spent the first 15 years of my adult career working 1:1 with children + their families in a  hospital enviroment.  Stressful situations are common which has powered me with the tools to deescalate the stress that comes with family photos.

Not only do I have experience working with children, but I’ve developed many techniques of distraction to help get them involved, focused, and having fun.

Thank you for allowing me to share this dream with you.

I live for passionate moments.

These are a few

“One day all your children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you're in them. No matter what your hair looks like, you make up or your body, they won’t care about any of that, they’ll just want to see you. Do it for them."
