The Women Behind the Lense

I am thrilled that you are considering me to capture this special time in your life! Helping women feel special and beautiful through every stage in life, is my reason for being! 

From the proposal, to the wedding day, to your 1st child, this is just the start of our journey together! Our photography experiences are designed to take simple people, in a simple place and create your dream gallery you will treasure forever!

Filled with fun and laughter, I will bring out your inner confidence and showcase your beauty both inside and out. The images we co-create will be so special and will bring you joy every time you look at them for decades...There are a lot of people who can take a great photo, but I want every one of my clients to feel that I've given them a masterpiece...no matter what their budget. 

The Experience

with you every step of the way and beyond. 

A first phone call, is like a first date, lol. We will get to know each other a bit better and decide whether a 2nd date a.k.a. consultation is in order. 

*Let's Chat!! 

Time to meet face to face, either in person or via zoom:) At our consultation we will go get to know each other more. I will learn about your hopes and desires for your childs' portrait session. Digging deep really allows us to design your session, before it even takes place. 

*Consultation

*Let's secure your date!

*Pre-session Planning

*The ordering appointment!

Now that we have gotten to know each other, let's figure out a date and time that works for both of us. Dates are secured by signing the agreement and paying the creative fee. (Reschedules are allowed for illness or emergency)

Time to plan your wardrobe, props, locations, etc.. Let's schedule a zoom meeting to finalize all of the fun details, to ensure that every look and every image will bring a smile to your face. Plus, I will have you send me images of your homes walls, so I can design artwork sizes just for you!!

After the session, we will schedule an in-person where we get to relax, enjoy a glass of wine or non-alcoholic bubbly, sit back and enjoy a beautiful slideshow of all of your images. 

Then we will go through and choose all the artwork you'd love to have in your home and fun gifts you can send to loved ones. 

*Delivery

The artwork has arrived!!! It's time to schedule a time to personally deliver the artwork to your home, or mail if you happen to be located outside of the Bay Area. 

This is my absolute favorite part!!

FAQ's

I had such an amazing experience. I had never had a professional photo session done and Crystal exceeded all of my expectations with the shoot. From the first time I reached out to the moment she delivered my pictures I didn't have not one problem with her service! She made me feel beautiful, she had my husband and I laughing so much, and I can honestly say that my pictures came out so perfect! If you are looking for someone to capture all your beautiful moments please call her! I will definitely be calling her again for all of my future photo needs. Thank you so much for everything Crystal!!!!

Nancy

Just the amount of hardwork she put in to get all the shots and be patient with our newborns sleep cycles, speaks a lot about her professionalism and genuine care for her customers.

We had an amazing in home photo shoot. She brought the studio setup and props to us which was amazing given we have a newborn. She was fabulous with our older daughter and really got her to open up and get amazing photos of her and our son. We are so happy with all the photos she took and would absolutely recommend her!!!

Elizabeth

We hired Crystal to take newborn photos of our daughter and I cannot recommend her enough. She came on time with a whole studio's worth of equipment necessary to take the perfect photos of our baby girl. She was so personable and wonderful with our children and dogs. She took her time to get the perfect shots and had all sorts of cute tutus and scarfs to dress her up. The photos came out incredible and she is super affordable to boot! We will definitely be calling her again for future photo sessions. Thank you, Crystal!

So happy how my maternity photos turned out. Crystal has a natural talent and knows exactly what's she's doing when it comes to photography. I can't wait to do a newborn session with her.

Annie

Reviews

Crystal was amazing & brought out the best and most natural shots from us!! We even discovered sides to our photographing selves that we did not existed! We planned out what we had wanted together. Her goal was to ensure customer satisfaction and the outcomes we had wanted no matter what it took! & she did exactly that. Really glad we were able to go with her after a lot of searching. Can't wait to invite her back soon in the coming weeks and months for more!

FAQ's

* How long have you been a  photographer?

I have been photographing families since 2016. 300+ families, & individuals:)

* Are the digital files included?

I specialize in creating heirloom art pieces that get cherished every day and for decades to come. Digital files get lost in cyber space or your hard drive. However, I understand how important it is to share photos your excited about online. Every piece of artwork that you purchase will include social media sharable digital files.

* How long are the sessions?

Our senior sessions tend to be longer as there are usually multiple outfits. There are 3 types of senior sessions to choose from. Our family and portrait sessions are about getting the images we've chatted about during our consultation. Sometimes that means 30 minute, sometimes it takes an hour. 

* Is travel included in the investment?

Travel is included within a 35 mile radius of Martinez. I love traveling to different locations for family sessions. Some include Lake Tahoe, Oregon and even Germany. Travel is a customized quote. 

* What happens if you are injured or ill?

In the case of sickness or injury I will reach out to reschedule. 

* What is your refund policy?

The session fee is non-refundable, but can be applied towards a later session or given as a gift to someone else:)

* Change of date or postponement policy?

I include one complimentary change of date due to an emergency, national or world crisis. Please let me know asap.
