My sister and I decided to surprise our mom with a family photo shoot for her birthday. Since I live on the other side of the country I turned to yelp for help, and found Crystal. She was so easy to communicate with and was super professional and accommodating. It was a multi generational photo shoot and she handled it beautifully. The photos came out great, everyone had a good time and we have some great memories. Highly recommend Crystal for your photography needs she has a great eye, and is a true professional.

Crystal did our holiday family portraits for us. She was amazing. She was very flexible with scheduling a date. She was super professional and her contract tool was excellent. She made a great recommendation for where to take the portraits, and had some great ideas for our photos. We have a four year old and she does not like to take photos, but with Crystal she was all smiles and poses. Crystal definitely knows how to get kids to sit still and brings out the best in them for the photo. The pictures came out amazing and Crystal was so quick to get us the pics back. I am definitely saving Crystal's info for our next family portrait session.

Crystal did an awesome job with my two young girls, ages 6 and 8. She brought lots of good props and knew the perfect locations to get beautiful shots. She really did well making my girls smile, laugh and just have fun. The pricing for her package was very reasonable and the quality of the pictures were amazing. I highly recommend her!

Crystal is a super-star with kids! She got along so well with our 2.5 year old. Our daughter set through the shot, looked unto camera and was so comfortable that we got all sorts of her fun expressions caught on camera. She is very easy going and knows all the right angles and tricks to make your photos look amazing! Love the experience and would highly recommend Crystal for any occasion you what to memorize.

I wanted to gift my parents family portraits for their anniversary so I went searching on yelp and found crystal. It was a great choice my parents and family loved the pictures. She was very flexible with the scheduling. We were 12 in total 6 adults and 6 kids and it's challenge to get that many kids to sit and take a picture but she did it ! Wish we would have hired her for our wedding !
