Hello! I'm Crystal. I live with my two sweet kids, husband, and a goldendoodle in Lake Norman, NC. We've also recently added two hamsters to the mix so everyday is an adventure around here! I grew up in South Carolina and completely slept through a tornado during Hurricane Hugo. I still REALLY like to sleep. My love for photography developed in college when I had a few friends teach me the basics. While it was a still a hobby, I worked as an OBGYN ultrasound tech - basically a fetus photographer :) I enjoyed running marathons in my free time and even crossed off an Ironman triathlon on my bucket list. Fast forward a few years and my sweet babies gave me the best job ever: 'Mom'. My love for ice cream became greater than my love for running so I needed to discover something new. I started taking a million pictures of my children and capturing these fleeting moments I know I would long for one day. That's how my business started.
I'm watching my kiddos grow up in a blink - that's why capturing who they are right now, today, can't wait. They will never be this little again.I have a passion for capturing these sweet moments in time for families and creating galleries that will become future heirlooms for generations to come! As a mom, I understand we don't want to have to choose which images to keep - we want them all! I also know there has never been a busier time and how important it is to simplify these days. That's why when you book a session with me, you get ALL of your images for one simple price.
And since the days are long but the years are short, I want us to be able to pull out that picture of our babies when we are old ladies and feel that "I love you so much it hurts" feeling all over again. I want us to remember how adorable she was when she giggled with her toothless smile. How our toddler twirled a single strand of hair when he was shy. These are the little things that matter so much. These are your moments, your art. Life doesn't have a rewind button, but I would love to press pause for you.
