Hello, I am Crystal!  I am a loving wife and mother to two small children (6) and (3).  I was initially drawn to photography as a way to document the fleeting moments of our lives.  Little did I know this hobby would fill me to the brim with such joy and inspiration.  It has enabled me to invite creativity back into the simple moments of my daily life; watching our son's curls light up in a small patch of golden sunlight,  studying the way the light hits our daughter's dress as she twirls.  It all lights a fire in me, that I feel truly blessed to be able to share with my clients.

Being a mother has given me such appreciation for the precious little moment we are in.  When I photograph a family, I strive to capture their natural core, small idiosyncrasies that make them unique.  The way your partner looks at you, a quick embrace from your toddler, a spontaneous giggle, silly faces and all!  I love silly, I love fun, I love the way family feels and I would truly be honored to capture yours.   I currently live in the beautiful Napa Valley, but being that I am a Sonoma County native I will gladly travel west for a session-it will always be home.
