About Me

Hey! I am very passionate about photography, not only is it my career but it is part of my soul. My happy place is the beach, and shooting a session on the warm sand with the waves is my favorite place to be! I specialize in beach photography however I love to mix up my locations. Let me share my happy place with you and give you some amazing memories to hang on your walls. I have been a professional photographer since 2012 but have been into photography as a hobby for most of my life. 

I am originally from Oregon but I have lived in Texas, North Carolina, Hawaii, Washington and now Virginia. I am an Air Force veteran and extremely experienced with military families. I graduated from Old Dominion University December 2019. I have 2 beautiful children who are 8 and almost 5. 

I am obsessed with typical girly drama tv shows, breakfast food, traveling, exploring new places, camping, being crafty, and shopping. I love connecting with other photographers and professionals in the area as well!

I am already ready for when I have this baby I want her to do our pictures as well as my husband's homecoming. Won't have anyone else do our pictures but her.



my baby girls pictures are absolutely perfect. i couldn't be more happy. Crystal was a pleasure to work with and super patient with a baby!



Very happy with the pictures she took of my husband and I prior to his deployment! I'll cherish them forever!
