I’m Crystal and I am a photographer and creative director in the St. Louis area. During the week you can find me working as a creative director at Marketplace: The Food Marketing Agency. Web, print, packaging, branding. You name it. I design it. On the weekends you can find me running around taking photos of newborns, children, families, pets, and the occasional llama.

I am excited to offer my photography services for families in the surrounding St. Louis area and I am available in select commercial projects. I am extremely passionate about creating beautiful, authentic, and emotional imagery of people and animals. Photography fills me with joy. I am genuinely thrilled to see your reactions to the photos I have taken for you. I would be honored to captures memories for your family whether human or pet. Email me if you want to chat about a session or anything else for that matter! I look forward to hearing from you.



Check out the list of photography services I offer.

Birth, newborn, & children

I am available to capture those precious moments right after baby is born all the way through toddlerhood. Birth announcements, monthly updates, 1 year birthday party, documentary lifestyle. There are endless possibilities we can explore.






Pregnancy is such a beautiful time in life. Capturing that beautiful belly of yours and the intimate connection you feel is near and dear to my heart.






Dogs & Cats

I have been photographing dogs for both residential and commercial projects for over a decade now. I’m a little obsessed with dogs as I have 5 of them. I would love to capture beautiful portraits, interactions between your family and your pets, and even those precious last week of your pets life.







Nothing is more beautiful than a couple in love. Documenting this deep connection is amazing.






Children & Family

Capturing the love and light between your family is a passion of mine. Yes we can capture those formal shots. But after that we can really have some fun! Whether it is hiking around a park or documentary bedtime with your little ones.






Documentary Lifestyle

Wouldn’t it be amazing to look back twenty years from now and have photos of those everyday moments with your children. Reading books in bed, making a fort in the living room, preparing dinner together. I would love to collaborate on a real-life documentary session with your family. I promise you will cherish these photos more than the posed straightforward smiling shots.







I am available for select projects involving children, animals, and food.
