Photography related background

I attended Modeling School in Nashville, Tennessee where I learned the art of hairstyling, posing, and many additional skills I adapt to each El Campo photography session. One of the most important lessons that I brought with me into my photography is the art of storytelling through the lens. As a mother of four I went back to school to earn my photography degree and built my brand doing what I love. Once-in-a-lifetime memories aren't given a second opportunity to capture in print. I ensure those intimate moments are held close to your heart with portraiture to help tell the story. I started working as a photographer n 2011 and opened my El Campo Location in 2017.  Since Opening Cristals work has been featured on Inside edition, People, Good Morning America, ABC, The Knot, Fox News, and more.

Let me introduce you to my beautiful family. I have 4 amazing  children; from left to right- Keanen, Kendal, Aisley, my loving husband & co wedding photographer Shaun, Myself, and last but not least youngest son Ashton.  


My family has supported my career every step of the way and are by far my biggest fans. I appreciate every second with my family and understand the value of these moments.


As you can guess my children are very use to having their portraits taken and these are by far, my most prized collection of works.
