Christal....

I am a Pacific Northwest girl. I have lived in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, and now Alaska.  

Married for 14 years to my wonderful husband Justin. My 4 beautiful, crazy kids, constantly keep me on my toes! Lets be real here, by keeping me on my toes I mean...breaking up fights, cleaning up messes, and trying to get enough sleep:) All of which I don't really seem to be successful at.  My kids are my inspiration, as is the wild Alaska, and simple everyday moments.  

I have a lot of opinions.... I believe in running around outside without shoes on. I believe in taking ourselves a little less seriously, and having a dance party once a day is a requirement. My husband even installed rainbow led kitchen lighting to help have epic dance parties. We're hardcore like that! 

I strive to create images that make you feel something.  I want to photograph honestly, help you see the beauty of your life, and create art that helps you remember what life was like.

I'm a very uncomplicated person.  I love God, my family, photography and ice cream! I love the challenge and creativity that I find with photography. 

Here is a peak into my family, and our vacation to Hawaii.
