They say a picture can speak a thousand words, but they are so much more than that. Pictures capture precious moments and suspend them in time forever. That's the spirit behind Crystal Kelly's business: Capture Life Events Photography and Videography.
In fact, one of her favorite things about her career in photography is the ability to forever play a part in the story of each photograph. Whether it's a newborn, wedding, maternity shoot, or anything else, these are big moments in the lifetime of each person. It's a special thing to be able to archive it perfectly for each person to remember forever.
Her studio was much different than any other I'd ever been in. It was large, and covered with her work, with multiple stations for taking photos. What stood out though, was how prepared she was for each session in terms of backdrops and wardrobe. She has an entire closet full of clothes, dresses, and outfits for men, women, and children of all ages. That's something I haven't yet seen from a photography studio.
That's not the only thing that sets her business apart though. One of the other unique things she brings to the table is a customizable service package. She allows her clients to choose the photos they like the most, and how they want them printed. That means the client chooses exactly the things they want, and that's what they pay for. Her work is fantastic and very well prepared, so clients always end up choosing quite a few different options.
Her work is so well-done, that she has clients she's worked with for years, capturing all the major moments of their life: engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn, and beyond. She's built quite a reputation for her work, and most of her new clients come from referrals from her existing clients.
Crystal started the business 9 years ago, as a way to provide herself with more flexibility over her old job. In fact, that's her other favorite thing about what she does. She's able to keep a schedule that allows her to be there for those big moments in her own children's lives, that way she can capture it both in photography and in memory.
For Crystal, photography is a passion, art, and a career- all in one. She told me multiple times how much she loves what she does. So you know when you go to Capture Life Events, you're getting the personal touch of someone who truly enjoys making the best moments of your life into something you can remember forever.
