This is MY process:

Step 1: Review my website

Once you have read the FAQ's and seen my portfolio, send me an email with your requests and I will reply within 24 hours. I will ask you a couple questions to help me envision your perfect session and see if I'm the right photographer for you. I'll attach my pricing guide with my Collections and A La Carte items at this time.

Step 2. Pay your $150 Session Fee

I'll send you an invoice and contract to finalize the booking process. A $150 Session Fee must be paid to reserve session dates and is seperate from your photo purchases. Choose from the listed Collections that would work best for your family or build your own Collection from my A La Carte items. Additional purchases may be made once you've seen your photos. Collections begin at $450, minimum A La Carte purchase is $300 in addition to the session fee. I offer payment plans for any and all bookings.

Step 3: Time for your session!

Whether it be a studio session or outdoor, Second Star is honored to be of service. Depending on the session you booked will determine the session duration. You will receive your online proofing gallery two weeks following your session to pick your photos.

My daughter (Brittany Wagner) and her cute little family got their pictures taken here by Crystal and she is just AMAZING! She's great with kids (especially a 2 yr old lol) and her pictures are just so so beautiful! Couldn't of asked for a better person and venue to get pictures done for any reason! Just AMAZING! Great job Crystal 💗

Crystal did absolutely phenomenal with our baby Luke’s newborn photos. He looks like the cutest little bean🥺❤️ She was so gentle, kind, and patient. He never cried. Just slept through it all thanks to Crystal’s baby whispering skills 🥰 I’m beyond in love with how the images turned out and I almost want to have another baby just so we can do another session 😂❤️

The experience with Second Star Portraits after having my twins was worth it in itself! 4 days post partum I was able to sit on the couch and relax while someone else handled my babies. it was the first true break i had since bringing them earth side. Not to mention the amazing pictures that I am so gladly framing down my hallways for family and friends to see.
She’s exactly who i’ll be using for all photography needs with any of my kids! She was so adaptable and truly out did my expectations of a photogr
