About Me

I’m Crissie.
I love art.
I couldn’t live without watermelon or pizza. Or the Food Network.
I absolutely love food. Eating it. Photographing it. Making it.
I am dangerously obsessed with Disneyland.
I beat Super Mario 3 in college after ahem, a few missed classes.
I pretended to be Australian the day I met my husband. We have been
together for almost 12 years. Married 5.
We just had our first baby, Izzy.
We have a 110lb furry, chocolate lab named Gus.
I quite literally have the world’s coolest family.
Eegees. Need I say more?
I am a graphic designer.
I am a jewelry maker.
I grew up in Tucson and love it with all my heart.
I have always had an obsession with photography from an early age. At one point I tried modeling (like for pretend). Insert hyena style laughter here. Then I realized I was on the wrong side of the camera. Sorry, still laughing. I used to steal my parent’s video camera at soccer games and spin it around. Who doesn’t like watching sports upside down? Hey, just trying to be creative. Got back into photography recently and haven’t been able to put the camera down since. I absuloutely love catching the moments, the less posed stuff. I love capturing your unique personality, laughs and snorts.I look forward to meeting you!

Kendal Sheppard - Hi, Crissy!

This is Kendal, Cindy’s friend from high school. :) Adam and I are just booked our wedding venue for October 15, 2011 and are searching for photographers. We came across anothe photographer that we thought we may use, but then Cindy suggested you! Your photos are breathtaking and I can see how you truly capture the feeling of the environment and each person’s uniqueness. I have a feeling that we may not be able to afford your quality and talent, but I would like to enquire about your prices just in case we can move things around in our buget enough. I saw that you have mimi shoot- do you think that would be enough time for engagement photos? When you can please let me know your prices and/or suggestions. Thank you!
