"Crystal Phelps photography is unlike any other family photographer in the Charlotte area... she has such passion and excitement for her craft, and it absolutely shines through in the way she captures these special moments. She has a gift for making everyone feel at ease and has an incredible sense of patience with little ones who just refuse to be still - but she always gets the most perfect pictures! Not only do her photos blow me away... but the "experience" of opening one of her packages after the session keeps the magic going. Her delivery is always beautiful, adorned in colorful tissue paper, pearl-shaped chocolates, old-fashioned mason jars, and beautiful keepsake albums hand-selected by Crystal. I can't imagine trusting anyone else to capture these special years as our kids grow." Jenny S.
"Where do I BEGIN..... We truly LOVE Crystal, she is so much fun when doing a session! The energy is so radiant and it shows through her pictures. She always has some sort of "surprise" during her sessions. It's funny because I have used A LOT of photographers and I always find myself comparing to her. Oh, and the treats she sends in the mail are to die for!!!!!" Ashley P.
"Crystal has a magical way of capturing the very heart of my family. I will never forget how she took extra care to catch my six month old's adorable, just-for-mama open mouth kisses. I had never mentioned to Crystal how special the kisses were to me! But instinctively she knew that the kisses were both precious and fleeting. Every time I look back on those sweet images I am transported back to little-baby days. I am so grateful to Crystal for giving me a way to preserve that moment, and so many, many others." Courtney G.
"I don't think I can put into words how amazing your photography of my girls always turns out. You literally bring tears to my eyes when I receive the pics and see how beautifully you capture my girls. You have an amazing gift to make them smile and put them at ease so they behave and look their best. Your vision for each session is always so unique and creative and has never let me down. I'm so glad that I chose you to capture Averey's newborn pics because from there, we have been in love with your art of photography! I can't wait until my girls get older and really enjoy the smiles, giggles, and love you capture with every picture! Thanks for being so amazing!!!!" Julie P.
"Crystal, thank you so much for all the beautiful images you have captured of our family over the past two years. Not only are you able to create lasting keepsakes to help us remember McKinney as she grows, but you have always been able to capture her growing personality as well. Years from now we will be able to look back and remember more than what she looked like, we will be able to remember her spirit. Thank you for freezing little moments of her life that we will be able to keep forever." April S.
"Crystal, we cannot thank you enough for capturing such beautiful pictures of our children/family. The children felt so comfortable and at ease with you and it shows in the pictures. We appreciate your patience and kindness towards them. We look forward to working with you again!!" Maria P.
"Crystal is able to capture my children in motion and make it into memory that will last a lifetime. No one else is able to capture that special moment in time like she can . . . She has a gift and that gift keeps giving to me every time I walk in a room and see my kids faces over the fireplace." Heather L.

Where are you and where will my session be? I am located in Mooresville, NC- just north of Charlotte on beautiful Lake Norman. Sessions typically take place in Lake Norman area or Charlotte. Together, we will decide the perfect location for your session. Newborn sessions take place in your home.
What kind of sessions do you offer? I specialize in child photography. I also photograph families and newborns. My passion lies in capturing the connections within families. If you have a family session with me, it will be connection-based with most props being saved for Daydream sessions., Daydream sessions are custom sessions created around who your child is today.
When do you photograph newborns? Newborns are best photographed during the first 7-10 days of life. My newborn style is described as organic and relaxed with a lifestyle approach. I don't ever force newborns in a pose, as I think they are just perfect the way they are and that's how mommas want to remember them.
What is included in my session? As a mom myself, I understand the desire to keep all of your images from your session. That is why I offer simple, all-inclusive collections with all of your images on USB as well as boutique items.
When do I get my images? Within two weeks of your shoot, you will receive a link to view your images in a private online gallery. You will have 5 days to place your order. There is a re-hosting fee if you need additional time.
How far out are you booked? I typically book one to three months in advance.
What is the retainer fee? The creative fee is a retainer that secures your date and time. It is due within 7 days of booking and locks in price for you.
How do I book a session with you? I am so glad you asked! You can email me at email@example.com
