M of Valparaiso says “I was very nervous going into my session, not knowing quite what to expect and worried I wouldn’t know how to look or pose right. Crystal helped me feel at ease right away. She was easy to talk to and knew how to keep the mood light while we talked. She also wasn’t afraid to instruct me or help me pose to get the best possible photos. The resulting images look fantastic, and both the photos and the experience made me feel confident and great about myself. Thank you, Crystal!!” December 5, 2012

S of Bourbon says “I was very nervous about the whole experience, but Crystal made me feel at ease and was a joy to work with!” December 3, 2012

M of Constantine says “I loved every second of this! I was very nervous at first but you made me feel totally comfortable. This started out as a Christmas gift to my hubby but by the time I had my hair and makeup done and saw my first pic I realized, this was great for me as a woman!! I have a new found confidence in myself and feel totally sexy all the time!! You are amazing at what you do and I will not hesitate to refer people to you!!! Thanks again for everything!!!” October 28, 2012

J of Granger says “This was truly an experience of a lifetime! Prior to my session I was extremely nervous and anxious, I didn’t know what to expect or how to feel around complete strangers. When I arrived at the studio, Crystal was there to greet me and instantly felt like we had been friends for years. Crystal, Miss T, and myself talked and laughed and spent time getting to know each other while I was getting my hair and makeup done. When it was time to get my pictures taken I felt great, I felt not only beautiful but relaxed and ready to go! The session went great, I couldn’t have asked for it to go better, the only thing I wish I could go back and change is I wish it was longer! I was having so much fun that when it was over I didn’t want to leave. Prior to my session I would have never expected to feel that way. It was so amazing and empowering! I was so excited and anxious to see my photos at my peep show. When I saw the pictures of myself I was speechless, I could not believe my eyes. I was shocked that those images were really me and Crystal was able to capture beauty not only beyond words but that I didn’t even know I had. When it came down to selecting pictures I had an extremely difficult time narrowing down likes and dislikes. I do not believe that there was one I disliked, it just came down to which I loved more! I would like to personally thank you Crystal, you made this an experience I will never forget. I am so happy I not only had the opportunity to meet you but be apart of your passion for photography. You are so talented and make dreams of woman feeling beautiful and capturing that come true. You’re amazing! I’d love to come back in the future!”  October 25, 2012.

H of Elkhart says “I was really nervous, and felt like I should’ve spent more time at the gym beforehand. As soon as I walked in the door I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. Afterward I felt like a rockstar. After having 3 kids in the last 3 years this was exactly what I needed!” August 13, 2012.

M of South Bend says ”I was so nervous when I arrived and was quickly put at ease by Crystal’s upbeat and fun personality. I had such a blast and the finished results was AMAZING!!!!

“I loved the afternoon I spent feeling beautiful and my husband loved the outcome!! Thank you I can’t wait to do it again!” posted on Facebook by H.L. on February 21, 2012.

“It was really fun working with you. You did AMAZING work!!! It was near impossible to pick just 10, but I think I did it. I did not realize I could produce so many great pics (I don’t think I am photogenic).” email from K.T. on February 4, 2012.

“I loved working with Behind Closed Doors! Her and Tosha were so sweet and amazing! I would recommend ANYONE to go to them!” posted on Facebook by A.Y. on January 21, 2012.

“If you want to go to Behind Closed Doors, but you’re nervous… don’t be! Your pictures will be amazing no matter how you feel about your body. I did my BCD session early in my second pregnancy and I’m not a slender person to start with. Figured I wasn’t going to get any skinnier or cuter and it was now or never Man, am I glad I went! I got the add-on hair and makeup pkg and that was a ton of fun just by itself. My pictures came out great and I actually had a hard time picking which ones I wanted to order for a photo book. They were all honestly THAT good because BCD works extra hard to make you look and feel fabulous during your session. My husband was blown away when I gave him the final photos. I’ll definitely come back to BCD!” posted on Facebook by K.N. on December 19, 2011.

“Five Stars! Having done a super-secret boudoir session (because it was a gift) and an awesome vintage session, Crystal is a master at making you feel like a goddess and enticing you to take fantastic pictures! If you’re too nervous to go “all out” with lingerie, then do a pin-up style shoot. She really has something for everyone! Pricing is incredibly fair and you’ll receive top quality printed images.” posted on Google Places by Colin&Emily on March 14, 2011.

“I just had one of these sessions for myself, I had the photos done for my husband for Valentines day. I haven’t seen all of the photos yet. But I had a great time with Crystal. She made me feel completely comfortable. And I know my husband is going to love the photos, what a great Valentines Day gift for that special person in your life. Thanx Crystal for being so personable and professional and making me feel wonderful during the couple of hours we spent doing the shoot. If ever I decide to do this again I will surely be in touch!
