The Nurse Behind the Lens

Let's capture your birth story

For as long as I can remember, my calling has always been to care for babies, mama's and those around me. Early on, I had two dreams. One, to become a national geographic photographer and two, to become a NICU nurse. While those dreams didn’t exactly play out the way it was in my head (anyone else?), what WAS birthed was a dream and a passion to beautifully blend the both.

I have been a NICU nurse for the last 8 years and have found myself in love with the beginning of life and the breathtaking process of birth. My love for this stage of life has taken me all over Cincinnati and all over the world. As a travel nurse, I have worked in the majority of nurseries and delivery rooms in the tri-state area and I’ve taught neonatal resuscitation to midwives and nurses in Madagascar, Benin and Kenya. 

I am married to my amazing husband Zach and prefer to live life as simply and gratefully as I can.  He truly is my better half and reminds me daily to pursue life joyfully, purposefully & expectantly.  We love Jesus, our families, our fur babies & are passionate about marriage ministry at our home church.  More than likely you’ll find a coffee in my hands and about five books in my bag. I love traveling, documenting our life, writing, being outdoors, living life simply and spending time with those I love. 

It's always been about the babies.

“This is so unbelievably beautiful- your words and your photos.  What a gift you have, and what a gift you have given to us.  We are so grateful.  Your presence in those moments was as a family member rather than 'our photographer' and that is as much a part of our memories of that day as any other part.  Thank you, a million times over.  We love you.”

“Krystal is amazing and so talented!! She did both birth and newborn sessions for us this fall. She made me, my husband, and my newborn baby so comfortable during both of our sessions. Our birth photos were stunning and captured all of the emotions of that life changing day! We still can’t stop staring at them 6 weeks later. Krystal helped us share our birth story with our family without them being in the room!.”

“Krystal was amazing. I didn’t even notice her in the room and she captured some of the most intimate, precious moments of our life. She was patient through labor during the wee hours of the morning and stayed into the afternoon to get shots after family had left.”
