If you know Crystal, you know the girl can sing.  So, it’s no surprise that she is in the top eight in a radio singing competition.  If you haven’t met Crystal yet, she has been a long time friend of mine and she has been given an awesome gift.  Back in our high school days, we even sang together in some competitions 😀  You can hear her beautiful voice here on her competition page, under Crystal Groscost.

Needless to say, when Crystal came to me to take some photos, I got excited, REALLY excited. Crystal has natural beauty and a sense of style that matches her spunky little personality.  So of course, she can make some pretty awesome photos.  The day of the shoot arrived and we met at Picasso’s Coffee Shop and this totally happened… love love love…

Remember that spunk I talked about?  Exhibit A…. lol

Then she turned it ON


She spotted the perfect chair in a salon we passed by…

I think there’s something magical about these bricks and Crystal’s  pretty skin and hair.

Nothing better than hitting up the railroad tracks at sunset….

Crystal, thank you so much for being a great friend through the years, and showing me that it’s a beautiful thing to chase a dream ***
