Crystal Garcia Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi I'm Crystal Garcia, and I am living and loving in Bellingham, Washington with my hip-hop dancing 6 year old boy, animal loving 5 year old girl, 10 month old ball of squish and a brilliant and fun husband of 9 years.
    I specialize in pregnancy portraits, on call birth photography (without the use of flash), newborn portraits in your home, plus child and family photography. You can find more of my work on Facebook here.

My last baby turned 1 today. I think I need therapy for just that one line. It has been a year of getting to know this big personality that has joined our little family and I can’t believe it has gone by already. I love this little one so much, I can barely stand it and I am thankful to have gotten another chance to raise a baby through his first 12 months of life, there is truly nothing like this period of time.

Last Sunday we had a little party with our family and my Dad and step mom and this morning we all went out and shared a Monster Donut from Rocket donuts, that was bigger than Silas’ head. Here are some picture of Silas’ party and is 12 month photos and a flash back to last year at his birth.

    It was a blessing to celebrate Silas’s first Birthday! Thanks for the invite and going with my time/date kurfluffle! Love you guys! Glad you could get a few moments without Silas too! (I remember what you put your mom and I through!)

On Monday morning I was getting up to take Brian to the airport and I got a text from a midwife that someone was on their way to the new Birthroots Birth Center in labor. I didn’t know the name of the mama, but it sounded like I was supposed to be there so I got everyone ready and asked my friend if I could bring all three of my kiddos to her house at what ended up being 6:45am and headed to the birth. There I met and amazingly strong and beautiful mama, her husband and their doula, Christi.Apparently Bethy was planning on calling me that day to connect with me about photographing her Cialis 10mg birth, but went in to labor instead so Jessie, her midwife, texted me to come. So let this be a PSA to book your birth photographer in advance, haha!:)

Here are some of my favorites from her birth that can be shared.:)And also the family’s slideshow! Thanks for bravely inviting me to your birth, without having ever met me before Bethy, it was an honor! Congratulations on your new baby and being the first birth at the center!

I love including a shot of the sky around the time of a birth. Often mamas don;t get to go sit and stare at the sky for a while.:)It was a beautiful day for a birth.

A few weeks ago I packed up my littles and headed over to the Kitsap peninsula to spend a few days with my big sister and her family. Her oldest daughter Jennifer is about to begin her senior year of high school and she asked me to take her senior pictures! First of all, I can’t believe my niece is a going to be graduating high school this year, that she is driving and that today she started her first job! Secondly I was so excited to photograph her! I normally don’t photograph many seniors. To be honest, it is because I didn’t feel cool in high school and senior photography intimidated me because I still feel pretty uncool. But, when I began to look at senior photography, I was Priligy saddened by the overuse of make up and accessories and often sexual poses. This made me feel like I had the chance to photograph my niece being herself and looking her age in places she loves and poses she felt comfortable and confident in, one that didn’t over sexualize her.

The best part is, we had a great time together and I loved spend a couple hours hanging out, talking about life and growing up and shooting-it was a blast!  Thanks Jennifer for showing me how much I love photographing people of any age and spending  a morning with me and letting me be your senior photographer. I love you and I am so proud of the woman you are growing up to be-beautiful, strong, hard working and bright!

    You both did an outstanding job! I wish I’d had an Aunt as talented & helpful at that time of my life. I can’t recall my graduation and only have one photo in my cap and gown.

    I can’t believe my little cousin is so big already! I’ve missed out on so much of her life (and everyone else’s) by moving out east. What beautiful pictures! You are truly talented.
    Love,
    Rebecca Austin
