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.

This morning I woke up, got my kids off to school and headed out to a birth, and whoa what a birth! I walked into the room and began to feel out the mood and it was immediately clear that this mama was strong, focused, present and working hard. She and her husband worked seamlessly together through waves of contractions and pushing to help a beautiful, perfect baby girl into the world! The whole thing was lovely and inspiring! Congrats Jayson and Sherry on your precious gift! I can’t wait to see you again for newborn pictures.



Meet Sarah, another of the lovely midwives here in Bellingham! I have been able to be at a few births that Sarah has assisted with and she is just lovely and attentive and an all around wonderful woman. Yesterday Sarah and I met up after I picked up my kids and their friends from school. Between the two of us we had 5 kids in tow! Sarah’s little man and mine are just a couple months apart and were so cute running through Elizabeth park and climbing on the playground together (are rather alongside one another). We even managed to get Sarah some head shots during our sunny, but chilly time at the park! Here’s my favorite headshot from yesterday of Sarah and a couple others from our outing.



Well hello there! I am so behind blogging because of all the wonderful sessions I have been out shooting and editing. It’s the busy season for is portrait photographers and in Bellingham we are dodging the rain and trying to make the most of the color fall leaves dropping everywhere. Last week I got to do one of my favorite types of sessions for this time of year- a large family group. Call me crazy, but I LOVE shooting extended family grandparents. I think its often times the only way people get pictures of their parents after they become grandparents and its so economical for a 2-3 immediate families to share a big family session.

This family really turned up the challenge level by including a dog, a set of newborn twins and two camera shy kids in the mix! Here’s some of my favorite from our session, enjoy!
