I became a bride in June 2007 when I married my High School Sweetheart. In 2012 we became parents to the most beautiful baby girl in the world. I have an obsession with Milano cookies, and I don’t go anywhere without my Chapstick. I have a shamrock tattoo on my ankle to always remind me of all the lucky things that I have in my life. The New Kids on the Block still rock my world. I love hugs. I love my Blackberry. I hate feet. I have the 3 coolest dogs in the world. I think all women should own a pair of fabulous, funky stilettos.
I’m also addicted to photography.
I have had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember, but things really started to get serious my senior year of high school when I took a Computer Graphics class. We used these crazy Sony digital cameras that saved the images onto a floppy disk that was inserted into the camera… long before the days of memory cards! (Now mind you, I’m not that old… we’re talkin’ 2001 here, LOL. It amazes me how far technology has come since then!)
After high school I found a job at a retail portrait chain at the mall and met the people who would inspire me and change my life. With advice from my mentors, I bought my first Canon film SLR in April of 2002. I moved up the retail ladder fairly quickly, from being the part time photographer to the full time Studio Manager. 4 studios and 7 years later, I said goodbye to retail photography.
So now, here I am: Crystal Lee Photography.
A work in progress since 2001.
