Client Reviews

"Crystal is an awesome photographer. She did a great job with my 8 year old child's photography! Our pictures was taken outside and they were gorgeous. She made us feel very relaxed and comfortable with her. She even worked with my son to get him to give a real smile instead of the fake ones he normally does for pictures! We will definitely be repeat customers!"


"I love going to Forever Me Photography! We started going to her in December and, to this day, continue to go there! Crystal does an AWESOME job on our photos every time. My kids love her. In fact, my 6 year old picked her out at a public event and ran over to say "hi" to her!"

"My daughter's senior session went very smooth. My daughter is shy, but Crystal instantly put her at ease. Crystal listened to our ideas and added thoughts on how to get the best pictures. By the end of the session, my daughter was so relaxed with Crystal that she was able to get the best pictures of my daughter. The finished product was beyond my expectations and I highly recommend Forever Me Photography!"

"Forever Me Photography does amazing work with my very shy child. She is very comfortable with Crystal and really opens up to her. I give Forever Me Photography 5 stars across the board. Parents, this is the best price and quality you are going to find!"

"You’re absolutely AMAZING! NEVER disappointed. You’re pictures are exactly as you advertise…Forever! You’ve got my business for as long as you want it! Thanks so much, you’re truly talented!"

"Thank you, Crystal, for such a wonderful session with my beautiful granddaughter, Addison. Your “mommy’s heart” came shining through in every way – from your patience and understanding of the “oopsy”, to the tender way you moved Addison through each pose. The folks in Illinois are lucky to have such a talented photographer!"

"Crystal did my pictures for my wedding last year and did an AMAZING job! I have gotten a lot of compliments. She captured moments that could/would have been lost by another photographer! I would highly recommend her…you will be satisfied and get your money’s worth!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Crystal in December. Not only did she show her passion for the work she does, she also had shown passion for my family. She did awesome with my 2 year old and 5 year old, along with our 13 year old and caught lots of smiles! She did not rush through the photos, she actually takes her time to capture that perfect photo! This was our first Family photo session since 2007 and We will for sure be seeing her again yearly for our Family Photos!"

"We are so pleased with all of the pictures we had taken recently. You can tell Crystal loves her job and it shows. She is the best with small children!! We will definitely book more sessions."

"I was fortunate enough to have Crystal photograph my baby during his “cake smash” session. It was a really fun idea and she took a lot of time and effort to make beautiful backdrop and props. He absolutely had a ball and she couldn’t have made it any easier for me. I would recommend Crystal to anyone for anything, I think she truly has a gift."

"My husband and I had added a new little member to our family and had not yet gotten family pictures done and our most recent of baby Jayden were his newborn pictures. So I found Crystal through a contest I had entered. We did our family pictures at Glen Oak Park and I was worried if we were able to get any shots at all due to the fact that my 4 month old son did not get his nap in for the day WELL when the pictures came back I was so pleased with the shots that she caught of him actually smiling. My son is 6 months now and I am sure we will be getting pictures again soon"

"Crystal took senior photos of my daughter at Glen Oak Park. She did an awesome job. She listened to our thoughts and ideas, while adding her own professionalism to the session. It was a lot of fun. The photos turned out beautifully. We were extremely happy with everything. Thanks, Crystal!"

"Our family photo session could have very easily had “nightmare” written all over them! With a 15 month old and a 3 year old, we were so nervous about how this session was going to work out! Luckily, Forever Me Photography was amazing! Not only were they extremely helpful with the kids, but they made it fun as well! I could not have been happier with our experience! With a wonderful photographer, affordable prices and fantastic photos, you just can’t go wrong! Thank you Crystal!!"

"Crystal came to our home for newborn pictures. Photographing a newborn can be stressful, since you just can’t predict what they will do. I got peed on (no surprise!) and had to take a nursing break. Through it all, Crystal was professional and helpful. It was obvious she had experience not just as a photographer but as a mom as well. The pictures turned out great! Before she came, we had given her a few examples of shots we wanted. She was happy to do those and some of her own ideas too. Her props made especially cute pictures. I would recommend Crystal to anyone, and will use her in the future."

"Crystal photographed our 3 week old daughter and I am extremely impressed. She did an amazing job and everyone that we have shown the pictures to cant believe the quality for the money we paid. Crystal was extremely patient with us, taking time out so that we could feed/change our daughter, and took the time to make sure to get the “shots” that we wanted. You can tell that she truly enjoys taking the photos as well as developing a relationship with her customers. I would highly recommend Crystal for anyone wanting high-quality photos at a low cost. She has a pleasant attitude, is extremely friendly, and truly a wonderful person who puts her heart into her work!"

"We were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Crystal is not only polite & professional, but fun! She was wonderful with both children (baby and preschool age), and the pictures turned out fantastic. What could have been a frazzling session was enjoyable, and the end product is great. We will certainly be using her again."

"Crystal came to our home since it was too cold to take small children out and about. She had great ideas and worked well with the kids. We are thrilled with the way the pictures turned out!"

"I’ve known Crystal for years, back when we both were doing jobs other than what we wanted to be doing. She certainly has followed her passion and found her niche. She did a great job on promo shots for my newest CD, website photos and other promo stuff. Very easy to work with and great stuff…give her a call."

"Working with Crystal was not only easy but her results were beautifully professional! We really appreciated her flexibility and willingness to work with us on everything from the creative pose ideas we had to photo editing. Her commitment to the art and high level of quality really show through in her work. Thanks Crystal for the Maternity and Christmas pics that have already become family heirlooms in our home!"

"I had been searching for a photographer to do my upcoming wedding photos as well as family photos. I found Crystal and Forever Me Photography! What an awesome find, Crystal really paid attention to detail and took a lot of photos in many different locations to ensure we found what we were looking for. Our photos were so professional. Our pictures are amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the service we were provided. Crystal did our family and engagement photos and we absolutely can’t wait for Crystal to do our wedding photos as well. Thank you Crystal, your work is amazing!!!"

"Crystal has done an excellent job with my fiance and i engagement and family. I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out and she was great to work with. i recommend your work to anyone and everyone who is looking for family pictures or anything else for that matter!
