Coastal Watershed Council

I love working with nonprofits and small businesses to develop images that help tell their stories. I have been taking pictures for Coastal Watershed Council for the past few years, creating images that have been shared over social media, in emails and annual reports.

They just upgraded their website, and it's fun to see some of these photos integrated throughout the site. 

The organization's mission is to reconnect healthy watersheds to vibrant communities, so we shot these staff photos with the San Lorenzo River in the background.

Here's an image from their annual "Meander" event:

I met up with the Watershed Rangers for a quick 10-minute shoot earlier this Spring at the spot where Branciforte Creek turns into an urban culvert. Many of the photos from that session have popped up on the website and in promotional emails.

Event photos are also shared over Facebook to extend visibility and engagement.

We love working with Crystal. She’s a joy to have at our events, she’s professional, knowledgeable and most of all - incredibly talented. When you put in so much time and energy to make an event great, it’s that much better knowing that the moments will live on so beautifully in Crystal’s photos.
