Exploring Life & Business with Crystal Tseng of Crystal Tseng Photography

Today we’d like to introduce you to Crystal Tseng.

Hi Crystal, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am the owner of Crystal Tseng Photography, and a certified professional photographer whose skills, knowledge, and professionalism in photography are assured by PPA, Professional Photographers of America. At Crystal Tseng Photography, we create high-quality fine art portraits that bring out the best of clients and connect the family. We offer commercial-level production and quality to everyone who looks for quality and great customer service.

I initially became interested in photography when I was younger as my husband and I used to travel a lot so I was constantly taking pictures. Additionally, I was highly interested in technology and the mechanism of how different camera settings can create different styles of images. From there taking photos became a part of my routine after we had our firstborn. Over time, I seemed to become quite skilled at it, and more and more friends encouraged me to open my own studio. I also love seeing people feel good about themselves through the photos I capture for them. So here I am, the owner of Crystal Tseng Photography.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The first thing is definitely to balance my roles as a mother, a business owner, and a creator. It took me about five years to manage my time in a way where I can stay productive within each role in my life and still find time to learn and grow.

As far as a business perspective, finding the right people and professionals to build up a team with was very challenging. I used to often give in and settle with people who did not share the same values as me or carry a good working attitude. I ended up making up for their mistakes often. Now I have been fortunate enough to land a team of experts who are extremely hardworking, professional, and very sweet at the same time.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Crystal Tseng Photography?
Our primary focus is to create wall art out of clients’ portraits in a minimalist style while emphasizing a strong focus on the genuine emotions within the family. My ability to lead clients through “well-planned” sessions often wins us compliments as the first “real photography professional” they have ever worked with. We strive for the client to feel at ease and relaxed throughout their entire session.

We offer full studio sessions within a luxury environment while carefully selecting outfits for maternity sessions, newborn sessions, cake smash sessions, and more! We also offer professional hair and makeup services, and guidance for outfit selections, including an online styling tool to assist in the coordination of family outfits.

Our minimalist design brings a strong focus to emotions, beauty, and love, which resonate throughout our individual portraits and album spreads alike. Our lighting setups create studio portraits that look more modern and dreamy than traditional styles.

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I believe that photos can capture emotions and love, reminding us of the values that matter the most in our lives. This belief has assisted me in creating genuine laughs, smiles, and interactions with clients.
