The reception area of Crystal Tseng Portraits Studio

Crystal creates photos that incorporate the concepts of minimalism to allow the beauty of your photos lasting forever. Her photos are elegant and clean with a strong focus on emotions and connections. Hanging a piece of portrait art created by Crystal will not add the noise to your home, but only the love floating in the air. Crystal believes that photos that capture emotions and love remind us of the values that matter the most in our lives. This belief has helped her bring up the genuine laughs, smile, and interactions in families. If you believe in these values and have a faith to the power of love like Crystal does, please let Crystal capture the precious moments for your family.

Headshot of Crystal Tseng, owner and photographer of Crystal Tseng Portraits located in Ellicott City, MD.

I am Crystal, the artist and photographer behind Crystal Tseng Portraits. I started photography because I was very curious about the technical terminologies of a camera and was fascinated by how I could possibly manipulate the shutter speed, aperture, and lighting directions to express how I see the beauty of this world.  I also have tremendous passion on how a simple arrangement of the furniture or decorations in a room can easily change our mood and create peace to our mind.  By now I have more than 12 years of photography and design experience. And every day I enjoyed a lot on helping families create arts and feel blessed that I can take pictures of my clients in a style that is de-cluttered and peaceful to empower the love and living quality we are pursuing. If my photographic style speaks to you too, please don't hesitate to contact me. It would be an honor for me to hear about your story and be your family photographer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What packages do you offer for the photoshoot?

There is no pre-committed bundled packages for you to book a session. You will pay a session fee for us to design and start your portraiture journey. After the photoshoot, Crystal will help you customize your order on the photos you love after you see all the images from your photoshoot. You may choose to preserve your memories in our sustainable photo products, such as professionally varnished canvas wall portraits or heirloom photo albums. 

What is the session fee?

The session fee covers one hour of design and outfit consultations, cost, time and my expertise for a professional photoshoot and production. (Photos and products are sold separately.)

What is a consultation appointment and when do I need one?

A consultation appointment is an in-person appointment where we will discuss your needs and expectations and design for your photoshoot. It is also the chance I get to know about you, your family and all the personalities that will help get everyone engaged in the photoshoot. I will help you schedule a consultation appointment after a pre-consultation via email.
