I am Crystal...although I'm usually called mom by my two kids or Mrs. Wendlandt by the 20 kids in my classroom! I am a mom, a kindergarten teacher, and a photographer. I live with my amazing family and 3 crazy, wonderful pups in North Dakota where I cannot get enough of the wide open fields and unending sky. I also have a great love of Wisconsin's dairy farms and trees as well as Montana’s mountain views, wild lupines growing on the hillsides, and beauty in every direction! I want to see the world and photograph every part of the way! Photography has pushed me to think outside the box, to make so many new friendships, help families create new memories, and provide people with images that hopefully they and their families will cherish for generations.
