About Us

Hi there! We are Sarah (left) and Krystal (right) the ladies behind the lens! We are two creative moms with a sense of humor who love capturing beautiful moments one photograph at a time.

A little story about us.. we both graduated from Boyertown Area Senior High School together, both went to college to study the arts and reunited our friendship while mommin'! After many conversation (and always having our cameras at our sides) we both said "let's do this!!"

Our goal is to make you and your family as comfortable as possible so we can capture the real you! We work together to capture all those moments you are creating with your family. One of us is usually directing and at times we may both be shooting to be sure we capture those joy-filled photographs.

Getting to know us, getting to know all about us!!

All About Sarah:

Hello , I'm Sarah and this is the Richards family!

A little bit about me, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Kutztown University with a BFA in Fine Arts concentration in Painting. After graduating college, I worked as an artist doing commission painting. I then decided to get into the financial world where I became a branch manager. I have always loved working with people and getting to know their story. I left the corporate world to be a domestic engineer and raise my daughters. This is when my passion for creating unique photos began.

I started putting my kids in floor set ups I had created using everyday objects I found around the house. I came up with these setups while nursing in the middle of the night! My brain is always thinking outside the box. I'm constantly looking at my surroundings to get ideas about amazing photos I could create.

All of this has lead me to where I am today! I love creating beautiful images, meeting new people and capturing their story!

ALL ABOUT Krystal:

Hey there! I am Krystal! Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little before I get to know you. I find everyone’s story intriguing! I’d be more than happy to get to know you more than just as a client (hopefully we become friends). A little bit about me! I have 2 little kids that keep me super busy, a loving husband and a 13 year old dog named Kaya. I love a great Margarita and a beautiful sunset! I am the family manager of the house. It is a wonderful job but some days it has its challenges (you feel me mama's).

Growing up I have always had a love for art and photography. I continued my education at West Chester University. I graduated from West Chester University with a BFA in Graphic Design. My Senior year I was awarded the "Dean's Award for the Best Design." I continued on with Graphic design at a few Design Firms. While working in design, I started a side business doing family/newborn photography (K&M Studios). A few years later I left Graphic design and went full- time at my mother’s dog grooming business and photography.

Tragically everything came to a stop when my mom passed away unexpectedly on vacation. She suffered a massive heart attack. My world was rocked!!! My mom was my best friend and my business partner and I miss her more than anything. Anyone that has been in my shoes knows how hard it is. During all this I was a couple months pregnant with my first child. I still continue to grieve. Through this I've learned how important it is to capture moments with loved ones... you never know when they will be taken from this earth. I treasure the images and videos I have of my mom and I share them with my children. This is why I do photography and why it means the world to me!

I know life is crazy busy, but let me remind you don’t wait! Let’s get to capturing your memories together!!

"Sarah and Krystal at Artfully Captured were fantastic! We had 3 graduates and had not taken professional pictures for 10 years. They were able to put all of us at ease and take some wonderful photos! We are so happy we chose them to capture this time in our lives! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
